Bucs Valued At $981 MillionJuly 17th, 2012
Every year Forbes magazine ranks the value of sports franchises using some sort of top secret formulas that can magically see privately held accounting books.
What a fabulous scam to drive traffic to their website!
Joe has taken their bait and is pleased to say Team Glazer’s Buccaneeers checked in as the 29th most valuable sports franchise in the world with a Forbes value of $981 million.
Joe still remembers all the howling in the local and national media when Malcolm Glazer slammed down $190 million or so in his bid for the Buccaneers and kicked aside George Steinbrenner and various other big shots in 1995.
Glazer overpaid, the pundits said. Ha!
