However, over the last decade, the Cowboys valuation has grown 220% from $1.50 billion to $4.80 billion, according to the latest valuations by Forbes, while the average franchise has increased 161% from $960 million to $2.50 billion.

The Panthers had profits of $102 million last season, Forbes said, thanks to ticket sales, merchandise sales and other revenue streams.

The 49ers' inability to draw fans to Levi's Stadium has done little to stunt the continued growth in the value of the franchise, which has topped $3 billion. You'll notice that the Cowboys ($4.8 billion) are almost worth more than the Bengals, Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills combined ($5.1 billion).

Globally, according to Forbes' rankings of July, the Cowboys are followed by baseball's New York Yankees at US$3.7 billion, a figure the Patriots have now tied.
