Even though the Dallas Cowboys are the first American sports franchise to be appraised at $2.1 billion, owner Jerry Jones says he’ll never sell his team.
“I have always thought that it was tribute to the Cowboys and our fans and the visibility,” Jones said after last night’s win over the Giants, per the Dallas Morning News. “I know it doesn’t make one more first down for you. It is really I think a plus for the franchise to be thought of that highly. We all know that no one ever knows until you see something sold with the market and I’m fortunate to say that won’t ever be the case with me or the family, so we’ll never know what it’s worth.”
I don’t blame Jones for not wanting to sell his franchise. I wouldn’t want to sell a money-maker like the Cowboys either. Who wouldn’t want to own one of the most popular teams in all of sports?
Whats amazing is that the Cowboys keep raking in money despite that they haven’t been very successful over the past 15 years.
