Forbes names Vikings least valuable NFL franchise

class=img_thumbleft>

Forbes

magazine recently ranked NFL teams in order of value with the

Minnesota Vikings

coming out at the bottom, due primarily to their home in the much-maligned

HHH Metrodome

. "That's simply because of their stadium," Senior editor

Michael Ozanian

said. "They have one of the five worst stadium situations in pro football." Forbes puts a $658 million sticker price on the purple, while the beleaguered

Washington Redskins

topped the charts at $1.26 billion. The

Dallas Cowboys

and

New England Patriots

were the other two teams breaching the billion-dollar mark. The Vikes were ranked 30th last year, but

Arizona

and

Atlanta

increased sponsorships and ticket sales, leaving the purple in the cellar.
