Forbes names Vikings least valuable NFL franchise
magazine recently ranked NFL teams in order of value with theMinnesota Vikings
coming out at the bottom, due primarily to their home in the much-malignedHHH Metrodome
. "That's simply because of their stadium," Senior editorMichael 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 beleagueredWashington Redskins
topped the charts at $1.26 billion. TheDallas Cowboys
andNew England Patriots
were the other two teams breaching the billion-dollar mark. The Vikes were ranked 30th last year, butArizona
increased sponsorships and ticket sales, leaving the purple in the cellar.
