    Yes, Leaf fans can rejoice in the fact that they have had a totally inept and useless laughingstock of a team for almost half a century (!!!!!!)...but at least the owners have been getting rich laughing at them.

    Great post! But was there any doubt??

    I hope no one thought the habs or the red wings (who play out of one of the worst cities on the planet) had a chance.

    Is Deadtroit still even considered a city? Maybe a city of absolute horror, thus why coach Babcock wants to leave after next season.....I wonder where he will go ........

    Imagine what the Leafs could be if they could get on an extended playoff run or actually win the Stanley Cup (no knock intended) considering their highly devoted big following despite being perennially left out. Take another perspective on that potential from a team that barely had a pulse in the 70s and 80s and had far far further to rise than almost any other. Once perennial doormats who couldn't sell out a game if you gave away free beer, the New England Patriots have sold out every game since 1994 and are now the world's 8th most valuable franchise in all sports, 4th in the Western Hemisphere behind bigger metropolitan area teams like the NY Yankees (4th), Dallas Cowboys (5th), Los Angeles Dodgers (6th). My Boston Red Sox are 11th.

    If the Leafs ever get on a real playoff run they could move up fast significantly from their 26th place ranking on this list. And, how are the seemingly most well known hockey team Canadiens not on this list?. I'm shocked.

    BTW: Are we surprised the top clubs on this list are dominated by European Futbol teams? We shouldn't be, though much of the first half of the list is dominated by NFL teams. I believe several of the World Cup Champion Germans came from the 7th ranked Bayern team.

    Cheers,

    George Steinbrenner purchased the Yankees for $10 million in 1973. The Yankees are now worth $2.5 billion. What is your opinion of this appreciation of the asset which according to my math is $2,490,000,000? Do you think Steinbrenner wisely invested that $10 million in 1973? The owners of the asset are now his sons Hal and Hank Steinbrenner.

    I was looking for my GLORIOUS EDMONTON OILERS on the list but alas I gave up the search. Maybe if someone had a list starting from the bottom. There is always next year, said that last year but for sure this year
    I do not think outside the box, I do not think inside the box, I do not even know where the box is.

    The big money in Canada is in Toronto . The leafs have all sorts of revenues coming in. Good for them! And there shareholders.

    The Habs and the Wings are more interested in putting quality on the ice and less interested in selling Koolaid.

    Also, Detroit and Montreal fans can't be fooled like the gullible, unknowledgeable Leaf fans who year after year after year (47 so far!!!!) fall for the propaganda and think they have a hope....until their sad sack losers invariably COLLAPSE yet again...and provide uninterrupted LAUGHTER for fans of the 29 REAL teams in the NHL. Someone should move the Brooklyn Bridge to Hogtown - undoubtedly the same suckers who support the Leafs would be lining up to BUY it!

    Hi EB
    Its actually a excellent remark, since I have followed the exploits of the fabulous
    New York Yankees since the early days of Papa George, they where to baseball what are this habs to hockey.
    On the turf great memories ,I still remember Regie Jackson's home run fest in the World Series of baseball like it was yesterday!Many great memories with the Yankees actually .As for there financial success its like you took the word's out my mouth !LOL
    Thanks for your post naming the Yankees, as great success story, for the Steinbrenner's and over the world Yankees fan
    So yes I do fully agree again with you
    Warmest Regards
    BookerL
