The Kansas City Chiefs have the seventh-worst owner in the National Football League, according to a ranking by Forbes.

Forbes downgraded the Hunt family for its five-year franchise value increase of just 3 percent and a five-year winning percentage of 36 percent.

Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford Sr. was rated the worst owner in the NFL, based on a 3 percent decline in the teamís value and a 23 percent winning percentage in the past five years. The title of best owner went to the Mara and Tisch families, owners of the New York Giants, which posted a 33 percent increase in franchise value and a 60 percent winning percentage in the past five years.

Forbes said the average NFL team has increased in value by 8 percent during the ratings period.

The big increase in value for the Giants & Jets is the new stadium they moved into. Same for the Cowboys.

KC renovations didn't result in an increase in value?

I'm still amazed that with all the "renovations", they still have that sh!t field down there.

Either get field turf or install some ground heating system for the grass so it doesn't die like Green Bay has.

Some but not like a brand new stadium would espeically not a brand new stadium in the largest media market while almost doubling the luxury suites like MetLife Stadium did.

The Chiefs have doubled the franchise value in the last decade. Don't think Clark is worried about this since he isn't selling. Maybe CP could pool together $1.2 billion to take over.

They're idiots... Clark's the worst!!! He provide no hope for the city, so he's the worst. As for the value....it's like a bad restaurant, sooner or later not many folks are going to bother coming... Right now, he's serving shit pies, and it's starting to show. Too bad he might not be able to talk good players and coaches into coming and playing/coaching for his dumb ass... Let's hope he realizes he's an embarrassment and sells!

Who is going to buy and keep the team here? If the Hunts sell...good bye KC...

That's a horrible list. The team is in rebuilding mode, and let's face it unless you're in a huge market like new York then the overall franchise value isn't gonna raise that much. Hunt has been a very good owner

It's a Free Market System we should be able to work hard and accomplish this goal if we're not Lazy.

and has been for 17 years. Therein lies the problem. Not that it is a small market team.

only 7th worst? I would put him #1 and Mike Brown #2. They are both cheap but at least Brown tries to compete.

Nice turf doesn't put $$$ in Clark's pocket.

during the home $tealers game KC Wolf was wearing The Batsuit (on Sunday Night Football no less). Someone on here was like WTF he doing in that thing and I said " Clark just saved $20 bucks this week on drycleaning the Wolf Clothes."

Got a few thumbs up for that one.

Whaaaaaaa? Ya think maybe, possibly, that KC and Detroit are small markets and in the general "chunk" of the country people fly over going from LA to NYC?

That explains the difference in absolute values more than it does the difference in percentage change in values.

Green Bay is ranked 4th. Smaller market and more isolated. The growth in franchise value correlates very well with winning percentage. We just suck. Lamar Hunt was one of the best owners in football up to the merger. After that, he lost the fire, and never passed it on to Clark. It's a damn shame.

Youre a fucking idiot. We went 13-3 and won the west only to shit ourselves in a home playoff game where nobody fucking punted. Funny thing about this is that the quarterback we had leading us wasn't a first round pick and it was the defense who lost us this game.


Go figure.

That is the year we went to the Super Bowl, right?

Oh wait, that was the year we won a playoff game. No... that isn't right either. At least we went to the playoff and raped the following season. Wait... we didnt? We didn't even make the playoffs? Holy shit! We didn't even have a winning record the following season!?!?!?

But yeah, you are right. :rolleyes:

I agree with this statement. This article looks at owners only from a business perspective. In that world wins and losses are not as important as getting fans into the stands, paying for parking and making money for the team. This team doesn't really have a star that sells jerseys, so they keep payroll down to earn money. Smart business wise, but its not going to increase the value of the franchise. The Chiefs are strictly a money making matter. Lamar Hunt used to want to win. Once Arrowhead was built, that passion went away.

The real difference is between winning and losing, and having a star leading your team. Let's say the Chiefs had tanked this season like the Colts, and were in a position to draft Luck. I guarantee in that in two to three years, Clark Hunt would be right at the top of this list because 1) You have a franchise QB that usually translates to winning on the field and giving your fanbase hope every year that you will be in it, which leads to 2) Increased butts in the seat and passion around town for your product, which leads to 3) Increased prime time and national exposure, selling your product, leading to 4) Increased merchandising and fan identification, leading to 5) Increased franchise value.

This team hasn't had a nationally identifiable face of the franchise for 30 years outside of the two years we had Joe Montana, where the team's exposure and popularity shot through the roof...
