Forbes put out another one of their rather meaningless lists earlier this week, this time detailing the World's 50 Most Valuable Sports franchises. Adding to the meaninglessness (Is that a word?) is the fact that the author didn't even explain his methodology behind what "valuable" means in terms of sports franchises. 

Not surprisingly, the NFL dominated this list. All 32 NFL teams (!) made the top 50 list. Formula 1 racing and Basketball added two teams each. Soccer, who actually represents the No. 1 slot with Manchester United, has eight teams in the top 50. And MLB baseball placed six teams on the list. 

The Kansas City Chiefs rolled in at No. 27, with a valuation of $965 million. 

Here are some random notes about the list of 50:
