    A sincere Thank You to Mr Robert Kraft and his family. Thank you for being a fan first and a smart business man second!

    Wrong. He has the order exactly right.

    Had Kraft bolted in 1999 for Hartford or many other places not in the Foxboro desert, the team would've been worth quite a bit more.

    I have a hard time believing the Pats are worth more than the Yankees. A nice idea, but I'm skeptical.

    you're kidding, right? name a few of those hartford teams that sell out every game... he didnt do it for love of you and i, he did it for love of money. moving to hartford would have alienated the boston fans (and anyone north)... it was an obvious (and smart) business decision.

    actually, the article placed the yankees as the 5th most valuable sports franchise, below the texans.
