    He would easily get over a billion if he put the team up for sale. No doubt about it.

    Once the new stadium is in place the Cowboys will be the most valuable franchise. If they happen to win a Super Bowl again they would pass the Redskins even without the new stadium.

    Its more impressive when you consider that he made every single penny of that during his lifetime, as opposed to the heirs and heiresses that make up a good part of the list.

    This is what blew my mind .... #34 H Ty Warner a billionaire five times over for coming up with Beanie Babies. Little plush toys made him $5 billion and the 34th richest human being in the world.

    I wouldn't mind being the founder of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page either. 31 years old and $4,000,000,000 in assets.

    Closer to 20 but they sell a bunch of Chinese and Taiwanese made crap at about 1000% mark up so make out like bandits. Wal-Mart is a prime example of why you dont allow communist countries to operate on free trade treaties.

    Wal-Mart is facing some problems now though because communities don't want them built in their area. They are seen as a blight on nice communities. They have been forced out of a few places altogether.

    Sam Walton followed an extremely legal and smart business plan. The gov't should take note though and apply the lessons learned.

    Look at Microsoft. Allen, Ballmer and of course Gates plus a large part of Jobs cash cow.

    A lot of these people did things bordering on illegal as did old time money barons lik Standard Oil and the Rockefellers but its only cheating if you get caught.

    Good stuff and I agree....but they do provide the consumers and as long as those consumers want to pay a lower price then Walmart will thrive and hurt other small town shops....however here is a link to a killer article/story about some of what Walmart does and it really is kind of dirty IMO.

    http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/77/walmart.html

    I would post the article but it is pretty long...but still a great read IMO.

    #1 is Manchester United in English Premier League, second is the Yankees, third is the Skins and fourth is the Cowboys.

    The numbers comprise of ticket sales, merchandising, league transfers and private income sources such as media contracts and advertising.

    Man. United and the Yankees have their own TV contracts which inflate their revenues greatly. They do not share these revenues with their respective leagues.
