"MONEY" MAGAZINE SAYS COWBOYS TIX RATE AS TOP SPORTS VALUE
Published September 16, 1994
Tickets to a Dallas Cowboys home game are the best overall buy in U.S. professional sports and tickets to a Knicks home game are the worst, according to a MONEY magazine "value ranking" of all 83 pro-football, baseball, and basketball teams. The ranking, which surveyed 1,000 fans nationwide and was commissioned to ICR Survey Research in Media, PA, appears in the magazine's October issue. TOO BAD THE SEASON'S OVER: Of MONEY's top 10 values, eight are MLB teams, two NFL teams: #1 Cowboys, #2 Packers, #3 SF Giants, #4 Indians, #5 Astros, #6 Twins, #7 Expos, #8 Braves, #9 Dodgers, and #10 Marlins. Of the bottom 10, six are NBA teams and four are NFL teams: #74 Lakers, #75 Nets, #76 Eagles, #77 Bengals, #78 Bullets, #79 Celtics, #80 Redskins, #81 Patriots, #82 Pistons, #83 Knicks. WAIT 'TIL THE FOX TROT STARTS: NHL teams are absent from the ranking. MONEY's PR Director Patti Strauss told THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY this morning that since "only 10 percent of our respondents said hockey interested them the most, we decided not to include it."
