"MONEY" MAGAZINE SAYS COWBOYS TIX RATE AS TOP SPORTS VALUE
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."
