Panthers 12th on Forbes value list

According to a study by Forbes Magazine, the Panthers are the NFL's 12th-most valuable franchise, with a current value of 1.037 billion.

That's a 1 percent drop over last year, when the Panthers were valued at 1.049 billion. The magazine's study showed that 21 of 32 NFL teams dropped in value last year, the first time that's happened since 1998 when they began tracking the league's finances.

You'll surely hear plenty about that as the league works to negotiate a new labor deal with the players union. Owners cited decreased revenue when they opted out of the collective bargaining agreement, setting the stage for a potential lockout beginning next spring.

Value should go up now with higher ticket prices and higher concession prices.

The NFC East not surprisingly dominates this list, and there no West Coast teams is on this list either. Carolina and Houston are the only teams from the South. Dallas has fans all over the place, so I don't count them as having a exclusively southern fan base. Also, where is Pittsburgh?

Surprised Minnesota is so low.

With a few exceptions, the most valuable teams are generally in teh most populated metros of the country, so its not really all that surprising.

The new stadium pushed the Giants and Jets ahead of the Panthers. When Peyton Manning retires, Indy drops into the 20's.

THE PANTHERS ARE SUPPOSE TO WORTH THIS MUCH AND THEY CAN'T GET ANY BETTER PLAYERS THAN WE HAVE THINK ABOUT IT WE GOT 2 RUNNING BACKS STEVE SMITH AT WR AND A SO SO DEFENSE WHY CAN'T WE HAVE A BETTER TEAM

Lower your voice, mark. No need to yell.

Posted by: pland67 | Aug 26, 2010 2:16:17 PM

I agree with Mark.

Richardson just gets PAID. Doesn't answer any questions, does NO interviews, allows JP to leave town and get nothing in return, keeps a BUM like Delhomme around waaaayyy to long, doesn't even consider bringing in a guy like B. Marshall to play WR#2...outrageous! I wish the Panthers the best this year, however I'll be watching them from my couch. NC we deserve better.

My only beef with the team is that with all this economic uncertainty, ticket prices went up. Are they supposed to go up every year? Why never down? We have had PSL's since '95, but when my kid is 40 (currently 2) how much will upper deck tickets be? $150 per game? Where does it end?

Posted by: 2002-Man | Aug 26, 2010 4:27:29 PM

So the offensive line is so so? Beason is so so? Davis, although injured now, is so so? You people need to learn, no matter how much a team is worth, they still have to abide by the salary cap rules. Yes they let Peppers walk but what would you have them do? Franchise him again for 21 million dollars so he gets another 12 sacks? Almost 2 mil a sack for what reason?

Posted by: MrBernz | Aug 26, 2010 4:57:41 PM

What hurts is seeing the Ravens stack up with not only Flacco but Bulger at QB, then they snag Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth at WR while for the nth year straight we hear "Who will be the receiver opposite Smith?" They have a movie subject on OL and a 2,000 yard All Pro running back, and they're known as a DEFENSIVE power behind Ray Lewis. Come on, Panthers! Lose Delhomme and Peppers and get...Who? What's going on? Give us something to love here!

Joe? How about the Panthers playing against the Ravens youre bragging about, keeping them within 10 points & 7 of them were suspect? How about a couple of penalties the Panthers had that brought back goos plays against the Ravens youre bragging about? Doesnt that look like something to love? & the Panthers played them without their full first team offense. I think thats pretty impressive. There were a few bad penalty calls that hindered the Panthers & a couple of dropped balls that could have been caught. Give them time to work on it in the next couple of preseason games then see how they do with all their starters.

Posted by: MrBernz | Aug 26, 2010 10:57:32 PM

AMEN mrbernz! Letting Peppers go has to be the dumbest move ever. Oh, but they said he was too expensive! Now we see this!! Panthers
stop BSing us.You can afford it you're 12th!!!
Get your shit together, girrrl!! A lot of us our going back to our prepanther faves. Hey Redskins here I come!!!!
Also, Panthers it'd be nice if you could return a punt! Good Grief!

Hey, preseason is nothing like the real thing. But I do love the Panthers. That's why I hate 'em sometimes!

Posted by: joebaloba | Aug 27, 2010 1:44:25 PM

Ticket prices went up in this economy in a year when the owner is playing "hide the wallet". That's what I call disrespecting the fans. Finally gave up my PSLs this year. Would have done so if the increase was only 5 cents. Want to talk about required purchase of full price preseason tickets? Handling fee when paying invoice? "Internet convenience fee" if paying online? To me it's more about lack of respect for fans than the actual price.

Posted by: captainobvious | Aug 27, 2010 3:19:36 PM

The owners say they must raise the price or seats but will cry when there are less people in them. Why can't they drop prices if even 10 or 20 dollars it would invite more fans and at least make it look as if they are trying. Hell it's working for Nascar

And about JP HE DIDN'T WANT TO BE HERE!!!
And with his hit or miss seasons why not send him on his way and try to find someone who WILL try . What did everyone want. To make him a francisse player again so he would give us a half ass'd season and collect a check?
