Raiders net worth revealed in Forbes 50

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

So, I'm checking out the Forbes 50 Most Valuable Sport Franchises and I'm getting extremely nervous about the Raiders. I'm fully aware of the state of the franchise but after reading in the intro that the NFL constitutes 30 of the 50 teams that made the list I was supremely confident that the team with the ORIGINAL "Nation" would easily make the cut. No way could they possibly be one of the only two teams pathetic enough to be left out, right?

Now I'm well into the 40's and no Raiders. WTF??!? I've already seen teams like Tampa Bay, Carolina, Cincinnati, San Diego -- franchises that will never measure up to the Raiders' greatness -- and I'm seething. Then #49 - San Francisco... Giants.

Last chance, Raiders. I click.... and exhale. There they are. I knew this team would never let me down. As pitiful as it is to be ranked 50 of the top 50, I'm looking at it as at least they're among the 30 teams in the top 50 unlike the two remaining NFL teams.

So, now I ask what will it take for this franchise to turn that corner (other than the obvious - WINNING)? We know fan support isn't an issue. I see the stadium issue as priority #1a. According to Forbes the Raiders generate $50 million in stadium revenues - dead last in the league.

Here's the link for those interested.

For those who have better things to do, I'll just tell you; Oakland is worth $785 million.
