    The Browns are an extremely loyal fan base. Even with losing basically every season they still pack the place. That alone makes it a valuable franchise

    This.  The Browns have made the playoffs just once since the franchise was recreated in '99(?), yet sell out every home game.  With decent ownership, they can be one of the flagship franchises of the NFL again.

    This: NFL teams get about $150 million from television contracts, before they sell one ticket, jersey, beer or parking space or naming rights or local radio rights or anything else.  And that number is likely to increase when the contracts renew in the next couple of years. They also share in various revenues generated by other teams.  So even if a team isn't that great, it's still a license to print money, especially if the stadium deal is favorable.

    One of the biggest problems the NFL has these days is that too many people in a growing number of cities would prefer to stay home and watch all the games on their big screen TVs than to schlep to the stadium and put up with traffic and the elements and the expense.  I suspect pay-per-view is coming in some form.
