    As of last summer according to Forbes:

    http://www.forbes.com/2010/07/20/mos...fty-fifty.html

    The list is:

    1) Manchester United
    2) Dallas Cowboys
    3) Yankees
    4) Redskins
    5) Patriots
    6) Real Madrid
    7) Giants
    8) Arsenal
    9) Jets
    10) Texans
    11) Eagles
    12) Bucs
    13) Bears
    ...
    NFL teams with some big name soccer clubs
    ...
    49) Lakers
    50) Knicks

    The SportsMoney 50-50 includes teams from five sports: baseball (with 5 teams rich enough to make the cut), basketball (2 teams), football (all 32 NFL teams--credit national TV deals worth $4 billion annually), motorsports (2 teams) and soccer (9 teams). For the athletes we factored in salaries, bonuses, prize money, endorsements, appearance fees and licensing income earned over the past 12 months. Athletes from nine sports made the cut, with NBA players making up 30% of the list. Americans dominate, but there are 16 different nationalities represented.
    Keep in mind this is from last summer and the author used endorsement deals as a prime indicator of rank as well as public figures like operating income. I think the valuation method is rather arbitrary and inaccurate, but there is some value there somewhere.
