Default How much do you think Mike Brown is worth?

I know there is probably some link saying how much the man is worth, but it's the speculation that makes it fun.

Ok, so the Bengals are worth roughly $850,000,000.00. That's $850 million for the zero illiterate.

Do you think Mike Brown is worth over $1,000,000,000.00? That's $1 billion for the zero illiterate.

I think the Bengals are worth more than that without him.

I found an article that says he makes between $2-$2.5 million per year. I don't know what other (if any) business ventures he's a part of, but unless he's invested very very well over the years, it's probably unlikely that he's worth $1 billion.

However, William Shatner is worth over $1 billion. Crazy right?!?!

That might just be what he gets paid in salary for being the GM or in salary for whatever else he does for the team.

It's impossible that he'd only make 2.5 a year.

No, not crazy. The difference is that Shatner is well-liked and popular.

He's easily worth over a billion dollars if you count the worth of the team. Just between that and his personal property value he's over it. I've heard the team nets somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 mil in profit every year. If you consider that, and the fact that he's been taking in huge profits for years, what he inherited, investments, etc. I'd say he's worth close to 2 bil, maybe a little more.

Aint nothing "small market" about that.

I would say hes a billionaire... They dont call the old owner the Billionaire boy club for nothing.


that and he just dropped 200 mil to buy up the remaining steak in the bengals.

Once they finish buiding the practice facility that networth will go up with the bengals.

Anyways... we have the 25th most valuable franchise in the NFL..

with the 33rd best viewing market (around 900,000 viewers...) **Where a team like the jets has 7.5 million viewers... poor jets fans lol**

Shatner's money comes from Travelocity commercials. When he first signed on with them, he demanded that he be paid in stock. Of course, each share was worth very little back then, but he had a few million $$$ worth of it. Now, it's worth much much more, so now he's a magic billionaire!

Yeah, it's Priceline. Travelocity has that little gnome that needs to be smashed under a bulldozer then ground up and made into kitty liter along with that Flo chick from Progressive Insurance.

Ok, so the Bengals are worth roughly $850,000,000.00. That's $850 million for the zero illiterate.

Do you think Mike Brown is worth over $1,000,000,000.00? That's $1 billion for the zero illiterate.
According to a recent article he is indeed not a billionaire.

Com'on guys are you kidding me guys? Of course he is.

Being as frugal as he is and his age (compounding interest) plus the money he was born into - his investments alone (outside of the bengals) most likely send him over the top.

Enough to bring a super bowl win to Cincinnati, at least one would think.

Here you go....net worth of $905 million.

Cincinnati Bengals
Owner: Mike Brown (club president)
Age: 73
Bought team: Mike Brown's father, Paul, was one of the original owners of Bengals, who were founded in 1968. Mike Brown, who also had an ownership stake at the time of his father's death in 1991, became the club's primary decision maker after Paul Brown's passing.
Stadium: Paul Brown Stadium (completed in 2000)
TV market size: 924,000 viewers (ranked 33rd)
2010 Forbes value: $905M (ranked 25th)

Football has been the Brown family's business throughout Mike Brown's life. Few owners are more involved in the day-to-day football operations of their team than Brown, who has final say on the Bengals' personnel decisions. From a CBA perspective, Brown is perhaps best-known for being one of two owners (with Buffalo's Ralph Wilson the other) to vote against the 2006 CBA extension.
