As great as it was to see the NFL season kick-off this weekend—with a Monday Night doubleheader still to be played tonight—another dope thing was seeing Forbes’ team evaluations for the upcoming season.

Honestly, all these really prove is that you, me and anyone we know will never be able to afford what it takes to own an NFL franchise because, holy shit, they’re expensive as all hell.

The most valuable franchise might not be too surprising—with the Dallas Cowboys sitting No. 1 with a $4 billion value—but the rest of the top-10 actually includes a few teams that haven’t had great success recently.

Rounding out the rankings are the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills, who haven’t made the postseason since 2002 and 1999, respectively—so they’re sort of accustomed to being in last-place during football season.

31. Oakland Raiders – $1.43 billion

32. Buffalo Bills – $1.4 billion

No matter how you shake it, it really sucks being a Raiders and Bills fan.
