Forbes ranks Redskins 5th most valuable

Despite some hard times on the field in recent years, the Washington Redskins remain one of the most valuable franchises in sports.According to the latest Forbes Magazines rankings the Redskins are the 5th most valuable sports franchise in the world with an estimated value of 1.56 billion.They are just behind the Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankees, who are tied as the most valuable U. S. based team at 1.85 billion. Soccer teams Manchester United (2.23 billion) and Real Madrid (1.88 billion) are the two most valuable sports franchises in the world.The Redskins are high in the ranking in part because they have one of the largest stadiums in the league (even after replacing thousands of upper deck seats with standing areas), a number of lucrative sponsorship deals and a large and loyal fan base.The Redskins get another boost merely by being a member of the National Football League. The NFL dominates the Forbes rankings, holding 32 of the 50 spots. That means, of course, that every team in the league, even smaller-market teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills, is among the most valuable sports properties in the world. The new labor contract that ensures stable labor costs for the next nine years and the 5 billion per year TV contract that starts in 2014 are among the factors that make NFL franchises the most valuable in sports.

Su'a Cravens and Will Compton ate dinner together, but only one got attention from fans

Back in February, fans named the Redskins the third-most attractive team in the NFL. On top of that, Will Compton was tabbed the league's fifth-best looking player overall (in fact, he beat out Tom Brady, and everyone knows beating out Tom Brady in anything is always notable). 

A side effect of being revered for your good looks, though, is that other people will sometimes get jealous of them. Take Compton's teammate, Su'a Cravens, for example.

According to some tweets from Cravens, the two Washington defenders were casually eating dinner on Wednesday night, but kept getting interrupted. The reason for the interruptions?

Apparently, they were happening because Compton is just really, really, really, ridiculously good looking

Sean McVay is now the proud owner of a multimillion-dollar California home

When most 30-year-olds earn a promotion, they'll receive a decent bump in compensation. Then, they'll use some of that bonus on that new set of golf clubs they've been eyeing, or perhaps on a fresh couch for the living room.

Sean McVay isn't one of those 30-year-olds.

The Rams head coach and former Redskins offensive coordinator bypassed those smaller purchases and has instead opted to recently buy a giant house in California. How much did McVay drop on the property? Oh, just $2.71 million. That's all.

The home, located in Encino, has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and checks in at more than 4,600 square feet. And yes, of course, it has a pool.

The Internet these days is full of hot takes. Here's a cooler, more reasonable one: McVay's house is pretty nice.
