How Bout Them Cowboys?

Can America’s team really be worth 3.4 Billion dollars? According to a recent Forbes article they can.

I can hear owner Jerry Jones now, “How bout them Cowboys?”

Somehow the team from big D has smoke-and-mirrored its way to being the nation’s most valuable sports franchise. The second most valuable N.F.L. team would be the New England Patriots, coming in at a distant 2.6 billion in net worth. Not too shabby, but not close to Jerry’s world.

I can understand the Patriots being near the top. After all, they have played in 6 Super Bowls since 1996. The Cowboys on the other hand, have played in exactly … ZERO! They have been a case study in mediocrity.

So what’s the deal? How can a mediocre team be so highly valued and referred to as America’s Team? Can you say branding?

Love them or hate them, I am guessing you have an opinion on the Cowboys. Why is that? Again, branding.

When it comes to your organization, how is your brand these days? Do outsiders have an opinion of you and your team? Do you have a following? Are there lovers and haters? I hope so. If no one has an opinion, you are officially, irrelevant.

[Tweet “Today might be a good time to evaluate your brand. Your brand is your reputation. Literally, your influence.”]

For today’s comments, take a moment and share your opinion on what makes a great brand?

I look forward to learning from your insights. Tomorrow I will share with you a reason the Cowboys might possibly be headed back in the right direction on the field.

Leadership Begins at Home,

Branding works best upon an established legacy of success that stokes the memories of your customer base. They will tolerate mediocrity as long as there is hope of a return to the level of success the heritage was built upon. It is a franchise (team) not product or personnel based hype!
Kind of like the Church, we have been reminded of our heritage and the promises of success so we can tolerate the current mediocrity and disappointments of the church. We dare not give up on the heritage of Christ’s promises that he will return triumphant again. That’s eternal branding…
