I'm not going to debate brand strength between the Cowboys and Rangers because there is no question which is stronger. However, in pure media market terms they both reside in the same market, which according to an article I read online today is 7th in the country. How is it that one team (Cowboys) is considered a big market team while the other (Rangers) is a mid-market team. That makes little sense to me, considering that the Rangers are the one with the regional TV deal while the Cowboys are part of the NFL's TV deal with Fox and CBS. Could it be that Jerry Jones actually knows how to run a team's finances while Tom Hicks does not? The Cowboys have 8 home games a year, the Rangers have 81 yet the Cowboys make much more money on a yearly basis than the Rangers. Part of it has to be the salary cap, another being the star power of the Cowboys, but it seems to me that if someone had any clue on how to run a team in the Rangers front office then the Rangers could have a payroll near $100 mil and still be profitable. Tom Hicks clearly isn't the savy businessman he would have us believe.
