As Forbes Magazine rolls out its latest list of the most valuable sports franchises, the Kansas City Chiefs are coming up in a great spot for the Hunt family at No. 28 overall. In the world of professional sports, that's a nice valuation for the Chiefs to pick up.

From the report, "The Chiefs posted a disappointing 7-9 record in 2011. The highlight of the year was a victory over the Green Bay Packers, who had won their first 13 games of the season. The win helped interim head coach Romeo Crennel secure the top spot on a permanent basis. The team wrapped up a $375 million renovation of their home, Arrowhead Stadium, in 2010."

The Chiefs were valued at $986 million overall and it's an impressive showing since the NFL is playing second fiddle to soccer on the global level. Manchester United ranks No. 1 overall with a price tag of over $2.3 billion and Real Madrid comes in second with $1.8 billion. All 32 NFL teams did make the rankings, so the Chiefs are somewhere in the midst of all of them.
