If I were to ask you which US pro sports team is the most profitable, you'd probably say the Yankees. That's wrong. Then you'd probably say the Cowboys. That's wrong too.

It'd probably take you a while to get to it, but the Washington Redskins are the most profitable US pro sports team.

How is this possible? Well, Dan Snyder has turned the team into a corporation, which produces huge bucks, even while the team sucks.

"Snyder took a very under-marketed asset and squeezed every last cent out of it," says Dan Kaplan, finance editor at The Sports Business Journal. "He's turned the Redskins into a cash machine. And the result is a completely soulless, corporate product."

Sweet. So while Redskins fans hate Snyder, he's done a hell of a job creating a cash machine. Although, no one really benefits from that except Snyder, and possibly Albert Haynesworth.
