Update: Glazers Richer than Rich

When the newest Forbes 400 list came out this past week, it was no surprise Bucs' and Manchester United owner Malcom Glazer (& family) ranked No. 108 on the list. What was a bit of a surprise (a pleasant surprise if your last name is Glazer too) was the family's estimated worth: $3.61 billion.

Last year, Forbes estimated the Glazers' worth at $2.7 billion. Then in April, it figured the family topped the $3 billion mark when the value of ManU climbed by $420 million. Then, the world's most valuable franchise went public, netting the Glazers another $110 million from the IPO.

Clearly, estimating wealth is an imperfect science since the math doesn't all add up, but still, with a $900 million jump in value, it's been a very good year to be a member of the Glazer family.
