So most of the expenses are player salaries?? The NCAA is robbing people.

Easy, by over inflating ticket and food prices.

It's been proven through independent and peer reviewed research that NFL teams don't make money nor benefit the states/locales they are located in. They just cost money. GOOGLE PEOPLE!

Can’t talk football without your little political spin on it. That’s why your network sucks.

My bears are winning the superbowl this year. No one wants to see a sissy LA team win. No one wants to see a city like New Orleans win. Or a small town like New England win. NO. They want to see a beautiful MIDWEST team take it this year. Let's get it 🐻⬇️

Luis Antonio Perez (18 days ago)
If NFL teams paid 100% for their own stadiums they would leave the cities where they play and drop the city name. The Gary Bears, Arlington Cowboys, Glendale Rams, Mountain City 49ers, Decatur Falcons, etc. They use public money because the economy around major league teams is too big to let go, not to mention the effect of bring families and residents together around their emotional attachment with the teams. Allowing them to leave is political suicide.

*By appealing to lazy, Tribalistic Extroverts with a visceral physical contact sport divided by state.* There, saved you minutes and probably said what the video won't say.

They need to do what soccer teams do. The most annoying part of nfl games are the constant commercials. I hate it so much that I record most of my games just to skip the commercials.

Now I understand how a 6'5" 335 lbs man can get 12.5 million a year; when in the real world that man would probably be making 11 dollars an hour in Tennessee.
jord heinz (20 days ago)
Or an actor or actress making 20 million a movie, when in the real world they will be waiting tables for 7 bucks an hour plus tips.

71% of Americans blame the media for dividing America, & this snotty video starts off to do it. I assure you, if the NFL listened to the President, who is simply voicing the outrage we feel (keep politics out of sports), their ratings would be better. Use to be the most respected sport, but it’s no longer.

There is nothing like American Football in the sports world. It is action-packed, fun and just simply way bigger.

I don’t understand why MetLife is paying 19 mill a year just to have its name on the stadium . I can’t see them making up the 19 mill just from a name on a stadium

I wonder do they factor in licensing deals like video games and etc... also the fact the owners don’t have to spend all that money on those mega stadiums it’s their choice to do that ... and use all those commercials

RIZKI HERO PURNOMO (2 months ago)
I got confused. In NFL each team only play 17 games at regular season. And 8 or 9 play at home . So 8 or 9 play at away. How can each team got money only on 8/9 games at home???? Compare Premier League. Each team in one season play 38 games. And 19 play at home and 19 play at away.... So they play more than NFL.....
RIZKI HERO PURNOMO (1 month ago)
+Robert Baratheon But only 8 games at home. The ticket sales goes to home time right????

HOF_Coach Tim (2 months ago)
Due to globalist interference, politics by leftists, and shams like over regulating rules and the concussion push is destroying the game. Every business is a money making venture, but what happens when the NFL charities are no longer able to donate? Where is all that money going to come from for those organizations, to name just one challenge if it fails? Globalism & it's governing has no place in American business, whether big or small. Everytime they get involved, a business fails and millions of jobs are lost.

It's funny how people say they're not going to watch because of the protests (granted its a lot less public than last year) but the NFL is still growing. I personally don't have a problem with the protests because its not affecting the product of the game.
Tristan Möller (2 months ago)
It doesn’t make much sense to watch sports on replay or a day or a week later. Sports you watch live. That’s why TV ratings stay up high when many TV shows are struggling and they have to go on Netflix

Interesting, so that’s why nfl merchandising revenue is split between teams, because they have insane overhead and most teams don’t have the money to keep up
