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

We the spectators need the NFL. Something to cheer for since our personal lives sucks. A mans game, call it an emotional constructive HIGH. The NFL only going to richer and better.
Gene Wilkerson (7 days ago)
I dont watch the NFL any more or wear their merchandice.
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.....

HOF_Coach Tim (9 days 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 (10 days 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

The Packers are not a "non-profit" team. They are publicly traded, which is why they have to disclose their finances.

Do you actually believe everything you see on the internet? Do you honestly think, those rich money hungry owners like losing any amount of money? Think about it kid.. Go watch the movie concussion, and see how crooked the NFL is. You'll wake up one day.

I'll give you a dollar for kapernick. Never mind he's trash. Lmao
imagede zach (11 days ago)
Way to go: you avoiding mentioning the detrimental effect that greedy owners constantly moving their teams is having on regional markets, not to mention the millions of dollars they get in public money for their stadiums. But as a reporter, I guess you have to strike a balance between relaying the truth and continued access eh?

As long as NFL lobbyists continue to bribe the MLS administration to keep the player cap for each team in the MLS, American Football wont incur any serious losses

Mal Mort (12 days ago)
It's funny this video characterized the NFL's ratings in a nose dive when they've been up this season and even last season the NFL was like 30 of 50 the top rated shows in TV, it's also laughable, considering there was an article that wrote about how CNBC's ratings were the lowest in 22 years. As for attendance, the numbers are actually on par with past seasons. If the anthem is the reason for lower ratings and lower attendance then explain why MLB ratings are lower and their attendance has been the lowest in a decade despite standing for the racist anthem.
Mal Mort (9 days ago)
@Jimmy Catalina 1.) The FULL anthem cheered the killing of Black Slaves who sided with the UK to fight for their freedom against the US/Colonies. 2.) The author of the anthem was racist . 3.) Even if you ignore the first two, the people who have an issue with Black Players not standing for the anthem are racist. So if racist worship this song, then it's a racist song.
Jimmy Catalina (10 days ago)
How can the national anthem possibly be racist? You must be joking.
