We have to starve the cash flow of the NFL. Boycott their sponsors. Don't attend their games or any events held at their stadiums. Don't buy any clothing items or anything else w/a team logo on it. Etc...

Rowdy Jr. (10 days ago)
Ikr that's weird. 😂 When I first heard that they are non-profit, I thought to myself ... "How the hell are they going to make money !?" Then, I realized they are publicly owned by the people.
Abner King (12 days ago)
They talk about ratings being down, if it wasnt for Football I'd get rid of DirecTv and never get cable or Satellite again. Matter of fact I might have them suspend my acct until September lol.
George Vreeland Hill (14 days ago)
The NFL makes money because the fans are stupid enough to pay the ticket prices. Stop paying, don't go to the games and the NFL is done.

Better than Communism. 👍 In Communism, you can't express your freedom nor your voice. That's why the USA is a great country. Same way with Canada. United Kingdom? Idk lol.

Coach Tomlin is the man and 1 of the best men around. The stuff he does to try and help children is what making it big is all about. To stop people like The Clinton’s and the Clinton foundation. I salute you Coach Mike Tomlin.

Now if Dallas could get back to winning super bowls they'd be set.

If the media said, "ratings are down a noticeable 2% from last year" it doesn't sound as good. But if the media said, "ratings are down a drastic 2% from last year" now that sounds better. So then the media says, "ratings are down a staggering 2% from last year" and dressed it up with some random facts with Ooo ahh numbers, and suddenly, they have a story. Even though the numbers are identical, when you hear key words like "staggering" "unheard of" or "hard blow" it makes you think it's a bigger deal than it actually is. Long story short, NFL isn't going anywhere, no matter how many domestic terrorists claim that their boycotting of not watching games, is gonna hurt the NFL.

no relegation, the worst team will always be in the top league, so sponsors can take more risks, more money and the league is locally focused

Subsidized by the Federal government.

Fascinating - yet you forgot the tax breaks that pro sports teams receive. Each team can depreciate their players in the same way that a corporation can depreciate company equipment. Like how a farmer can depreciate a tractor, or a construction company can depreciate bulldozers. Each NFL player's salary is depreciated over a 5 year period with the IRS - so at the end of 5 years - the NFL owner gets a 100% write-off on a player's salary if the player signs a 5 year contract.

With all the problems America has, people just care about being entertained, no matter how much they have to pay, no mention of the P.S.L. scam, and the suckers keep paying...…...

How is what President Trump said count as condemning the NFL? Honestly.. even you make football political
Akat (27 days ago)
Technically he made it political when he started going after football player's non-violent protests

Maybe we should own a percentage since WE PAY FOR THE STADIUM WITH OUR TAXES!!! At the very least receive PSL seats or free tickets. Just think of how many starving people the salaries would feed or how many homes for our homeless vets could be bought.
lolwutyoumad (18 days ago)
You are forgetting all the local businesses benefit from having a stadium and all the employees who have jobs because of it. Putting money down for a stadium is an investment into the city itself

The ratings or "most watched of the year" stat is super misleading. Live sports are the only thing that cable has left to entice subscribers. Anecdotally, when my wife and I ditched cable, we would still find ourselves missing live sports, everything else had been solved with Netflix and Hulu + torrents. Since the way they are measuring it ("Most Watched") is dependent on the overall number of viewers, I wouldnt be suprised if the overall number of viewers keeps going down, but their share of the pie continues to rise.

Just like MLB... Teach young minds a sport that most don't have an opportunity to play as an adult so they end up watching it on television. Pretty simple actually.

Exploit your players with non-guaranteed contracts and hold teams hostage to make taxpayers fund new stadiums. I mean, that's a start, right?

The biggest reason the NFL is so lucrative to the owners... Trump isn't involved! Remember the USFL??? The league that won a $1.00 lawsuit against the NFL spearheaded by Trump.

So GB is making a little over $3M a year profit? Purchasing a team is $2.2B? Doesn't seem very lucrative, or did i skip over something important

Want to hear my advice? In 8 years america, canada and mexico gonna host world cup, start make football club (soccer club) and compete on mls, you don't need to tear down those stadium, america already has the infrastucture, you just need to modified so the stadiums can fit fifa regulations for football games,

The Lions operating revenue is down because they made a 100M investment in stadium upgrades in 2016. The nfl has a loan program where you can borrow against your local revenue for stadium investments. So the Ford family is giving up concessions, concert money etc, in exchange. That contributed to the low operating revenue for 2017. Also, our team 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 🐻⬇️
