5 Super Bowls Posted March 2, 2006 Share Posted March 2, 2006 The entire problem as I see it is actually greed. The NFL owners have transferred a lot of the revenue from tickets and the like to parking, suites, stadium license fees and other related stadium revenue. The reason a blue parking pass is $50 and the most expensive ticket is $93 dollars is because Jerry has redistributed the revenue from ticket sales where he get 30%+ percentage of to parking and licensing fees where he gets to keep 100% of the revenue. The players realize this and are asking for those revenues to be included. The net effect is in the range of $10+/- million per team. That is around $100 million in actual value to the franchise. So the players are asking these crafty businessmen to give up $10 million a year in revenue and around $100 million in equity in the franchise. Not that difficult to understand from a commercial real estate perspective. The cost for season tickets for a $93 ticket is actually $2,730 per year. The players are only sharing $930 dollars per ticket per year. I understand why the teams don't want to share the other $1800. Some of these teams actually need to have the extra revenue to pay the debt on the new stadiums and debt to purchase the franchise. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
