    This is one of the reasons the Cowboys are routinely ranked as the world’s most valuable franchise. They crush every other team in average home attendance. In 2019 they averaged almost 91,000 fans per game. The second best team, the Jets, averaged 78,500.


    The Cowboys are also a powerhouse when it comes to merchandise sales since they are by far the most visible team in the league, and the marquee franchise.

    Yeah, if they actually cut the cap to 130 million. I don't know why 120 million is thrown around.

    You seem to have left out the $5 billion+ per year (divided between owners and players, under the current CBA) that the NFL receives for the combined broadcast rights to their games.

    According to what I read, as far back as 2015, 50% of the revenue is actually from TV ad revenue. This is actually shared revenue, so even if one is mediocre, one still gets a portion of the pie. There is really no incentive for bad teams to get good. This structure is the same as the NBA.

    But I also read it costs about 1 billion per year to run a team.

    The Cowboys are the cream of the crop and don’t represent the rest of the NFL. Jerry actually worked a deal where Dallas takes the merchandising sales and whoever they license with the stadium, they keep the profits. The rest of the teams work on the shared revenue basis. And Dallas is always has two players in top five of jersey sales. Jerry is by far ahead of the game as far as owners are concerned, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there is sole resentment from other owners.

    That’s why TAX PAYER money is so essential to stadiums. No owner can put up the cash necessary and the populaces at large are bring taken for a ride when none of the revenue is shared with the local cities. The idea stadiums create economic surplus has been proven false by many studies.

    The NFL also doesn’t allow access to its books and this is one of the issues with the CP lawsuit for the flag and why it was supposedly settled if I recall correctly. The NFL didn’t want to open up its books.

    A lot of the owners are probably highly leveraged. If the majority of the companies in the US, before this massive government intervention, were leveraged at a 47% ratio, the highest by far of anytime in history, higher than the Great Depression, what do you think about the owners?

    Even the Kraft Group was losing money the last four years.

    Jerry Jones paid $140 million for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are now worth $5 billion.

    The owners can take a small lose for a year or two compared to the monumental wealth they gain by being allowed to own an NFL team.

    more televised games and improvised streaming showing games with even more ads etc et..they will find way to make up for a short term shortfall as many do with stocks etc.. the NFL knows how to make money..

    NFL Network for one need to lower their demands for using their app on streaming services because its almost been dropped by every major TV and streaming provider..they want more money and keep fans attention, compromise on price..

    This is ridiculous because costs are already controlled by having a salary cap. Team executives should be expected to manage the breakdown. The salary cap exists less because of player greed but more because the owners don't trust each other to spend responsibly.

    Once again, the owners already control this.. they have each other to blame. Its entirely in their control how much money players are paid in relation to the cap, not the players "hording" money. Players negotiate for more money because there is typically another owner willing to pay it.

    I wouldn't mind "stacking" some money, but unfortunately I've never had that opportunity.

    Right or wrong on a given issue doesn't depend on your bank acct.

    the NFL DIES A FULL DEATH IF WE HAVE NO FANS THIS YEAR AT GAMES. Trust me, THEY know it and are panicked. Its the tail that wags the dog these days in the NFL...EXCEPT THEY,THE PLAYERS forgot about what drives the salaries, THE FANS! No fans means a salary cap reset and reduction. It means massive pay cuts in 2021. THE FANS MATTER. We are the life blood of the league. NO FANS MEANS, NO TICKET SALES, NO MERCH SALES, NO CONCESSIONS. NO PARKING LOTS GETTING FILLED. I could keep going..but you get the idea. I didnt even touch on ramifications of Fantasy football...The losses will be massive.
