KJJ your wrong on all this.
1. you obviously dont know all 8 teams play at that same stadium which is in Birmingham alabama which is a small city compared to say dallas.
As of 2020, Birmingham had a population of 200,733 , if jerrys stadium were there, half the people would have to come to the game to fill it up.
If cowboys played there , there would still probably be empty seats even in that small stadium.
why they chose this city is a mystery, guess it was super cheap, and they dont care about people in stands.'
only the Birmingham team is going to draw a crowd.
2.The NFL owners lost a lot of money when no one could come to the games in 2020......no they didnt lose any money, they took
money from the tv contracts that was to go to the salary cap to make up for the lost home game revenue.
thats why many games had no one in attendance, as it was cheaper to just go with empty stadium, no employees less water and electricity used etc.
3.If they’re not showing up at the gate they’re not watching it on TV they fold.........1st they obviously didnt care about ticket sales to games, or they
would have had each team play in their own city. Fox and Nbc have invested in this, and were not expecting huge ratings,at first.
They wanted 1 mil per game, but as long as they do as good as other sports shows they air, they are ok with the ratings.
The networks get these games cheap, so they can make money off them, unlike nfl games which are the polar opposite. They have to pay big money
to get nfl games, but also charge big for ads. But they can still make money off these usfl games as they get them so cheap compared to other sports they air.'
And if the usfl gains more viewers in future years, both networks win as they still get them at good price and are invested in the league, so make money there too.
Your post is too long and I have no interest in arguing about the USFL. It will eventually fold again. This addresses my comments on the NFL. One link is banned from being posted here it claims the NFL lost over 2 billion playing in empty stadiums.
