Higher teams in money in the world !!??



If you mean highest Net Value inclusive of stadiums, dedicated broadcast networks, sponsorships, merchandizing, and with European soccer the value of potential trades, I still think that might be Manchester United. Which, at least until its current malaise, had a nominal fan base of 650 million world wide. I think the highest valued American franchise might be the NY Yankees rather than the Dallas Cowboys. The Yankees have a huge fan base in Latin America.

Super Bowl secondary market tickets on pace to set a record.

Currently averaging $7,939 USD with a cheap seat as low as $2,862.

Prices are expected to soften prior to game time due to LA lacking a solid fan base in LA.

At a cost of at least $5 million for every 30 seconds of commercials with a total of 51 minutes & 30 seconds in tv commercial time, the league will make much $$$ for the Super Bowl. This doesn't even include radio commercial time.

And all because Trump told the assholes that kneeling made them look like assholes. MNFLGA

Like kneeling and drugs and wife beating society continues to baffle the NFL as they reject Superbowl ad for medical weed.

For franchise owners its always 1962

NFL is doing so well financially that they have the luxury of rejecting multi million dollar ads like that.

I am not entirely sure those numbers are 100% accurate. While tv viewership may be down, the fact is that taverns and eating establishments have TVs which show these games as well. For example, I watch youth hockey in West St Paul where the arena now has a large TV. Same as when I attend games in South St Paul. Dozens of people watch at the same time but none are counted among the totals your link reported. The large building I live in has a spacious community room with a 60 inch TV. No telling how many people watched the game there as I was comfortable in my own apartment and ate a dinner that couldn't be beat.
By the way, consider this:
World Series ratings sharply down from last year
https://www.apnews.com/754cd23aba144d998dd76b4e217d62ba
It was a great World Series for Boston, but not necessarily for Fox.
The Red Sox’ five-game victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers averaged 14.1 million viewers, the Nielsen company said. That’s sharply down from the 2017 Fall Classic, which averaged 18.9 million viewers for the Houston Astros’ seven-game triumph over the Dodgers.

But this is likely true of all sports. Still the revenues continue to go upward so none of us need to shed a time for major league sports.

The problem with selling this Super Bowl is that the Rams have no home crowd. Because they have no home. When you move your franchise around like a chess piece you lose your home town base.

There was no way this was ever going to be a big Superbowl.

Veteran tv host Bob Costas confirms he was removed from his 9th Superbowl hosting gig due to comments he made about concussions.

When he truthfully said that he wouldn't let his kids play the game - just like Brett Farve said - he was dispatched in favor of a less "controversial host.

NFL settles collusion lawsuit with Kapernick and Reid.

All sides sign non disclosure agreements so nobody can be sure what happened but its odds on that the NFL coughed up $50 million or so.

MURDER-SUICIDE HORROR: Former Vikings part-owner, wife found dead in mansion

A prominent business owner and the former part-owner of the Minnesota Vikings was found dead next to his wife this week in what police believe to be a murder-suicide.
RadarOnline.com has learned Irwin Jacobs and wife Alexandra were unconscious in their bed with a handgun by their side when a routine visitor walked into their multimillion-dollar mansion and saw them.

“Officers with the Orono Police Department made entry into the home. Upon entering, we found two individuals deceased — one adult male, one adult female — they were both inside the house and a gun was recovered,” Orono Police Chief Correy Farniok said at a press conference. He added that the medical examiner has yet to officially release their identities.
Irwin’s company, Jacobs Management Corp. released their own statement, on behalf of the couple’s five children, confirming the tragedy.
“Our family is shocked and devastated by the death of our parents, Irwin and Alexandra Jacobs,” read the statement issued Wednesday. “We are heartbroken by this loss, and we ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very difficult time.”

Farniok said police believe the alleged murder-suicide is a “contained situation” which poses “no immediate threat to the community.”
“We don’t see this very often — in any of our communities, this doesn’t happen,” he told reporters Wednesday. “We are taking this seriously. We’re looking at it from every aspect.”
Police did not confirm the people’s identities, but Dennis Mathisen, one of Irwin’s longtime business partners, told The Star Tribune that the renowned businessman, likely killed his wife before turning the gun on himself. Both were 77 and had been married for 57 years. According to Mathisen, Alexandra developed signs of dementia and was confined to a wheelchair about one ago. Her condition had Irwin “distraught.”
