Imagine how much more they could have gotten if it was run without all the BS. 15 million per year more isnt jack to the overall numbers of the NFL. And Im still not watching and now Im thinking about cancelling my Amazon Prime account with another price increase coming. I dont utilize much of the offerings and dont need much of anything I order from them in 2 days.

Total value of NFL franchises is 62.9 billion USD. So in terms of growth as a percentage that is 2/10ths of a percent. .002066773 I would bring up EBIT but they are a tax exempt operation (because that makes sense). I am not sure what other factors are necessary to consider but just at this most CEO's would be stepping down minus some commodity market industry specific crash. (eg. oil crashes so does oil company)

Love it or hate it the NFL isnít going anywhere. Itíll still be here a 100 years from now, paying people a lot of money to play the game. The Cowboys ruined the NFL for me long before any Anthem protests. Iíve got better things to do.

I WAS a member, and unfortunately my 5 year membership hasn't run its course, and will never be renewed again.

I pride myself on not being a hypocrite, and do my best to stay true to what I believe. I'm sure my few hundred bucks over the last 8 years is nothing, but I feel good about it.

The nfl has gone to pot. Where are the role models for our kids to look up to. Greatly overpaid and acting like street gangsters on the field. Overpaid and giving about 50 percent. Don't wAtch them anymore.

Gone to pot? You wanted your kids to look up to pro football players? I'm thinking we should start questioning the parents of kids that wanted their kids to look for pro athletes to be their role models. My role model was my father. Football was our entertainment.

And they are paid what the market dictates. Your post reads like a poorly thought-out tweet.

No law enforcement can carry either - they provide their own security and donít want interference from other officers and agents.

So feel safe and donít worry that 80k full stadium is fully protected by the NFL.

Depends on his age. At one point most athletes, movie stars and all sorts of popular entertainers were good role models for kids. I think probably through the early 80s. Im not saying there weren't outliners but probably back in the 60s and 70s JJ Watt was the norm. Since the 90s....... JJ is the outliner.

J, I don't think I'll agree with you there. People have been people (sinners) since the beginning of time. I think it just gets reported more now with all of our different media sources. Two of the best baseball players of all time - Mantle and The Babe. Great, great, great, athletes and entertainers. But not someone you would want your kid to imitate (outside of baseball). We could go back and forth on who is a good guy and who is bad. Back in the day most reporters would not report scandalous stories about people's heroes. Oh how times have changed

That has more to do with Amazon taking over the world than it does about football. One day you will be watching the Amazon Cowboys playing the Amazon Eagles on your Amazon phone/tv thru your Amazon Prime account, while Alexis is calling for an Amazon drone pizza delivery.

Lightbulb NFL is Falling Apart!

I changed my stance. Just looked at another story on CTE (brain damage from concussions) on HBO REAL SPORTS.
YEP, the league will fall apart waaaaay faster from this medical issue than from lack of rabid fans!!!!

Shame being that the players will sue the NFL into oblivion over TBI making their millions even greater meanwhile our troops are still gonna get the same but for peanuts. Theyll tell the troops they knew what they signed up for.
