Owners care more than players about preseason revenue
 
In theory, the players should have no leverage at this point in the practice. Each lost week of the preseason results in a shared forfeiture of roughly $200 million. Under the proposed labor deal, thatís roughly $96 million for the players, and roughly $104 million for the owners.
In practice, it doesnít matter because the owners care much more about the preseason revenue than the players do. For many players, their compensation for 2011 already is fixed; it doesnít matter if the pot that funds the salary cap adds another $96 million or $192 million or $288 million or $384 million. For the owners, $104 million in lost revenue per week roughly equates (setting aside for these purposes revenue disparities) to $3.25 million per team, per week. Which increases to $13 million per team if the full preseason is lost.
Whatís $13 million per team? For some, thatís most if not all of the profit margin for the entire year.
That said, the absence of preseason games would also result in reduced expenses for the owners. But with game checks not paid until the regular season, the expenses are a lot less during the preseason.
Then thereís the fact that, if a full preseason is played, some veterans (including possibly members of the Executive Committee and/or board of player representatives) could end up making zero percent of their 2011 salaries, if the full preseason gives a younger player enough time to persuade the coach that itís time to cut the veteran. So why not skip a couple of weeks of preseason revenue and increase dramatically the chances of getting 17 weeks of regular-season pay?

Re: Owners care more than players about preseason revenue
 
I've got a basic question here...lets say a player is getting 20 Million a year.
There are 20 games, 4 preseason and 16 regular season.
Would that player get 1M per game for all 20 games?....or does he get nothing for preseason games and 20M/16 for each regular season game?

I really am asking, do players get paid the same for preseason as they do for the regular season?

No players get their salary divided to game checks for the 17 NFL season weeks. Players get the same salary for the preseason games I don't know the exact amount but it's low that's why the owners have more pressure to get this deal done and not lose any preseason game because that's when they get their money and that's why they force u to pay regular season price for preseason games

If their salary is divided for season games....then zero is left.
How do they also get paid for preseason games?
I don't get it.

When you say that players get paid the same salary for preseason games...does that mean that all players get paid the same standard pay for each preseason game?

Re: Owners care more than players about preseason revenue
 
This thread has a misleading title and is not helpful.

A) Players do get per diem checks for preseason games
B) Under the new deal, players get paid a percentage of revenues. So it benefits the players if revenues are maximized, including in the preseason.

So it is pointless and meaningless to speculate that owners care "more" about preseason revenue. Both sides have a stake.

Why do we let D'Boyz still start threads here? Not really a fan of members who start various threads without participating in others. Locking this
