I think the NFL has pretty much hit it's ceiling for revenue or damn near close. You need only look at the economy to understand this. Wages aren't getting any higher but inflation is/has rising steadily. It comes down to a max you'll be able to squeeze out of companies for advertising.

Adding more primetime games is a big untapped revenue pool.

In 10 years there will be massive internet rights, too, to go along with ginormous tv rights.

Secondly, the owners are not allowed to use replacement players because, again, THEY initiated this work stoppage.

Finally, of all of the major (and minor) sports, football players are the most educated with all of them attending at least 3 years of post high school education. No other sport comes close to that. Most players turn into viable and productive members of society after their playing days are done.

I'm so glad football will be back next week so we can be rid of these inane conversations.
The perception might be due to a large contingent of football players being in a financial mess soon after retirement. That said, lack of money skills does not necessarily mean lack of other skills that can land them jobs better than the burger joint. They certainly have the capital to pursue various business ventures. The matter is where to pursue the venture, and that is where pro football players trip due to folks who want to nab their money.

I disagree. Adding more primetime games will dilute their product. It used to be that Monday Night Football was the big game to watch (now it's moved to Sunday night), and Sunday night was the meh...it's on so I'll watch it kinda game. You start adding in more primetime guys and you'll saturate your market and not in a good way.

NFLís New $4 Billion DirecTV Deal Includes Streaming Rights | paidContent


The revenues for the NFL have skyrocketed the past 5-10 years. There is no way it can continue that type of revenue. Much like the housing market and anything else, there comes a time and point where you can't get anymore. Sure they'll get increase in revenue, but at some point, it isn't going to be feasible for TV stations to get the rights to broadcast. When you see NFL broadcasting rights expense start outweighing the advertising revenue, then you'll see TV stations backing down on even bidding.

Tapping the internet market has only just begun. As we move towards internet provision of all of our entertainment (which is the current trend), the internet pie will produce pieces which are not on the table today and the pie will grow.

Re: Twitter burns as Owners ratify

You guys are speaking right in my wheelhouse, these are exactly the things I work on. But, I can't and don't discuss specifics here. So I'll just say...can't wait for some NFL moves finally next week

You are assuming the current technology stays constant and that new branches of communication don't open up. Even with todays tech, has anyone thought about revenue generated by streaming games?

10 years ago, there wasn't an NFL Network adverting games. I am sure in 10 years we will be paying for new and different ways to view the game.

Just saying, the world is not a static place. The economy will again bounce back and revenues will rise - inflation will cause wages to rise, etc. etc. I would not be surprised if (after adjusing for inflation) NFL real revenues increase by 50% or more in the 10 years.

Re: Twitter burns as Owners ratify

you all are missing the point, internet will provide equal access to all, thus allowing workers around the world to unite, and finally throw off the bounds of the evil owners. The players just didn't wait for the right moment to unite.
[/sarcasm]

sure hope we are too busy talking about specific Redskins moves by Tues/Wed to care about NFL revenue streams for the next 10 years.

I think you are showing that economics is maybe not your strong suit. The NFL basically maintained or grew their revenues (depending on how you look at it) during the worst economic time period in decades. Their ceiling for revenue is high...very high. And that is the main driving force behind this entire situation.
