    Read this on ESPN website. Nice explanation of Owner problems and differences. Doesn't offer anything as a way out but nice background info.
    Quite interesting. Apologies if someone has already posted it.

    That is a pretty good piece..doesn't say much about what the small revenue teams wish to keep hidden...expenses and costs..and PROFIT!! But that will come out in time..

    It should be mandatory they all take a "maximizing your revenue instead of sitting on your fat ass receiving welfare from other teams" class.

    Yeah, whatever happened to free enterprise and survival of the fittest.

    * Each team got 85 million from shared, money for nothing, revenue from TV. That's hardly free enterprise. Each team has it's own market. Well except in New York but there's enough people there for both teams. There's other things that make the NFL more socialist than capitalist. Comparing an NFL team to Macy's department store doesn't work.
