Interesting program about the Pats business model from Kraft on down.
Damn I fell asleep, and missed it...
It's suppose to be on again tonight at 9PM.
The thing that impressed me the most and I didn't know until I saw the program. Orthwien offerd Kraft $75 mil to let him out of his stadium contract so he could move the the team to St. Louis. That was $50 mil more than he paid for the stadium and land. Kraft turned him down. And, Kraft could have kept the stadium and land.
I know that some have issues with Kraft over tickets prices and parking. But without Kraft -no New England Patriots.
For those who complain about ticket prices.....shut up....it could be much much worse....Take a look at what is going on in dallas.
If you are complaining that a $100 ticket is too expensive than you probably shouldn't be spending $50 dollars on a ticket if they were cheaper. if that 50 makes that much of a difference than probelms are not with Kraft they are with your employer or what ever other situation your in.
I knew that Kraft made it impossible for Orthwien to move the team because of the stadium lease. But, how many people would have turned down $75 mil to just give him a realease?
I have issues with anyone who has issues with Kraft. It is not easy being the guy at the top. Invariably you upset some people. He has gone above and beyond to do the best he can for the NE fans. Like someone said he is the only reason the Pats are still here. And oh by the way no PSLs @ Gillette!
Very good show. Aside the show allowing Peter King to make a complete ass of himself.
Bump to remind those who want to see this, it's suppose to be on tonight at 9PM, CNBC.
Correction: It is shown on their schedule to be on this Friday 2/1 at 9PM
Thanks for the bump! Just set the TiVo!
