    True. And I love it. It means we have the cash on hand to pay out large signing bonuses. That kind of flexibility helps with cap management.

    As the article says, the TV and jersey sales revenue is shared so the Pats don't get extra cash that the other teams don't get. Kraft's extra cash comes from $125 seats, $40 parking fees and concessions selling $10 beers and especially from our infamous Red Seat friends who shell out the big bucks. The hated (by me) Patriots Place stores, hotels, bars and restaurants will further increase his cash flow. That cash = up front signing bonus money that other teams have trouble matching, e.g. Buffalo.

    PFT is talking about this, too, noting:

    To paraphrase someone else, "There's still room to jump on the Dark Side bandwagon. Don't forget: we have supermodels." :)

    Its true that the Pats don't earn extra money directly, but the increased sale and increased viewership raise the CAP figures either now or in the future.:eek:

    The ratings, if they continue make the TV folks BIG bucks but in the future as you say this could translate into an even more lucrative multi-billion dollar TV contract for the NFL next time. Kraft happens to be the league's TV contract guy.

    I wasn't really refering to cash for the Pats organization per se. What I was saying was that the Pats are big money for television and the league in general. These games are hot commodities in terms of advertising. Auggie Bush, Pete Coors, Bill Ford jr, Steve Jobs etc etc .. you want to advertise your products to some of the largest audiences on television in the sweet spot demographic? Submit to the Patriot Regime and PAY UP SUCKAS!!!!
