Went to buy my first NFL jersey today (#37) and the price started me thinking about two things: How much profit are the NFL and its owners making, and how much would it hurt the Krafts' bottom line if Gillette were modified to make it more of a "homefield advantage" stadium? Am I the only one who thinks the NFL has become too greedy (some would say "successful")? Between TV/Cable revenue, product licensing, season ticket/luxury suite revenue, corporate sponsorships, concessions, land deals/leases, and now the NFL network, does anyone know how much these guys are actually raking in now? [Disclaimer: I can't express how much the Krafts should be thanked for everything they have done for this franchise.] But after reading some of the comments here about the lack of crowd noise/enthusiasm at Gillette, I wonder if they should consider enclosing the stadium, or getting rid of at least some of the luxury/box seating to allow more "true" fans closer to the field. We have one of the most rabid, passionate fanbases in the country and I think the fans and the team deserve better than a wine and cheese experience at the stadium. Sellouts are one thing, but actual crowd noise and enthusiasm are another. I say this after seeing games in Seattle and Denver, and seeing how at times Patriots games seem more like a Wimbleton match than a pro football game.
