Super Bowl Players get royally ripped off

You might think the players in the NFL get overpaid. But look who makes the money.

The average price of a ticket for the Superbowl was close to $3,500. Tonight's game had an attendance of 80,000. Let's say 5,000 were free tickets to be overly generous.

The average price of a ticket to the game was approximately $3,500 x 75,000 paid ticket holders = $260,000,000 approximately. In addition there are TV revenues from Fox, probably tens of millions more.

Then there are program, shirts, hats, banners, beer and hotdog sales. A beer cost $12. So figure attendees easily spent $50 x 80,000 or $4 million. This doesn't include the many activities in the days leading up to the game where the NFL rakes in tons of money.

So here are the payouts for the players.
Winning team members: $92,000 x 60 = $5.5 million
Losing team members: $46,000 x 60 = $2.75 million

IOW, TV revenues, food and mementos more than cover the amount paid to the players.

Thus the NFL gets $260 million to pay for the stadium rental and other costs. How much could that be?

The NFL and the team owners probably pocket $250 million dollars.

The cost of the players - who are THE reason people watch the game - is a paltry 2 to 3% of Super Bowl revenues.

Shouldn't they be getting close to half? Shouldn't the players be collectively splitting $125 million instead of $8 million? They are the reason that people watch.

Not to mention that the players have to pay state taxes while they're in NJ based on their yearly salary and their super bowl winnings. It was estimated that Peyton Manning would have to pay $46,000 dollars in taxes for his stay there. That's what he received for losing...so he basically made nothin as far as his normal pay goes. I imagine he was punished even further with that looooong plane ride home too.

Just thought I'd throw this in too. It may have been known by some already...but there was a scathing report about the NFL not payin taxes because they consider themselves a NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION. That's really just turdly on the smelliest of stink levels.

Actually, the team salary caps are determined by the total income of the entire NFL for the entire season divided equally among all teams.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

The players are getting royally screwed.

Those stadiums fill up each week. According to Forbes, the average player gets $1.9 million a year. It's skewed because a few players such as QB's get the lion's share.

32 teams x 53 players x $1.9 million = $3.222 billion.

Total attendance 17,300,000 x $200 a ticket = $3.460 billion

Add in the preseason and the post season billions more can be added, not including huge charges for parking, mementos, food and drink.

TV and radio deals provide more billions. $3 billion from the ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS and another $1.9 billion from ESPN. IOW $5 billion a year from TV alone.

Then there are the royalties for all the clothes and video games sold in stores with the player's numbers or names on them!

Keep in mind that not one ticket gets sold without the players.

Broncos embattled Canadian offensive lineman Orlando Franklin, had a tough evening against the Seahawks on Sunday

Patrick Dennis "Pat" Bowlen (born February 18, 1944) is the majority owner and Chief Executive Officer of the Denver Broncos.

Bowlen was born in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, the son of Arvella (née Woods) and Paul Dennis Bowlen, who became a millionaire in the Canadian oil business, founding Regent Drilling as a wildcatter. The oil company is now owned by Pat's brother John.

He is a member of the bar association and law society of Alberta, Canada.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Bowlen

Paul Bowlen was engaged in speculative mining and oil drilling in Alberta, Canada, when his wife became pregnant in 1943.

"She wasn't about to have her first baby in some godforsaken place called Vermilion (Alberta)," said Bowlen. "They hardly had a hospital. So she went back to Prairie du Chien."

In 1983, the American-born, Canadian tycoon decided he had enough money. After examining ownership opportunities in the NHL and Canadian Football League, Bowlen bought the Broncos from Edgar Kaiser for about $70 million.

http://www.jsonline.com/sports/denver-br...56611.html

Edgar Fosburgh Kaiser, Jr (July 5, 1942 – January 11, 2012) was an American-Canadian financier and a former owner of the Denver Broncos American football team.

Kaiser held several corporate positions during his life, including chief executive officer of Vancouver-based Kaiser Resources Ltd, the family holding company. Kaiser Resources' coal assets were sold to British Columbia Resources Investment Corporation and Ashland Oil Canada to Dome Petroleum.[2][8]

Kaiser served as Chairman and CEO of the Bank of British Columbia [9] He also served on the board of directors of several large Canadian companies.

Even more outrageous is that they give only a tiny amount of their money for charitable causes. Goodell, the commissioner, was paid $29.5 million last year - more than the NFL gave for charitable causes.

I hear that, I'm glad I wasn't in any office football pool this year. My normally decent picking skills were out the window most of the season.
If not for Indy, I'd have no bragging rights at all, as Tampa and Miami had awkwardly disappointing seasons.

I too had myself convinced that I wanted to see a close game. It really was because I knew there was a very distinct possibility that the Seahawks could lose and I wanted at the very least that they make a good showing. I found that Bronco fans were rubbin it in well before the game about how much more powerful their team was and that SF would have been a better opponent. As the game went on and the drubbing continued into the second half with that giant coffin nail of a run back by Harvin...I found that I really liked the lopsided victory as long it was a Hawks lopsided victory. Don't let to many Hawk fans fool you by sayin they hoped it would've been a close game. Non Hawk fans had been talkin sh!t for 2 weeks and most all Hawk fans including myself loved seein em get a good nose rubbing into their own Bronco poo pile. Oh man...was it ever a pile to squish into too.
You should be glad you really didn't have money to bet as with 2.5 - 3 point odds would make you very little for the risk AND those odds are really a pic em bet which means even the odds makers new it could easily go either way. Putting a $100 on a safety bein the first score was 40 to 1...earning a cool $4,000. Anyway...I'm glad the Hawks won and when you get a chance...look at some of the hits the hawks defense punished the Bronco receivers with. Most of the game receivers were waitin for that hit more than they were waitin on the ball. It was awesome. 37.gif
