Laughs just three days away announce some -- could end up winning a much needed boost in revenue but our next guest just wrote about the playoff money link from Forbes.
Michael zany and is executive editor of Forbes thanks so much up for being here Mike Blake I was reading your article is -- -- as you said the road to the Super Bowl.
Can actually cost the -- more money than it generates is that possible.
Sure because you have added expenses for things like travel for things like running your stadium although you do get some help from the NFL for.
Do those extra cost buy your ticket revenues are basically split evenly throughout the league.
Where you really can make money if you're a playoff team is if your team that's about to get a new stadium so you're talking about the vikings in the forty niners yeah whom should have usage than three years.
And also potentially the Atlanta Falcons in four years because it helps you sell sponsorships.
And those new things called PS cells are personal seat licenses.
Which have to pay a lot of money for that just gives you the right to buy -- season ticket.
And it's all about timing as you said I mean really the New England Patriots -- opposed to topple getting a new stadium exactly at the right time.
They win the super ball.
They move into their stadium that season.
And all the son Tom -- a superstar they go on to win two more super balls Gillette pays a lot of money for naming rights they have among the highest prices in the league for tickets.
Well deserved them -- -- New York we've seen it really a contrast with the giants and the jets.
The giants winning two super balls within the past five years they've had a much easier go of it selling personal C licenses that MetLife stadium.
Then the jets have who've really struggled the last couple years even though both teams share the same stadium -- just because a team has wealth doesn't guarantee success.
All of the top ten most valuable teams in the NFL only five -- in the playoffs that's because there's so much parity in the NFL when it comes to over 60% of your revenues being shared equally because it -- huge national TV deals.
The visiting team gets 34%.
Of the ticket revenue and you have that hard salary cap.
That limits which you can pay players.
We're really helps that money -- in those big bonuses that you could pay out front.
And -- get pro rated over the course of the players' contract in terms of the salary cap can help a little bit but we've seen the Redskins for years.
Have among the highest payrolls in the NFL.
And really only this year after many years getting back into the post season.
And you know Mike we've seen while blizzard of pink slips meant not to combat January sales of Victoria's Secret -- -- about seven NFL coaches like not been waiting for that.
Seven NFL coaches five general manages.
-- is this unusual is this just the nature of NFL these days it's very unusual I've been following this for about twenty years now I've never seen so many coaches and GM's.
Get the -- slipped.
Right after the season and then and and I think this goes back a bit to parity teams feel they can turn things around rather quickly.
Because they'll have as much or close as much to spend on players in -- as all their arrivals and we've seen some new owners come in that are looking to turn around franchises that have been struggling.
Fitch con with a job wars for example up he fired his -- same thing with has -- He's in new owner of the -- he's gonna bring them into quotes there so they wanna start new here is winning years.
My 'cause they knew enough -- Mike always fascinating stuff thank you so much thank you driving it I.
