We don't run one warm sunny place to another warm sunny place.
I I didn't I worry because -- that's -- weekly sports update I know it's not snowing down by you is it done.
Well hey honey but the thing is look where I am I -- Well first of all a lot of Dallas.
That behind me is the one point two billion dollar Cowboys Stadium.
My nominees KS corporate officers -- the -- to build this stadium.
For the Super Bowl is coming up and then the one in Indianapolis that's coming up next you'll -- only architectural firms ever done that so that's kind of cool.
But you notice by the Hollywood suspense but as I have this Anjelica.
Halo like look behind me which you already knew it was automatic and our -- finally picture that confirmed that angelic look what you think.
I asked I even ring.
How I -- yet.
Maybe I needed just constantly I think what I read -- -- -- tonight it is huge games leading into the PGA championship we'll cover that next week.
But what you're talking about ticket to the -- -- here it's a tough ticket in a couple of days so for those cynics.
This -- usually bowl games crazy this is gaining 3235.
And at -- Monday night game is 3535.
-- will be the toughest.
-- hit you in the history of the secondary market they used to call scalpers got a call secondary market the average price.
He's 11100 dollars a got a -- right here wants to do it no no no can't happen 11100 dollar that's a lot of money.
Do you stay in that upper -- prime season gone for 4000.
Dollar is that's true.
Oh yeah I feature well equipped thousand dollars and the average -- sell 11100.
We've never seen.
Prices like dad in the -- basically because Auburn and Oregon have never won national championships.
So -- alumni base is pretty prolific beaten Auburn revenues about 7980 million dollars a year Oregon spent twenty million last.
Those are important because they fuel all of the other sports.
-- title nine.
The women's sports those are very important.
So -- that these two teams get the bigger -- if you win the national championship.
Allows them to generate more money for their programs when Texas won a national championship a few years ago and Pasadena.
There merchandise revenues went from 4000008 years traced to eight billion a year which was very important because that helped fuel other stuff.
Yeah interesting Rick -- finding that there is a -- and bigger and demand to watch these schemes to attend these -- in there had ever been right we have.
You know there.
-- doubling the price now to get Monday Night Football we have more viewers than we ever had a lot of them are little people like my son.
Is this to my this is my crazy theory this -- ball.
This signal was taken off and as a result the entire sport is just on -- there.
There you go with this false crusade on behalf of the little people -- I don't -- pretty consistent -- you -- but let me tell -- -- You know how many people play fantasy football now 29.
That fuels and that's exactly what we're talking about it because of that that allows ESPN two didn't want to ask.
Billion dollars for Monday Night Football and what else that does is allows the total revenue from all of the networks.
-- comment on an annual basis to the NFL four point 55 billion dollars I suspect that's even more little bit -- yourself entries.
Yes it's sad but I gotta tell you and and -- bad for the little people my son was in a fantasy football league and because of it.
It entice him and therefore need to watch and all of the teams -- we would never chosen to watch I think if you didn't have something on the line.
And now that even brings you down to the college level there's got it -- has got to be part of the reason why even at the college level of these schemes are so hot.
-- -- both of them to you first of all in the NFL level there were fifty games this year where -- 25 billion viewers that's unheard the next.
The series events that we could close were Dancing With The Stars -- only a couple of those episodes anybody -- Did at that level so people are watching a prolific numbers to colleges.
Number Q -- two weeks ago we started this bowl season -- 35 cold lol wait too many -- you don't -- Guess what viewership has been up 15% down for the Rose Bowl and in others.
Clearly there's a lot on certain days but the bottom line is it's not just out here watching.
But -- who's watching.
These are people -- 20% more likely according to Scarborough research -- money market accounts -- people sent like more likely to do business on the Internet so or corporate America.
They love the fact people with these are watching these games.
Right that's great for advertisers and the green point now let me segue into this we actually -- potentially have an NFL strike coming up.
One of the things were talking about though is adding another -- to this season.
This is got to add fuel to that fire -- Well.
Good thing -- a bad thing a lot of players are saying eighteen games vs the current 68 that's not safe and we don't want to do it.
Well under the current system they don't want to do it.
But the beauty of those extra two games may be twice as many dollars as it figured out that's too extreme games during the season.
And the bottom line is that you have more money you may have more money displays and even though both sides are stoking or a labor stoppage.
That may begin as early as the end of our.
Those who gave me give -- more revenue which -- hole because if you split that that may be the first step toward a settlement.
Yet you know what -- You -- -- points today were -- -- right now I got this way again to Stamford could this whole story is this sort of mind boggling.
The -- Stamford is being offered.
Staggering amounts of money to go -- -- the NFL level.
Agree or disagree we'll make -- comment weren't staggering figures and just be great here's.
You just aren't just because your salary and a relative basis may not be staggering but all the reason he can continue with connect.
A -- It's it's is this precedent that we're gonna -- offering go to this kind of exorbitant money and I know we sent everything we just steady.
-- money maker and one could argue that if he brings on the winning team he deserves it but.
Come on yes but I put it in the context of corporate America if you run a corporation it -- -- 120 million dollars in revenue every year.
We he is the top level college.
Sports program Ohio State's Florida's Alabama southern California's.
Dead what is your CEO entitled to make.
Well you can call it exorbitant if it's compared to certain things but -- that I think it may not be -- and here's the other issue.
It's a free market OK okay and within the next guy's going to including pro ranks Jim Harbaugh is tremendously marketable and their -- -- by the way and good luck.
Decided to stay for an extra year why he -- -- number one draft pick.
In the entire NFL draft.
But he likes his professors he's getting an architectural degree understand and that's why you like your professors.
And he says that he wants to finish is her Stanford it is laudable but clearly not the norm in these days of college athletics.
Agreed that when I heard that Andrew Luck I sit up and cheered for you -- because I do think it is a brilliant and it says something and he's gonna end up finishing his degree in three years he's finishing his junior to your point it is -- architectural design.
Where you -- imam was gonna end up now.
Well yes first of all -- architectural design we are starting in daily campaign right now -- we're together a later on we will figure Atticus.
Andrew Luck for the Heisman Trophy next year we start that campaign right now -- December 8 2011 we'll do it now as far as your question about.
Harbaugh yes maybe goes to Michigan maybe goes to the San Francisco 49ers.
I will tell you there are six or seven college programs that will move mountains to get him.
And -- three or four NFL team it'll move those same -- maybe with equity.
As far as the -- moving opportunity to get -- I would love today could be Jim Harbaugh almost as much as I love to be myself which is.
-- -- And angelic don't forget and doubt I'll ever got -- don't -- forgot about it.
You and I think we're glad don't good scenes in.
I -- week in Phoenix we've got to let these games again.
I would bitter about it I'm down there at least in on the snow like we are so old.
