  •  The league itself probably doesn't make much. (3+ / 0-)

    The $9.5 billion revenue figure you cite there is for all of the NFL teams combined. Each team makes a good profit—and pays taxes on that profit—but the league organization itself likely doesn't make a whole lot of money that it doesn't turn around and use to pay its people or pass through to the teams.

    That said, I think they could and should pay the people doing the "volunteer" work here for the Super Bowl—and then coordinate an actual volunteer program to use the Super Bowl's presence to raise awareness for nonprofit organizations helping the poor, elderly, etc.
