    it doesn't sound like he's really bankrupting the company.  The NFL earned upwards of $9 billion last year, what would you suggest the head of such a budget should make compared to those revenues?

    •  That sounds like a for-profit business. nt (2+ / 0-)

    •  Who actually earned that revenue? (0+ / 0-)

      I know that if you read an article about TV contracts/etc., the reporter typically just states that the 'League' is making that much.  But does the NFL make that?  Or does the sum of the earnings of the 32 teams combine to equal $9Billion?  I don't know for sure myself, but I suspect it is the latter, which is significantly different.
