roc6783: xaks: You *know* its crap. Unless you're one of the four football fans in America stupid enough to not have seen this already, then I got nothin for you.

Actually, I hadn't seen that before.  Thanks for the info.

Checking ESPN's attendance ranks:
1. Jacksonville has been on par with GB since '08
2. Every year since 2008, the Packers have had about 20% lower attendance than in 2007.  Yeesh.

Also, if I remember correctly from the lockout negotiations, if you use the Packers as a decent template for how modern sports teams make money, only about 25% of their income comes from ticket and in-stadium stuff.  60% comes from the TV contracts.


Glad I could be of service!

Gotta say though, my Pack's way of doing business should not really be used as an example, good or ill. They are a unique thing in sports, and there will never be another one like them that makes it.

There's too much money to be made otherwise. You should pick one of the other 31 teams to use as a model. Small market teams exist...Buffalo, etc.

Unfortunately, the Packers are the only team that I am aware of that has to publicly show their books.  While how the money is spent may differ, do you really think that where the money comes from is that different for the Packers than other franchises?

Absolutely it is.

Go look at what you can find on Jerry Jones' finances. Or the Wilfs. Or Haslam. Etc etc.

You'll never, ever have another franchise like Green Bay. They are a rich farkers toy, an exceedingly restricted club, and you need to be the 'upper' 1% of the 1% of the 1% of the 1% to even be considered.

Remember, the people that decide on ownership and who can be let in...are the other owners.
