Re: me? no

July 13, 2019 12:57AM
Despite my post on the matter I am not a fan of an 18 game schedule. However, saying 'the thing serves no purpose' kind of ignores an important aspect of the conversation. According to the original post "An NFLPA analysis believes two additional games could add as much as $2.5 billion in annual revenue." Considering that the NFL is a business first and a sport second that is definitely a purpose.

I do question the math in that OP, though: it says that the expected $2.5B would result in an additional $15M in cap space per team. When I do the math I get nearly $37M per team.

Players currently get roughly 47% of league revenues. If the next CBA follows the same formula the players would get 47% of $2.5B, which works out to $1.175B. Divided across 32 teams that's over $36.7M per team, not $15M. (And considering that the average NFL salary is $2.7M the NFL could expand rosters to 65 players without impacting the current salary structure.)

Owners, of course, would split the remaining $1.325B to the tune of over $41M each.

The players are going to have to come up with a ton of concessions to get the owners to walk away from $41M a year.
