So a team could budget for a $22 million payroll and the league would basically pay the rest. If teams can't make a profit with a $22 million payroll then they have bigger problems.

Third, with a $25 million payroll, our team will still lose money, but in the vernacular those losses will be considered a ďgentlemanís loss.Ē As a league, we will have less TV revenue, and locally I donít think we can expect to increase our ticket revenue. However, our ticket prices are going down even more. That price reduction may help attendance, but we donít anticipate it helping overall revenues.
