the league was the most profitable it has ever been. the money exists. league needs to find a way to get it-- be it a tax, team removal, or advertising or w/e. it's failed. nuff said... now i need a nap... damn these graveyards. hopefully that came out coherently enough
Find me one source stating the league is the most profitable it has ever been.
Bringing in the most revenue dollars? Yea sure. Adjust that for inflation and the rise of the Canadian dollar relative to the USD. After that the core fundamentals don't look as rosy. Not to mention that COSTS are also at an all time high. Labor, travel, etc.
Look I don't know what the exact numbers are better than anyone else out there (save for the league's auditor). But I can guarantee you that of the majority of teams were raking in money we'd be playing.
