In pro football, owners share the television, licensing and merchandising revenue equally among all teams (yes, equally). Forty per cent of all gate receipts are also shared around the league. Not only does this revenue sharing allow teams to exist in small markets such as Green Bay, Wis., it also allows them to thrive in otherwise illogical locations. Instead of winning four Super Bowl titles – the sixth-highest total in league history – the Packers would have shut down or relocated long ago were it not for the NFL’s wealth redistribution strategies.
Just an interesting thing to read knowing how successful the NFL is.
