It's not just about profit.....it's about global reach. How many people in Asia, South America, Africa, Australia....know about the Rangers, Flyers, Leafs, Canadians, or changing sports...KC Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks.....Colorado Rockies, Minnesota Twins, etc.

But mention the name Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, etc and the recognition is immediate. Only North American team that might garner some recognition is the Yankees. NBA teams are probably less recognized than individual players.

I say that as a passionate and fanatic hockey fan, a hardcore baseball fan, and a big time NFL fan. Soccer is my #4 sport, but you can't argue with the worldwide phenomenon that is the EPL.
