It's entertainment/sports with a union.......negotiating for how many people are going to sleep in a 4 or 5 star hotel when they travel out of town and get a stipend for meals.... yada,yada, yada.
sorry.........it's not real world economics. I don't get a tax payer subsidized place of employment, do you?
The NFL has figured it out, which is why they've always had significant revenue sharing--- qualify that by saying--- if you want to be a BIG league in the US with 30+ teams, you have widely disparate market potentials. The only way these teams can compete with each other on a level footing is if revenue is redistributed and shared.
