I know a couple people who will argue that the CURRENT TV contracts + sponsorships pay ALL the players and staff before one ticket is sold in the NHL. This is demonstrably true from just TV for NFL, probably for baseball also. NBA might need to throw sponsorships into the mix, but the same is generally true for the NBA. BTW, throw in sponsorships and foreign TV rights and I believe the same could be true of MLS.
