And this is only going up. ESPN recently agreed to spend $1.8B/year to get MNF rights for 2014-2022 and nearly all of the other rights (FOX, CBS, NBC, Verizon) expire in 2013. If those other rights also see a 63% increase (as with ESPN), NFL owners will, starting in 2014, receive $219m each in national broadcasting revenue before selling a single ticket, stadium sponsorship, jersey, licensed team blanket, beer, hot dog, parking spot, or exhibition game broadcast.
Do you still think rookies are making too much money?
