what the fu*k u mean he pays the league not the skins. that nike deal the redskins get 1/32 of that money. fu*k you mean the league gets paid.
the league = 32 teams/owners
and in the NFL all jersey sales are split evenly between the teams. its not what indivisual team sells the most jerseys get the most money out jersey sales
on jersey sales its a 1/32 split
and on all TV Deals its a 1/32 splir no matter whos on TV or who brings in the ratings
ticket sales on consession stands each team is on their own on those cases. and the overall value of the team they dont split that either but everything else is split among the league (1/32)
the commish works for the 32 owners
He? who the fu*k is he? I said NIKE PAYS THE LEAGUE not the Skins directly, compensation is broken up amongst the league for the sponsor deal, but it's the same amount thats given to all other 32 teams.
As I said, If Nike paid the Skins DIRECTLY, RG3 would not be able to wear adidas shoes, Period. It's the same method in college basketball or college football, that whatever corporation pays that school, you have to wear that school sponsors gear from the jersey to the socks to the damn shoes. Thats an indication when you know a sponsor is dealing with a team DIRECTLY.
So your line of thinking is flawed.. Revenue is shared amongst the teams in T.V deals, but a SMALL PERCENTAGE is shared amongst the other teams.. You really think the all 32 teams put their t.v deals earnings together and they evenly break it up? NO. Not how it works, how it works is there is a certain percentage OF the t.v deal they have to share with the league.
If you really think any team makes most of their money off of that little percentage being shared on that Nike sponsor you're a fool. The BULK of the money comes from T.V deals,Tickets, and concession stands as I said. And the side sponsorships that deal with the team DIRECTLY, mostly banks, insurance companies and other companies that pay to run constant commercials and say they are the "official sponsors of such and such team".. Nike says they are the official sponsors of the NFL in every commercial they do. They don't cite a specific team, ever..
If everything was as evenly distributed as you think it was, most of these teams values would damn near be identical in terms of team worth. But they are lopsided just like in basketball. Just so happens that football is the #1 sport in america and smaller market teams wont really lose much money and with a hard cap that the NFL has, there will always be parity in terms of competitiveness of the league, allow small market teams to earn more money for playoff venues because they can compete.
