So when do you think the sponsors start asking to renegotiate their deals with the NFL? Or when do you think sponsors start offering significantly less than what the NFL is used to?

5 years ago, everyone wanted to be in the NFL game. Now I think sponsors are like "this is kind of a waste"


I would think that is happening right now in closed quarters.

To put it in a business and customer context, if companies are going to ignore their customers and how they align to the companies (nfl) and advertising, they are finding out that the silent majority is kicking the collective asses. Hit em when it hurts.

Budweiser is one company to shake the NFL tree right?
Now Papa Johns, these are 2 of the top 10 sponsors.

NFL is dying, if there was no fantasy football, i think we would be looking at a niche sport (below NHL)


You do realize that the networks are the ones that pay the NFL and then the advertisers pay the networks. Only the networks can "shake the tree" Papa johns is bitching about his business but Yum foods said they are making more money. :roll:

The next time the TV contract comes up it might be for less money but the salary cap is going up next season.

So is the salary cap going to go DOWN? And if so, how will teams/players deal with that?


Is it? I assume most NFL revenues are based on TV contracts, which are multi-year.

But otherwise, yeah, teams have factored in cap increases into their deals.
