Potential revenue loss 2020

Recommended Posts

Have been reading that the potential loss in revenue per team is anywhere from 70 to 100 million per team due to the virus. This would lower the salary cap for 2021 for the first time. Seems that this must be realistically accounted for going forward with any current negotiations.

An article I read said that the potential loss for the NFL is $5.5 billion. That would put the average loss per team at around $170 million.  It makes me wonder about teams that are/will be close to the cap number, will they have to cut players in a salary dump in order to get under a future cap number that is potentially much lower?

 

Here is a link to the article I mentioned.

I wonder how their TV contracts are written.    Does the NFL get compensated in any way when ratings are higher?   I assume the games will have higher ratings than we have seen in a long time.

This will effectively kill the Chiefs dynasty before it even began ... Mahomes if he was smart would be asking for his mega contract right now.

I don't think he has anything to worry about. He's a 24 year old with an MVP and Super Bowl championship under his belt. If the Chiefs don't/can't pay him $35-40 mil a year, some other team will. Regardless, he's going to get paid.

He is not getting 35-40 if the cap goes down 40 percent.

Agreed someone will pay him

40% would be a really big cut. Teams would have to cut half their players. I did read though that some contract extensions are being put off because of the uncertainty of the cap.   I think the nfl would come up with a solution before players would start getting dumped. Hopefully we get to have at least season ticket holders at the games. Someone mentioned also groups of people like families wouldn’t have to be socially distanced at a game. 

 

I also think if their is no fans ratings will be big for awhile but eventually I think fans would lose interest fast.

They could push money to future caps but that is a dangerous game to play as no one knows where pro sports will be next season. I agree that they probably don't let it go down as far as 40 percent but not sure they really have a choice. High end contracts especially QB contracts will come down.

The union and owners would work something out. If anything like that would happen it would kill the players and the owners..

If there are no fans at the stadiums and there is a reluctance to go to bars, Sunday Ticket purchases will go through the roof!

I wonder about the effects of fan alienation for the sport. I haven't watched a baseball game on TV (and only attended one I was asked to go to live) since the 1981 strike. I totally gave up on a sport I loved.

 

Hey, there is always soccer and lacrosse.

Hopefully it does reduce the cap. Would love to see all these players cry about not getting that huge contract! Contracts are ridiculous now. Can only imagine how some of these players would react lol

Contracts are what the system will sustain. The best players get paid accordingly. You want to see the players cry just for %s and giggles?

Even the thought of this will make the owners second guess these long term contracts. NO WAY do I give Dak 35-40 million a year, no matter what. But if the cap might fall down 20 million, he'll be a cap causality anyway..

You shut your dirty mouth!

 

If there's no football on TV, I'll go watch grass grow.  Or watch grass die, since it will be fall-going-into-winter... I'll watch the leaves change color... yeah... that would be more exciting than soccer!  haha

I just threw up in my mouth.   What an embarrassingly bad take.   Hey, it’s your opinion, you’re entitled you it.   As am I to mine.    How sad.

    • Okay, lets sign Clowney, cut Brissett and trade for Adams?  Do we have enough money to keep Brissett and add these two playmakers?  
    • I don't care what you call it but I call it a FORCE in the middle that was clearly lacking w/o Woods in the lineup!  Did you not wonder what's wrong with Leonard for the first 4 games of the season as his presence was not noticed as much?  Is it a coincidence, Leonard suffered a concussion that had him thinking retirement due to a 3 wk headache?  Why did our D in 2018 grade so high and became respectable but in 2019 they struggled so much?  It's because we didn't have that force in the middle to eat up blockers to allow our LB's to do what they do best!  Why did Tony Dungy come out and say the most important position is the DT and immediately we traded for Buckner?  Maybe Tony reached out to Ballard to give him his thoughts who knows but the moral to the story is a dominant Defense has a Dominant force at the DT position regardless of 1-2-3 tech terminology! 
    • We have enough money to sign Clowney and keep Brissett. Brissett is even off the books after this season.
    • Moose, this is not rocket science to believe this D should be much improved.  Let's just say we didn't add Buckner, the experience the rookies gained last yr and their projected jump in 2020 alone is enough for an improved season.  Bobby O is projected to be a Star, Leonard All Pro, Turay has sack leader potential which is All Pro, Rhodes in this system could be back to All Pro, Rock Ya-Sin ready to break out, Houston already is a force, Hooker with improved pass rush could be Pro Bowl talent, ETC...  It all start upfront with our 13th pick, Deforest Buckner, a former ALL PRO!  Yes, Could, Should, Hopefully but its not an Einstein formula to see we should not only be good but have the potential to be GREAT!
    • Sorry...   but not sure you even realize Al Woods is NOT a 3-tech.   Never has been.   Woods is a Nose Tackle.  That’s not a 3-tech.    It’s a 1-Tech or a 0-Tech.    Buckner is a 3-Tech.   Our Nose Tackle last year was George Stewart.  I believe he graded out OK.  Played mostly running downs.     Hopefully this is some food for thought.
