Guess What? The NFL Doesn't Need Us
Ever have that experience where you feel like you’ve spent your hard-earned money somewhere that doesn’t really appreciate your business?
Doesn’t matter if it’s a restaurant or a shoe store or a car dealer ,does it?
Leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Makes you feel disrespected as a customer.
Makes you feel like maybe that business doesn’t really deserve your business.
Well if you’re watching NFL football games and you’re not getting that sense right now I’m at a loss to explain it.
Because the NFL is telling you, and me, and football fans everywhere that it doesn’t need our business.
Doesn’t want our business.
They’re so big, it just doesn’t matter.
Too big to fail….sound familiar?
According to ESPN the average NFL ticket price when purchased from a team is $78.38, up 2.5% from last year.
Wanna take your family of 4 to an NFL game?
On average 4 tix, 2 beers, 4 hot dogs, parking, program, and 2 souvenirs will set you back $443 dollars, up 3.9% from last year.
NFL Net revenue in 2011? Right around 13 billion dollars.
If the NFL valued your business they’d be focused on putting the best product on the field possible.
They’d be working around the clock to get this deal straightened out with the referees…..are they?
No. Not that I can tell.
So, you draw your own conclusions. I’ve already drawn mine.
