How do these people live?

[QUOTE]Their estimated combined net worth is well over $40 billion, which is more than the GNP of 150 nations. Paul Allen, owner of the Seattle Seahawks, has a 414-foot yacht called "The Octopus" with two helicopters, two submarines, a swimming pool, a music studio and a basketball court. He also has two backup emergency yachts.
_____________________________________________
But have you ever met Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder? He's worth $1.1 billion and yet, two years ago, the Redskins sued a 73-year-old grandmother for not keeping up on her season-ticket package payments.

This man also got caught buying stale peanuts from a defunct airline and reselling them at games.
_____________________________________________
In 10 years, do you think you're going to find New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft wandering the streets because of the 200-plus concussions he didn't know he had from his time in the NFL? You figure Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford will end up with ringing in the ears and depression the way former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson did? Within the past year alone, two former players killed themselves.
_____________________________________________
Jeffrey Lurie, owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, owns an 18-bedroom estate with a three-hole golf course, two-lane bowling alley, two-story recreation center and indoor tennis court. He's really going to lock players out? For what, his own ski hill?

Stan Kroenke, owner of the St. Louis Rams, owns four homes, four ranches and three vineyards. He once ordered his employees to destroy $3 million in wine because he didn't think it was up to his standards. His wife is a Wal-Mart heiress.

Malcolm Glazer, owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, once bought a $14 million Palm Beach mansion and never moved into it. He later sold it for $24 million.

Bud Adams, owner of the Tennessee Titans, has 10,000 head of cattle.

Jennifer Lopez, part owner of the Miami Dolphins, has offered to auction off her twins' clothes because they're not allowed to "repeat" outfits.

Seems like it's even too offensive that rich people merely exist.

I love how ticket holders are still defending the Owners, when raising the prices. And not listening to Fan input on how to make the Stadium better etc........... Being a ticket holder is like being a share holder of a company. You want something greater in return.

And the Owners aren't providing that.

I'm not defending them it's just a bit of a duh. Rich people own nice things. The richest people in the world own insanely extravagant things. What of it?

Gee the labor scenario is boring as all hell. Let's talk about Obummer and the libtard commie Demoncraps because there isn't a forum for such aimless drivel already on this very site.

I just see the juxtaposition of those who criticize the players for being so rich when many of them don't make $1M in their whole NFL career.

Let's be honest. The owners are lying to you when they say the NFL is losing money.

What % of their wealth comes from football and what comes from other business ventures?

I know there are some NFL teams whose profits are in the 10 million dollar range. That's not a lot of money to play with when players salaries are in the millions.

Should they use their money from other business ventures to subsidize their NFL teams?

Funny thing is... We bitch and moan but if we were in owners shoes, we would do same exact thing they do. Those people made money cause they found a way, no need to get upset, its all business.

It been reported that some players make more than owners.

PS: You never will... 31 teams in NFL do not share their financial information.

Surprise! People find it frustrating/sickening to read about wealthy privileged old white men with hundred feet yachts while suffering through rough economic times. Apathy about it is what brought us to the some of the worst wealth equality the country has ever seen.
