    It's fairly simple really.
    Same as the reason why food/beverage/tickets are so astronomical.
    The player contracts are in the millions individually and you have to get the money to pay the players from somewhere

    The people that pay those prices, for the most part, are the same people that buy their clothes at Walmart or feed their kids McDonalds 5 times a week. I'd bet XXL is the most popular size sold.

    Because people buy them at that price. Why would you charge $90 for something that you can get $300 for? Oh and grown men should not be dressing in football costumes unless they are playing football.

    He must be a good salesman if he can afford $300 shirts.

    I'm so glad Los Angeles doesn't have a NFL team ... only smart thing this city ever did.

    If dumb assholes would stop buying this shit and paying loony ticket prices then things would adjust. Until then whoever shells out for the crap deserves the fucking they get.

    i hate pro sports & what it does to a city, traffic, inflated prices on everything, food etc, parking & they usually rape the taxpayers for stadiums etc...throw in the unlikable spoiled athletes & mgt, it must be hard to be a fan of the top to bottom shitheadedness of pro sports.
