    Just thought it was interesting a bit to read the newly released 153 page document showing what the NFL demands for the biggest sports day.


    What the NFL wants


    • Free police escorts for team owners
    • Use of Presidential suites at the city's top hotels at no-cost
    • 35,000 free parking spaces
    • All revenue from ticket sales to the game
    • Free curbside parking at the NFL House, a "high-end, exclusive drop-in hospitality facility for our most valued and influential guests to meet, unwind, network and conduct business."
    • Local police dedicated to anti-counterfeit enforcement, provided at no cost
    • Twenty free Billboards in the city promoting the Super Bowl
    • Installation of ATM machines at the stadium that accept NFL preferred credit and debit cards, along with the removal of ATMs that "conflict with preferred payment services."
    • Two top quality bowling venues for an NFL celebrity bowling event
    • Portable cell phone towers
    • Hotels where the players stay should be obligated to televise the NFL Network for a year before the Super Bowl-at no cost to the league
    • Free promotional space from local newspapers and at least 6 radio stations for the "NFL Experience" in the months before the game
    • Creation of "clean zones" around the stadium and the hotel for NFL execs that prevent "certain activities" as well as suspend new and existing permits for those activities
    • Free access to three top golf courses in the months before the game
    • Exemption from state, county and municipal taxes


    "Host committees and the NFL promise as much as $600 million in economic benefits when the Super Bowl comes to town. Robert Baade, an economics professor at Lake Forest College,
    says the actual benefit ranges from $30 million to $90 million. In another estimate, Webster University economics professor Pat Rishe told Bloomberg that the benefit realized from the 2011 Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium was between $125 and $174 million."

    Remember, the IRS considers the NFL a non-profit organization. :snicker:

    :jj: Then the owners rape their cities by making the taxpayers pay for the stadiums, then the league turns around and blocks the same taxpayers from watching games in those stadiums on TV if they aren't sold out.

    Fucking insanity.

    I think the "clean zones" action item addresses exactly that

    It is crazy. Also, I think the owners paid Roger Goodell about 35-44 million this year in salary. :wtf:

    He seems like a real dickhead. At the draft when he meets the players after their names are called and gives them a big hug... it's so transparent.

    After living through the Olympics and annual b-ball championships, I pray Atlanta doesn't have a Super Bowl coming our way.

    We won't be seeing a Super Bowl north of the Mason-Dixon line again anytime soon.

    Why don't they just add a demand that Beffy be guaranteed a sitcom on CBS while they're at it? Might as well make it as ridiculous as possible.

    The owners love Robert Kraft... New England could get one.

    The taxpayers pay for all of this up front then get a nebulous "benefit".

    John Oliver's excitement for the World Cup is tempered by knowing information about FIFA, the organization that produces it. John details the problems with the upcoming tournament and the staggering allegations of corruption against FIFA.
