    Makes you wonder why the smaller market teams are taking a hit like that.. I agree with Kraft's statement for the Bills though.. If they are losing money, sell the naming rights for their stadium.. The Pats get 6 million a year for the naming rights to their stadium, that would help most of the small market teams..

    I doubt it's that easy to find someone to cough up that kind of money for a stadium in Buffalo.

    If the Falcons are having trouble, Arthur Blank just needs to sell some Home Depot stock.

    3 billion a year is split evenly with the 32 teams that's just under 100 million dollars a year before the other revenues.

    How can any team be losing money?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Well - the salary cap is something like $125 million/year.
    So - there's (before any other expenses) $25 million or so they need to make up.
