If this was rigged, somebody more than the city of Pittsburgh would have to benefit. So tell me how the NFL benefits from this?
Well, for one the NFL who receieves a percetage of all NFL merchindise that is sold. Which with the huge differiencial of fans, that could surmount
to the billions. (125 billion dollars in merchidise was shipped to Detoit for the super bowl) 10% of that is 12.5 billion.
Second, The elistist corporates that own Reebok. For they have a ten year liscensing agreement with the NFL which is soon to run out. One last
hurrah before NIKE takes over? I don't know. Reebok gets huge percetage, for they are the manufacturers that make the NFL merchandise.
Seatle fans "x" = 100,000
Pitsburg fans "y" = 100,000,000 Let us factor in Enron and Worldcom etc... into our reasoning process when deciding why corporations would pull
They say it is harder to become an umpire in NFL than actually becoming a player, probably because they have to know you are on "their" team
Those are a few reasons.
