The 16 NFL stadiums that will host NFL games this weekend have cost taxpayers nearly $3 billion, a new analysis found.


By Travis Waldron

All told, 29 of the NFL’s 31 stadiums have received public funds for construction or renovation. In the last two decades, the analysis found, taxpayers across the country have spent nearly $7 billion on stadiums for a league that surpassed $10 billion in revenue last season.

To learn more, download the full paper from Ted Gayer, Austin J. Drukker, and Alexander K. Gold.


You can also download the complete set of data on 45 stadiums built or renovated since 2000, 36 of which received federal subsidies.



The cost of an average NFL ticket for 2014 is $84.83. That's a lot.
Team Marketing Report estimates the Fan Cost Index stands at $479.45, a 4.4 percent increase from last season. That's a lot.

Is the Sock Market really a slave market?
Do you really think we live in a country where a government is for the people by the people, the USA?

USA, is a Land of the free, where big businesses are free to do as they want.

Colin Kaepernick


Colin Kaepernick’s net worth is estimated to be at approximately $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, this number is only an estimate; since Kaepernick stopped playing football in 2016, his earnings have become less clear.


Kaepernick’s earnings are likely to skyrocket in the wake of his new deal with Nike, in which he serves as the face of the company’s 30th anniversary ad.

If the NFL has 1700 Players per season, and if you divide the ( known )7 Billion in Federal USA Aid to the NFL in the last 20 years, between the 1700 players, that is welfare of 200,000.00 per player per year.

Plus the NFL estimated earrings is over $10 Billion a year.

When I cleaned up after sport arena events, I made minium wage and it was a 3 rd shift job, part time, depending on event.
I could not watch events for free.
I made front page article in City newspaper, I was clearing the new sky walk for the rich.

When I made a claim about a body injury, I was asked to prove I was injured on the job, My Clam Denied.

in the last 30 years.
I played no golf
No concerts
no vacations
I saw one Pro Ball Game that my sister paid for when I was watching her boy.
