Of course I would like to see a new CBA soon. The morbid side of me also wants to see it end up in court, so that all of us can take a look at the books for every NFL team.Yahoo!'s Jason Cole wrote a curious piece about how a prolonged court battle might provide some very interesting revelations about how teams run their business. I would love to see how teams are spending their money. The business major in me can't help but be curious.
Ultimately, as a fan of the 49ers, I would be excited with the prospect of a new CBA being finalized quickly, because I do believe that the team is upon a tipping point with regards to performance on the field. Insert a viable QB and we are playoff bound. I was curious as to what others on this site thought about there being a prolonged court battle.
Some things to think about:
1) What teams really is investing a lot into the product on the field.
2) How much are teams paying coaches compared to other teams(or at least payroll sum).
3) How has a new stadium affected revenues for the teams that have them.
4) What kind of info is hidden on those P&L statements.
5) If there are significant losses for certain teams, how much are they? and how was the money spent that lead to that?
I could go on and on about the things I would love to see, but I figured that some of you might have ideas of your own. Either way, it's worth discussing.
