I agree with Mailman. When you go to a game and have a 4 person family, it will cost you about $300.00 just for the tickets, $20.00 to park and eats could run you 60 to 80 more. You are looking at around $400.00 which is RAPE!!!! I do agree the owners don't need to make anymore but the players don't either. Make it more affordable for familys to go to the game and they would increase revenues that way. This next part is interesting. This is the league minimum with no NFL experience:

In 2008, $295k
In 2009, $310k

In 2010, $325k

In 2011, $340k

In 2012, $355k

The NFL Players Union and the NFL owner's usually construct a new "minimum salary" deal every 4 or 5 years.




*** These numbers are accurate but are for players with zero years experience, i.e. rookies. The amounts go up with player experience, topping out at $845,000 in 2009 for players with 10 or more years experience. Also, unlike some or much of the money in the very high dollar contracts of the top players, none of this money is guaranteed. You have to play to get it.


Here's the whole chart through 2010:




Credited Seasons 2008 2009 2010


0 $295,000 $310,000 $325,000


1 $370,000 $385,000 $400,000


2 $445,000 $460,000 $475,000


3 $520,000 $535,000 $550,000


4-6 $605,000 $620,000 $635,000


7-9 $730,000 $745,000 $760,000


10+ $830,000 $845,000 $860,000
