I was looking at Deadspin and viewed an article claiming “It’s Only A Matter of Time Before an NFL team’s Financials are Leaked“. The post ripped the NFL owners and Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Unfortunately, an NFL team’s financial records are already in the public record: The Green Bay Packers release summarized records of their expenses and profits.
I’m not sure the union wants to hear about how Green Bay’s finances are going. The Packers expenditures on salary went from $110M to over $160M.
In four years!
I don’t think the NFLPA or whatever passes for it is going to want those figures to become public. Then again, the Packers have a set of detailed financial records they don’t release. I’m sure there’s something the owners don’t want the public viewing.
