I think you have to look at sports team finances in a different light. Especially one of the best, if not the best and most powerful sports league in the world. I know many soccer teams have financed their teams through an enormous amount of debt, but with each new TV deal that comes along the revenue that flows in will grow. If NBC does well with the new EPL contract just think about how much revenue the EPL can generate from the US.
