While surfing the world wide web I came across a few interesting facts and figures regarding the Tampa Bay Buccaneer franchise.

Since Malcolm Glazer suffered his first stroke in 2006 the teams value has taken a steady nose dive. The team was purchased for $192 million in 1995, a then record for any sports franchise. In 2007 the franchise had an estimated value of $963 million according to Forbes. Malcolm essentially grew the franchise by 75.6% over the course of 12 years. The final two years has scene the value decrease from an estimated worth of $963 million in 2007 to $779 million in 2009 according to Forbes. Which is decline of 19% or $184 million over that span.

Using numbers from some cobbled together information from various websites. The TV contracts in 2009 breakdown as follows.
NBC, ESPN, FOX, CBS paid an average of $94 million to each team
Direct TV paid an average $22 million to each team
Teams also made an average of $59 million from concession sales.

Total received from above $175 million, which does not include Stadium Naming Rights, Sponsors, Merchandise sales or ticket sales.

Total money spent on player payroll in 2009 according to USA Today was $84,592,822.00 million. Couple that with the sweetheart stadium deal the team has with the City.

Just figured some might be interested.

Well all they need to do now then is to figure out a way to trade down in the draft.  The combined amount of money paid to a #15 and a #25 is less than half of what it will cost to pay a #3, for example.

Good stuff Yucc.

So essentially the Glazers pulled about $90 Million out of the Bucs last year less coaching/staff salaries and operating expenses at OBP. Unfortunately for the near sighted Glazer boys the short term gains are causing the overall value of the team to plunge.
