Dallas has probably the team that brings in the most total revenue in the league. Their fan base is massive and their tickets are among the most expensive in the league. If that franchise is in the red the last few years, that means Jerry Jones made a horrible business decision building that $1.1. billion dollar stadium.

It very well may be true that the teams have reduced revenue. One thing that the economy did effect is a lot of companies cancelled their advertising and their corporate accounts. One of the main streams of income to owners are advertising, club seats, and luxury boxes. Football games and that kind of stuff is among the first expenses a company is going to cut if it's revenue is down. And that started to happen in 2007. If you were at Bucs games, starting in 2007 the club seats started to go vacant.

But the NFL needs to learn a lesson that simply building a billion-dollar stadium won't automatically sell your luxury boxes for $15,000-$25,000 a pop. In these economic times, consumers and companies are putting the price tag over luxury. The league has been overspending on these stadiums.

Rooney of the Steelers said that towards the end of the mediation, the owners agreed to show the books of 3 team and Rooney say he was completely surprised that the Union wasn't interested and said that wasn't enough. The Lawyer representing the Union said it wasn't enough without even looking at the offered books.  There is that quote from Rooney somewhere on this site. This action makes it seem that the desire to see the "books" are more like a smokescreen.  If the owners said we will give the Union everything it asks for, I tend to think that any talk about the books would evaporate.

But which 3 teams? The 3 teams with the biggest revenue drops?

I doubt the league will give them 3 teams with revenue gains.
