The basketball players still make about 3x more in endorsements than the other 3 leagues combined thanks to shoe sales.

Is that true? I don't pay attention to this sort of thing, but I'd imagine that only a handful of guys are getting these big shoe sales endorsements, similar to Peyton plastered everywhere.

No kidding? I don't think I've even heard the name Kobe Bryant since his rape case.

I don't watch basketball, so I guess I'm just missing all these ads.

basketball, tennis and golf makes all the money on endorsement. mike and mike in the mornings was comparing all top money makers as far as endorsement. Peyton, Lebron, Federer, Tiger, Jeter and Ronaldo are tops at their respective sport.

Here is a comparison for you.

Peyton (12mil), Jeter (9mil), Earnhart (13mil), and Serena Williams (12mil) who are all at the top when it comes to endorsements in their respective sport in America barely tops Lebrons 42mil, but looses to Tiger and Federer who are both at 65mil.

I think the social class of the sport makes a huge difference on how much you get paid rather than the popularity the player.

Roger Federer has 1,080,000 followers on twitter and makes 62mil in endorsements. That's nearly $60 per follower. Ronaldo has 22,800,000 followers on twitter, yet only makes 21mil in endorsements. Thats a paltry .92 per follower.

of the top 10 earners, 5 are either golf and tennis player. top 20, 10 are golf or tennis player. Think about it, soccer has by far is the most watched sport, but their top earner is at #9 at 21mil compared to that of Tiger at 65mil. If Ronaldo played Golf, with his charisma and good looks, he could easily top 100 mil.

Then there is basketball. its the shoes...

thats not true, look at Andre Agassi. He was always the top earner for tennis and always around the #2 or #3 mark each year and always behind Jordan when it comes to endorsements. Yet he wasn't really successful on the courts until he was in the later stages of his career.

I stand behind my statement that if Ronaldo played golf or tennis and he dominated the sport like he does in soccer, he could top $100mil a year.

While I was joking above, it's even simpler:

Golf, tennis and basketball = major, major shoe and equipment sales to adults and teens with lot's of disposable income and a huge pool of participants.

Soccer = parents buying the cheapest cleats they can find for their little kids. 99% of which are done playing by the time they could fit into Ronaldo's/Messi's endorsed cleats.

I partially agree with the, but soccer is pretty serious in some wealthy suburban areas. The "travel" soccer leagues in particular. Fancy adidas uniforms, often endorsed, and the kids with all the top notch gear and parents who are competing to make sure their kid has the best stuff.

bro also you need to look at the sponsors and the deals that each received. Where did Tiger and Jordan make their money (nike). Where does PFM make his money (papa J's?). Pretty sure Federer is the face of rolex and several other luxury items.

The product just isn't as "special" when it's on multiple times a week. Would Christmas be as much fun if we had it every month?
Is Baseball or Basketball or even Hockey any less special?

To be honest I would rather be able to see more games live on different days.

Still sounds like Cuban is pissed at the NFL for not giving him a franchise.

Both of my kids are in park district leagues in an upper middle class area. I buy them the cheapest shoes (Nike usually) I can find them as they grow out of them so fast. I get them the cheapest shin guards that they don't grow through as often. For the price of the league fee they get socks, shorts, and a uniform top which are nice.

Other than maybe a chair for the wife and I as they wear down or break we don't really spend money on anything else.

I will look at Sports Authority for sales and I bought my pre-teen daughter some undergarments for her jersey that she would grow into only because they were on sale for a great price. The kids have sweats but if I find them in the clearance rack and they are growing out of them I will pop for it but really other than <$20 for shoes each year there isn't much expense.

I have friends with kids in travel and they don't need much either but they do seem to actually wear their shoes out sometimes rather than grow out of them.

Oh and there is the cost of a ball which they have until they change sizes as they get older and the balls get bigger. Again not a huge or frequent outlay.

The cost is really joining the league and any Tourney fees that they decide to enter. Tourneys are nice because the kids get shirts and my daughter loves to wear her tourney tee's around the house and I haven't had to buy her athletic black shorts because she gets a new pair every year and they last her for years.

I would say yes, they are "less special". Their seasons are too long and have too many games, so individual games are less important. Because of this, and probably other factors, their TV ratings are considerably lower. I would expect that if the NFL oversaturates the schedule with games their ratings will also drop, but because of the shorter season and more meaningful games they will stay higher than baseball/basketball/hockey.

He's right about the league getting a little greedy, but it's popularity is stronger than it's ever been. Until these guys are running around out there playing tag, the NFL will reign on.

Damn I would love this. I still want a big RB in the draft either way though.
Elway has played the market perfectly.

Former Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito has said he would love to play for the Raiders. The Raiders aren’t totally opposed to the idea.

Raiders owner Mark Davis didn’t say the Raiders are definitely interested in signing Incognito, but he did say he would “have to think about” it.

I don't get what Kelly is trying to accomplish this offseason?

Sure he is depth but can you trust Dirty to run a high speed O and make the right reads and calls should Foals go down?

Might be better off with a rookie that Kelly can develop on his own.

I think Kelly wants a proven backup to Foles. Barkley isn't exactly lighting the world on fire and do you really think Kelly will trust him to run the team in a playoff run?

Every single NBA player makes serious bank on shoes. Occasionally you will actually hear (or at least I heard it in the 80s a few times) that so-and-so has been signed to a 10-day contract, he'll be at practice "as soon as his shoe deal is wrapped up."


... and speaking of fringe players becoming visible, Mark Sanchez is suddenly a hot commodity. Giants, Eagles, Browns, Rams, Titans, Seahawks all mentioned as possible destinations ... with the Titans even dangling a starting spot.

Earlier tonight, Sanchez was the topic of 7 out of 9 Rotoworld blurbs ... and because two of our former starting QBs were the other two, I thought I'd post the string:

I find that hard to believe since he has won a couple titles since he stuck it in her ass unwilling. Lol He has washed rape rep under the rug as much as I hate to admit and I don't like the guy.
