It has been reported that, out of every dollar spent on CFL merchandise, 54 cents is from somebody buying something green.
It has also been reported the community-owned team generated $28.2-million in revenue last year, an increase on the previous year, and miles ahead of where they were in 2004, when the Roughriders had $11-million in revenue.
The team reportedly moved more than $6.5-million in merchandise last year, more than any other CFL franchise.
That profitability is envied, and could come up for discussion at the league’s next board of governors meeting, when Argos owners David Cynamon and Howard Sokolowski are expected to revive the topic of revenue sharing. The notion was received poorly the last time it was raised, and a repeat could finally sway the duo into officially off-loading their struggling team.
just curious what peoples thoughts are on the topic of revenue sharing.
