Super Bowl 48 Media Days is now officially wrapped up, and once again, it was an event that was flooded with media members asking all the hard-hitting questions, and some that don’t. There were also fans in attendance as well, that paid a slight fee to attend the event on Tuesday morning, which ultimately ended up being another display in just how profitable the most popular sports league in the country is.

According to Adam Schefter, the league charged 7,000 interested fans $28.50 to attend Media Day, which ended up making the NFL nearly $200,000 richer.


While I’m sure that $200,000 might be a little bit of chump change to the gentlemen in the NFL offices in New York, that’s still an insane number when you actually sit and think about it.

But I am curious about one thing. Would you, as an NFL fan, pay $28.50 just to get that much closer to your NFL heroes? Feel free to answer in the comments below.
