Football is by far America’s most popular sport. The National Football League’s (“NFL”) revenue is projected to be $13.3 billion in the 2016 season, and has grown by nearly 50% since 2010. This is more than any of their competing sports leagues. As of July 1, 2016, Major League Baseball (“MLB”) grosses the second highest revue total at $9.5 billion, followed by the National Basketball Association (“NBA”) at $4.8 billion, and the National Hockey League (“NHL”) at $3.7 billion.
