    I'd buy the UFC, kick USADA out the door, invite Brock and Chael back with immediate title shots, and pull Dan out of his fight with Bisping and replace him with Vitor...

    Anyone pulls a Mark Hunt with questioning our "testing" procedures, and they get sent to Coker.

    franchise. Established worth over unfulfilled potential.

    NFL or NBA team. Their TV contracts are massive.

    Biggest Raider fan ever bro but F that decrepit stadium - honestly as hugely thrilled as I was when they went back to OAK (and I'm a Boston Raiders fan mind you) I knew they'd leave again

    That said, I'll take the UFC until they are forced into compliance w/Ali Act, employee obligations to fighters (as opposed current and arguably illegal "independent contractor" sham arrangement in place) oh and until those anti trust fines hit

    Im a season ticket holder thats been going to games since the 90's and that stadium works just fine
    Its easy for fans from other places to support a move when it doesnt affect them one bit while the ones that have actually spent their hard earned dollars in support of this team get fucked over

    UFC or similar organisation because it's cool and NBA, NFL, Baseball are boring team sports that are played out and stagnant dying enterprises full of protectionism and corruption.

    Gladiators > team sports.

    Id go with a MLB or NFL team anyday... besides rain delays that get made up the show always goes on.. I think promoting fights would be more stressful with USADA and injuries weakening cards..

    why did that surprise you? It is head and shoulders above every other sports league on earth- both in terms of talent and entertainment value.
    I attribute America's standing as the clear #1 nation on earth to its football supremacy. There is a reason that the rest of the world plays kickglobe instead- they do not have the talent pool to produce NFL caliber athletes.

    I'm shocked that others are shocked by the NFL being the sport with the largest income. o_O

    Awesome that your a season ticket holder but sad if you really believe that facility is close to adequate let alone satisfactory in the NFL of 2016 . . . Also there's NOTHING easy about being a Raider fan anywhere and for the record I never said I supported the any of the moves or potential moves.

    Sports franchise owners don't get to DM Arianny on Twitter for a little something something at 2 in the morning.
