ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the long-term profits in store for the football team Chicago Bears. The National Football League (NFL) pays Super Bowl participants based on the game's outcome. A player from the winning team gets $78,000 plus a ring allowance of $50,000. Because of the NFL's revenue-sharing agreement, the team owners get no instant windfall. Local fans who own "permanent seat licenses" will profit from the team's winning streak.
