    The NFL has larger rosters, but only certain positions are highly paid, relatively speaking.
    Wow, I know they run a lot of commericials, but geesh, that is nuts. How can they get 2.5 times the money for 1/10th the games. I know NFL games are way more watched, but 25x more than the average MLB game?

    Those are the national contracts. Every NFL game is aired on major networks somewhere. The same cannot be said for baseball, where most games are aired locally on minor stations or their own networks.

    From what I was able to find online, the average MLB game attracts 925k viewers, while the average NFL game attracts 16.5m viewersó just about 18x the average MLB game.

    I'm no lawyer. But, wouldn't the hypothetical 4th & 5th QBs have invalid contracts causing them to be voided?
