How much does it cost to run one of the most popular sports leagues in the world?
Well, a ton actually. The NFL’s most recent tax filing reveals the league spent more than $10 million on legal fees in 2011. Yes that was a lockout year, but still, it gives you a bit of insight into some of ancillary costs that go into operating a business of that size.
The league’s accountants earned a paltry $704,811 by comparison (click to enlarge).
