RE-INVESTING INTO THE GAME: Jones said what was “important is that you have a plan in place that takes a big part” of the league’s revenue and “re-invests it back into the game -- new stadiums, specifically.” The deal “encourages and incentivizes teams” to invest in new stadiums. The players, by having a “bigger pie, will see that the role that clubs play, see that they have the incentive, they're making the investment, they're building the stadiums, they're putting together the sales teams that go out and generate revenue. That means more money for the players, and that's a healthier model” (“Charlie Rose,” PBS, 8/23).
