This is a messed up situation. I do however get a kick out of people actually realizing how expensive these leagues are to run. So many people ridiculed those who stated how the weekly operations costs millions of dollars to operate. That’s not even taking into account weekly player and coach salaries. Just lodging and food expenses can be difficult to handle. Let alone everything else.
Jeff Garner said during this interview how the league still owes over 800k to business partners in San Diego. That’s probably a conservative estimate. The league owes UCF alone over a million dollars.
