If you are one of the many people who haven’t cut the cable television, you might want to set your VCR or DVR for to tape CNBC on Sunday 7PM ET. CNBC is going to air a special called Touchdown!: The Patriots And The Business Of Winning. Regular readers of this site, know that I’ve long been a fan of the Patriots.
I hope that CNBC gets into the decision making process the Patriots had to go through with resigning players. For instance the Patriots let fan favorite Adam Vinatieri go and sign with their biggest rival, the Indianapolis Colts. There’s a lot of other things that I’m sure CNBC will touch on like the cost of building the current stadium and how they did it without requiring season ticket holders buy personal seat licenses. The Patriots are also building a new Patriots Hall of Fame complex and I’d be interested to find out how that fits into their overall business model.
I know that throughout the show they’ll touch on how the Patriots find value where other’s do not.
