ladies and gentleman i was thinking about the death of new york giants owner wellington mara's death on sunday and thought about how his idea for reveune sharing in 1960's daved the nfl and was insirped by that to posed this question for discussion should the owners of the various racings teams take control of stock car racing to save it from nascar? i'm very curious to hear any opinions from the members.

Ron,

Is the NFL a publicly traded item on the stock market? If so, was it also at the time of the revenue sharing transition in the 60's?

OK, I'm not Ron, but I'll answer Lou's question.  The NFL is not, and has never been, a publicly traded company.  It is an association of (currently) 32 teams.  In contrast, NASCAR is a family-owned company of independent contractors.  Therefore, "revenue sharing" may not work.

Cheesy  Cheesy maybe desmond and then again maybe not.the nfl and nascar are more alike than you think remember in the nfl any changes must be made by a vote of all teams and 3/4 rules.nascar's current model is a lot like the nfl's before 1960.nascar will learn the same message they learned " unity is essential to survial".
