Reporting from the NFL Spring Meeting in Dallas, national NFL writer Albert Breer writes in the Boston Globe under the header, “Kraft investing in the future.”
Breer notes that owner Robert Kraft (left) and the New England Patriots will announce improvements to Gillette Stadium, including high-definition video boards in each end zone.
“They’ll give us the opportunity to show a lot more replays, we’ll be showing the RedZone channel in-stadium… it’ll continue to improve the in-game stadium experience,” Kraft said. “Everything where we’re touching our customers, we’re trying to customize it… I believe our in-stadium experience is among the best you can have in the country.”
On the topic of the collective bargaining agreement, Kraft told Breer: “We’re going to have a labor deal eventually. It’s a question of when.”
“Since the last labor deal, we generated $3.6 billion in new revenue, and $2.6 billion went to the players,” Kraft explained. “Ownership collectively had $200 million greater expenses on this last revenue drawn. We can’t continue that and continue to invest in the business.’’
