I have seen this issue discussed in other leagues and I thought it would be good to start a discussion here where we could try and throw around ideas and strategies about how each of us are handling our owner funds. I am in Tampa Bay where owner funds or lack thereof have been issue going back to last year. So far this season my funds are hovering between $4.0M to around $400k all year. I have yet been able to accrue anymore than that. My strategy so far has been to first off, cut my team salary down to around $105M. Lowering your team salary will help week to week as your weekly payout to players is lower. I went through each players salary and cut the fat. For example, I cut my K & P whom were both making over $1.5M per year and signed capable FAs at league minimum. I also cut numerous back-up veteran O-Lineman in exchange for younger,cheaper guys. I think the ideal spot for teams struggling to make money is between $100-$105M. On the ticket sales side, I have continued to slowly lower ticket prices in hopes of finding a sweet spot where I can maximize butts in seats but not hurt my overall money coming in from ticket sales. All my tickets are of the "GOOD" value but at 9-4 I have yet to have a sell-out in Tampa. I am at about the lowest I will go on tickets so hopefully I will see a sell-out in the near future. On the merchandise front I have also lowered prices 2-3 levels below where the prices started out at. Sales have been pretty consistent here but by no means am I getting rich off of these sales. On concessions I have listened to fan feedback and lowered prices here also. I have re-signed a handful of players so far, but all were role-players or back-ups and none of which received any kind of notable bonuses and most received no bonus. Two of my final 3 games are at home, so I figure to finish the regular season barely above even. In all regards this would be a great victory for me but the downside of this is that 99ovr DT Gerald McCoy's contract is up and barring a miracle he will be playing elsewhere next season. And this is where the circle goes round and round. To make money our teams need to win consistently on the field but to do that most of us need the players,ala McCoy, but with no owner money the good players walk...Its a very frustrating situation but I will keep fighting and hopefully turn this ship(pun intended) around.
