not sure if their rosy numbers make sense. Advertising and TV revenues have to be down yet the cap is going up. Everyone has a smile on their faces. I think it may be a sham and here is why total revenue is measured in US dollars. There are 30 teams of which 24 are US based. There are 6 Canadian teams. Total revenue for those 6 Canadian teams is actual Canadian dollar revenue gerated multiplied by the US currency exchange rate. total revenue = 24 US teams revenue + 6 Canadian team revenues total revenue = 24 US team revenues + 6 Canadian teams actual times exchange rate I am too lazy to look up the actual numbers but can someone fill in the blanks? I would alsmost bet that the entire increase in revenue is due to the stronger Canadian dollar and actual revenues declined. Why is this important? The cap in 2008-9 may be lower than next years just because the Canadian dollar may not rise anymore.
