Abstract:
Debates about the cost of ticket prices have always been an ongoing phenomenon for sports fans that attend games. Indeed, ticket prices for National Football League (NFL) games have risen over the years, but so have income levels of game attendees as well as overall fan interest in games. New claims by certain fans stemming from the "kneeling" protests that began in 2016 NFL season have brought the salaries of NFL players and the impact of those salaries on ticket prices into further focus. Using data from 2011 through 2016, this study found that player salaries do have a statistically significant if low effect on the price of tickets in the NFL.
