From the Paper:

"The NFL League has an internet network, which has a portal relationship with AOL that generates traffic to its League site and to all the club sites that are linked to it in the NFL Internet Network. This study has shown that club seating is the number one revenue generator for the NFL League Clubs. The NFL business enterprise model contains only three forces around its perimeter as compared to the standard business enterprise model which is four-dimensional. Because of the guarantee of a substantial stream of revenue and leverage that is effective in the negotiation of residual incomes the NFL franchises are very lucrative. In contrast the English Premier Football League is enormously popular and enormous describes as well the investment in stadiums and facilities that have been made in this league. However, there are governance problems with the Premier English Football League clubs and recommendations have been recently stated by the UEFA which have been related in this work. These recommendations have included more supporter involvement in governance of the clubs as well as including more opportunities for women in this league. The English Premier Football League from all appearances has realized the flaws that are inherent within its business structure and is making a move to become structured somewhat more like the NFL Football League."
