Sure, there will be sponsorship money to make, but it’s not as if the Broncos were thin in that category either with Tim Tebow at the helm, who is owed only $1.57 million this year.
Fans, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and Manning himself might not lead to a more robust economy in Denver. You can’t say the same for the losers in the process.
Manning going to the Tennessee Titans would have meant a lot more return on the investment. Their situation is so bad that people have returned PSL’s that they already purchased so that they don’t have to pay for tickets any longer. And although the San Francisco 49ers have sold out this season, there’s no doubt that momentum with Manning could mean a whole lot more money when the team moves into its new stadium in Santa Clara.
