Orlando is the center of the NFL universe this week for the league’s owners meetings, as we’re right in the middle of it.

Our Mike Florio has already interviewed Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Falcons owner Arthur Blank and Chiefs head coach Andy Reid for a show packed with news.

You’ll be able to see all three, and more, by tuning into Pro Football Talk on NBCSN at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Kraft in particular had some interesting remarks, disagreeing with the sentiments of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who said the NFL risked killing its business by over-saturating the market.

We could tell you what he said, but then you might not watch. And you definitely need to watch.

  1. I’ll guess what he says is it’s kind of funny how a brilliant business man could come up with 2 dozen high quality suggestions for the NFL to consider to improve their business yet the one that Cuban delved into happens to be the one that most directly affects him. Just kind of a coincidence and didn’t seem like he was really offering free consulting out of the kindness of his heart.

  2. Robert Kraft – only owner in the NFL to privately fund his own stadium and not extort hundreds of millions from the taxpayers, and no PSLs to boot.

    Also allows his football people to spend to or near the cap every year.

    Best owner in the NFL.

  3. Those of us who persevered through the Sullivan years have a special place in our hearts for Bob Kraft, a fellow season ticket holder in the old Schaefer/Sullivan/Foxboro stadium with it’s aluminum benches and dirt parking lots, who came out of the stands and rescued the Patriots from being moved to St. Louis, and built a modern sports/entertainment dynasty in it’s place. 20 years ago, that was something that happened to “other teams,” not us. Kraft bought the parking lots first, and leveraged that into buying the old stadium (which he eventually demolished), and used the stadium contract with the Patriots to prevent the move to St. Louis and then leveraging that into buying the team outright. He took a huge risk with a “Why Not Us?” mentality. What he’s done to make that team ultra competitive year after year in an era where the rules are designed to prevent that is amazing, even if they did luck into Tom Brady. Nobody could know Brady was going to be Brady, but there was only one NFL team that called Michigan to inquire about him so it wasn’t all luck. They have a good system there in NE. Having lived through the lean times, I appreciate this guy, and sometimes…….just sometimes….I wish other similar downtrodden franchises could experience this.

    I’ve long been of the opinion that he is the best owner in professional sports, period.
