RIP Wellington Mara

If you don't know him, he is the man in the 1960's who suggested to his fellow owners of the NFL (National Football League) that it would be "good business" to share the TV revenue. He owned the NY Giants and had the most to make by not sharing. Simply because he loved the game and knew it would make him and everyone else a fortune, he suggested revenue sharing. The rest is history. Football has become "America's Game" and makes plenty of money for owners and players alike.
