Least greedy sports league?

I think you'll need to start defining your terms.

MLS has relatively low season ticket prices, but sells ad space on their shirts. The NFL makes season ticket holders buy preseason games at the same price per. Most MLB teams have at least some very reasonable ticket prices, but stadium walls are festooned with ads.

How would you quantify any of this?

It's really hard to qualify much less quantify this.

Your above MLS example on low prices probably just illustrates the current market value (i.e., interest) anyway. The all want to maximize profit.

"League with fewest egregious examples of greed" may be better, but they all have 'em.

I hate to say it but it would be easier to discuss "most" greedy. And even then, it's kind of a tie..."Most egregious examples" is probably the only thread that could really last...

Which professional sports league out there appears to be the least money-grubbing?

What do you mean by money grubbing? They're all out to maximize their profits while minimizing overhead which is what all businesses do. So not sure what you're trying to get at. All of them would sell their figurative souls for bigger profits.

Yeah, um, businesses are in business to make a profit. This is a silly thread. The "selling their figurative souls for bigger profits" is probably the best way to look at this, but the answer is still all of them.

The one whose owner is seeking the least amount of power. But anyone in charge of anything always does it for power, control, and domination.

With that said, any owner would try to gain as much of it as possible, if given the oppurtunity. They are all naturally competitive. They want to maximize profit, but not to increase personnal wealth. They all have way more than enough luxuries one can need. They don't do it because they want to afford more luxurious massages, or more sushi dinners. They do it because they want to 'top guy', or 'top owner' if you will. It's their competitive drive that pushes them to want more, that same drive we end up defining as 'greed'.

But truth be told, there is an answer to your question. The one who is the least greedy is the one that doesn't have a shot at out-profiting the other ones. No way soccer out-profits the NFL, or NHL. Just make basic rough estimations, and you'll have a decent answer.

Owners don't want to increase personal wealth? I'm not sure that's true.

Everybody does. But unlike most people in general, they already have everything they want/need.

Doesn't mean they don't want more. Mark Cuban has everything he could possibly want. But he likes making money and always wants more.
