NFL Lockout Causing Growing Concerns With Professional Athletes

March 18, 2011



In recent interview with NBC 5, Ed Butowsky discusses the impact of the NFL lockout and the impact its having on NFL professional athletes caught in the middle.

What is certainly being felt around the league is that as long as the NFL lockout continues players in the National Football League (NFL) will not receive a paycheck. Moreover these players will be hard pressed to find an equivalent salary elsewhere. Even with only six (6) days into the NFL lockout if players were not getting concerned before they surely are now. Ed Butowsky expresses that more than any other sport these players cannot afford a lockout because most players are not prepared and most will not recover from this lockout.

It’s widely seen in the public that many of these players tend to live on 50-60% of what they make which accounts for the lavish lifestyles. Various athletes are flocking to alternative jobs like Troy Bergeron who normally plays for the Dallas Cowboys flocking to the Arena Football League. Ed says that this move to the AFL will only yield approximately 5% of the NFL average salary of $1.6 million. Many realize that while the AFL is something it does not compare to the salaries received in the NFL.

Ed believes that lockout will come to an end soon, however, the scar this will leave on the players will remain. That scar put simply is the reality setting in when players will ask themselves “what will I do with the rest of my life when football is over?” This is a wakeup call to players to open their eyes and evaluate how they manage and save their money. The career span of an NFL player is typically 3-5 years, and this money needs to last them 40-50 years after they retire.

NFL Lockout Latest

  • Players Law Suite Hearing Scheduled: April 6
  • Players pursuing an injunction to stop lockout
  • Players accusing the NFL of violating anti-trust laws
  • 2011 NFL draft to continue as planned on April 28th

Ed Butowsky: Southwest Airlines Becomes Bigger & More Powerful

September 27, 2010

Ed Butowsky, Managing Partner of Chapwood Investments Management, joins NBC news at 6 to discuss the impact of Southwest Airlines buyout of AirTran Airlines.

Southwest Airlines, the low fare leader, announced Monday, September 27, 2010, their intent to buyout AirTran Airlines for $1.4 billion. The buyout would mean that Southwest Airlines would reduce it’s competition. The AirTran acquisition would increase the number of airports Southwest could reach by +25%. Included in this is increase is new international destinations. With word of the acquisition Southwest stock rose 10% and AirTran rose 60%. Undoubtedly this will mean more airplanes, more routes, more passengers, and of course more profits. Will this buyout mean more lower fares?

Ed Butowsky is quick to point out that this merger does not mean lower ticket prices. Reducing the competition is never good for consumers, but more troubling is the rising cost of oil. Ed believes that ticket prices will go much higher because of the cost of oil. However, in light of these facts, travelers will have more choices on Southwest than before.

How long will this merger take? Review and approval of this acquisition starts in the justice department which could take months. Beyond that Southwest believes it could take up to two years before all of AirTran is converted over to Southwest.

Ed Butowsky Recommends Staying Away From Airline Stocks

July 22, 2010

Ed Butowsky, Managing Partner of Chapwood Investment Management, appears live on DFW’s NBC 5 News at 10pm to discuss American Airline’s report of its best quarter in 2 years, but with a $10.7 million loss. Even with the multi-million dollar loss, American reports this as a big improvement. Ed Butowsky comments, from his point of view, that if a company is stating its best quarter in sometime, but posting an $11 million loss – this industry is in trouble. Even as American Airlines expands its partnerships with other carriers, the rising costs of oil and labor, Ed points out, it will be hard to turn a profit. While the company is still in the red, it’s not stopping from buying new airplanes to replace the older less fuel efficient ones. Is this a good time to get into the airline stocks?
