If you are one, pretty please buy this game? Imagine what this game could be if someone gave it some damned attention! Anybody have a rough idea of how much it's worth?

WOW are u sure this is right this is not what I expected they make at all.

I think that would just be an estimate of ad revenue. Those numbers don't take into effect that to participate in the game playing, you have to pay for seasons.

Yeah that is interesting but I think stine is right, where did you get that info from caesari?

w3snoop.com --That link is to the page. Also says the servers are based out of San Antonio, and I think it's Cincinnati, so take everything with a grain of salt. 

I don't really know what it takes into account, just thought the figure was interesting. Not what I expected. Anyone with more knowledge than I can probably decipher it.

Don't underestimate how many people play this game for free. Sure I bought a 10 pack on this ID, but on my other ID I haven't payed for a season in at least 2 years, it may have been even longer. Prior to this stretch I probably payed for about half my seasons, and I'm nowhere near the most accomplished coach in this game.

There are website appraisal sites out there...I forgot which one I looked at when I thought about selling my webby, but I'm sure you could get a figure for any site.

I went to a couple different websites, and judging by the history a few of you did too. I see figures ranging from just under 30,000 to 142,000 dollars, but that is STILL south of where I expected it to be.

those #s are all wrong. $142,000 in revenue wouldn't even pay 3 employees. They have 10 times that many employees.

just a reminder that Revenue is only sales. Does not include expenses.

Yeah, but you're a still a very top notch coach, I'm a decent coach (like most of the people who play this game) and I very rarely get seasons for free. I think you're overestimating the number of people who get free seasons.

in 2009 wiki has whatifsports at 600,000 users - other sites have 350,000 users when TK sold wis in 2005. there'd have to be a LOT of free seasons to make only $142,000 in revenue.

These sites don't necessarily  tell how much money a company rakes in, just how much it would cost to buy the site.  I wouldn't be surprised if/that they don't make that much money, they don't advertise AT ALL.  It's a classic Catch 22 though, the game doesn't get the care it deserves because it doesn't rake in the dollars FOX wants, but it doesn't rake in the dollars FOX wants because it doesn't get the care it deserves.

+1. As we all know, it just has so much potential.
