    normal year meaning they're not in the middle of a boom, but they're also not losing $70 million because of the xfl or $30 million because of wwf new york/the world.

    $500 million in revenue - $450 million in costs = $50 million profit. It's not that tough.

    dude, they spend 450 million, get 500 million back, which means 50 million in profit. profit being the money they keep after all of their costs are recouped. they are a profitable business because they get back more than they spend.

    Bischoff might have meant that they made 60 million in profit.

    Anything in the positive is good. Though I am kind of surprised they are only making 50 million in profit.

    bischoff meant profits, yeah.

    and for a company to consistently make a $50 million profit each year is good no matter what business you're in.
