This photo may be some of the reason why players demanded more of the NFL's revenue in the most recent collective bargaining agreement.
Steelers minority owner and owner of Legendary Pictures Thomas Tull listed his 15,000 square foot
compound home in Calabasas, Ca., for $11.5 million.
Look, he lives on a Cul-De-Sac. What a chump.
Tull's money doesn't come from owning the Steelers, of course. He's the owner of Legendary Pictures, the movie studio that produced recent Hollywood blockbusters like Pacific Rim ($425 million), Man of Steel ($668 million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($1.08 billion).
A lifelong Steelers fan, Tull purchased a minority sake in the team in 2010 largely because, in his words,"I’m just an investor and wanted the team to stay in the same hands and continue the success they’ve had."
Certainly, there are owners of professional teams making headlines for other reasons, and Tull selling his house probably isn't a news brief anywhere else. Seeing houses of such size surrounded by others of a similar appraisal is fun, though.
Maybe it'd be a smart business move of Tull to give quarterback Ben Roethlisberger 10 percent of the gate of the largest film he produces next year if he signs a five year deal for the league minimum.
