Fitch announced Monday that its rating outlook for the league was ``stable.''
``The NFL has a strong and highly regarded economic model,'' Fitch said in a news release.
It noted the league's lucrative long-term television contracts, revenue sharing and track record of conservative financial policies. The primary risks, according to Fitch, are the nation's current economic problems and the uncertainty surrounding the NFL labor agreement, which was shortened by the league to end after the 2010 season.
