space1999: I have no sympathy. The fans brought it onto themselves.
Gecko Gingrich: You could say...they bought their ticket.
skozlaw: The NFL is screwing itself in the long term. I already gave up on pro football and lots of other casual watchers I know are rapidly doing the same. Between blackouts, the lock DirecTV has had on Sunday Ticket (not to mention it's poor quality and high cost) and the obnoxious cost and inconvenience of actually attending a game a lot of people are giong to start losing a lot of interest. Not enough to make it go away or anything, but I have a hard time seeing how it stays the ridiculous cash cow it is now.For $96 a year I have Netflix to give me instant digital gratification. I've spent about $200 on video games on Steam in the last year and I now have so many stacked up waiting to be played that I could just do that with my free time for probably the next three years.Sorry, NFL. Your product is of poor quality, high price and low convenience. You offer crap and only fanatics are going to care after much longer./ but, no, I'm sure you're totally immune to the effects of your own hubris just like the MLB was until the mid-90s...

cameroncrazy1984: I take it you haven't seen their revenue lately. Or their ratings.
