Watching NFL football hasn't been free since cable became a thing.
Sure but ESPN is a part of the most basic cable packages....And this whole Amazon thing runs the risk of alienating people....

What the hell. It's a business who's propose is to make money. The idea that fans have some sort of right for the NFL product for free is a pretty entitled point of view.
Taxpayers built how many stadiums? The only entitled assholes in this scenarios are the business people that think they made the nfl instead of the people who loved it.

That has zero to do with the economics of sports.

The expected growth is why they are so valuable. You don't know what you are talking about if you don't start with that. That's why they have to go international, they have to go pay per view, they had to get gambling money; to keep valuations going up at the pace with which that global class is stealing from the people across the global economy.

Cable is expensive and a lot of folks don't want to pay for it anymore and don't have cable any more. Cable is a dying industry and by no means is it free.

The whole world buys from Amazon already. A huge percentage likely has Prime already. This is less of an issue than Peacock for sure.

Chase Young is looking like one of the biggest busts in recent memory, he’s not lived up to his potential at all.
in his defense,he looked great last night better than he ever did while in dc outside his rookie year.i think he had 2 sacks.

His lone sack was a total whiff by the LT (only credited with 1). He did have a TFL and another QB hit and an assist. Not a bad performance.

I don’t know know why you’re all about feelings and emotions on this. Business is business.

Seasons been over for a couple weeks. Ravens Lions would still be getting talked about.
