1st game is simulcast, 2nd game is ESPN only.  Done.



Abstract idea - east coast/central stations run an abbreviated version of their late local news in place of the halftime show in this scenario.

Who wants to pay a premium for declining ratings and overall dis-satisfaction by viewers?

Advertisers see the real ratings and not the sanitized version the Nielsen Company gives to the public.


It's NOT pretty...and the NFL also has a serious problem with lagging attendance at games.

People don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars to watch a protest.


The pro-sports TV heydays are gone....ESPN is toast...and advertisers will no longer pay premiums to view the NFL's garbage.

The only way the NFL might survive is to cut all telecast back to 3 cameras...and force the viewers BACK into the stands for the au-natural experience.

For the record they have stopped kneeling...

One alternative could be to share all Sunday coverage between the four networks, allowing all of ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC to do games free of conference?

I don’t think that will happen. The NFL wants to make as much money as they can.  If each network gets a shot at games then they have no reason to pay the current rate.  They NFL wants a bidding war.
