You gotta check this Vikings Blogger's reaction out about half way into his transmission, when he learns about Viking CB Jeff Gladney's 3rd Degree Felony Assault alleged actions...

NFL players are criminals, who knew?

I wonder if he's a Timberwoofs fan too.

The NFL thread is the closest to a soccer thread I could find for this video.

Probably wants to get out of town because everyone on the team knew Danica finally kicked his ass.

The Packers were a pretty good team in need of offensive line protection for QB Rogers, as well as wide receivers for him to throw to.

So what does the GM do in the 2020 NFL draft?  Uses their first round pick on a QB, apparently thinking he'll be Rogers replacement in, what, a year or two?

I don't blame him for wanting out.

What a great season opener this game was.  Close throughout and won in the last few seconds.  The Bucs deserved the win but will certainly have to watch turnovers and penalties.  They almost lost the game because of them.  Dak and the Cowboys are looking strong.

Haven't really watched much NFL since 2015 when Calvin Johnson retired. Yet another great players career wasted by the Lions. Swore the whole thing off at that point and life has been good.

Lions are on Monday Night Football tonight so I thought I would give it a watch to check out Jared Goff. Stafford is good - very good indeed. However, Goff seems fine. If the Lions don't draft some cans of corn with those picks it should turn out okay for them.

Goff played here at Cal Berkeley.  Now I admit I didn't much follow the team those years - haven't since a bunch of selfish players like MeShawn Jackson shit the bed - but I was shocked he was even drafted.

Ok. Well he collapsed in the second half. Goff blows.  Maybe in 6 more years, I'll watch a game again.

What's kind of fascinating is that most of the NFL TV contracts expire 2022 (MNF/ESPN expire this year) and almost all reports think the TV contract price tag will actually go up. Especially now with streaming services getting into it. The reason is evenif with ratings are going down, Live Events is a huge want for TV channels because other regular shows people TIVO or stream & watch later and fast forward the commercials, Live TV/ sports you watch Live and more likely to watch the commercials, so advertisers really like that.

https://nypost.com/2020/12/16/nfls-monster-tv-deals-with-networks-amazon-will-surpass-100b/

Current NFL TV deals (source Wikipedia)

Broadcaster           Term       Yearly

ESPN / Disney    2014–21    $1.9bn   
DirecTV / AT&T    2015–22    $1.5bn   
NFL Network    Unknown    $1.3bn   
Fox: NFC Sunday 2014–22    $1.1bn   
CBS / Viacom    2014–22    $1.03bn
NBC / Comcast    2014–22    $950m   
Fox: Thursdays    2018–22    $660m   
Yahoo! / Verizon    2018–22    $450m   
ABC Wildcard       Unknown  $100m
Amazon            2020–22    $65m+
Westwood Radio  2009–10   ~$15m

Last year there was a lot of talk of boycotts and ratings going down etc. I heard reports and believed them that the TV rights will go up in price. THey came in during this summer for 2022/2023 season and they did indeed go up per year

ESPN / Disney    2014–21    $1.9bn   /  2022-33  $2.7bn
Fox: NFC Sunday 2014–22    $1.1bn   /  2023-33  $2.2bn
CBS / Viacom    2014–22    $1.03bn /  2023-33  $2.1bn
NBC / Comcast    2014-22    $950m  /  2023-33  $2bn
Fox: Thursdays    2018–22    $660m  /   2023-33  $1bn (Amazon Thursday)

It went from $5.6 Billion a year (Just TV rights) to $10 Billion a year. Direct TV/ATT both partnered for Sunday ticket at a cost of $1.5 Billion a year, that is up at 2023 also that will be another bidding war.

I hope the NFL collapses, and these network sports departments go broke

I believe that their O-line is the worst they've had in my lifetime.  These guys are trash.  No push in the running game.  They get stood up in the passing game.  They look lost.  They honestly look like they've never played the position before.  I doubt Big Ben makes it passed game 6 before he's out for the year with an injury.  That may be a good thing though because I'm sick of him.

The analysts were bragging how he has the quickest release of any QB so far.  That's not necessarily a good thing.  The guy is scared.  He's getting popped regularly.  He's running for his life.  Then you see guys like Tom Brady that seem to just stay in the pocket as long as he wants and is never touched.  He also has a quick release but doesn't need to hurry.

It's going to be a long season.
