NFL Network Commentary

Robert Seidman of TV by the Numbers chimes in on the NFL’s experiment with its own network. Money quote:

The NFL probably has too much hubris, even now, to fold up shop with the NFL Network and package the games it kept for itself up back to the TV Networks …

I understand greed and hubris as much as the next guy. Sometimes it pays off. But this isn’t one of those times. The good old fashioned greed of extorting the television networks, who will in turn extort the advertisers, who will gladly be extorted since they cherish the demographics of people who watch NFL games, seems to be the way to go.

Check here for background on Suddenlink and the NFL Network.

    I think it is a shame what the NFL is doing for the Saints and Dallas game. It is all about money. GREEDY, GREEDY, GREEDY.

    i agree with you Elaine. Very much so. guess the NFL needs to pay some of the WILD PAYCHECKS with the money they make.
