The real potential BIG Problem for DTV and Football

Recommended Posts

NE has damaged the game. It feels like nothing that happens matters because they always win anyway.

 

None of the young up and coming stars are able to build a resume.

 

Mahomes the phenom MVP with a guru coach!

 

Maybe they can come watch NE win the Super Bowl with me this February.

 

That is hurting the game, IMO. Nobody is up to it when it comes to NE.

I get what you mean and to each his/her own. But between the slowness of the game, and the interminable dead time for commercials, endless stream of penalties, etc.,  I don't know how it would hold interest for 3.5+ hours if it wasn't your team.  Full disclosure, we don't watch Bills games live except for 4pm starts (and even then, only sometimes).  We watch later with commercials and halftime removed. 75-90 minutes which is reasonable for a game with a clock time of 60 minutes.

I get this part. it keeps getting worse...2 minute commercial for a replay review that takes 10 seconds.

I view this rather simply as a fan and as a consumer.  Anytime the Bills are on ESPN, which I can't imagine would be more than 1 game a season, I'll subscribe to their service for that month.  Once that month has elapsed, I'll walk away and cancel.  College football and basketball fans, as well as MLB fans, can do something similar during their seasons.

 

ESPN is garbage outside of live sports.  I honestly can't think of anyone I know that would pay for their original "content".

Their production value on the NFL has gone to ***** as well.  Not just the announcers, half time show, etc.  I remember watching a game last year and noticed how they were mugging the crowd noise.  It made it less enjoyable to watch.

What NE is doing in the NFL is no different than what John Wooden did at UCLA in college basketball for a decade from the mid '60s to the mid '70s.

 

Many consider him to have "ruined" college basketball for an entire era, unless of course you are a UCLA fan.

 

The problem isn't that NE is on too high a level, the problem is that everyone else is too low.

 

BB is the smartest guy in the game and as an organization, they are operating on a higher level than anyone else.

You're right, and that is the frustrating part.

 

All these great young talents turn to duds when they face NE

 

At least KC lost on a coin flip. Mcvay, who is some sort of supposed offensive genius couldn't even coach his team to a TD in the super bowl

 

If the Rams lost 37-34 it would be different

In Toronto the cable monopoly provided every NFL game, through Direct TV, as part of a widely-enjoyed multi-sports package ($1 a day) for 16 years.

 

It provided (guessing) 8-10 games a week not "normally" covered on cable TV.

 

then DAZN snaked away the NFL coverage 2 years ago, which it wasn't remotely ready to handle

 

so the cable monopoly now provides roughly half the games on semi-subscribed and regular channels and offers the entire NFL package for an extra $200 if you wish

 

get ready for your turn.....

 

 

 

in addition, DAZN has snaked away Canadian coverage of a lot of good soccer including all Euro Nations games, Champions League and the EPL....

I’m waiting for this to turn into a PPV by the game situation. I don’t see a way around that with streaming becoming more dominant. 

That will be the way it eventually goes.  There are tons of middlemen that really do nothing but buy a program and sell it the public. 

Its the ol' Jewish business model and its been around a long time, but there's no need for it in the same way there's no need for record labels anymore.   If you produce content, the public pays you for it when they want it.   You're seeing credit card merchant processing companies starting to shrink for this same reason as the direct pay and ACH products are gaining by the day.  Ticketmaster and their gouging is going to fall soon as well, because they don't add value, they just mark up and force to pay because of a contract they negotiated with providers.

Nothing is more fair and streamlined than a simple pay per view system.  Eventually it will rise to the top.
