Double headers are a bit much on a Monday. I would expect the later games to have a much lower viewership across the east coast. 

 

Is the goal to eventually have every game on national TV?

When they are paying that type of money, they are going to get some concessions made to them.

That will be a hassle for fans who work and/or go to school. You think you have a Sunday game and then all of sudden its switched. Now the work/school thing plays a factor on a Monday.

Looks like I can’t plan out of town games in those weeks.  They realize that some people fly or need hotel rooms, right?

 

Realize?  Yes.  Give a sh!t?  Nah.

Ditto for me…hope it stays just with those December games as I don’t travel that late in the season anyway…but this is going to be a pain in the backside to people …

It has been a hassle for a long time.  I know people who scheduled flights for family and game was moved meaning they needed to either pay for changes on all tickets or miss game.   Game tickets should be a contract IMO and it is shame that there are fans who say this is fine but complain when players are cut from contracts where they received initial signing bonuses accounting for this to happen.

The targeted demographic will have a) plenty of money and b) plenty of flexibility to adjust to late schedule changes.

I have found that I can work remote when I need now due to pandemic changing things. But that helps me work remote while in WNY for these prime time games.

I believe they’d have an audience. I’m going through withdrawals now! I’d watch Jets and Jags right now if it were on.

not if they do it like week 2 for this year with games split between abc and espn.

 

this year it’s 7 espn, 830 abc but they could do 8 abc, 930 pm  espn west game

 

dont forget in 23 Christmas and new years are on Monday.

I guess the question becomes is there more money in a Sunday Ticket-like package, or just having every game on some network somewhere, even if those games compete?

Further proof that the fans watching on television are more important to the NFL than the fans in the stands.
