A Prediction For The Next 10 Years:

Recommended Posts

zamboni

You will HAVE to have Direct TV and the sunday ticket to watch ANY NFL game, due to them sticking billions into the NFLs pocket. Personally, I don't think 10 years will be quick enough- they will do it within that

Why do you think that? The national networks don't get to do it for free....they have to pay hundreds of millions to the NFL also.

I hate all the thursday games, then you have the double header on monday night, then later with the saturaday games. its all about them pushing as many games as they can to get more advertising dollers.

I wish it would stay the same, all games on sunday afternoon, and the one monday night game.

the way its going, in 10 years there will be games 7 days a week.

I'm stull using an antennae, its 90 ft in the air and I get a ton of channels, when the NFL goes to cable or satellite only, I'm out. I also think that it is a real possiblility that all games could be eventually broadcast over the NFL network or NFL sunday ticket. Why? You ask, MONEY. As soon as the NFL determines that it can make more money as a kind of Pay/per View item, it will no longer be for sale to the big networks. It's big enough to carry its own stinking network, why wouldn't they eventually air all the games on it?

Direct TV pays BILLIONS upon BILLIONS, that's why. People have to pay to watch on there, so they will also bump their rates. Mark my words- it will happen.

So do the national networks.

It'll never be exclusively on a cable provider unless the networks stop paying the fee, which will never happen because it brings them loads of advertising money.

CBS - $622M

FOX - $712M

ABC - $550M

ESPN - $600M

DirecTV - $700M

Those are rights fees PER YEAR.

End of story.

As much as satellite TV and cable are progressing into more and more households, the NFL is such a huge market it will always remain on the big networks and regular TV to some extent. There is way too much money to be made in advertising and as far as the NFL network, why bother when the big networks are paying the fees mentioned above. If they move games strictly to the NFL network and strictly to satellite or cable, they'll never recoup the fee dollars they get now.

When you get the NFL Ticket you are watching the games on a CBS/NBC etc affiliate for that area. It's not a special group of broadcasters, its still the networks out there broadcasting. They just open the cannels up to you when you subscribe.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
