    Re: Goodell Must Go

    We're already seeing that in the NFL, Harley.

    Or have you forgotten, both the Cardinals and the Vikings had to scramble madly at the 11th hour to fill their stadiums for PLAYOFF GAMES last year!

    Is there a problem?

    Look at the monkey!

    Re: Goodell Must Go

    I would think it a bold and visionary move if I thought there was even a remote chance to cultivate a market for a team in Europe.

    But he is just using this as a chance to grab a little extra in overseas revenue (jerseys, viewers) which  seems a little silly because no one but Goodell and a few stranded fans in England like the idea.

    Football isn't Basketball, it isn't Hockey and it isn't even Basball. Right now, there is zero oversea's interest.

    The crazy thing, is that the leagues that should be doing this (NHL and NBA) don't, or don't do it aggresively enough. The NHL should be purging teams from places in the States that don't really care and trying to get some interest in places in Canada and Europe that would actually tune in.

    Re: Goodell Must Go

    I'm pretty sure I read recently that the owner of the Phoenix Coyotes -- which, apparently, is an NHL franchise . . .  who knew? -- is interested in relocating his team to Quebec. The commissioner of the NHL, according to my research (which, for those of you who don't know, consists entirely of what I can remember off the top of my head), is against this move for reasons that do not make a great deal of sense.

    Marketing is always and evermore about "where is the money and how do we get it?"

    Hockey in Florida and Arizona?
    No Hockey in Winnipeg or Quebec City?

    Huh?

    Football in the UK?

    American football?

    Hey . . .  I know, let's throw a billion dollars at the FA Cup, bring it to Disneyworld and see how the Brits like that.

    Re: Goodell Must Go

    I'm a renter and couldn't get NFL Sunday Ticket even if I wanted it . . .   well, I do want it, but not on their terms.

    I recently got a letter from Comcast telling me that the NFL Network will no longer be available because the NFL is insisting that the service be part of an expanded basic package and Comcast wants the extra ten bucks it gets by putting it on a "Sports Tier" with a bunch of other worthless channels I never watch.

    I'm pretty sure Comcast has since backpedaled on dropping the service, but the point is that we are at the mercy of these monolithic corporations who take our money and then tell us to like what they give us.

    Did somebody mention the thing about finding the money and going to get it?

    Oh yeah . . .

    That was me.
