I thought the title might get your attention Anyway, I love football, but I hate the way the NFL handles its business dealings. I know they are the most successful sports ever, but last night I realized just how they make their money--by screwing the consumer. 1) Sell exlusive rights of NFL player names to EA Sports, effectively killing the NFL 2k series in the process, and driving up the cost of Madden games 2) Switch Monday night football to ESPN, so you HAVE to purchase cable to see the games 3) Only way to watch non-market games is with Direct TV and Sunday Ticket, which are both expensive. I am unable to get direct TV where I live, and thus its impossible for me to watch a single Texans game this year 4) Only way to listen to broadcasts of non-market games on the radio is to pay for "NFL Field Pass." Its only $30, but that is still ridiculous. MLB allows you to listen to all the games for free, plus you can purchase "mlb.tv" online for like $35 and watch all the games on your computer. Thousands of games! Not the NFL. Nooo, they FORCE you to watch the games they choose if you want to watch anything at all, just to up their tv revenue. Like I said, I despise the NFL and its dealings. They are making money at the expense of the consumer, and while it may be good for the players and the owners, I still don't have to like it.
