    The people that are running the NFL are old, and as technology goes, they are way behind the curve. Stupid move on their part. Nobody was making any money on these clips, so what's the big deal?

    Im not surprised at all....well maybe that it took awhile for them to do it. The NFL puts money over fans....

    it's just because they couldnt work out a deal to get a piece of the youtube dollar. they worked something out with CBS and NBC and you can see clips of letterman, leno, etc. on there.

    the NFL must really be hurting for revenue.

    Technically, Google makes money on YouTube, I believe. It's part of their overall revenue stream and they get advertising dollars from it. It also adds to their overall appeal when attracting advertisers and investors. Given the share price of Google these days, they're going to be a target for anyone that feels like they should be getting a piece of the pie.

    Still a dumb move on the part of the NFL, though.

    I've never seen a league that's sold it's soul more to the devil than the NFL to gain more and more money and become more exclusive.

    What's even more questionable is has the league goes on this stupid rampage to become GLOBAL (have you seen NFLE lately guys?) that they would ignore youtube's massive global following and possibly a way to cut cost on marketing to the overseas crowd or even use it as a entry selling point.

    Its getting to the point where the greed is getting in the way of good business sense.

    IMO the NFL is at a dangerous point. the sport's at the peak of it's popularity but they could get into trouble with some of these moves. they're monopolizing against the fans, and spreading themselves out too thin with fox, cbs, espn, and the nfl network all broadcasting games. the owners are just getting greedy.

    The thing about it though is I watched that video a lot on you tube and showed my friends. Not once did any of us say...oh did you see the broadcast of the pro bowl on cbs? or look at that it's from cbs...etc.

    We said dude did you see that punter get jacked up!

    I think it was just as much a move by the NFL to 'not condone' the hit as it was to 'not condone' youtube playing their broadcast. I think having that hit out on you tube allows more people to view it and be like jeez that hit was really unecessary...and then call for the nfl to not allow that dangerous of play in a seemingly meaningless game.
