You need to stop using Trump as your only source of information. TV numbers overall are weak and are declining and would be worse if it wasn't for the NFL. Too many other options available. FOX might be in some trouble if they didn't have the NFL.

TV viewership is most likely the network problem, league still gets paid. Unless the league foolishly sign a contract letting the network to based payment on viewership.

The NFL could play in front of empty stadiums, and teams would still make more profits than any other league. The only reason they want people in the stands is for the optics on TV.

NHL teams give away free tickets and still can't get 1/2 full arenas in many cities.


Jack Kent Cooke, a Canadian and the owner of the Washington Redskins stated in an interview in the late 80's or early 90's about fans and attendance at Redskin games..........he stated........."we do not need one person in the stadium to make money..........TV makes us the money".

Okay, this is making me laugh...

Diddy, Kaepernick, others could buy Carolina Panthers and make history

Diddy says he'll make Kaepernick the starting quarterback. [icon_lol2.gif]

Maybe the Browns can pick up Newton?

Newton has made comments he should not have, impo he is much better QB then Colin ever was.... Diddy needs to watch some game film. Colin would make very good backup QB, only team he would fit as #1 is the terrible Cleveland Browns.

Newton is a goof for sure, but if I owned a team and had a choice between those two for quarterback I know who I would pick. :D

For myself I'd drop both, and aggressively go after either (a healthy) Aaron Rogers or Russell Wilson.
I guess it's good thing I'm not an owner

:-X You keep your hands off DangeRuss. I mean it. :biggrin:

Cam Newton is odd. He was amazing last year and now not so much. I have to wonder if part of it isn't coaching? Maybe a fresh team is what he needs.

They did it! Kudos to the Cleveland Browns for completing their perfect season! 0 wins and 16 losses!

Now that fellow who was organizing a parade if they stayed perfect can go ahead with his plans!

Seahawk ownership have some choices to make in the off season. i.e head coach, keep the current one or kick his as :cuss: to the curb.
As well to the on field talent

Seattle had a lot of injuries this year, and the offensive line was not the best either. Their back-up players did a commendable job, but they weren't good enough to make or go anywhere in the play-offs. Some very strong teams in the play-offs this year, and I am expecting to see some very good games - starting with the Falcons and the Rams.

Always fun to watch Cam Newton when he's having fun.
