The N.F.L.’s ‘Old-Media” Blackout Broadcasting Fail…Today they just drove fans to watch the game streaming on-line for free and it works great!!!…Thanks N.F.L. for promoting web T.V!!!FAIL!!!
Today,Sunday September 19,2010, will go down in history as the date that the N.F.L.unwittingly ushered in the brave new world of on-line streaming internet T.V. as a dominant up and coming provider of broadcast entertainment for television.(SOURCE)
Thanks to their old-fashioned outmoded strategy of blackmailing local N.F.L. fans to purchase over priced tickets to see the game live on T.V via a traditional broadcast outlet that has paid untold millions to them to do it,or in person attending the game and sitting in the stadiums,or via a satellite provider …

…or they threaten to lockout and black out of the broadcast of the local team to the local community, costing the local sports clubs, bars and restaurants millions of dollars by doing so, ruining their business they have developed over the years entertaining football fans on Sunday.

Much like what has happened to the music industry that has seen their business revenues diminished because they have not embraced digital downloading, and chose to make an enemy of the fans that chose to use Napster, there are multiple unnamed services on the internet that are providing the fans with a rich streaming experience for all the NFL games live, which makes shutting them down a futile game to participate in, and one in which they will never score any touchdowns.(SOURCE)

The old folks that run the N.F.L. have paid expert consultants that promise them that no true fan will want to suffer through the low def internet stream that the free services currently provide, and that no one will pay the $30. dollars that the paid illegal services are offering, because I do not mind the near high-definition stream I am watching today here in San Diego with my friends on my High Definition Vizio,because I get to at least watch the game at home, when it was blacked out by the N.F.L.!!!

…if the person who is streaming it live from their digital recorderr would like for me to chip in for his NFL Sunday ticket subscription that he or she is sharing, then I will have no problem doing that, but, he is not asking, so to just keep it all fair and equitable, I have clicked on three of the ads that have appeared on the stream, just to support the site.(Source)
…do that people and it’s all good!

I have no doubt that the N.F.L. will get all litigious to thwart the live streamers, but if they go the route that the music business did, and attack their own fans,…I hope they realize that that was the kiss of death for the music business,…

So, either shape up, get a clue, and advance into the future with your fans,…or your revenues will be relegated to the memories of the financial heyday of the past!!!

First step is to stop blacking out local games due to low ticket sales…or kiss your jobs goodbye!
