Im not a Texans fans, but Im pretty sure one of OBrien's genius GM moves was trading away their 2021 first round draft pick for Tunsil.

About this attendance issue- Goodell and the owners should have agreed to make it fair for everybody- no fans at all. The idea of some teams are allowed to have fans and others are not is ridiculous and unfair, from both a competitive and economic standpoint. Goodell comes across as a bigger ass with each passing day.
With the league's revenue sharing model, gate receipts are shared, so economically all teams benefit when there are fans in the stands at just a subset of the stadiums.

Wow- that’s something I didn’t know- ticket revenue is also shared. Is team merchandise also shared? I’d think parking and concessions aren’t shared.

Merchandise sales are shared too because the league negotiates such deals. By the way ticket sales are shared, but only 40% of such sales with the remaining 60% for the home team.

Also, parking and concessions aren't shared across the NFL, but are shared by the home team and whomever owns the stadium. So it's possible that a team receives all of that revenue like Jerry Jones in Dallas because he owns the stadium and the company that does the concessions too. Another thing, local corporate sponsorship revenues remain with the home team because the local teams negotiate those deals.

About ticket revenue being shared- this bails out lousy owners like Mike Brown. He barely draws flies to the stadium due to a consistently substandard product, and he still gets a piece of other team’s draw? Where’s the pressure or incentive to win for cheap owners who care more about the bottom line than winning? Brown is a poster board for this.

The NFL is setup so that no matter how incompetent of an owner you are, it's impossible not to make money. The league is a cash cow.

It looks like the Broncos/Patriots game has been postponed again until next Sunday due to another Patriot person testing positive this morning.

Seems to me, as the year progresses and the bye weeks can’t be juggled, it will be difficult to get the schedule played on time if positive tests keep popping up.

I'm sure the NFL is aware of that and has contingency plans all set like playing a reduced game schedule.

Maybe a Belichick plot: ;)



Belichick: "Cam needs another week to recover, and our backup quarterbacking has sucked."

Looks around the room and points to a ball boy

"You, go get Covid."

NFL: Game postponed.

Evil genius.

I can foresee an 18th week being added before the playoffs begin to handle the games that cannot be rescheduled otherwise. The NFL could eliminate the extra week off between the conference championships and the Super Bowl.

He’d better hope the league don’t find out about this plot. :wacko:

I don't know about other places, but around here when you're discussing the NFL, if you refer to a team simply as "The Cheaters" everyone knows exactly who you're referring to.

Much like a certain baseball team going forward.

Lots of milestones with the Steelers win today:

  • First time since 1979 the team has started 4-0 (longest drought in NFL)
  • Broke a 23 game streak of scoring fewer than 30 points in a game (NFL's longest current streak)
  • Chase Claypool sets a team record for a rookie with 4 touchdowns
It was a bizarre game. A couple of horrible pass interference calls (one each way), some questionable coaching on both sides -- Steelers failing to double cover WR Fulgham, who seemed to be the only receiver Wentz was throwing to, Steelers constantly running on first down, even though they couldn't run the ball. Philly attempting a late 57 yard FG at kicker unfriendly Heinz Field, Philly trying to cover Claypool with a linebacker on his final, game-clinching TD.

Eagles defensive coach using a Lb to cover Claypool at the end of the game there is something that should get a coach fired.
