| More Sports Board|| I always thought the NFL Blackout Rule was a boneheaded business tactic - Y.A. Tittle on 3/23/15 at 2:55 pm|
Apparently the NFL is coming around to see it the same way. Is there any other business that uses outright bribery to have people buy their product? Plus, I always saw the TV product and the stadium experience as two distinct products. I never understood the sense of tying one to the other....View Topic - Replies (3)

It's sort of what my legal training tells me to assume, but I didn't graduate from Yale Law. I'm okay with that, business and personal. Good amount of personal stuff on my business end - I guess it's my primary account - very little business on my personal, but I've always assumed it's all basi...View Topic - Replies (7)

Hall of Fame Pitcher. Won two World Series and 4 Cy Young's, yet notoriously disdained the media and flat out decided not to talk to ANYBODY for the bulk of his career. And it was ALLOWED TO HAPPEN?!?!?! How the hell did the league not implode without reporters being able to get his great insig...View Topic - Replies (7)

I mean absent anything else. I have no real affinity for Ohio State, but I really started to cringe a few weeks back when there was talk that because they were down to the third string QB, the committee should possibly take that into account in whether they get the playoff nod. This was, even th...View Topic - Replies (3)

Is part of our problem that our staff is overly-reliant on this rating system, and not really doing their own homework and/or not really recruiting to o...View Topic - Replies (7)

I'm told that American sports (pro and college) HAVE to structure their games that are broadcast on TV such that they can maximize ad revenue through excessively long stoppages, TV timeouts, etc. I notice soccer doesn't do that, but has various banner ads on the field and other ways to work in spon...
