NFL Marketing Committee Meeting Minutes

As hypothesized by Jeremy Lott:

You can almost imagine the NFL board meeting on this.

Suit: “Should we enforce the rebroadcast rule on those bars with the jumbo screens?”

Second Suit: “No, no, no. Trying to do THAT would create a serious backlash.”

First Suit: “How about bullying a few congregations that want to host a party for their members?”

Second Suit: “Now, that we can do.”

Lott's summary of the situation is identical to mine:

The suits who run the National Football League have found a new, innovative way to look like a bunch of greedy bastards.

Don't think for one second that an "NFL Channel" will be a freebie addition to your cable network.
