    That seems far easier and more precise to track than having "Nielsen Families" telling you everything. Hulu and YouTube should be able to say "5,309,387 people, on average, were tuned into the Tennessee/Las Vegas game".

    I'm sure all the execs at NFL, ESPN, NBC, CBS, and Fox all shrugged their shoulders and said no big deal too.

    I guess we will find out when all the execs you mention dole out a massive amount of money (like way more than they pay now) in the next rights contract.

    I’m old enough to remember when the NFL was done in 2016 amid the Colin Kaepernick protest (controversy?).

    I'm sure they will.

    Doesn't mean they aren't a tad nervous today. Doesn't meant we won't see the approach by the networks change as season goes on.

    I wonder how much of the hit is the lack of crowds/atmosphere?

    Personally, as a casual fan, I'll probably watch less this year than in years past. Something about watching two teams play a game in front of little or no crowd is not as entertaining as watching a team on the road try to make a fourth quarter drive to go ahead with the crowd going crazy, the atmosphere, reaction to big plays, etc.

    Cord cutting has led to me watching far far fewer sports matches, of any kind. Fewer television shows in general, really.

    Streaming without DVR kinda sucks, and streaming and sitting here really sucks, because everyone is on a different play. I can sit in chat and know what is going to happen, because it doesn't happen for me until 5 minutes later.

    If it weren’t for fantasy football I don’t think I’d watch more than 15-20 mins of pro ball a week.

    I switched from direct tv to YouTube tv. The only television I watch is sports

    If anything cutting the cord has made it easier to find and get exactly what I want

    He will be an absolute stud if they get an O line that can protect him. Otherwise, I'm not signing another deal with the Bengals and if they franchise me I'm sitting.

    I want to say that putting games on the NFL channel on Thursdays, as I have said before, is beyond stupid.

    I get the channel, and I still hate it.

    Why? I have never seen the Thursday night NFL channel coverage. Is it bad?
