Is they crazy? Pay $19.99 for pre-season!

Unread postby OrganFreeman » Fri Aug 12, 2011 11:13 am

One would think the bloated, quiche-eating moguls that run the NFL would want to throw their overtaxed, yet hungry-for-more fans, a bone. The curtain has closed on the NFL's "Billionaires on Strike" play and now is the time to heal the wounds inflicted on those that care.

So, how about allowing those that care to watch the unwatchable - namely pre-season football - for free at NFL.com? I figgered they would...really! Silly assed me. Why drum up interest after "Billionaire's on Strike" when you can, instead, create a little more animosity by charging $19.99 for what will turn out to be a poor sandlot football skirmish amongst strangers?

A suitable motto for this season? "The NFL...We still want your jing!"

is this per game, or for the entire preseason? Per game is crazy, but if I lived out of town $5 per game is def worth it to me to watch...just my two cents

I understand that it was $40 last year and at $20 this year, makes it intersting for me. I am thinking of signing up. Of course with the game on the NFL Network tmw night, no hurry to.

The way I feel towards the NFL right now, i'll take a giant shit right on "The Shield". Craptastic shitty product league that seeks to fleece their loyal customers for every cent they can get. I'd gladly kick every owner in the teeth.

Yes, every single preseason game will be aired on NFLN, so no reason to watch it live for a price when you can wait a day and watch the replay for free.
