I am not sure what that has to do with this conversation when att is losing 1m+ customers every quarter with directv
Just a related observation. What was it, 2 years ago when you predicted that NFL franchises would be folding? We'll wait and see how your most recent prognostication turns out....

Well ratings were down 30% last year
Yep.

The NFL’s ratings were down across the board in 2020, but the league remains the best draw on television. In 2019, 42 of the 50 most-watched programs on TV belonged to the NFL. The addition of two playoff games this season and the seemingly inevitable expansion to a 17-game regular season only give the NFL more firepower.

And yet the networks and providers signed $113B worth of deals. That's before the ST negotiations.

How many franchises have folded? Not many I'd imagine what with financial support like this, just from TV....

NFL’s New TV Deals Will Hand Teams $300 Million A Year, And Still Won’t Drive Franchise Values Higher.

LMAO Good Lord lol...

You will see a NFL team (or any professional team for that matter) move to another city before it EVER goes out of business, period. The last time the NFL lost a team due to lack of financials were the original Dallas Texans, that was nearly 70 years ago (1952, to be precise). In fact, this year is the 60th anniversary of the NFL instituting revenue-sharing...each team gets their equal cut of the collective TV money pretty much before a season starts, and most of that money is already allocated to the salary cap before the first down of the season is played.

Hell, the way it's always been set-up, barring stadium issues (which should be all taken of by the team IMO, or at least pay no less than half of the costs, if it's a government-owned facility), you would have to be an absolute sh!tty businessman if you allow your team to go out of business--unless you're Art Modell, and you had Baltimore and the Maryland state government bail you out with a sweetheart, big-money stadium deal.
