Our family is enjoying Thanksgiving and are all here and agree that is extremely unreasonable of the NFL to charge consumers to enjoy a national sport, which historically was family entertainment and costs incorporated under basic network tv and/or cable.
Sitting around the fire after dinner and watching football with family was enjoyable growing up. Tonight could not watch the Denver / Kansas game after eating and are watching some other program. For years this has been part of our holiday and today we were told by our Brighthouse representative that they would not subject their customers to such costs and would not promote some NFL package and Thursday night extra deal. We all agree and are outraged at the NFL and the monetary benefits they want to gain from consumers on something that should be included at no charge.
Our cable bill today is $175 per month, which is $2100 a year. Now, do you think that it is unreasonable for a customer of any cable company to ask that these games be included at no charge. I am really disappointed in the NFL. The change in business strategy from decades ago up to this date. The NFL does not realize what they are taking away from our young adolescent viewers, parents, consumers, sports fans, etc... including but not limited to the happiness that have taken away and what we as customers really perceive them as.... a greedy giant that wants more money.
Please be the voice for us, we are too small and unless we pull together, they will continue to nickel and dime consumers.... it is very sad, especially when I look into the living room and see all the guys in my family upset and the little boys come out in them as if they were just gut punched because they cannot watch a simple game on tv and a game that was once enjoyed and all had a passion for and historical salaries compared to the salaries today clearly show what football has become. Somebody better do something.
