Review updated:

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.

    That last play of the seahawks packers was an interception clear as day. It needs to ne reviewed again by the commission. Everyone watching mnf could see that was caught by the packers.

    The officials calling the cowboys broncos are the worsted crew I have ever seen. Denver can do what ever they want with no flags thrown. The holding by Denver's offense is ridiculous. Call the game fair. I know romo came on TV and complained so is this retaliation for that.

    Paid leave is for the birds, don't solve the problem which team members are doing. Thats going on vacation with money they don't deserve, that is like stealing and mangers are just as bad as leting the players get by with it. These players get s 3, 4 and 5 didits pay. Then when you go to the game the price is high. Look around and see all the crooks in the world. I am not ashamed to say what I see and it is all wrong. Let a regular person do something and they go to jail and lose their job and home. Here these guys gets a slap on the wrist and they make a life for themselves.

    I am a Baltimore Ravens fan. Everyone is saying than low pressure in the balls had no outcome on the New England and colts game -- well the week before they won by 3 and had a back throw a touchdown. Tell me a low pressure ball couldn't have helped that.
    I am tired of the NFL picking who gets hurt and who won't. If they don't take some draft picks AND set belachek down for a year I will stop watching football (this is'nt the first time they cheated) how many other time have they gotten away with things.
    Also if a d-player gets within 2 yards of Tom - he looks for a flag (ans gets alot of them) No one in football gets hit like Ben for the Steelers and they never throw a flag (That's right - a Ravens fan saying that because I try to be fair}

    Please please. please do something about fairness in the NFL --- if you cheat - you should not win,

    Tennessee Fan, It was said that the play(knocking ball out of end zone) was a judge ment call.If thats so, than ALL calls are judgment calls.who won, I dont care but this was the 2nd game I've witnessed the refs mess-up.More so calling the ball was NOT knock out.play it then play in right.Yes the Lions are not playing well but dont take a tough game like that out.

    What employer appeases an employee who deliberately diminished the company brand?
    The NFL, 49ers are permitting an employee to insult the nation, the vast majority of the fans and the great men and woman who defend our communities from Anarchy in the streets.

    If the money acquired by The corporation, As a result of Kappernick's disloyalty, is greater than the animus engender then the corporate mission needs to be reassessed by its patriotic leadership, however if the money is the driving force then a campaign by fans to refrain from participating in attending, viewing, purchasing souvenirs is the response to corporate acquiescence to employee sabotage of positive image.

    One athlete who uses the marketing venue, owned and controlled by the corporation I, for his or her personal political platform is stealing the time and his representation of the brand he does not own or control, unless that was provided in his contract.
    Someone who steals a NFL copyrighted broadcast or sells products with a label that is owned by the NFL would face prosecution and legal civil penalties for infringement.

    Kappernick is a thief of the NFL and 49ers exclusive rights to the NFL games and the presentation.by engaging in political protest at those games he is stealing, among many other despicable acts of anti American, disrespect.

    I am personally unable to effect the course of the NFL in this matter, but expressing my disdain and comtemp of both the employee and the corporate entity using the resources of NFL to further a political and treasoness agenda by stealing without permission. .

    In the private sector, an employee who engages in thief of corporate property in breach oh his contract is dismissed
    What action are you taking NFL 49ers?

    Suspect Trojan horse virus deleted 3 touchdown points from Detroit Lions vs. Titans on Sunday 9-18-16. Suspect Conspiracy plot: Trojan horse virus
    is giving me and Detroit Lions team, and Jim Coldwell severe anguish, causing a painful loss. The suspect Trojan virus interrupts NFL scoreboard
    deleting points that should be credited for Detroit Lions. The Trojan horse virus interrupts computer operations, telephone interruptions causing phone to cut off, interrupts TV signal causing communication errors. Suspect rapes my soul, hunts my soul, digs out my soul, and aggravates me about Detroit Lions vs. Titans and what team I want to win. The Trojan horse virus also interrupts church services, and distract Pastor Michael T. Scott preaching sermons. And distracts me praising God, prayers intruding where the Angels are. Suspect has been reported to the FTC and FBI and is wanted for conspiracy, bank fraud, identity theft, Trojan virus, and Bio tracking device records every keystroke I make etc...

    Danny Trevathan of the Chicago Bears should be barred from the NFL permanently for the vicious hit helmet speared to the head of a receiver who was already going down to he ground and immediately collapsed to the ground.
    Danny should be treated with the most severity banned from the NFL

    How can you say a player was in the grasp and blow the play dead when he fumbles the ball on first contact . Games are being fixed and all fans should boycott the NFL until they stopped letting the teams they want to win

    The officiating of a playoff game was horrific. The refs lost the game with a very important missed call!!! The refs need to do their jobs! This is upsetting for a team who deserves to be at the Superbowl only to lose because of a missed call.

    Showing final score of game you are watching in the banner on bottom of screen.
    When watching games being aired a second time, the banner with information about various NFL teams shows the score of the game you are currently watching. This seems like a simple fix for the IT department to block that information from the game being aired.

    The Saints have now been at the mercy of 4 horribly botched calls or lack of call in games.
    I plan on suing the nfl officials.
    When is it going to be enough?
    I am on the verge of never watching football again.
    Your officials are all crooked and they SUCK!!!

    Nobody wants to see 30 penalties a game, and every nice hit be an excessive hit. Your league is going to be overtaken by the NBA in less than 5 years and deservedly so. What your putting forth is an absolute disgrace

    Completely inappropriate. It was closer to a strip show. Definitely not family friendly or even close to appropriate for children. Was this even thought through as to whether children should be watching it? Was an alternative even thought?

    I had 30 teenager in my house to watch the super bowl, when the half time show started I was deeply disturbed by it. I had to turn it off. I was embarrassed by what was shown. Can you please warn us and give a rating for future super bowl half time and/or maybe make it more family friendly.

    What has the NFL become to allow such smut at a football game for a family. I watched one game this year and now I know why I don't watch crotch ball. If I wanted to watch a crotch with my kids I would go to a strip club. What a horrible example of family entertainment.

    The halftime show was not appropriate for viewers of the Superbowl. It was pornographic and disgusting. Families do not need to see this. There was no warning. I was sick to my stomach and very unhappy about the NFL allowing this type of show. So disappointed.

    Your decision to play the halftime pornography show is reprehensible. I've asked many people (women mostly) who all agreed that the show was in awful taste, felt like porn (for those of us who don't really have experience with that) and in general, completely shown in very bad, diabolical taste. Shame on you! If there's a suit, I want to join in.
