    Again, if this bill going through right now passes then yes our government will be able to ban those websites from our internet.

      Who thought it was a brilliant idea to not let local fans watch a game if it's not sold out? How is that supposed to make people WANT to buy expensive ass tickets to go to a stadium with overpriced merchandise and concessions? That just doesn't make sense to me.

        Without the blackout laws, the value of the NFL ticket decreases tremendously.

          Yeah, and I don't think it'd be blocked to U.S. only viewers. If the website contains copyrighted material, authorities will force the hosting platform for the website to censor the website.

          But then again, it's seen as more of a "first step" to the end of net neutrality than anything horrific to the sense of what China, North Korea, and other countries where the government basically controls what it's citizens are allowed to go and see on the internet.

          Viacom already lost a lawsuit against YouTube though. Viacom thought YouTube wasn't complying with copyright laws since some things would slip through and actually filed a lawsuit demanding lists of usernames and accounts who were putting things up and even just viewing them, but they ended up losing which was great.

            Direct TV exclusiveness sucks. Hope it ends after 2014.

            I am gonna watch Braves on MLB.tv in an hour. For $100 I get 90% of the 162 games live. The non live are about half on TV locally. And the ones I can't see live I can see a few hours after it ends. And it is the same for every team that isn't local.

                    Packages which are overpriced IMO. For the amount of money I pay to watch 1 NFL team for a season, I can get all the NHL games + playoffs.

                      When I was at college, and wanted to watch my NY teams, I bought a slingbox for 100 bucks and has been one of the best purchases I have made.

                      For a lot of you who are complaining, I suggest looking into it. Probably won't be the solution for everyone here, but I can't say enough good things about it.

                        Im ok I get 4 games a week on Sky (6:00, 9:15, Sun Night and Mon Night + any Thurs Night, Sat Night, all Playoff games, Pro Bowl and Superbowl). But that means less Tennessee for me :(

                          Goodell would likely tell you to "be thankful for the games you get over there, if any," and, "go **** yourself."

                          But how are those owners going to make money if you aren't forking over $220 (plus upwards of $50+ for parking) to sit behind a pillar which blocks 25% of the field, so that you can watch your team play against a team that going to beat them with ease? how dare you arent grateful!
