49ers Reuben Foster arrested on domestic violence again (released claimed by Redskins)

If you are going to argue solely from the perspective of this one tree and ignore the grove around it (with regards to Foster) or the forest in which it lives (the moves of this franchise going back 20 years), okay. Good day, then.

If they're making money from it, they don't really care if the bar is empty or packed.

Yeah but advertisers (the bottom line of TV) pay out based on what they assume the value is of the eyes on their products, they gauge this through research and ratings to account for the number of eyes. Things like this can throw the ratings off.

That costs them money. Getting monstrously large broadcast right fees from Fox, CBS, NBC, ESPN, and now Amazon is so much easier.

Then there's NFL Sunday Ticket.

Those broadcasters are paying those monster fees and still making bank on top. Cut them out and keep their profits for yourself. It's not like the NFL doesn't have the capital to develop this sort of system over time.

I suspect the counter-argument might be "if the bar can afford the re-broadcast rights that means they're making a certain amount of money per table, and thus you can assume that there are enough viewers there for you message to get through." (*)

 

 

(*) Ignoring the fact that there are usually so many TVs that the viewer can switch their attention/radio box to a game that isn't on commercial break (or turn the sound off). But that's the same issue advertisers have in residential households.

  1. It takes A LOT of work and revenue to get a system like that up and running. There's a reason why there are only a couple of potential competitors to Netflix, and they're all backed by more traditional media companies (Hulu, SlingTV, DirecTV Now) or major players in tech fields (YouTubeTV, Amazon, Playstation Now). It requires a ton to get it set up and to keep it working ... and they screw it up from time to time.
  2. If you do it yourself, you cannot create the competition where Fox bids against NBC who bids against CBS who bids against ABC/Disney ... who all get surprised when Amazon comes into the game. It's the Microsoft model from back when PCs were relevant: be platform agnostic, but what everyone wants to run.

Per Julia Jacobo of GMA, Ennis said she suffered a concussion as a result of the alleged assault. 

 

If you watch the video it has pictures of her neck and face after the assault.  

The story at one point was that she got in a fight with another woman, came home beat up. He broke up with her and she flipped out and claimed the bruises were from him. 

Apparently there was a video of her fighting the other woman that never went public. 

She said she wanted to hurt him.. now she's making money doing interviews... 

Oh and she also went to jail previously for falsly accusing another male before she started dating Ruben. 

Why should anyone believe anything she says when she is constantly changing her story?? 

saying "I lied about lying" doesn't make me believe that this current story is the truth

To be fair we’ve seen women lie to protect their spouse. Foster is a millionaire who could potentially use the best lawyers money could buy, she’d deal with tons of scrutiny and harassment for fans

She's a woman so no one can see this side of things.

Its crazy how easy it is to be vilified in the court of public opinion these days.

I keep repeating this because people don't seem to understand:

She went to jail for falsely accusing an ex-boyfriend of domestic violence, BEFORE she started dating Ruben Foster. How often does that happen? It has to be 1/100 of reported DM cases
