Well it did take a pandemic for league revenue to drop.  Do we really think the total revenue of the next TV deal will be less then the last one?

Actually, I hope your potential forecast about the NFL is right.  I would expect Goodell to resign after this next TV deal is done.  Hopefully, a new voice will change some of the direction of the sport.

I agree the owners don’t care about the quality of product and often act against their own long term interest to serve short term interests (usually greed).  
 

But this next set of TV deals isn’t going to bring in less money - it’s going to be a significant increase overall after next year’s deals are re-done, for 2 reasons: 

1.   The NFL just demonstrated that no matter what - the show will go on.   TV execs don’t need to worry about losing games and filling air time.   The NFL just showed their product is the safest property to acquire - not just sports but vs. regular TV entertainment programming. 
 

2.   The DirectTV Sunday ticket package was woefully undervalued with the explosion of online streaming / other non-network platforms.    The NFL probably can sell a streaming option for out-of-market games for a fair bit of coin that’s basically new revenue.  
 

Now it’s really doubtful networks are doubling the income - that’s insane.  But an overall 20-30 percent increase isn’t difficult to project.   And I’m probably being conservative.   Guess we’ll see by next year.
