One thing this deal needed but is lacking is the reverse mirror to allow additional CBS and Fox Sunday afternoon games to be distributed to local markets via sister cable networks. There are too many markets with fanbases for multiple teams in which at least one of them gets screwed every week. Like in Duluth-Superior, whenever the Vikings and Packers games conflict, the Vikings game always airs.

I’d guess whatever replaces the Sunday ticket likely addresses that, at least from the league’s perspective.   NFL won’t pass up a chance to gauge more $.

The reverse mirror would give fans of teams poorly performing in a given the option to watch a more compelling NFL game if they so chose, without the need for Sunday Ticket. It would also require eliminating the no opposing games rule.

Furthermore, the NFL should adopt college OT rules soon, because if a primetime game goes into multiple OTs under the college OT rules, it would get more people to tune into the game after it goes into OT, increasing its ratings, and making such a game one of the greatest in NFL history.

Gotta disagree.   There is nothing more annoying than having your friends over to watch the second Sunday game and the Bengals Jets goes into OT. Now imagine if it had college OT rules.

it's the OT rules that have made many college games of the past 25 years great

furthermore, in some markets games not involving local teams are not always shown to conclusion in order to get the start of the local team's game, conversely, if the local team is airing early, the conclusion of that game preempts the start of the next

you appear to live in Texas, thus, CBS and Fox affiliates put the Cowboys ahead of every other team if that team is on their network in a given week, and thus, the Cowboys game either starts airing on time pre-empting the end of the first game, or the end of the Cowboys game pre-empts the start of the second game

Or just have it as it's own streaming package 

I would gauge that if this is the case, people should be able to purchase single games or the entire season of just one team a la carte. These would come at a smaller price compared to having every game at your disposal.

For example, people in Harrisburg PA can purchase Steelers games a la carte that are in conflict with Ravens road games on the same network (which are required to air in that market).

Or you are a Packers fan living in Duluth-Superior, but the local Fox station is showing the Vikings instead.

Similarly, this would make all Browns and Steelers games available to their fans in Youngstown at an affordable price.

Of course I could still see the reverse mirror implemented in the playoffs in case of expansion to 16 teams, which would designate the 1 PM slots on wild card weekend as regional slots, but in each market, one game would air on CBS or Fox and the other on a sister cable network, keeping all NFL playoff games on national television.

Why was Monday night playoffs even brought up? Is a Saturday noon game really that bad? Plus the winner of that game would always be at a disadvantage with one less day of rest. Why the **** were the big wigs even thinking about this scenario?

3.  If you're a great player and in your prime, you probably want to wait to negotiate until next offseason for your 2022+ income.

Every player who was franchised this year has to be super nervous.

Because $billions aren't enough and if they thought it would make more money they would completely destroy the competitive nature of Football and turn it into a reality TV show.

Ugh. Eventually the NFL is going to hurt itself by making it so difficult to watch all of these games. Goodell is full of ****, this doesn't give fans more options, it forces fans that want to watch every game to subscribe to a ton of different platforms. 

They still don't have streaming figured out. Why is that so hard? Seems like there should be a ton of money there, since that's what a ton of people do these days.

The NFL is going to simply just say if you want that choice, take the streaming / Sunday ticket replacement option.    They won't do anything more, given that the TV $ is in the bank.
