This is why I am so curious to see how the AAFL streaming will do. TV contracts make up such a large amount of pro-sports profits, but more and more of the end consumers are getting fed-up with the way "big cable" is "cornhole-ing" them. I have spoken with many "younger" guys and gals and they have absolutily zero interest in cable TV. IF they want to watch sports they stream it (pretty well exclusively for free) or they don't watch it.

Hard to say what percentage of the demographic that is, but currently it not the majority the CFL is trying to attract and won't be for at least a few more years.  Is it the future or just representative of a fringe group of viewers?  Maybe....many of these "kids" grow up and the majority of them tend to "buy in" to societal norms eventually just because it is easier and more convenient to do so. 

The other angle to consider is what common steps will corporations take to protect their content from being used, shared or viewed for free?  In the early days of the Internet sharing software and music with others was almost the norm, now days it's probably still possible but not all that convenient or legal to do so.  Just throwing the term "illegal activity" at people in our society tends to make the majority jump into line pretty quickly, even if the laws have no teeth with which to bite.

Lol not at the time of his arrest.

What does that have to do with him being a good person or not?

Well, they more than made up for it with a slaughter yesterday! TD Jets!

Hellebuyck stood tall in the first and never looked back. Morrissey had a great game.

So from what I read by 2026 they plan to be at 16 teams. I like the idea but my bf isn?t very hopeful because it?s the left overs that can?t make MLS or go to Europe. He figures quality will be poor. I?m not sure if that?s going to bring thousands of fans into the stands. Wade Miller expects up to 9,000 per game. Realistically what do you figure will be the average attendance? My bf figures 5k.

Watched him play....he was a steady performer.  Not flashy but he was reliable and got the job done.  Played on a very good football team!   RIP Stormin' Norman!!

ESPN had me over a barrel so I finally had to pay for their ESPN+ streaming service, which is only $5 per month, but they made me mad. Last year you had to stream the games but you could stream them free on ESPN3, no big deal. Well this year the move the CFL over to their pay platform. I already pay for ESPN programming through Directv so, I had to pony up more money. They are now providing me with some new and exciting coverage on my Directv account, such as, Spikeball and Thursday night they had college cornhole championship...

If you haven't seen Spikeball you're in for a real treat... it looks like a game my brother and I would have made up when we were 10 out in the back yard... and cornhole? seriously? so not a sport and the name alone should have it banned from public television...

they can shuffle off good programming, programming that is actually something a sports fan would like to watch onto their new pay platform and give me spikeball and cornhole on their product I can't drop... but what can you do?
