I lost all respect, well whatever I had of him now. He will do this, and sell the Sunday Ticket, EXCLUSIVE to Google, which will in turn make it online only. I dont give 2 s**ts if Online is the future, I want my ST on TV, not on my laptop. Rather watch on my 37 inch TV over a 16 inch Laptop. Plus Buffering sucks.
I would encourage sending displeasure to goodell's @!nflcommish, I have, not like he responds. But still if people say they will go against buying it for online only, he may have no choice but give it to all TV and Internet providers. Like it should be. MLB, NBA, NHL is, why cant NFL?
My fear is Google will overprice the ST, right now it's 249.00 for basic, and I think an extra 85 for Online/RedZone add on. I can imagine NFL and Google will want a higher price tag. What he(Goodell) needs to remember is, internet costs a lot for good service, so it isnt choppy as s**t. Plus a laptop or dektop, with at least 2.2GHz processor, at least 4 GB RAM, and a decent video card(Even my 900.00 laptop had problems with NFL Preseason Live, and I have a 2.7GHz processor, 6GB RAM, and 2 GB Dedicated video card inside my laptop, s**t was choppy as hell). They can cost between 450 and in the thousands.
Plus if you want to watch it via HDMI, while the cables aren't expensive, but what about if a person is still on a SDTV, thats anywhere from 250-4000 for a HDTV. If HD(Full 1080p) you will spend a good amount. This may not all go into Goodell and Google's pockets, but it takes from ours. And thats what Goodell wants. He makes millions off of fans, between Merchandise, tickets, NFL ST, he makes so much off of us. And he in return, doesn't give 2 s**ts about us as fans.
F*CK GOODELL. And I will not spend over 300 for online, if he thinks fans will spend the price for Max on DirecTV(which has everything, HD, 8 games, RZC, Online, etc...) for just Online, then he is f**king crazy.
