Yeah, 110% agree. What the heck else does NFLN have to put on during the offseason? Why not air one team per a night? These are a lot better than some list that is usually a joke. I think they put way too much into the top 100.
So have they aired the yearbook yet before today? If so maybe someone has it up online.
Dude, I used to work at NFLN, and I have no idea why they don't do anything with the yearbooks. That was kind of my stance when I worked there... THEY NEED MORE CONTENT AND PROGRAMMING!!!
But the NFLN is still growing and getting its feet set, so in the future they might make the yearbooks a thing. TOP 100 is only in its second year, and apparently the ratings are good because they promoted the crap out of it.
The most interesting TV-business-thing I learned while at NFLN was that NFL REPLAY is usually the highest rated program on the Network. I still don't understand it, aside from the fact that people without the Sunday Ticket can watch the games they missed. But game highlights are so ubiquitous now, I don't get people that actually sit down and watch 90-minutes of NFL Replay at a time.
