There have been two NFL games recently, Dallas vs Atlanta (Saturday) and Seattle vs San Fran. (Thurs). Neither game was televised on CBS, Fox, or
ESPN, at least in my area. They were available on a subscription cable package, tho.
It seems to me that in the past, these games would have been televised without having to pay to see them.
Taking the ball into your own end zone, and being either tackled, or forced out of bounds results in a "Safety" and the opposing team is awarded two
points, and you have to kick (punt or kickoff) to the scoring team. This is the only time that the team scoring points have to give the ball back to
the scoring team. If the ball is received in the end zone on a kick (punt or kickoff), intercepted, or is a defensive fumble recovery, the ball can be
"downed" and you will start an offensive set of downs from your 20 yard line.
Well, something that bothers me even more than what you mention OP, is that theNFL has limited the number of cameras that can be present at a game.
This is not only going to affect the angles we are able to see the game from, but also as to whether the games will be televised at all. :shk:
The NFLN was started by the NFL after the 32 NFL owners unanimously approved it's formation in 2003. It's a money-making scheme, no doubt. But it is
currently under investigation by the US congress to determine if it violates any FCC regulations.
