It would be awesome if they broke it down like:

$100 - One team only
$200 - Teams in your division of choice
$450 - All of the NFL, not region locked
That would be ideal... I said 75 bucks...but that's because I'm a tightass...I'd pay 100...just wouldn't be thrilled with it

because in Cali the labor board rarely steps in.

Interesting. This has not been my experience at all.

The wage/hour environment in CA is tough and their agencies are also stringent - very difficult state when it comes to employment practices coverage

From my understanding those were 2 items working against the NFL.

Limiting it to a rights package for a single provider vs other domestic leagues that offer their package through everywhere then fee/license based on the number of subscribers

Then the all or nothing nature of the package

I too would love a limited option - could help them with sharing as well

It just sucks beyond words that the NFL charges 450 bucks for this when the NBA let’s fans pay 100 bucks for access to one individual team as part of their League Pass. I would absolutely buy it for 100 bucks just for the Cardinals.
Hell, I pay that much to watch the game replays. The condensed replays are rad.

I called Sacramento 3 times on my employer. All 3 times the labor board/commission advised me to get my own attorney and go to court... said it would be about two years before they could even assign someone to look into my claims

I rarely get the chance to watch during game time myself. No other Cards fans anywhere around either.
I probably could watch the games live more often than not, but I get to skip over an hour of commercials and half time if I don't want to watch the recap if I don't.

Yeah, I'm pretty much always on a delay.

Growing up when it was cold and snowy in a small town, firing up a couple of games with a pot of chill or some sausage & peppers was a nice way to spend the day.

Now there is almost zero chance I'm around and available during game time

because in Cali the labor board rarely steps in. they tell you to get a lawyer and sue. then the suit goes class action, and the employees get screwed.
I'm in Cali and have gotten paid twice, from 2 class actions against 2 employers. Didn't get screwed at all.

If you have a case, labor attorneys rarely ask for money up front. When they sue, they make sure their fee is including the amount and you're still made whole.

Federal is the way to go.

I have subscribed to ST for over 20 years. Tell me where to sign up for my .90 cent refund!!!

It would be awesome if they broke it down like:

$100 - One team only
$200 - Teams in your division of choice
$450 - All of the NFL, not region locked
ABSOLUTELY!!! Add the Redzone to those bundles and I would take it immediately.

My guess the NFL would want to establish tiered pricing structure allowing individual teams to select the tier they want to sell in. Thus your teams with bigger fan bases or more demand could subscribe at a higher rate.

Packaging multiple teams by region, conference or division could be offered.

Lots of potential for the NFL to make even more money…

I've read two different articles recently that suggested not to be surprised if it ends up you can get it for about $100 this year, streaming only without the other package requirement. the NFL is getting hammered over this, in part because it came out ESPN wanted to do a one team 70 dollars a year package and the NFL said no. So the thinking is the NFL may cave and make that 100 a year for one team and then have to hope they get more subscriptions to make up some of the money because their existing contract with Youtube will be impacted.

So nothing concrete but sounds like we MAY get a benefit from the lawsuit THIS year.

Does that mean you’d still have to subscribe to YouTube also?
