You think that an all-star game wouldn’t draw that many people to watch.
However, in the National Football League that isn’t the case as the league is just a ratings monster.
According to Fox Sports, via Pro Football Talk, the Pro Bowl got a 8.6 rating Sunday night. It doesn’t matter if the the two worst teams in the NFL are playing all that matters is that a National Football League game is on.
Just imagine how much more money the NFL will be able to get from network television stations for an extra two regular season games. We’re not just talking about millions of dollars, but hundreds of millions of dollars.
The thing that surprises me though is that the NFL hasn’t taken advantage of all the different camera angles that network stations have to broadcast games. What I mean is that the NFL hasn’t come up with some sort of package that allows fans to switch the camera angle of the game that they are watching for an extra price.
In the end, sooner or later there will be all sorts of different options available for games on the television that we could never have fathomed of right now.
