NFL loses Sunday Ticket Lawsuit

https://sports.yahoo.com/nfl-loses-s...225928049.html



NFL loses 'Sunday Ticket' trial, ordered to pay $4 billion by federal jury
With antitrust law, the damages could increase to $12 billion


The NFL has been ordered to pay $4.7 billion in residential class damages and $96 million in commercial class damages by a federal jury in a class action lawsuit filed against the league by subscribers to "NFL Sunday Ticket." The verdict was first reported by journalist Meghann Cuniff.

The lawsuit argued that the NFL, its teams and its network partners (DirecTV, CBS, ESPN and Fox) violated antitrust rules by working together to limit competition and sell the out-of-market TV package at an inflated price.

It will be interesting to see how appeal court handles it. Hopefully this is a first crack that will force NFL owners to reconsider how they distribute the games.

Re: NFL loses Sunday Ticket Lawsuit

Good. Greedy bastards. I subscribed to NFL Ticket when we moved from MD years ago but wasn’t long before we cancelled because of exorbitant cost and Snyder wrecking our team. That said, if we become competitive again I may be willing to pay up again to watch.

I think the dates included in the suit start in 2012.

you will get a check for a dollar and a coupon for 20% off your next fanatics order (which has already been marked up 30% more then retail)

Re: NFL loses Sunday Ticket Lawsuit

I bet it still ends up being something substantial and not your run of the mill class action settlement

Re: NFL loses Sunday Ticket Lawsuit

I am still blown away that the NFL and it's lawyers somehow lost this case. So basically they lost because they only allowed Directv to sell the product and no other outlets?? You would have thought they had some verbiage somewhere that they got by with that from the beginning. Don't we have an attorney in this group? I'd love to hear their opinion.

I believe the issue is they colluded with their partners to limit competition and worked with DTV to inflate the price, as it states in the OP.

Re: NFL loses Sunday Ticket Lawsuit

NFL should be sued as well for giving EA exclusive rights as well

Apparently NCAA 2025 is the bomb
