"Monday, the NFL's director of corporate communications, Brian McCarthy, confirmed that 'we recently asked the site to remove more than 3,000 clips featuring NFL game footage. The site complied.'"

No Fun League, indeed.  If you ever wanted to grab a favorite Bucs clip, better go look now to see if it's still there.

Yeah, that happened a few weeks ago. The NFL tries very hard to make sure no one can see any NFL footage unless they control it. Look at how hard they're pushing NFL network, and now they're going to start showing games. I wouldn't be surprised that if in the future the NFL is off network TV and we're forced to get extra pay channels just to watch a damn game.

You're right on that but unfortunately Zen is on the money. Think about how much money they can make by having this incredible product only available on their network, which you'd have to pay for. Along with advertising it would be astronomical the amount of money they could make. It will happen. It's only going to increase, they have a few games now it'll increase year by year. They own this product and can do whatever they want.

Also think about all the DVR's and Tivos' out there. Do you think advertisers are happy about paying gobs of money to be ignored? I bet that we will come to a time where you'll pay for each show, say $.80/ show to watch, because advertisers will find other outlet's to get the word out about their product.

Unfortunately Zen is right on about this. There has been talk -- mostly just under the surface but getting more play -- in the past few years about a "pay per game" type of system. That way, if you want to watch the Bucs game, you pay X amount and you can select that game on whatever channel they dedicate to it. Same with other games. It's coming sooner than we think probably.

YouTube have been taking clips down for the last few weeks after a successful law suit in Japan.  There is no conspiracy with the NFL having their clips removed, they are just one of the many companies that are simply enforcing copyright.

That is funny, because I was listening to the Dan Patrick show, and he was sasying he went to youtube to find footage of the Jerramy Stevens nut-jab incident in the Raiders game, and I started thinking that it will be any second the NFL has those clips removed.

What timing.

...and also an example of them being A-holes.
