Was listening to Dan Patrick on ESPN radio talk about the NFL getting bad PR because of this...I mean, seriously?  Is the NFL being friggin' serious? 

Talk about greedy.

I guess my 60" means I cant watch Football anymore.........



Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.

What an absolutely idiotic thing for the NFL to do.

Anybody catch the piece on Real Sports about retired players???

It really is the No Fun League

Excuse me for posting the obvious....

Why should a church get a free ride???

Because it's 'the house of god'?

It's against broadcasting rules... churches get plenty of freedom to get away with everything else, good for the NFL. And shame on the church for thinking that they get to make their own rules.

It is just a house party thrown in the house of God.  That is all it is.  Hell, I have been to house parties that have a door fee (unless you BYOB), had three sets going, and it was never a big deal.  Until now.  And now, it is a big deal because we can all laugh about it...

Until the men in the black suits come knockin', asking us how many sets and how many people are watching the game...and how big the set is...

Nazi indeed.

i'm not a lawyer, but i'm pretty sure the sports bar is legally allowed to broadcast the games, i'm not sure if they have to pay extra or not.

churches have PLENTY of money if they really wanna broadcast the game. thought sunday was the sacred day of talking to imaginary people anyway, since when are they allowed to watch football....

what next...rational thinking?

I know my buddy owns a local bar that I frequent, and he has a ton of sets going, the NFL package...but I don't think he pays to broadcast the games...

I'll find out.  Gonna call him.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league's long-standing policy is to ban "mass out-of-home viewing" of the Super Bowl. An exception is made for sports bars and other businesses that show televised sports as a part of their everyday operations.

I'm more on the side with Boid on this one...to me though it's not the church part that bothers me it's that people that don't want to be in a bar environment and gather to watch the game can't on anything larger then 55".  If the church or a group of people got together with a bunch of smaller TV's would the NFL go after them too?

They don't say Super Bowl here on the radio because they aren't allowed. Talk about stupid.
