Would you rather have the NFL have all teams sponsored by someone with a prominent Company Logo on their jersey, which would mean no more commercials during football games, except for Halftime and the 2 minute warnings or keep it the way it is now, no company logos and full of commercials?

Poll to follow.

I would go with the advertising on jerseys with no commercials.

Nothing more lame than having that nervous excitement turn into nervousness over a 3 minute commercial break.

As long as they kept the advertising on the jersey and not on the field, hell yes.

Well they might do the wall advertising around the field like they do in soccer or hockey. Companies would probably have to pay a shit load and would want their logo on TV as much as possible.

Okay another thing, think of a local big company that would be the sponsor for every team.

Kansas City would have to be Sprint, right?

San Diego would be Qualcomm.

Denver would be Corona Insights

I've noticed soccer games with logos painted on the field in a way that made them appear as if they were on your TV screen, and they were distracting as hell. So none of that.

Nothing would be more American than having corporate sponsorship on jerseys. I fyou vote against logos then you are voting for Socialism.

No... they would have to incorporate a feminine product of some sort.

Anyways, if they kept the commercials and added the logos, then that would be cause for disappointment.

I think its a fair trade off.

No it wouldn't. For one the tv stations wouldn't get the money to air the game. All jersey logo money would be for the team only. So you wouldn't be watching it on tv, thus no one would buy the sponsorship to put it on the jersey.

Heh, I was thinking that the Chiefs would have that market cornered. They'd just hang a long string out of the back of their pants. Home games would be for "heavy flow" and away games for "spotting."

No they wouldn't. Who says you get to make the rules?

It would all be strictly monitored by the NFL. They would come up with similar advertising costs for the companies, and distribute it evenly so each TV station would not lose any profit.

Doesn't seem like it a stretch to me.

They will never eliminate commercials.

If you get advertising on uniforms it will be just an additional way to bring in revenue, along with the same number of commercials.

So there is no choice here.

You would have to find 32 companies that wanted to pay around 62.5 million each just to make up for the NFL tv's contract. Nobody is putting a ****ing logo on a jersey for that.

The problem is they won't pick one - they'll do both. It's just a matter of time.

There is no end to the pure, sick greed of the NFL. I'm one of the chumps who pays $300+ a year to watch programming that's already half commercials. HALF. Why do they do it? Because we let them.

They'll do both, PLUS eventually end up putting football on all of the pay channels like all of the Fox Sports, ESPN's, and NFLN.

No.

The NFL knows that the bread and butter comes from the fact that they continue to draw in new fans with their Network affiliations.

They'll just continue to get a shit ton of money from the Networks.

I like how the soccer clock never stops so it prevents commercials the air time. I don't mind product placement on the field, I'm not paying attention to that crap.

Extra point

kickoff

run a play
2 minute warning

That is 30 seconds of game play over a 10 minute period all for advertisements.

AAARGHHHH!!!!

Add instant replay to that list. I'm sure the Networks had their lobbyists help "persuade" (cough... payoff) the NFL to institute it. :drool: More commercial time!

This. They would never eliminate a revenue stream. They will gladly add more, however. I sure hope it doesn't happen.

As far as the hypothetical, though, I voted to keep commercials. I like the breaks so I can grab a beer or discuss a play that just happened, etc. Only late in the game am I ever impatient about getting back to the action. There are natural breaks in the game anyway. A commercial is about as good as hearing the announcers trying to fill.
