    I only watch American Dad and I can stream that on Netflix. Good riddance. No more NFL for you.

    This one of the few times I have to completely agree with ETM's assessment of things. This guy sounds like he's being a baby.

    Um ok. They would sink so bad so fast. Their shows aren't that great anymore. I don't even think they would be missed. NBC is probably cheering them on to become a pay for channel.

    Them losing the NFL would be a pretty big hit. This is like watching a kid hold its breath. The NFL will give them a good slap. I would like to see them try it and fail spectacularly tho.

    Bwahaha CBS and ABC? Yeah, cause college basketball, the NBA, MLB, and thr NFL are all going to say "ok then" when the networks tell them they lost half their viewers for this stupidity. They will rip them a new *******. I will gladly drop all of these networks. Bring it on!

    One thing is for damn sure, piracy is going to go through the roof, and advertisers are going to be pissed.

    Edit: perhaps I am underestimating middle aged women and their love of reality tv. They would prolly pay just to know who got voted off american vocal top star dancer island.

    I'd just get the MLB packages and NFL packages from those respective Cable Networks to spite them.

    Yeah, aside from losing the sports, they'd also have to seriously raise the quality of their scripted programming if they're gonna throw their hats into the same arena as the cable networks. Cuz right now, the only thing giving their shows the advantage with the ratings is the fact that they're free.
