The NFL's Greed

I thought this was hilarious

I suggest we start crowdfunding a horrible high school cover band that is currently 'between' bass players 

to win the bid

It's the NFL - did you really expect anything less? It's only a bad idea if it doesn't work.

Why not? If you can guarantee that sort of national and international scope and exposure you'd have to ask yourself, if I am a band and I want to sell a new CD, record download or tour PR, how much would it cost for a fifteen minute ad? Probably 20 million dollars.

No way Jimmy Page pays them so we will not see Led Zeppelin at the halftime of the Ravens Super Bowl in January.  I would think a record company like Atlantic Records would put up the coin?  Gosh its been years since I went in a music store and I couldn't tell you if there are music stores these days?

This is the NFL realizing (even more so) that what they have as a product (in this case, the 30 minutes between the first and second half of the Super Bowl) is worth money.  I see nothing wrong with them asking for artists to pay them for what amounts to a captive audience for 15 minutes on the biggest TV stage in the United States.  However, if the artists all come back and shove it in the NFL's face, so be it.

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!!!

Re: The NFL's Greed 


what will be interesting, if a band/artist PAYS for the time, does that give them all the power to say/do what they want?

From what I am reading they are getting seriius blow back. Keep in mind they also tripled the price of the SB and flat out admitted they were price gauging. I won't even start the debate over the less then suitable brain injury settlement, psl's, and forcing fans to pay for 4 pre season games when even Goodell admidts the product is inferior.

Don't watch Super Bowl halftime..  Pretty much a waste of air time.
I spend that time restocking the bar, eating and BS'ing with my guests.

 hardly anybody watches that show, except maybe the kiddies.

However, if somebody spend $4million to hawk Doritos for 30 seconds,  why not have some stupid singer pay up for the face time as well.

The Halftime show is nothing more than the soundtrack  to my mid-game dump anyway.
