Sunday Ticket Trial


Recommended Posts

It's the slow time and thought I'd post this. NFL lost the trial but they will appeal. I'm going to put off ordering til tghe end of July probably just to see if anything changes. I've had it since ~2008 so I'm all in if the verdict stands.

With the triple damages, even after the lawyers cut, the NFL will lose every penny it ever made from DTV. That's assuming the verdict isn't overturned or a settlement for a smaller amount isn't agreed to. But if the NFL fights it out and loses, you might be in line for a full refund of everything you paid over the years. But that will be years away if ever.

Interesting:

 

How would the NFL pay damages?

It would be spread equally among the 32 teams. That means each one could be paying as much as $449.6 million.

Since this was a federal court action, the plaintiff attorneys would have a right for their fees independent of the plaintiff damage award. These will be staggering in their own right, besides the judgement

If the NFL loses they will probably jack up the price for Sunday Ticket. :laugh:

 

Seriously, just let me buy per game or by team.

 

Just wait till you have to get every single streaming service to watch all the games.

 

Can wait till I watch the Bengals on Fubo TV

I've had Sunday Ticket since 1999.

So once the lawyers finish with everything, I'm gonna clear around $6.50. Whew! Can't wait. 

 

Disbursement of funds is probably at least 3 years away, assuming the verdict holds up. But you should be in line for thousands of dollars.

Like I said above, the lawyers have a separate fee claim from the judgement. As Sparky says, the claimants will have full access to the  award. 
 

But remember: you have to make yourself known to the court as part of the class action. Many courts require notification to prospective claimants of their rights of recovery; however never rely on that totally—and never join from those mail (and now TV) advertisements sent out. Those are all from law offices, and they absolutely will take their cuts from your award.

Florio predicted that some people could get as much as $5,000 ... that is if it ever survives all of its appeals. 

 

Flagship American sports media brand worth billions, in our court system? Not fuckin likely. The subscribers might owe extra by the time it's resolved.
