NFL is finally doing something right – The NBA is finally coming around
The NFL is the best in the world, but it’s not a monopoly.
A few years ago, a team named the Detroit Lions made an impressive run to the Super Bowl.
The team won the Superbowl.
But now, the league is trying to do something about its declining popularity.
ESPN recently did an article titled “NFL teams should take their lumps”, which featured a quote from commissioner Roger Goodell, who said that if the league can’t get back to being the best, “then maybe we should just do it ourselves.”
Goodell’s statement has now been endorsed by the NFL, which announced today that it will be putting in place a new rule that would require teams to play at least one regular season game per year, or else.
“In the long term, if we don’t have a regular season schedule that provides the opportunity for our players to play, it’s going to be a difficult, expensive, time consuming process to get us to a point where we’re competitive again,” NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent said in a statement.
The league also announced that it has also hired a sports economist to help with its transition to a regular schedule, which is expected to cost the league about $60 million annually.
The rule is expected as early as next year, but the league will need a lot of input from its fans to make it happen.
There are a lot more things we need to do in the next three years than just get to the playoffs, Commissioner Roger Goodell says.
But the league has made it clear that it wants to be the most valuable sports league in the country.
That’s why the NFL is also investing in an automated analytics system that will allow it to analyze all the data it gathers and improve its marketing strategy.
The move to automate analytics is part of a broader push by the league to make sure that it is the only league that can afford to invest in data.
Last year, the NFL made a similar investment in an analytics system called Opta, which analyzes player movement to determine how a player is moving and how that can help a team in its run to a Super Bowl title.
That technology is still in its infancy, but is expected be ready for use by 2019.
