    NFL announces new punishments for games that are PPD for covid next season

    Advertises might, sure. But the NFL just signed a new long term deal with networks in March, so I don't think the fear of covid cancellations was weighing too heavily: https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-announces-new-broadcast-deals-running-through-2033-season I haven't seen anything about clawbacks...

    NFL announces new punishments for games that are PPD for covid next season

    Is the NFL forcing the forfeit teams to also forfeit their share of the TV money? I always thought it was a league-wide deal, so presumably teams will continue to get TV money even if they weren't playing.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Same here. I weathered the price hikes and loss of NESN, but we have 3 TVs running rokus, two of which are the TCLs with it built in, so this would be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me. After the NESN stuff, I'm basically sticking with it for ease-of-use more than content anyway...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I got it... that might be a deal breaker for me when hockey comes back. Hopefully they can get something resolved before then.

    ZOOM? or Google Hangouts or ?

    Starting zoom school today, and an issue that we had ignored in the spring is a problem again-- my daughter uses zoom on an ipad, with the front facing camera, but it mirrors the video, so that when she writes something and holds it up, it all looks backwards. Is there a way either in zoom or...

    Jaylen Brown re-signs for 4 years/$115 million

    I could be doing this wrong, but as far as I can tell they had $117m committed for next season even if Brown disappeared (though Hayward opting out may change this, but probably not in a good way). So it's not like they could have spent that 29m on someone else, since they'd be over the cap...

    The problem is that a lot of THIS year's salary is already spread into next year. (edit: I think...)

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    There may be a national version of NESN available, but you need to have your region tagged to New England to get sporting events. There's a few more nuances, though-- for all local channels, including NESN/CSNNE (and bruins/celtics/pats games) you need a login from your home area every 3 months...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    As far as I can tell, it depends on the device. I have mine set up with my home area tagged as VT, and when I watch on my Roku (which doesn't geolocate) from Pittsburgh, I get local VT channels (including Sox, Pats, etc, as long as I've logged in from VT in the last 1-3 months). When I watch...

    2019 Pats: Roster Projection 1.0

    Detroit after Savage went down would seem like an ideal landing spot for Hoyer (between Patricia's familiarity with him and having just had an up-close view), but they signed Josh Johnson instead. Which may be an indication the Pats aren't ready to make Stidham their #2 just yet (or just that...

    Moving from iPhone to Android

    All those things (other than overcast) will work just fine, and almost identically as before. The biggest differences are ecosystem changes-- if you use iMessage outside of the phone messaging system, you'll lose that (android has a web interface now, but it's a little iffy), and existing text...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Wait... so... if you finish 5th or 6th in the hex, you're out entirely? There are 35 concacaf nations, right? So 29 in the group tourney are the non-hex nations, battling for a chance to play the #4 team. That seems so crazy to me that it seems like it must be wrong... why not allow the 5/6...
