Congressman demands the NFL stop putting playoff games on streaming services like NBC's Peacock: Fans don't deserve 'to be squeezed even further by greedy corporations'

Rep. Pat Ryan, a New York Democrat, is fed up with the NFL and NBC Sports over the decision to nationally air one of the league's six first-round playoff games exclusively on NBC's streaming platform Peacock.

"It is absolutely ridiculous that my constituents, who already pay for NBC, have to pay even more to watch this game," Ryan wrote in a letter to top NFL and NBC officials. "How much more profit do Roger Goodell and NBC need to make at the expense of hard working Americans before they are satisfied? I'm demanding the NFL and NBC stop the BS and offer fans the service they already pay for, or we're coming for your antitrust exemption."

Ryan, who has been outspoken about the issue in the past, wrote to the NFL's commissioner, Roger Goodell, and NBC Sports' president, Rick Cordella, to express his displeasure.

"Fans already face exorbitant prices to watch every game during the regular season; they don't deserve to be squeezed even further by greedy corporations," Ryan added. "This bait-and-switch is particularly egregious for consumers who already pay for NBC as part of their cable package."
An apparent start of a shift in how games are aired that irks viewers

NBC's decision is historic as it marks the first time that the nation's most popular professional sports league is set to essentially paywall a playoff game.

The Saturday matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs, the defending Super Bowl champs, and the Miami Dolphins is also set to feature one of the NFL's most valuable stars in the Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who's looking for a third title. The Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who started his career in Kansas City, is set to return to Kansas City as one of the league's most electric offenses seeks the franchise's first playoff victory since 2000.

In response to Ryan, the NFL pointed out that the game would be available over the air on NBC affiliates in Kansas City and Miami.

The league added that all the remaining playoff games would be available over the air nationwide, as well as on other platforms. But the league defended the decision for this weekend, saying it's "consistent" with the NFL's long policy of creating "as many ways as possible to meet our fans where they spend their time."

"We understand that in the first few years of moving some games exclusively to digital platforms our viewership will likely not reach broadcast levels, but just as the NFL on ESPN grew into a huge platform following its debut in 1987 when cable was relatively young, we are confident these moves will be a tremendous success," Alex Riethmiller, the NFL's vice president of communications, said in a statement to Business Insider.

I’m on the warmer side of the East Coast. We’re getting rain. They’re gonna get a ton of snow.. as Buffalo always does, the governor of New York said the resources used for traffic and enforcement during a football game of this magnitude. Be put to dealing with any snow emergencies. Traffic accidents. Gives them time to clear all the roads,, without thousands of cars coming to in front of football game

It has warmed up here today in the Portland Metro Area & I was able to visit a library to get our Pick the Winners thread up. Any N.F.L. head coaching firings that you are in favour which happened this month? 1 that did not happen is Mike McCarthy getting fired by the Cowboys & some are not thrilled about that. I am not a Cowboys hater & it does not worry me much either way, but I know a lot of people care about that team.
