    That's too bad. NFL Films is one of those NFL-unique things that makes the game great.

    Not surprising news, this had to be expected after HBO canceled Inside the NFL. What was interesting to me is that they mentioned the NFL Network and their struggles. Makes me think they may cave in with a lower price for Comcast and Time Warner just to raise the number of potential viewers. Seems like they would be better off getting the NFLN out to everybody, get them used to watching on a regular basis, and then try to raise the rates.

    I guess I'm a little slow, because I knew it was happening, but why did HBO cancel ISTNFL?

    I hope they do cave. No one should have to pay for that poor production. Cable Companies might be greedy, but it is quite obvious that the NFL is as well.

    Well-- with alot of extra film crew hitting the market, is there any chance the Pats will sign any of them? Might be some big FA videographer pickups there!

    I'm soooooo sorry for this joke. I shouldn't even make it. Sorry gang.
