Press Release

Well the NLL is going to be charging for games. Cannot really be surprised by this, as the commissioner mentioned this in interviews. Even previous league surveys pointed towards a pay model.

Now lets take a look at the two options shall we.

  1. 34.95 for all season pass. Afforadable check. However, we see no mention for about playoffs.
  2. 29.95 team pass. Why? Pay five dollars more and get all league games. Probably would of made the team pass cheaper.

Is the on floor product worth 34.95 for the entire season? Probably not as eighteen games are just too long. The game themselves tend to lack excitement. We think the league might be shooting themselves in both feet, with this pay model. As a new fan, why would you pay for something that you might not like? As for the old fans going back to the MILL era. Yeah, they might be saying Screw you NLL. I know we are.

 

Are we surprised by this move? Nope, not at all. Rabil, is not a very good indoor player to begin with. As his bread and butter is MLL. Let’s hope future US expansion teams (Dallas and Philadelphia….Maybe) are not dumb enough to give this player the time of day.

In recent months, the e-commerce giant has been in talks for live game rights with heavy-hitters like the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball and the National Football League, as well as smaller players like Major League Soccer, the Atlantic Coast Conference, college sports network Campus Insiders, 120 Sports, National Lacrosse League, Major League Lacrosse and World Surf League, the people said.

 

With at least some leagues, including the NBA, Amazon has floated creating a premium, exclusive sports package that would accompany a Prime membership, though the details are unclear, the people said. A premium sports package could entice new subscribers to Prime and to Amazon’s potential “skinny bundle” of live channels online.
