It reduces the games available to me on Sunday. It causes a requirement for my fantasy team to submit my roster by Thursday evening instead of Sunday morning. It is time I have previously allotted to other activities. And of course it DOES in fact increase our costs. You don't think the NFL Network is distributing their programming to cable and satellite outlets for free do you?
