goodbye free NFL games


The US government, looking for something to do, has struck at website that broadcast free NFL, MLB, NBA, etc... sporting events. The most well known are the firstrowsports sites, which the US govt has gone after.

This is my favorite line from the article:

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara warned sports fans in a release that piracy costs sports leagues and broadcasters millions of dollars, forcing increases in ticket prices and other costs to consumers.

.

By their reasoning, fans watching games for free forces ticket prices to rise. So now that these sites are shut down, the tickets prices will drop, right? Ha ha! I'm looking forward to the day that the NFL, NBA & MBL cut ticket prices across the board in response to these sites being shut down.

.

Also they say these sites that show games for FREE force costs to consumers. I'm not sure how the consumers have costs forced on them by a free site, when the whole point of a free site is that the consumers do NOT have any costs (that the NFL wants to charge them).
