      ***** Is this "Good news - Bad news", due to the picture of
      the future it creates?

      24/7, year-round NFL Channel! Woo Hoo!

      Full Article:

      Clipped from: Philadelphia Daily News article by Paul
      Domowitch

      "...In 1962, a frustrated Philadelphia overcoat salesman by
      the name of Ed Sabol and his son Steve paid the NFL $3,000
      to film the league's championship game between the Green
      Bay Packers and New York Giants. Held the premiere of the
      highlight film of the Packers' 16-7 victory at Toots Shor's
      restaurant in Manhattan...

      Technology has come a long way since then. So has the
      popularity of the NFL. Back then, baseball was McDonald's
      and pro football was Bob's Big Burger. Forty-plus years
      later, thanks in no small part to the inspired filmmaking
      of the Sabols and their venture, NFL Films, the NFL is, far
      and away, the most popular professional sports league in
      America.

      This fall, the league will take another significant step in
      its evolution when it launches its own television channel,
      the NFL Network. The channel, like the NFL Sunday Ticket
      package, will air on DirecTV, but is expected to be on most
      cable systems within a year or two..."

      ***** ... and then? Can PPV be far behind?
