    Sounds like it will be reincarnated on NFL Network.

    One less reason to subscribe to HBO. I always, always made sure to watch "Inside the NFL."

    I'm surprised at this...thought it was still one of the most successful shows they had.

    That's a stupid quote.
    The show was like many others out there (yes, it was original, but copied many times over).
    How are you going to reincarnate the HBO version?

    Follow the money. If you are the NFL, do you want the NFL Network as the main source of NFL programming? They will keep a portion of games on other nets for the rights fees, but this type of programming is different. They stand to profit more from a successful NFL network, I would think, but I have no direct knowledge of this situation. Just an observation.

    But that type of programming exists all over the place.

    It's on ESPN and NBC's Sunday night game of the week. That's about it.

    Nope...it's all over ESPN all week, there is a syndicated show from the NFL each week, etc.

    Maybe they hope to bring the HBO audience that watched the show to the NFL Network to help it grow. Makes sense to have your product on your network, but again, just an observation. They have limited rights to the locals in recent years.

    At this point they need ESPN, but not HBO.

    The restrictions on the locals have been relaxed. The NFL blinked on that one because of pressure by TV stations.
    And one hour a week is not gonna make the network grow. If that was a unique show, it's one thing, but it's not.

    That's what I wrote -- it's on ESPN and NBC's Sunday night show. Where else?
