My church does a "big game" party every year as a fund raiser. It is treated more of as a fellowship opportunity than the big game watch. Funny thing is that of the 150 people at the church, maybe25 will be watching the game seriously, 25 some what seriousely and the rest wonder around the church visiting and once in a while checking the score.
It said public showing on a TV 55" or larger. And, I really don't see how they can enforce this everywhere. If places are advertising for a Super Bowl party, then that will get their attention, but if the invites are personal, there's no way they could enforce this.
So, I have a 60" TV, and am inviting the neighbors over, am I going to get sued by the NFL?
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin 1775
I have a question about the ratings thing. If you have 100 people in a church watching a game - and the commercials - isn't that the same as having 100 people watching the game and commercials at home? The commercials are still reaching the same number of people. Do the advertisers really count the number of people watching it or the number of television sets that are playing it - and if it is the number of television sets, how the heck do they know whether a television is on that specific channel anyway? I just don't get it. Unless these advertisers have some Big Brother way of verifying who's doing what, I don't see the difference it would make to them whether consumers watch at home or with 100 of their fellow church members.
