The NFL has arrived at a giant of a deal for the next 5 years of TV rights for NFL football. This deal is bigger than the MLB, NBA, and NASCAR combined. One little problem, ABC and ESPN have yet to deal with the NFL. The Sunday night and Monday night deal has been sweetened a bit, but Disney will probably wait until Eisner’s successor have been chosen. Of course, there is always the chance the NBC/Universal might outbid the mouse.
