  1. Because if I wasn't on a cruise ship in the middle if the ocean I'd drown.๐Ÿ˜‡
  2. Ray, are those 100 million viewers all unique viewers, i.e separate people? Or is it the 16 million average per game watching 5 - 6 games per week? Or is it somewhere in the middle? My point is and was if NCL drops NFL games from their TV's on a ship of 2,300 people how many individual people would be pissed off enough to abandon ship and sail another line. Is it 30% of the passengers(700 ish)? Is it 10% of the passengers (230)? Is it 1% of the passengers(23)? Or is it 2?
  3. I'm not misreading anything. Please re-read my posts. I quoted the per game average of approx 16 million (rounded up).
  4. It was in an press release regarding the 2018 season average viewership vs the 2017 season. Of course, individual week's stats very greatly so I used a full season stat which is more representative. Does the overall scale up by 5 - 6x on average for the season? Please feel free to research. If you think NCL is going to loose tons of customers because of this go ahead and short the stock. I'm not.
  5. I don't give a rat's behind about free movies but if they ever try to take away those free TV curling championships from me there will be heck to pay!!!!! ๐Ÿงน๐Ÿงน๐Ÿงน
  6. I'll be on that cruise. I'll sing for you. Buy really, really good ear plugs.๐Ÿ™‰
  7. I never stay in a hotel room with no windows so an inside cabin is out for me. I tried an ocean view once and hated it so my minimum is a balcony cabin. So I'd probably take one $3,000 cruise and put the extra $1,000 into the stock market. Then, next year I could take two $4,000 cruises!๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  8. If you think this is hilarious you must read the thread over on the Celebrity board about no free movies in the staterooms anymore! And yes the Patriots will probably win the SB again but they'll be eaten alive by the Dolphins today!!! ๐Ÿˆ OK, OK, these 2019 Dolphins all have their jaws wired shut and are all vegetarians anyway so couldn't eat anything alive but there's always hope, isn't there? ๐Ÿ‘
  9. With the curtain drawn it's no longer an indoor venue - it's your private abode. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  10. NFL Media was the source that Forbes used for the 16 million number. Right from the horse's mouth as it were. Use whichever number you want, but the percentage of cruisers who will leave NCL over this will still be minuscule - about the same odds my Toronto Argonauts have of winning the Grey Cup this year ๐Ÿ˜ญ - or the Dolphins winning the Superbowl. I won't be shorting NCL stock over this. P.S. I originally wrote Brown's just out of habit but something froze over and they are not predicted to be in the basement this year. - We'll see. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. And you got that life changing advice for free! Non cruisers would have to pay ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘ for that. ๐Ÿ˜„
  12. Some of the passengers will be disappointed because NFL is not on the Jewel, certainly not ALL. Forbes's estimates the 16 million Americans watch NFL on TV each week. Let's say another 16 million watch it on-line or in bars etc. That's 32 million out of about 330 million people, or around 10%, of the population. That works out to be about 230 people on the Jewel, if everybody on board was American. If we remove the Canadians, the Europeans, the Brits and everybody else you might have 200 disappointed cruisers, and that's pushing it. Are all those - every single one of them - going to never, ever, sail NCL again - of course not. They might loose a one or two - heck they probably loose more per cruise from cruisers fed up with those chair hogs taking all the good poolside loungers. Be disappointed, or mad if you want but NCL won't be going bankrupt because legions of NFL fan cruisers will be abandoning the ship! Grab a beer and join the rest of us who are disappointed that the Jewel doesn't play curling, or the Canadian Football League or Luge, or Irish Hurling, or Dancing with the Stars, or ......... ...... or just take a vacation from the NFL for a week or two. It will still be there when you get back home.
  13. Finally, a thread that deals with important issues!! ๐Ÿธ Those Chair hog and Tip remover threads were getting rather tedious around here. ๐Ÿฅ‚
  14. So if I have $1 million in non-refundable OBC on the last night of the cruise that $1 million watch is not so overpriced anymore. ๐Ÿ˜„
