Ovo je posljednja sezona u kojoj Medveščak može "prodavati bureke" hrvatskim igračima. Ne dobiju li "ebyslovci" pravu priliku pokraj raznoraznih "jakopiča", "rajsara", "korena" i sličnih više nijedan Hrvat neće biti toliko naivan da prihvati "ponudu" iz "brloga".

Nazalost mislim da si u krivu. Iako ti je analitika vrhunska,  nesto te prijeci da budes potpuno objektivan glede predvidjanja.... vladajucoj strukturi je bitno da se odrzi (pritom ne mislim samo nuzno na ovaj uhljebnicki tip hokeja nego opcenito). Pa bu i dalje prodavali bureke hrvatskim igracima, koji, istini za volju i nemaju nekog izbora...

igrati PH za klupske boje? Ili preci u Mdv di bu bili bar na 5 minuta pod reflektorima (i mozda imali neku sansu? ipak ce se potajno nadati , unatoc svim iskustvima proteklih godina, da ne velim desetljecu/ima?) Kako veli Crni ionak bute svi zavrsili u MDV...

Rezime svega  jest vrlo jednostavna,.. ne smiju se prestati vrtiti pedale, jer ak se to dogodi kljuc u bravu za cijeli sport...stoga treba izdrzati do penzije, iscjediti kravu dok ne krepa... a MDV je tu privlacno Potemkinovo selo za sve.... i za feudalce i za zrtve.

Technology Titans Won't Splurge to Save Sports
 Leagues shouldn't look to Silicon Valley if TV money starts to dry up.
By Shira Ovide

The bosses of major sports leagues have been gobbling antacid. Television viewership has taken a hit for the National Football League and English Premier League soccer, and younger Americans tuned out for last year's Olympics broadcasts.

But the sports honchos are licking their lips at the prospects of Silicon Valley's moneybags coming into the game to help bankroll their leagues if the stream of TV money stops growing. They shouldn't bet on it.
It's true that Amazon, Twitter, Facebook and Google have to various degrees shown interest in streaming sporting events to the collective billions of people on their digital hangouts. There are cricket tournaments on Google's YouTube, volleyball on Twitter Inc. and soon NFL games on's web video service.

t's not clear, though, that the internet titans are willing to pay the huge long-term contracts to stream sports that have flowed from the television industry. Those upfront fees from TV have been the lifeblood of sports leagues for decades, and losing them could mean real danger to the financial foundation of the sports industrial complex.
The sports industry has become powerful because of its symbiosis with TV. The networks sign contracts for many years for the rights to televise sports. Those games are popular with viewers and advertisers. That means TV companies have the money to keep paying higher fees for sports.

In the U.S., those sports contracts are huge. Walt Disney Co. has agreements to pay $49 billion in coming years for sports that air on ESPN and its other TV networks, according to securities filings. Amounts owed under television sports contracts amount to $57 billion for Fox parent company 21st Century Fox Inc. and $8.1 billion at the smaller CBS Corp., which airs NFL games and the NCAA college basketball tournament. BTIG Research analyst Brandon Ross has said the Ultimate Fighting Championship might ask for more than $400 million a year in its next TV contract for mixed martial arts matches.

This stream of TV fees may have already peaked. For now, sports remain some of the most popular programming in the world, but there are signs of strain. And the television industry is going through painful changes. When long-term contracts for the NFL or Major League Baseball come up for renewal in coming years, the TV network owners and their investors may not be so eager to pay as much to broadcast games. Sports bigwigs and pundits believe the technology titans will fill the gap now that YouTube and Facebook are replacing TV.

Those prognostications are iffy. Even for the deep-pocketed technology titans, $50 billion isn't chump change. And few of the tech titans have seemed willing to commit to long-term contracts.

Everyone involved in the major sports leagues should listen carefully to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He has made it clear he might want to stream select sports but not necessarily step into the big-ticket contracts the leagues are used to. "The long-term goal is actually not to be paying for specific content like that, but doing a revenue-share model," he told stock analysts in May.

What he means is Facebook doesn't want to pay in advance before it webcasts a single baseball game. Instead, it plans to split with sports leagues the revenue from advertisements in the programs. This is how YouTube, owned by Google parent company Alphabet Inc., mostly does deals with nearly all of its videos whether they are made by teenage auteurs or Justin Bieber. This is pointedly not how the television business works for sports or entertainment. Like Facebook, though, Google doesn't care about conforming to existing industries' business models.

The most successful new-generation internet entertainment company also thinks sports are a bad financial bet. "It is hard to transform sports through the internet," Netflix Inc. CEO Reed Hastings said at a tech conference in May. "You carry it over the internet, but it doesn't add much value to the sports experience." Considering how much influence Hastings has on his tech peers, this should give the sports bosses the willies.

That said, any of the tech powers can flip strategies at any time if they decide plunking down billions of dollars to air sports makes sense. And they are willing to experiment here and there with upfront sports payouts, as Amazon did with its deal to pay $50 million for 10 NFL games to promote its video service.

But the fact is Amazon, Facebook and Google mostly don't need specific pieces of programming to help turn them into destinations. They already are. The sports bosses should keep popping the Tums. Silicon Valley's moneybags may not be the white knights they are waiting for.

NBC’s $12 Billion Olympics Bet Stumbles, Thanks to Millennials
By Gerry Smith
August 19, 2016

Rio broadcast ratings down 25 percent among 18 to 49 year olds

Sports fans get older while advertisers seek younger viewers

Back in June, Steve Burke described what he called his Olympics “nightmare.”

“We wake up someday and the ratings are down 20 percent,” the chief executive officer of NBCUniversal said at a conference. “If that happens, my prediction would be that millennials had been in a Facebook bubble or a Snapchat bubble and the Olympics have come, and they didn’t know it.”

He has escaped that with the Rio games this year -- but not by much. Prime-time broadcast viewership has been down about 17 percent compared to the London games four years ago. And in the 18-to-49-year-old age group coveted by advertisers, it’s been even worse. That audience has been 25 percent smaller, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

The Summer Olympics ratings slip, the first since 2000, raises fresh doubts about what used to be a sure thing: live sports would be a huge and growing draw no matter what. That’s why NBC parent Comcast Corp. paid $12 billion for exclusive U.S. broadcast rights to the Olympics through 2032. Others, including Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN, 21st Century Fox Inc., Time Warner Inc. and CBS Corp., have made long-term bets on football, baseball and basketball.

One issue is that many fans are getting older. The average age over the past decade of National Football League and Major League Baseball viewers has increased by four and seven years, respectively, to 47 and 53, according to Ben Thompson, founder of the blog Stratechery.

“Sports is less ingrained in the younger demographic,” said Brandon Ross, an analyst at BTIG Research. “It has been replaced by other things like video games and e-sports and Snapchat feeds.”

Through Tuesday, NBC said, 78 million unique users streamed on the NBC Sports app and, up 24 percent from same period in London.

The network is reaching more 18-to-49-year-olds on broadcast television during the Olympics than its three broadcast rivals combined, Lazarus said. While about 98 percent of Olympics watchers are still on traditional television, “We also understand that to millennials and younger viewers, prime time is really ‘my time.’ They want to watch on their terms, and that’s why moving forward we’ll continue to adapt to viewer behavior with our coverage on multiple platforms.”

It’s a delicate balance: Online offerings may have cut into NBC’s Olympics audience on TV, John Martin, CEO of Time Warner’s Turner division, said in an interview.

“Potentially it’s diluted the concentration of viewership on the linear network,” Martin said. “I wonder if there was less content available -- and people felt more compelled to tune in to the traditional network -- whether that would bolster ratings.”

NBC charged up to 50 percent higher rates for internet ads than for TV because the web audience trends younger and marketers are eager to reach millennials, Lazarus said, and there was little trouble selling spots on both platforms. NBC said its profit from the London games was about $120 million, and that it sold more than $1.2 billion in commercials this year and expects to even bigger earnings than four years ago.

The Olympics continue to have that draw. The audience “is not as good as it was four years ago, but in such a fragmented media world, it’s such a huge number,” said Andy Donchin, chief domestic investment officer at ad-buyer Amplify US. “We’re buying TV to get mass reach.”

But it wasn’t mass enough. Because ratings fell short, the network had to give buyers free commercial time to make good on guarantees that a certain number of viewers would switch on television sets. The promise was for ratings equaling an average of about 21 million U.S. households and the reality, as of late last week, was roughly 18.2 million, according to a person familiar with the matter.

NBC is “going to have to figure out the economics,” said Ian Schafer, founder of the Deep Focus ad agency. It has two years to do it, before the winter games in Pyeongchang, South Korea."
