NFL cancels Sunday Night Football this week

By David Goldman

New York City (CNNMoney)– The NFL has actually canceled the last Sunday night football video game of the season. Do not fret, nobody was going to view anyway.

Next Sunday’s video game had 2 disadvantages: The video games all had a likelihood of being dull by the time Sunday night rolled around. And this coming Sunday is New Year’s Eve, a day when traditionally few Americans watch tv.

The last time the NFL held a Sunday night football game on New Year’s Eve was in 2007, when the Chicago Bears hosted the Green Bay Packers. It was quarterback Brett Favre’s last video game with the Packers (and widely anticipated to be his last game ever). Still, only 13.4 million individuals watched that video game, about a quarter less than the average Sunday Night Football video game that season.

Because the last Sunday night football video game also happens to be the last video game of the season, the NFL attempts to schedule a video game that will definitely have playoff ramifications for one or both of the teams playing. (A group that already made the playoffs may sit their starters, leading to a remarkably boring video game.)

This season, there were no such video games that satisfied the NFL’s criteria on the final week’s schedule. The NFL would have either set up a video game that had a chance of being a snooze or a video game that already had no playoff implications at all.

Instead, there will be 7 games set up for 1 p.m. and an abnormally high 9 video games arranged for 4:25 p.m. kickoffs. There won’t be an 8:30 p.m. video game this year.

“We felt that both from a competitive perspective and from a fan viewpoint, the most reasonable thing to do is to arrange all Week 17 video games in either the 1 p.m. or 4:25 p.m. windows,” stated Howard Katz, the NFL’s broadcasting chief, in a ready statement.

All of Sunday’s games will be relayed on CBS or Fox. NBC will not have a video game this coming week, and NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy decreased to comment about whether the network would be compensated for the lost broadcast. Unlike other weeks of the season, the NFL has the sole discretion about the scheduling of the last Sunday night game of the year.

2017 has been a tough year for the NFL. The scores for this NFL’s season are down 9% from last year.

Trump travel restriction ends Sunday; new limitations expected


Brynn Anderson/ AP President Donald Trump speaks at a project rally in support of Sen. Luther Strange, Friday, Sept. 22, 2017, in Huntsville, Ala.

Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017|2:47 p.m.

WASHINGTON– President Donald Trump is expected to announce brand-new constraints on travel to the United States as his restriction on visitors from 6 Muslim-majority nations expires Sunday, 90 days after it went into impact.

The Department of Homeland Security has advised the president sign off on brand-new, more targeted constraints on foreign nationals from countries it says choose not to share info with the U.S. or have not taken essential security safety measures.

Trump appeared to preview his intents as he spoke with press reporters on the tarmac of a New Jersey airport Sunday, stating: “the tougher the much better.”

Authorities haven’t stated which– or the number of– nations will be impacted by the new limitations, which might work as soon as Sunday.

“The acting secretary has actually advised actions that are tough which are customized, including limitations and improved screening for particular nations,” said Miles Taylor, therapist to acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke.

The present restriction bars residents of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen who lack a “reputable claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” from getting in the U.S.

Unlike Trump’s first travel ban, which stimulated chaos at airports across the country and a flurry of legal obstacles, authorities stated they have actually been working for months on the brand-new guidelines, in cooperation with various companies and in conversation with foreign federal governments.

The suggestions are based on a brand-new baseline developed by DHS that includes aspects such as whether nations problem electronic passports with biometric information and share information about tourists’ terror-related and criminal histories. The United States then shared those benchmarks with every country on the planet and gave them 50 days to comply.

The people of countries that refused might now face travel restrictions and more strict screening procedures that would last forever, up until their governments complied.

Trump last week required a “harder” travel ban after a bomb partially blew up on a London subway.

“The travel ban into the United States need to be far larger, harder and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!” he tweeted.

Critics have implicated Trump of overstepping his authority and breaking the U.S. Constitution’s securities versus religious bias. Trump had called for a “overall and total shutdown of Muslims getting in the United States” during his campaign.
