    If the Giants are chosen Mara will likely allow it and take one for the team so to speak.

    Wellington Mara's attitude was quite different that the way you're describing John Mara's.
    You can't compare the two situations. One was about creating successful league and the other is about a meaningless commercial that will have close to no effect on the league whatsoever.

    And revenue sharing resulted in the most successful and profitable league in the history of American sports. Wellington's family is very wealthy because of it. He wasn't "taking one for the team."

    John Mara holds more league clout in his pinkie than Roger Goodell

    the owners own Goodell.... and the Mara and Rooney family are at the top of that list
    The NFL owners passed the Hard Knocks rule about teams being forced to do the show. That wasn't Goodell.

    So, if the owners agreed to that rule about Hard Knocks then Mara and Rooney don't have much choice. The NFL is a brand and Hard Knocks is a popular show. A lot of coaches and teams don't like doing Hard Knocks, but the fact that the majority of owners passed the Hard Knocks rule means they don't care about who doesn't want to do it.
    One of these teams is not like the others

    The Giants take the business of football very seriously and I can't imagine anyone forcing John Mara's hand here. We're not the Cowboys or the Jets who seek the limelight at the expense of football.

    Goodell should take his Hard Knocks and London games and shove them. That being said, I wouldn't mind watching us.

    It's not Goodell, it's the owners choice, they vote on these things. Why don't people realize that.

    Exactly at the end of the day these owners are business men and more exposure means more money.

    Yet another--in a series of many-- reason why I love this particular team.
