🏈 Pro Football Talk: The NFL could lose up to $21 billion in the Sunday Ticket trial. The fans could win the ability to see out-of-market games for a lot less money than the Sunday Ticket package currently costs.

Via the Associated Press, opening statements happened Thursday in the massive antitrust class action against the NFL over the Sunday Ticket package.

The plaintiffs contend that the NFL, DirecTV, CBS, and Fox worked together to make Sunday Ticket more expensive than it had to be. The NFL, represented by Beth Wilkinson (whose investigation of the Commanders greased the skids for Dan Snyder’s exit) claims it’s all about consumers having full access to content.

“The case is about choice,” Wilkinson told the jury. “This is a valuable, premium product. Think about all the choices available to fans. We want as many people as possible to watch the free broadcasts.”

🏈 Steelers defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko thinks the NFL should make exclusive packages for fans to watch their favorite team.

“I have an idea. How bout just making exclusive packages for fans with their favorite teams allowing them to watch all 17 of their favorite teams games. That way the teams individually make money and the fans are happy to watch their team instead of select market games,” Fehoko wrote on X.

🏈 Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Pittsburgh leaders on Wednesday proposed transformations at Point State Park and Market Square as part of a revitalization plan ahead of the 2026 NFL Draft.

The plan, which also includes upgrades of a block of Eighth Street in the Cultural District, was released by the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh.

🏈 Steel City Star shared a clip of the defensive montage from the 1979 Steelers highlight film narrated by John Facenda. Written and edited by Bob Angelo for NFL Films.

🏈 The Football’s Greatest Moments account on X posted a throwback clip of Mitch Trubisky doing a hard count on Jon Gruden’s QB Camp. Gruden expected more out of Trubisky’s hard count.

🏈 On Chris Simms’ Unbuttoned podcast, co-host Ahmed Fareed named former Steelers offensive lineman Jon Kolb as one of the strongest players in NFL history. Kolb finished fourth in the World’s Strongest Man competition in the in 1979.
