Corrupt, maybe. But not even close. Not even in the ballpark.
When the NFL puts the Super Bowl in the Middle East and makes slaves build them a one time use facility for $5B, and says no booze or gays and keep the cheerleaders at home, then we can talk.
The funny thing is you say that like it's not just a few years off. LIV and the NFL have a massive overlap of target audience. Without the massive TV deal they get, they'd be schilling to the middle east in a second.
I'd bet that's what the hangup is getting Bezos to bid on the Commanders, conflict of interest with the Amazon streaming deal.
