    Beginning to think folks like you get the emails, those of us that are subscribed might not get it.

    Mine is set to auto renewal and I got the email for ST and later ST MAXX.

    I'm not sure what AT&T's requirements are to get it free but it isn't because you've had or you hadn't had it. It is also not because of the package you subscribe to. I have the Premier package but I know others with different packages have got the email too. I'm starting to think they just draw names out of a hat.

    I don't gamble or play fantasy football. I'm a Giants fan. And I enjoy the odd neutral game. To me gambling is a waste of money that I could spend somewhere else

    Spoke to Retention today about getting this email.
    She noted on my account that NFLST Maxx should be free for me since I had the email.
    Sure.

    I've been betting on football games for years. Always the same story, I break even. Or close to even. One year I won enough to buy a 42" plasma. Aside from that I break even. I just enjoy the games more if I have a couple of bucks on them. Just me, not trying to proselytize about betting.

    I had a hard time believing CSRs before the transition, now I really have a hard time believing anything that comes out of their mouths.

    Oh trust me I'm not expecting Stidham to be 100% the same as Brady but I am hoping he will be decent. And I suspect we will have a season even if they end up playing to limited or no crowds. The NFL can afford to do that as their TV revenue is too valuable to not have a product on the air. Also I got the 2020 season for free and I've had NFL Sunday Ticket for free or low cost for many years now.

    I'm the opposite, when I've bet on games or played fantasy sports, it ruined my casual viewing of games. I get intense when I watch my team play, but the other games I can watch casually and enjoy the competition. A good game is a good game. But I get that. Sometimes you just need a rooting interest to enjoy the game.

    I want to see how Belichick handles life without Brady. And I want to see how Brady handles life without Belichick. Be kinda funny if the Bucs get into the playoffs and the Pats don't. Not knocking the Patriots, I've been a fan for years.

    I hope I'm wrong about the season not being played. This is one more time I don't want to be right. MLB gets lots of money from TV and I don't see much happening with them.

    The intensity is definitely ramped up when I have money on a game. I enjoy that. But it's kinda like homework, I end up watching games I have little interest in, just gathering intelligence to use when it comes time to bet. I'm a Jets/Giants fan, I look forward to the time I can show some interest in them again.

    We've already seen how Belichick does without Brady in the Pats already. For one the 2008 season with Matt Cassel taking the team 11-5 and still not making the playoffs due to the Dolphins beating the Jets in their week 17 match up which lead to the Dolphins winning the AFC East. Also 2016 for four games due to the Brady suspension which had the combination of Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett start (Garoppolo was injured the middle of the 2nd game, Brissett finished that game then did the next two). They went 3-1 combined in those four games. So I have good confidence that Belichick has things in place to ensure the Pats success going forward.

    It will be interesting to see how Brady does however without Belichick. Clearly the Bucs are putting the talent around Brady to have a good run but how often in the past have we seen these on paper should be successful teams just not get the job done on game day?

    Guess I should have said "without Brady permanently". I'm aware of the times Brady was out with injuries. I was bothered when they let Garoppolo go, that seemed like something the Jets would do.

    NFL Sunday ticket Max shows listed on my bill for the 5/2/20 bill and $0.00 dollars on amount, says season starts 9/13 but I never got an email about any of it! I just found out about it from the emailed auto pay email bill summary within the last hour, guess I’m one of those lucky customers

    In all fairness I totally understand why the Pats stayed with Brady and traded Garoppolo. Brady was still playing at a high level and made it to two more Super Bowls (and winning one) since trading Garoppolo. Keeping Garoppolo while also having Brady would have made those Super Bowl runs much more difficult on the team's salary cap as well since you dang well know Jimmy would want top money after showing he could be an starter in this league.

    And I brought up the stats of times without Brady not just for you but others in this thread just as an reminder more than anything else that Belichick is capable of coaching well.

    Excited for everyone that's getting the free offer. Nice to know that far in advance that you're squared away for the season. Schedule release is Thursday, so enjoy it!

    I know Bill is more than capable. I just can't wait to see how this unfolds.

    It looks like those who never subscribed to Sunday Ticket will get it free and those of us who have been paying for the package all alo g will get to continue paying for it. Does that seem fair?

    I had NFL ST for 12 straight years, but did not have it last year. I got the email notice that I am getting it for free this year.
