It will all even out in the end - there's just going to be short-term pain for Fox here.

but that's assuming Fox gets there. 9 years from now, we have no clue what TV will look like. In today's world, it'd be big, but 9 years from now who knows.

No matter what the delivery model looks like in 9 years, Fox is going to have the exclusive right to sell it to the public.

They will be just fine.

You sure about the 2026 games coming here? They're supposed to be in North America, but then again just about every rule FIFA has was busted, badly, in the awarding of the games to Russia and Qatar.

I wouldn't be surprised if FIFA gave them to Morocco.
