Some of you old guys remember in the olden days JMU would pay Home Team Sports $5,000 to broadcast games on their network.

Is it $1 million per year or $1 million over 4 years? I think the latter b it could be misremembering

Was reported as $4.5 mil over 4 years. And I think it was boosted this year, but I'd bet a good part of that is tied to subscriber/performance numbers and there are likely membership clauses in the contract also. I'd bet they make substantially less going forward.

That's interesting. So perhaps since the CAA is screwing us out of getting a minimum amount of CBS Sports games, perhaps we have a chance at getting some of that money on the rights fees returned to us. I doubt it, but it definitely made me wonder.

Obviously a CAA with no JMU will have less to negotiate with in future contracts.

RE: Flo Sports
So maybe it is the lower number that is distributed to schools? Most money goes to CBSsports and a little pocket change to the schools?

Will be interesting to see what JMU gets out of the Sun Belt ESPN deal. Certainly more than Flo, but maybe a phase in during the transition before full media payouts.

Yes, think I had seen it was around $70k per school with Flo each year with almost all of that going to buy CBS SN games. So, yes, pocket change was distributed. And if JMU was 35-50% of subscribers as reported, you can bet that will drop. Maybe soon if the contract is renegotiable based on membership changes or subscriber performance.

Even with a phase in, the SBC media money will be massively more for JMU. And that doesn't include improved guarantee game payments, likely improved sponsorship deals, contributions, etc.

For JMU, it will be light years better than the CAA was.

RE: Flo Sports
Flo deserves to die. The CAA saddled JMU with that albatross of a media company, and the CAA deserves to suffer along with Flo. Good riddance to both.
