1) The footballs for games should be considered the NFL's property and for the game they should be supplied, monitored and checked by the NFL. MLB for example doesn't let the teams play with baseballs that they bring to the game, the NFL should follow suit. No more teams bringing game balls.

That used to be the rule, actually. Guess which team had the rule changed?

If the producer of content has decided not to offer their content in your region, then you have no way to pay them for the content. Whether you access it or not at that point is moot, because the producer of the content has already said that they don't want your money. As owners of the content it's completely up to them who they are interested in accepting payment from.

Incorrect. There is a grand jury who made a decision on terms and evidence dictated by the prosecutor. I think that's the real problem here. A trial, while imperfect, is adversarial and offers the chance to present more evidence and make counter arguments on any terms. The grand jury was limited to what the prosecutor decided to allow.

I'm confused. Are you saying that the grand jury would have been more likely to indict Wilson, if Wilson had been allowed to have a defense attorney?
