NFL said it won't schedule Christmas games on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

NBA Christmas was hijacked by the NFL. Next year, the NFL will return it.

Hans Schroeder, NFL executive V.P. of media distribution, tells Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal 

the league will not play on Christmas Tuesday or Wednesday.

Next year, Christmas is Wednesday.

Like save and share

I doubt it. That doesn't mean Hans is lying. I think he's telling the truth now. I doubt the truth will last.

Currently, "no games when Christmas lands on Tuesday or Wednesday." That'll change next year.

If not, I misunderstand the NFL's drive to maximize profits. Because it does. Why stop when a little calendar manipulation can fix the problem?
