This was only across the 28 games they showed via linear and doesn't include their NBC Gold package viewership. But I know they exceeded their NBC Gold package sales target by 80%.

It sounds like they would basically be asking a small number of volunteers at local and regional level to take over responsibility for things they have failed to do.

I just wonder since there would be more on the table as the season is now aligned right through Feb-Nov. I wouldn't want to see an arrangement like SUM in soccer but the high performance side of US rugby closely collaborating with the MLR commercially wouldn't be a bad thing and might be the only way for US rugby to get out of the whole they are in.
On restructuring USA Rugby, this is probably a crazy suggestion but would there be any scope in the MLR clubs setting up new non profit Geo unions and running local rugby or perhaps just taking over the current Geo unions? It would never happen until the MLR is profitable and they would of course be seperated from the for profit MLR clubs. With the shit show that is US rugby, maybe these newly MLR backed Geo unions could do a better job with a more professional approach. It is in their interest to grow the game after all. The US is basically a continent, perhaps a decentralized approach is for the best but not with the current committee organisation.
