  you miss the point entirely.  http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/schools/finances/ billions of dollars. ($10 billion a year just in advertising)tens to hundreds of millions of dollars per schoolevery year.
college gymnastics players get all of that too, and bring no money in to the school and NCAA. football and basketball allow the NCAA billions of dollars in profit.the college athletic system is broken, and it is the NCAA's faultand players don't get gifts - it is against NCAA rules, and will cause them to lose "amateur" status.NCAA, like FIFA, is a corrupt organization that needs a brighter light shone on it....did you know the average life expectancy of an NFL player is 55?
  At least the NFL pays the athletes they make billions off of. Imagine what it is like to be your average college football player who is required to practice/train 40+ hours a week and receive a yearly scholarship worth < $50,000 a year (at most schools) while the NCAA makes billions off you. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/01/opinion/nocera-unionized-college-athletes.html
  yes it is. negotiations between the NFL and the likes of Comcast and Time Warner cable are always interesting - behemoth corporations with too much profits fighting to control content and competitors.
Consider that ESPN adds over $6 per month per cable subscriber (so $72 a year) and EPSN only carries 18 or so games. $4/game NFL Season Ticket: $199 (basic package) 256 games - blacked out locals = 240 $0.83/game decent savings, no? Personally, i don't care about sports enough to get more than is available OTA (except for MotoGP, which already allows me to purchase the season) but for someone who loves the NFL, it is not too shabby.
it is going to depend on details. 10 years is nothing, considering Darwin Streaming Server (Quicktime Streaming Server) was available open source in 1999. RTSP is not new, and if Apple is basing their technology off of the older work they did, well, prior art.
Or, you can download the Univision app and watch all the games (and highlight reels) for free. If your internet connection can handle it, Airplay to your AppleTV & it will be in HD-ish. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/univision-deportes/id353665650?mt=8 gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaal! NBC/Univision are a godsend, as the only terrestrial broadcaster of the World Cup in its entirety in the US of A. The rest of the world enjoys broadcast TV coverage, we get Disney...
I am sure Apple had prototype ARM-based laptops much early than that. Remember, the Newton was ARM-based. In terms of R&D, i would think it imperative that Apple has a laundry list of devices running multiple configs simply to stay abreast of what is in the realm of market possibilities for the next 1, 3, 5 and 10+ years. 
 Long live Mode32 and dirty ROMs!
 endianness didn't cause anyone to thing PPC to Intel wasn't possible. rather, it was a deep dislike of Intel in reference to the mhz myth - RISC vs. CISC showed the large efficiency gains in the processor architecture that was 15 years newer, but Intel and Microsoft were able to squash the actual performances differences by marketing 1, 2 and 3 ghz processor speeds, ignoring the lack of performance gains and supporting the marketing fluff.   Furthermore, the real reason...
