ACC signs new Grant of Rights Contract

6 posts in this topic

Media revenue will now be north of 20 million per year per team.

The big thing though is that if teams leave, the ACC is entitled to their media earnings in whatever conference they move to.

It was signed by all schools, even Notre Dame.

This should stop the realignment circus for a while, at least in major conferences.

I bet UCONN and Cincy are real mad right now. This might have locked them into the American Athletic Conference for a long long time.

Excellent move for the conference. Almost guarantees that the conference will be around for at least 12 more years.

I am not sure those schools are locked out. Since there is almost no chance of Notre Dame becoming a full member, the ACC might eventually try to add a school to get up to 16 in football.

What is the arrangement now, 15 schools, but 14 for football, or is it a 16/15 split? If they have 15 football schools now, they should just steal Navy from the AAC before Navy joins.

Pretty much stops any team from leaving for that period. Good move on the ACC part. Hopefully with the new playoff system it will allow for teams to play old rivals and better teams at the beginning of the season.

14 teams for football + ND for 5 games. 15 teams all other sports. Now that the ACC is stable it should seriously consider reorganizing the divisions regionally, North and South. It would provide for more traditional rivalries and increase the number of games within driving distance for fans/students.

    • @Panthro Proving Medical Malpractice Based on Diagnostic Errors The law does not hold doctors legally responsible for all diagnostic errors. Instead, patients usually must prove three things in order to prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit based on a wrong diagnosis: A doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor was negligent -- that is, did not provide treatment in a reasonably skillful and competent manner. The doctor's negligence caused actual injury to the patient. Most medical malpractice cases hinge on either the second or third element (or both) -- was the doctor negligent and did that negligence harm the patient?   Easily provable  1. ER dr saw mom and had all the records. Mom was healthy prior, no issues besides a murmur she was born with. 2. Motrin does dot fix the flu especially if you one has A and B. Greenville drs from ICU would testify against New Bern ER doc. No tamiflu prescribed nor any other treatment besides Motrin. (Anybody can take Tylenol/asprin but tamiflu is prescribed) 3. Without x raying or running further test, mom went from early caught flu to both pneumonia that now developed 3rd stage ARDS and now pulmonary fibrosis is setting in. Due this negligence, mom will live at most 5 years in poor quality will my dad ends bankrupt. I just proved how not properly treating mom has lead to a snowball effect due to incompetence which lead to where we are now. Dad was not given a course of action, he does not have a M.D. at the end of his name, and the hippocratic oath has been tarnished. I am in the settle or I will find out how he will lose his license. I will file a complaint with the hospital and board. Publish in the newspaper about his care and online. My mom will never be the same.
