The decision in the “NFL Sunday Ticket” anti-trust case was rendered Thursday and the league took a pummeling. A group of “plaintiffs” who purchased the package won a judgment of $4.7 billion from the Los Angeles, CA, jury, while “bar owners” were awarded $96 million.

Per the Hollywood Reporter:

The decision, which was reached after less than a full day of deliberations, could force the league to change its broadcast model that’s made it the most popular sports league in the country.
