NEWS REAL

• The NFL said today (Nov. 13) that it would move the Monday night game on Nov. 19  (ESPN) between the Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams, originally scheduled for Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.

According to the NFL, “The decision is based on the determination — in consultation with the NFLPA and following a meeting and field inspection this afternoon by NFL and club field experts as well as local and independent outside experts — that the playing field at Estadio Azteca does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency and will not meet those standards by next Monday.”

• CBS said that Tim Tebow would be the host for its in-production reality series, Million Dollar Mile, from LeBron James’ Springhill Entertainment, Warner Bros. and  Fly on the Wall Entertainment. Commentators will be Maria Taylor and Matt Smith. The premise: A team wins $1 million if they can survive an obstacle course being built on real city streets.

• ESPN Events is adding a bowl game to its roster beginning in 2020, the Myrtle Beach Bowl. The game will feature teams from three conference partners: Conference USA, Mid-American Conference and Sun Belt Conference. Each conference will participate up to four times between 2020 and 2025. The Myrtle Beach Bowl will be played in Brooks Stadium, located on the campus of Coastal Carolina, nationally televised on ESPN networks.

• Between now and Nov. 19, every use of #SaluteToService on Twitter will generate a $5 donation, up to $5 million, to the NFL’s military non-profit partners – including the Pat Tillman Foundation, TAPS, USO, Wounded Warrior Project and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

T-Mobile NBA Family Affair Adds Bill Walton, Rick Barry And Their Sons To Campaign

Rick Barry (left) and sons in new T-Mobile spot.May 17, 2010: T-Mobile said it would extend its "$5 Add a Line" campaign this week with multi-media creative featuring company spokesmen Charles Barkley and Dwyane Wade and also adding two more NBA legends and their families to the mix: Bill Walton and Rick Barry and their respective offspring.

The campaign is anchored by a humorous 30-spot that focuses on family connections. Support will include digital branding, billboards, branded content for TNT and ABC, print and local extensions in Boston and Orlando, where the Celtics and Magic are battling in the Eastern Conference Finals. Lead agency is Publicis in the West, Seattle.

The spot will break May 17 during Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers on TNT and will continue through the NBA Finals on ABC, which could also take it through Father's Day (June 20).

The spot opens with a voiceover asking, "Now that adding a family member to your plan is just $5, who would you add?" The first scene show brothers Scooter, Drew, Jon and Brent Barry — the latter two having also played in the NBA — on a basketball court watching dad Rick shooting free throws in the classic underhand move that saw him record a 90% FT average for his career. "We'd add Pops if he'd just stop doing that," they say as the elder Rick hits another shot.

Bill Walton gets dissed by sons.In their home, Bill Walton's sons Adam, Nathan and Chris all say they'd add Luke, a reference to their brother who is a member of the Lakers. Dad Bill retorts, "What about your old man?"

In the next scene, a man at home watching TV says, "I'd add my three boys: Javier, Tomas and . . . D-Wade!!!" as the scene shifts to the NBA all-star in action.

Barkley finally gets his inauspicious moment when he says he'd add his Mom "if she'd pick up the phone. Momma - pick up the phone!" he pleads.

A voiceover then reiterates T-Mobile's "$5 plan" while touting an offer to buy a T-Mobile My Touch and getting a second one free, including the Motorola Cliq with MotoBlur.

T-Mobile said it is "excited to bring together these real families who unite and connect through the love the game [while giving fans] a glimpse of a fun moment among each family."

T-Mobile has also been running a separate campaign with spots featuring Barkley paired with Wade and Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, In addition, the telecom company is in the fourth season of taking its mobile hoops and interactive NBA Nation tour across the country along with other NBA marketing partners Sprite and Kia.
