Did I waste my money or was I wise?

    Last night after the last NFL game I grabbed a few domains related to the Super Bowl. GiantsVsPats.com and two others like it.

    I figured they had to be worth money to someone that can take advantage of the super hype that is gonna happen for the next two weeks.

    Think I will make decent money flipping these on egay or should I offer them up someplace else? I would think they need to be sold fast to be developed.

    If your strategy was to sell them, then yes, you wasted your money...

    I might be wrong.

    I am not sure too many people are breaking down doors trying to buy NFL domains.

    Explain why and what I should do with them otherwise in your opinion.

    The only option i think you might have and could make $50 on is by using it as a video adsense site and then your main traffic and money making will be once the match has finished, put all the main videos from youtube up on it but use adsense to monetize it. Should get decent traffic for a couple of weeks, then maybe try flippa and get a stupid person who see's your last 2 weeks revenue and sell it

    I think, in this case, the money was wasted. Of little resell value.

    I'm not sure somebody will want to buy them, unless they are planning to stream the game or something. I think that you can figure out a way to monetize them in the meantime to at least pay for the domain registration though.

    The NFL is also one of the most active at going after people that infringe on trademarks and copyrights. Hell you can not even use the words SuperBowl for your superbowl party.

    I would be more worried about wasted time with this project than wasted money...
