I dont think this will happen because I just read an article about Tags and it seems he fears having the NFL get overexposed by having too many games on throughout the week (like MLB, NBA, NHL, etc). Like us, he enjoys the build-up and thinks that build-up is great for the league.
When I first heard this idea I wondered HOW they could have mid-week games. You'll get too many mismatches with one team extremely rested and another tired from playing on Tuesday or what not. Even the game after a MNF game shows a big drop in play, another day in there would kill the intensity of the game!

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Thanksgiving 2006

Update from today's dallasnews.com

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont....21741ca9.html

"Cowboys' Thanksgiving game is staying put: Tagliabue said the Cowboys' Thanksgiving game will remain on network television, contrary to a report recently that the league wanted to put the Cowboys against Washington in the night game on NFL Network.

The Cowboys would prefer to keep their 3:15 kickoff. The league releases its schedule in April."

KC did thanksgiving games before the merger.

Guys. We do not play Dallas on Thanksgiving. That was an article posted in January and the schedule came out for turkey day and we are not on it.

Hope that's cleared up now.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Thanksgiving 2006

Hey, I hope the Skins don't play any of their late December games on the NFL Network. I don't have it or live in the D.C. area. I would not be able to watch it. I have Charter Cable and if they don't get the NFL Network back by this Fall, they will be losing me as a customer.

Re: Redskins vs. Cowboys Thanksgiving 2006

I know that this may sound a little stuck up or snobbish, but why dont you all get directv. It is actually cheaper than cable, at least where I live anyway. And that BS about poor quality during bad weather is false. Over the past year and a half I can count on one hand how many times my sattelite picture was out and I still wouldnt even use all of my fingers. And for those of you live out of state Directv provides NFL Sunday Ticket. That is how I survive the season. Now if you still live at home with your parents and are watching their TV, then you are just going to have to suck it up until you move out on your own. You could of coarse get a job and ask permission to hook up DTV for yourself, but when I was a teenager I had better things to do with my money. But now that I'm married I don't have to pay for it anymore. Actually that's not true I pay for it everyday, it just so happens that it is not cash I am spending on it now. Than God for a wife with a job!

Sunday Ticket is the greatest product ever invented. But then again, I'm biased.
