Re: Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

The NFL is also trying to work in all division games at the end of the season as per the competition committee's report to make the end of season games more meaningful.
I think they had to start all over again from scratch at the owner's meeting because they want to reduce teams giving games away in the final weeks.

-Franchise QB gets traded at the last minute before the schedule is set to be announced
-Traveling distance for teams and networks
Im pretty sure you dont have to schedule around the 100 people that show up for an Orioles game.

The Orioles won't ever be playing past September anyways. They'll be in the way for 2 weeks tops if the Ravens are at home for the first few weeks of the season.

It's not the Orioles you have to worry about in B-More, it's the thugs in gangs and some of their cops who behave like thugs in gangs.

Stay near the harbor and out of the porn district and you'll be fine. I made the mistake of parking there once...

Re: Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

i understand. trying to figure out a way to put more than 6 regular season redskins games in primetime is difficult work.

i'd settle for 4 primetime redskins games and 12 4PM games.

Re: Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

It would not surprise me if they didn't have us playing the Eagles on opening night. I remember when we had that big trade with Coles we played them on opening night.

Re: Cowboys at Redskins in Season Opener?

with shanahan and mcnabb, we should atleast get 3 primetimers and 5 4PM games... that would limit me having to go to a sportsbar to watch gams to only 8.

well i only pay for basic cable ($8/month. My media center PC acts as my DVR and i watch everything thats not on basic cable via a hulu media center plug-in). So, DirectTV with Sunday ticket would cost me A LOT more a month than i'm paying for TV now. going to a sports bar and getting wings and a couple beers will only cost me about $25-30 bucks per game. thats alot cheaper than the alternative.

now, if any of you guys have an HDslingbox i could tap into, i'd be much obliged. :-)

no, its just the basic package that all cabe providers are required to provide by law. i get about 27 channels, but only 7 are worth anything - abc, nbc, cbs, fox, cw, wrdc, and one i'm forgetting... all in HD. pretty much every show on cable worth watching is on hulu. its a tad inconvenient to not be able to watch some cable programs live, but its certainly worth it since i'm not paying 80+ bucks a month for TV. the only thing i really miss is ESPN - i've got no way to watch MNF games at home. fortunately, my best friend only lives one block away.

You mean we have to wait almost another week to find out when games will be played months from now? What an outrage.
