Re: Friday Night Football

If they moved NFL games to Fridays it would kill the free farm system. That's why no Friday/Saturday games. Keep the good 'ol High School/College feeder system alive and kicking.

Besides, down here in Texas, Friday night football is sacred.

Exactly, everytime I have seen an NFL game moved because of weather, it seems to only be televised in local markets. I will be extremely surprised if anyone carries the game nationally.

Re: Friday Night Football

They announced that only Kansas City and Miami markets will get the game. I'm not sure if those with NFL Sunday Ticket will get the game. I'm pretty sure they will be getting it, as we did the Titans/Dolphins last year.

I hope so. If it was a Redskins game I would be pissed if NFL sunday ticket didn't show the game. That's what I pay 200 bucks for. I think they will show it.

I think the NFL agreed to this in exchange for a law exempting their merger with the AFL from antitrust review.

Yeah, Friday Night is High School football night - and Saturday is College Football! I think having NFL games on Sunday is the best option.

Yep. I'd be absolutley beside myself. That said, I think the contract states that they get to show all the games as long as its not a local blackout, so I'm pretty sure KC/Miami fans will be good.

Re: Friday Night Football

No national tv for the game. It will only be on in Miami & KC.

Re: Friday Night Football

Yeah, I too would love a Wed. or Thurs. night game. There's so many games each week, it would be pretty bad ass to have a nationally televised weeknight game twice a week.

Which I find absolutely crazy. Does CBS think "The Ghost Whisperer" is going to outdraw the NFL?

I agree. I would have thought at least the NFL network or direct tv would have the game but I guess not.

Re: Friday Night Football

Probably too short notice to change the schedule's around. I'm sure it takes some time to get together a camera crew.
