Bickering and condescending remarks removed. Infractions issued. Keep it civil.

This appears to be true.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

"In addition, every club will play on one Thursday following a Sunday game."

For that statement to happen the 13 NFLN games would have to be 26 different teams then addin the 6 thanksgiving teams & there are the 32 teams.

Since the cowboys always play thanksgiving that would fulfill their requirement so they wouldnt be on NFLN ever.

Thats a drawback for NFLN cause even when the cowboys arent a playoff team they still are a big tv draw -- 8 of the top 25 most viewed regular season games this year involved the cowboys.

well they better schedule around teams travel schedules. west/east coast teams shouldn't have to play a game on sunday and then fly across country to play an east/west coast team on thursday. they need to schedule teams that are reasonably geographically close to each other.

i thought i read that the teams that have to travel across country and play on a short week lose like 70% of the games.

Don't forget the opening week Thursday night game.

I'd look for NFLN to go to a 16 game schedule eventually.

Where are you quoting that from? The press release from page 1 says each team will play at least one primetime game, not necessarily Thursday night.

Also, I THINK, there will be NFL-N Thursday night games in weeks 2-15 (except Thanksgiving on NBC) PLUS one game on Saturday night in week 16 (probably the 22nd). That game has been the Dallas Cowboys each year since 2005 (and a road game every year but one). I guess, so the NFL Network can have a Cowboys game without having them play 2 Thursday games in a season. I can't think of a reason why they would have no Thursday or Saturday night game in week 16.

There is no week 16 or 17 thursday/saturday game -- its only 1-15 for NBC/NFLN.

& as far as the quote its in the 4th paragraph:

well the actual statement was

That means that all 32 teams will play at least one primetime game, the league said Friday

PRIMETIME not just Thursday night. So that's Sunday Night, Monday Night and Thursday Night.

The ACTUAL statement is:

"With the expansion of the Thursday Night Football schedule, all 32 NFL teams will now play at least one primetime game in 2012. In addition, every club will play on one Thursday following a Sunday game."

That's from the NFL press release.

So, let's stop bickering over what was and what wasn't in the statement. Six teams play on Thanksgiving which makes the math work for the Thursdays-following-a-Sunday clause. And, including the Thursday primetime games, all teams will get at least one primetime appearance. Every team will be seen in primetime. Every team will be seen on a Thursday.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
