Nice to have you back Homcom, and great to have the NFL back.

I see Marv Albert is calling NFL games again.

Sad to hear that Joe Buck is still employed. Also, Fox is going to give even more time (and a Twitter feed) to that ******* dancing robot.

This is why I need Sunday Ticket. I get to watch the BS bengals vs browns game instead of Pittsburgh vs Baltimore. Absolutely ridiculous! I can't even tell you how much I hate this system.

Shouldn't San Diego be grey (no game) for early Fox game, since Chargers are at home vs. Vikings? Unless special dispensation because it's week one of the season?

UPDATE: I checked local news paper site and it pretty much looks like the blackout will be lifted.

why? SD is on FOX as the late game of the doubleheader

If I'm not mistaken, if you have Directv, there is a free preview weekend of Sunday Ticket so you can watch any game you want.

If you have a PS3, you can get Sunday Ticket for $340/year. The payment plan is $84.99/month for 4 months.

As long as you have a playstation Network Account, at least $345 in your accounts wallet, or a CC listed(not needed), then you can stream NFL Ticket on your PS3.

Also, I owuld have a broadband internet speed of an "average" of 4.0Mbps-6.0Mbps download speed. That is just my opinion though.

The only time you'll see a grey shade in San Diego is a) the Chargers dont sellout (for a tv game in the 10am PT slot) or b) if the doubleheader network doesn't have the rights to the Charger home game (since NFL rules only allow the home team's game on tv in the home team's primary media market).

Before anyone asks - like previous years, these threads will be stuck on Thursday or Friday each week.

Agree with both parts wholeheartedly! I'm just happy they are doing the Giants/Skins instead of the Eagles. Seems like every Eagles game I watch has that pair.

I agree with both of u. It's unbelievable that they let that bias announcer do national games. That guy can't fly west to save his life and it should stay that way.

Buck is so bad, he makes me appreciate Aikman.

When its a fox dh buck/aik will almost always do the 4:15 national game just like they will do gb/chi week 3.

The game is only being shown in the bengals and browns designated markets, so You are in the same boat as any other out of market fan.

I would not be surprised to see the NFL move to a similar model that the big ten has put forth for what used to be regional coverage of big ten games. Still keep the games on local Ota, but then reverse mirror them on the NFL network.

I really can't see regional only coverage lasting much longer with the NFL.

Not many areas worse than Harrisburg, PA. A VERY heavy Steelers market that is a secondary market for the Ravens.

Yes, I am in Ohio, hence my complaints At least before in NEO we got another affiliate who showed Steelers games so my parents probably will be able to watch. I am in Cbus now and I just get bengals and browns crap. It's just going to keep pushing me more toward college - where I get to see every game for price of a cable subscription (if that)

Later in the season, when the Ohio teams are 3-6 or whatever, they will show Steelers over Browns or Bengals in the Columbus market. But not when they play each other.

Fans or not, 200+ miles to Pittsburgh, 70 miles to Baltimore.

Bizarre to see that MIN/SD won't be on in Los Angeles (or anywhere in California except for SD). Do FOX stations have local authority to pick their game? (i.e. is it a waste of time to bombard the FOX LA GM with calls over the next few days?)

I don't see the current system changing as long as DirecTV keeps showing up to the ST negotiations with a dump truck full of money.

I think when the game sells out (which it eventually will) LA will then pick it up.
post #24 of 55
If I was hedging a bet, Fox 11/KTTV Los Angeles will not switch to the MIN/SD & keep the NYG/WSH game as scheduled even if the game in San Diego does sellout.

By the way, the MIN/SD game has been officially announced as a sellout in San Diego.

And are the fans supposed to switch their generations of support for one team, to an out of state team (especially the Baltimore Browns) because it is closer geographically?

Doesn't matter. I'm 300 miles from NYC and they show the Jets here if the Bills aren't a conflict; I've never met a Jets fan in this area in my life.

The point is that Steeler fans are not entitled to see their team on local TV when they're closer to Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington and the New York teams than they are from Pittsburgh.

And there was an NFL team in Baltimore before 1984, and by all accounts, this was when the Steelers took over. And that Harrisburg DMA goes to the MD border to areas within 35 miles of M&T Bank Stadium.

First - I never said anybody was entitled, only that it is an area that has an overwhelming number of fans for one team that is not their designated market team.

Second - I'm not sure where you are getting these "accounts", but I graduated HS in Harrisburg in 1984 and it was - and had been for many years - a solid Steelers territory. They also didn't have the same rules back then, so the Steelers were frequently aired locally.

State lines are far more important to people's fandom than geography "as the crow flies". Even NE PA is generally split between Steelers and Eagles fans.

Good luck finding a Redskins, Jets, Giants, Ravens, or Eagles bar in Harrisburg. If you do, you could probably afford to buy everyone in it their next round.

It should be about fanbase, not distance.
