Is the NFL exempt from the Writer's strike? That NFL Championship Chase program obviously had to be written within the last week.

Is NFL Films a union shop?

You mean Tom Selleck isn't that eloquent, naturally?

I bet the NFL Players Union gets a cut on all NFL marketing and DVD sales.

Which has nothing to do with who writes for the NFL Films content.

I wouldn't have recognized his voice, except that I had been watching Las Vegas off my DVR before I saw the message about the show on CBS...

Most shows like this are written by the producers, or can easily be written by producers.

Watching OTA in Miami. PQ looks good but not the usual CBS high quality HD.


I wanted to see the coin toss today but they didn't show it. The girl that got booed at the game in Indy was to toss the coin. I wanted to see the crowd react.

Yes, that would have been interesting to see.

Looking good in Indianapolis from WISH-DT 8.1 1080i HD with Dolby Digital.


Just saw the Peyton Manning commercial for MasterCard. Yeah, Peyton, we're bummed the season is over for you, too.


Ooops, just had what looked like a video freeze and audio drop-out. Lasted about a second. May have been in the truck as they were switching shots.

Looks very good, and sounds great. I think the lighting is less than helpful today, with the mix of natural and artificial. It will be interesting to see if the images appear to look better as the natural light lessens.

Agree. PQ is not up to par.
