The NFL should show every game. Just like the NCAA. Local Areas should schedule based on their times and everyone network show have a contract of some kind. Essentially every major NCAA game is nationally televised. The NFL should be too.


They do.

It's called SportsCenter.

They also have NFL packages for DirecTV, Comcast, Cox, hell... everybody has an NFL package!

It's called turning on the TV and looking.


You know what really grinds my gears?

The fact that I live in Japan (Air Force) and I have the crappiest internet known to man. I mean, Mediatti Broadband Company makes old-school AOL look like Usain Bolt!

Wanna know what my download speed is? 212 KBPS..... KILOBYTES!!!

The best part about it? It's only crappy internet ON BASE. Everyone else off base has super fast internet. They're even offering download speeds of 1 TBPS (how is that even possible???)

But no, the military is a bunch of poor mofo's that can't even get us some better internet out here.

:( that is a sad angry face.

Thank you.


Forfeited Turn


Well I guess I should have seen that coming....

You know what else really grinds my gears?

Tony Reagins and Mickey Hatcher.

Let's discuss Tony Reagins....

Gary Matthews, Jr.- Enough said

Torii Hunter- Good move to sign him, but for way too much

Vernon Wells- REALLY?????

His one saving grace? Fleecing AZ for Dan Haren (although they're in first place and we're not...)


Mickey Hatcher on the other hand has a LONG LIST OF FAILURES

Brandon Wood
Jeff Mathis
Dallas McPherson
Vernon Wells
and I could list more but I'm lazy

His one saving grace?

The Angels led the league 3 times in BA since he's been hitting coach... but I'm sorry, he's either lost his touch or the Angels just suck that bad.

Either way, heads need to roll in big A.

And that is what grinds my gears.

The NFL does show every game, if you buy their program package on Direct TV.

i should have been more detialed, it should be on regualr TV like with the NCAA, and they should use TV schedule /local market times where every game but 2 per week is not on at either 1e or 4e....

The NCAA also allows schools to employ pay-per-view for certain broadcasts, which is something that I wish the NFL would use. I can't switch from Time-Warner because I have no place to put a dish. But, I would gladly pay to watch my team when they weren't on the national or local broadcast.

I just don't think the NFL will ever do this. There simply is no money to be made broadcasting Panthers - Bills (for example) to a national audience when the only 2 places that would watch that game are getting it locally.

What type of TV programming do you have? Because I've never been able to watch ever NCAA game on in one day!

Not enough money to be made and not enough regular channels to show the games live.

Had the NFL REDZONE as part of the NFL Network package with my cable up until last year when they told me I would have to pay an extra $40 a month in order to offset the cost that they would have to pay.The NFL wants you to pay for everything they show.And the owners cry broke!!!What a crock !!!!!
