Why is the same football game on 2 channels?
There should be no football at all when my head hurts.

2. NFL to Air Patriots Game on CBS, NBC
http://www.tvweek.com/news/2007/12/nfl_to_air_patriots_...

The NFL, under pressure because many cable subscribers were not going to be able to see the potentially historic New England Patriots game on Saturday, has arranged for CBS and NBC to simulcast the game. The game originally was going to air nationally exclusively on the NFL Network.

The Patriots, with a 15-0 record, will be trying to become the first team to go undefeated since the leagues schedule was expanded to 16 games. They are playing against the New York Giants.

We have taken this extraordinary step because it is in the best interest of our fans, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. What we have seen for the past year is a very strong consumer demand for NFL Network. We appreciate CBS and NBC delivering the NFL Network telecast on Saturday night to the broad audience that deserves to see this potentially historic game.

More....

I hope you feel better soon! Take some Tylenol! Turn off the TV! ;)

15. Ithaca might be a bit of a drive, I'm over near Rochester.
Edited on Sat Dec-29-07 07:03 PM by DarkTirade
But I'm certainly interested. :P I finally got an amp this afternoon and other than a quick break for dinner, I haven't put the bass down yet. My fingers are starting to get a little raw... maybe I should give it a break for a minute...

I like the name though. What style do they do? :)

17. Hmm... fast and heavy.
Might be a good way to get me into bass playing pretty quickly. I usually prefer intelligible vocals (although not necessarily lyrics... I first started listening to rock in the grunge era. :) ) but I'm willing to try just about anything.

4. my son says it's on 3 channels!
and this is the most networks showing the same game since 1967 - yes, he knows too many sports statistics - or too many bits of commentator info!

12. Because, according to some people,
the inability to watch 3 tons of muscle, bone and plastic collide over an oddly-shaped brown object is the end of the world as they know it.

So the networks caved.

18. I don't understand why *two* of 'em caved
Edited on Sat Dec-29-07 07:21 PM by Oeditpus Rex
I mean, fuck are there actually people who can't get a CBS or NBC affiliate? :shrug:



Edit: Seems it was the NFL that caved, not the networks. Don't know what I was thinking. :blush:

20. Yeah, but the networks had to give -- they had to alter
their originally scheduled programming. They probably had to pre-empt *gasp* paid programming to get the game on.

21. All I know is
CBS was supposed to air "Good Night, and Good Luck" tonight, but my teevee guide ain't showin' it.

Then again, my teevee guide has Teh Herstoric Game on KPIX at 8 p.m. :shrug:

Yeah, that girl's got it.



It's apparently not gonna be on the CBS affiliate in Monterey. I'm hoping the teevee guide screwup means it's gonna be on the one in San Francisco, but I'm not holding my breath.

I can watch this game on any of four channels, and all I got's an antenna. :eyes:
