NFL Television Coverage - RANT

It's really really really really really really really really fucking annoying that I can't get the 'burgh & Jets game on any form of a local or satelite channel. I can only get the local FOX game which is Packers vs. Lions.

I know the feeling, I never get to watch my Chargers play and am also stuck watching the Packers and Lions.

There is a website that has links to free streaming content of NFL games, which can be found HERE.

It's really fucking annoying that no cable company offers NFL ticket either. It's even more fucking annoying that they show "all in the family" reruns instead of the Raider Falcon game, not that it was much of a game anyway. God damn sparrows.

I never really understood that either. I live in LA and all we get are Chargers or Raiders games. (no offens guys) but I don't want to watch that.

Who's in charge of this stuff and how come they're not fired?

We are lucky in the LA market because we do usually get the best games of the week, like Jets/Steelers this afternoon. Since it was a FOX doubleheader weekend and not a CBS doubleheader, they chose the better game instead of the Raiders/Falcons like they normally would.

The reason why we get most of the Raiders/Chargers games is because the Raiders are by far the most popular team still in LA, and the Chargers have a decent fan base too.

You know, I always thought it was weird cause we don't even have a football team and then they "decide" what game to put on. The NFL programming (or is it the broadcast people) have a weird methodology to their programming.

I think it would be better if they had some more carriers, even on cable or whatever as opposed to NFL ticket thingy which isn't even that great (I think).

It used to be so much simpler. *sigh*

NBA is ok though. There's a decent selection of games usually and stuff. Baseball too.

Eh, we'll see. Thanks for the info.

HAHA!! Yeah...I live in Cincinnati and ya know I have no choice but to accept that semi-professional football is a way of life. I do however believe that the NFL is played on Sunday's in other cities....I'd just like to be able to see it live!

I'm in la as well, and we do get most of the Raider games on CBS, but the problem is, we only get them if they are playing well or have playoff hopes, otherwise we get stuck with some Patsie game or TV re-runs. I've had to go to a damn sports bar the last two weeks just to watch the games, and quite frankly, I hate going into those drunk filled fake fan places. Chances are another Raider game won't be televised unless the the season is on the line for the opposing team.

CBS coverage sucks as well, but its better than nothing.

Even worse than the choice/selection of games, my local "canadian station that carries an american signal" opted, instead of showing the last 10 minutes of the Packers game yesterday, to switch to Malcolm in the Middle.

Seriously.

Ugh! I hate that....they do it all the time. If the game is going into overtime all of a sudden it gets cut off. *shakes head*

Where I live in MD, CBS always airs the Ravens (except once or twice when Fox broadcasts, and Sun/Mon night games).

When the Ravens are not on, or its a double header, CBS only broadcasts other AFC North games, like Cinci vs Cle. I will never get to see a Indy vs KC game, except for final minute bonus coverage.

Fox always broadcasts the Redskins, even though they have sucked for a long time.

Cross-Over, I think the 'Skins game maybe because of where you live. Fox here in NE Ohio is pretty decent in showing different teams every week.

The AFC North thing must be part of the broadcast rules because that is how it is here also. (Only usually it's a Pitt game rather than a Bengals.) Same with the radio station that carries Browns games, if they have a late game or Sun/Mon night game, the radio station plays AFC North (again usually Pitt, sometimes Bengals)

Just have to deal with it. Like baseball telecasts on Fox or ESPN are always like a choice of maybe 5-6 teams and the rest are SOL.

That is right, the Skins games are because of location. The Ravens weren't around for a long time, there are still a large number of Skins fans in MD.
It definitely is a "rules" thing with CBS too, but it's no big deal. During the semester I usually only have time for one game anyways, and the Ravens are always on.
