  • Can the NFL spend anymore effort shoving Dallas down our throats. Even in NC where the local team is the Panthers, we can't view the fellow NFC South's Atlanta game. Absurd. Thought for sure I'd be able to see it this week.

  • Yeah man if I had to live away from the Pacific Northwest there's no way I would not have Sunday Ticket. Even if I had to beg, borrow and steal.

    Word. This is the 3rd game in a row that if I didn't have ST, I wouldn't see the game.

    I just wish the NFL would quit giving the monopoly to DirecTv.

    To be fair it's the same sort of matchup as ours. 4-1 vs 3-1. And like it or not, Dallas and Green Bay draw huge ratings. I doubt Fox anticipated Atlanta having a hot start

    I agree. The Cowboys are basically FOX's 'home team' and most of the time have the #1 announcing crew no matter how they're doing.

    I'm in the Tampa area on vacation (I live in Atlanta) and like NC, instead of showing the Falcons who are in the same division as Tampa Bay, they have Dallas/Green Bay here. So I'm going to have to go to a sports bar to watch it.

    Dallas? What about GB? GB has had 2 night games allready and outside of a few areas will be on TV AGAIN for most of the country. They will also be playing next week for TNF....so....3 of 6 games for sure EVERYONE got to see, and basically 4 for everyone that isnt next to Seattle or Atl. I live around Portland and I would say aside from the Seahawks the Packers are BY FAR on more than almost any other team almost every single year

    Week 1 against the Jags in the PNW the Packers were on FOX EARLY
    Week 2 they played Vikings in primetime
    Week 3 they played lions which wasnt really showed outside midwest
    Week 4 bye
    Week 5 giants in primetime
    Week 6 cowboys which isnt quite primetime but will be on for everyone outside seattle and atltanta area
    Week 7 Thursday Night against the Bears

  • I have no problem with the GB being shown over us. Before the season started, who would have thought ATL would be good. GB vs Dallas are big name teams, they draw more money. Simple as that.

    And they just flexed the GB v ATL (week 8 ) to the 4:25 Sunday slot on FOX and moved CAR/AZ to 1:00. People will get more than their fill of GB :pukeface:

    So if I was a GB fan in the portland area the only games I would miss this season up to that point would of been the Cowboy and Lions games....out of 7 games....

    I could see them being on week 9 too if Indy rebounds....Luck vs Rodgers ratings. If CBS has the late game around here the only other game it would compete with is Chargers/Titans...That might be a tough one to replace in the portland area because west coast team and Mariota

    Week 11 they are primetime Sunday against Redskins.
    Week 12 they are primetime Monday against Eagles
    Week 14 they play Seattle
    Week 16 they play Vikings which im sure will be on since its probably going to be for the Division or a very meaningful game

    But even if they are made on a week to week basis, the Boys vs Pack is a great matchup. Both teams only have one loss. Tie breaker goes to them because they are more popular teams nationally.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think it is a bad matchup. I do, however, think the NFL would benefit from the maps being a bit more evenly split. They have two good games at the same time and are practically burying one of them.

  • Aren't there limits to national SNF Games? We're on there 4 times already right? Plus we've got a Monday nighter in there too. There is a limit, but I dunno what it is. Someone here knows. I think it would have been a no-brainer flex for sure. Hawks/Atlanta=Biggest, coolest game of the week... IMHO.... (homer opinion) lol But I think the reason we weren't even considered for a flex is that we are at our limit for national prime-time games. I'm, uh, good with that... heh heh And it's mega-cool that they compacted them in our last 11 games. Awesome. You guys do realize we play the Cards in AZ after the Falcons, right? Another HUGE game.... WHOOHOOO!!!! GOD I love football season!!! :179417:

    I don't have directTV either but I was able to purchase NFL Sunday Ticket online and watch all the games online.

    https://nflst.directv.com/


    It's $50 a month but I live in San Francisco and can't watch the Hawks unless I go to a bar. $50 a month is kind of expensive but if you think about it I usually spend at least $50 every weekend going to a bar just to watch the game anyway. Plus there is no contract for DirectTV.

    I love it, I have lived in the Bay Area since 2012 and have always had to go to a local bar to watch the Hawks or even further for a Seahawks bar plus wake up early to get a good seat... Now I can kick it at my house and watch the game every weekend in HD!

    GREATEST!

    According to the story last year about prime time games, All teams were allowed only 4 prime time games. If one team only had 3 and that did not max them out, then they could flex that team to a prime game. Afternoon games are not prime time games, just a change of venue. There were teams that were in positions to make a run at their respective divisions and they were allowed to flex them for the ratings (dont ask how, I assume it is in the NFL contracts loophole, et al.....Goodell rules).



    Snipes post.....

    If you have the card capability, you could probably put a DVR attached to the video and audio out and record it as well. Then watch it on your tv. Still working on doing that with my Vid card to tv using HDMI capability off the secondary output from my vid card. Not sure if the audio will go to DVR yet as I have not done it yet.

    You do realize the Seahawks have the most primetime games this season right?

    Contrary to popular belief, the Seahawks are actually on national TV a whole lot now.

    I mean at least that one actually makes sense. That Panthers/Cardinals game was the only NFC game at 4. You would have to agree that GB/Atanta is a more compelling match up, especially with the records.

    I'm not one of those fans. I don't believe or want the Seahawks (or any other team) to be on SNF every week. My response was about GB being on so many national games especially so close together.

    Yes, GB v ATL is a much better game to watch.

    Actually it would be illegal but the Sports Broadcasting Act of 1961 gave the NFL an antitrust exemption that allows them to pool TV rights.

  • I know everyone hates the Cowboys, myself included........but they are routinely the biggest fan base each year when you take into account sellouts, fan's that travel, TV ratings and merchandise sales.

    So of course the NFL and networks are going to put them on as much as they can in prime time.

    But hell, as an older fan that remembers when Bigfoot or Loch Ness sightings were more frequent than the Hawks being on prime time........I'll take 3-4 games a year every year.
