  • On 12/2 they're keeping Cowboys/Eagles on. Really? That's going to be a garbage game.

  • FOX might have protected Seattle/Chicago .. and I'm sure CBS protected Pittsburgh/Baltimore, not to mention having that same game on NBC twice in three weeks seems like overkill.

    Those are really the only two games that stick out that week.

  • Fox got screwed a couple of times last year with the flex scheduling and I remember reading that they brought it up with the NFL in the offseason. I wouldn't be surprised if the protected SEA v CHI. That and the whole "media loves the Cowboys" thing.

  • Week 16, we have an excellent chance to get flexed to SNF.. as right now that game is San Diego at the Jets (lol), and FOX could slide New Orleans-Dallas to the late game slot to fill the void left by 49ers at Seahawks.

  • Dec 23 SF @ SEA has a strong possibility of getting Flexed to Prime Time.

    SF #1 PPG Allowed, #2 YPG Allowed
    SEA #2 PPG Allowed, #3 YPG Allowed

    It's a solid intriguing matchup. They can talk up the whole hatred between Hardballz and Carroll all week.

    Hardballz lol that's a good nickname for Harbaugh. Not offensive, but funny and makes sense.

    Can't wait for that game! :)

    And you guys are forgetting, that game could be for the division.........

  • Sea v San Fran seems like a good prime time matchup. I would think that the NFL would want to showcase the atmosphere of the Clink more in primetime, and there will be no more exciting matchup than the 49ers game.

  • I don't think SF @ Sea will go to SNF...because the Week before [Wk 15] is 49ers at Patriots on SNF. That game will definitely not be flexed out...and I do not think they would put on SF two weeks in a row on SNF.

    Or they could "give the country what they want"... which is more Cowboys! Everybody loves the Cowboys!

    Hopefully you are right, because on paper and logically it should be that way. Then again, nothing would surprise me with the NFL and it's handling of all things even semi-Seattle related.

    Bears just played on SNF and then MNF the following week, let's hope that the NFL follows the same precedent here and flexes us in for Week 16!

  • Yeah I don't think this is a media bias thing, more of a FOX and CBS want to protect their mid day national game of the week thing.

    Does anyone know if NBC has to compensate the other channels for "flexing" a game from them?

    I'm pretty sure the answer is no there is no compensation. The NFL has given both FOX and CBS a certain number of games that they can block from being flexed each season. This way they can keep the best matches on their networks, but NBC can still find a game that has playoff implications to generate interest in that game.

  • BTW, I hate the title of this thread, and am disappointed that the other thread was locked... I had no idea anything of interest was being discussed in this thread, as my eyes just glaze over whenever anyone claims East Coast Media Bias... anyhoo, take a look here

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/w ... ams/1.html

    Don specifically calls out Week 16 our game vs 49ers and the Cowboys Saints game. I would expect FOX to protect the Cowboys Saints game as it features two really big media markets plus it's quite likely that game will have playoff implications... I would be floored if FOX protected our game. It seems to me to be a lock for one of those two games to end up on SNF.

    NBC is after ratings basically.. duplicate teams don't phase them when they're allowed to flex games.

    Now, FOX may very well hoard SF/SEA for their own too. That's a doubleheader weekend for them and as it stands now.. we're definitely the national game for them that weekend.

    But NBC aired BOTH Dallas/NY Giants games last season.. so them airing consecutive 49ers games isn't out of the question. It just depends on which game FOX protects that week.
