    I guess THursday nights are good business because it is another broadcast contract. Even though t NFL Network is doing it the NFL get the advertising dollars.

    I've wondered why they put these on the NFL as opposed to selling the games to another network.

    On the one hand it probably adds significant value to the NFLN and overall marketing. But I bet they could make more money selling it to a major network.

    The other thing that irks me is TWC doesn't have the NFL Network.

    I like it. To me, we aren't over-saturated with the NFL yet. I like it all: Sunday early, late and night games, MNF and Thursday football. I like it just fine. If it's a stink game, then turn the channel. (Some of the national games have been unwatchable, I will admit that. Even the announcers admitted how bad the game was last week. You never hear announcers saying, "This game is unwatchable" but they actually said that.

    $$

    they protect college ball as much as they do HS ball so no saturdays until right before the bowl games

    I think it's a good idea. I'm with those who think it could be "too much" football... In a more ideal world, I actually think MNF should just morph into TNF. But I think it's a good "get-together" sort of thing. Grab a six-pack or growler, call your buddy over, and watch a game... Then, go home and go to work.

    Some good news for you today, flip...Just got a text from Brandon from Missouri this morning (The Commish from Sirius NFL Radio) that Time Warner Cable and the NFL Network have finally reached a deal (which would include the Red Zone Channel as well).

    When I first read your post, the first thing that I thought was, "Why would The Weather Channel have the NFL Network?"


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I just signed up for our cable's upgrade to NFL network, so will now get Thursday's games.... it was pretty cheap. We'll see how it goes this season on whether I stay with it.

    I have no problem with the way it is.

    What i do have an issue with is having the Thursday night game so close to the bye week. That was always like a mini-bye week to me. But this year we will have 10 more games remaining and no "breaks".

    Wish THEY would start using some common sense once in a while. With all this talk of safety you think this would be a no-brainer when it comes to scheduling. idk...
