Thank goodness I have NFL Network because this Cowboys-Packers game is a goodie.
There’s been some rumbling in the past few days leading up to this game about the NFL bogarting games and how un-frickin-fair it is that everyone is being deprived a great game. As if it’s the NFL’s fault. Everyone’s pissed at the NFL. Boo-frickin-hoo.
How come no one seemed to care about games being aired exclusively on NFL Network last season? Oh yeah, because NFL Network was standard with Comcast’s digital cable last season. Then, Comcast decided to cash in and make a little extra bank on the network – made it a special package. Now, instead of just getting the NFL Network standard, we have to pay an extra $5 or something bucks a month for the sports tier package. As if we are going to even spend five minutes watching the high school sports network or the college sports network or even the NBA Network. It’s like being told if you want HBO you have to pay for Showtime, too. My point is, how come no one’s angry at Comcast? Why is all this recent rumbling directed toward the NFL?
Games are the NFL’s product. Why can’t they exclusively air a game or too? And when this game was scheduled, did anyone really realize how big it would be? I don’t know.
What I do know is tomorrow is November 30, meaning the last day of NaBloPoMo and this post qualifies as #29. Almost done!
I just noticed, you can watch the game live online at NFL Live (albeit, about 20 seconds behind but not bad). How frickin’ cool! That means on nights when my boyfriend fights for the TV, I can still watch! I hope they do this again! Maybe for Monday night games too.
