We don't even get the Fox B-team. It's also appalling that the Bears at Lions game is getting wider distribution. What is it with the defending Super Bowl champs not getting primary distribution most of the time?

On the late game doubleheader Fox is still slobbering over the 3-8 Cowgirls as the game at the Colts is "America's Game of the Week" (instead of Falcons at Buccaneers) with once again the Fox A-team of Buck and Aikman. Let's just hope for an early blowout of the Girls so Fox can flip most of the country to the ATL@TB game

Well remember the last Bears-Lions game. It was awesome, plus they have the Calvin Johnson "No catch" to talk about. That and neither team is on an 8 game losing streak. As for Cowgirls-Colts...well...

Can't say I'm surprised. We're playing a team with the 2nd to worst record in the NFL.

I don't this is really an issue. Who to say what other people in other regions should watch. The real surprise is the fact that the Cowboys are still being force fed down majority of the country.

I am little fortunate living out of the country. I am able to receive the best match- ups regardless what the CBS or FOX thinks is the best match- ups.

I get to see Jacksonville @ Tennessee, Washington @ NY Giants, Oakland @ SD Chargers and Dallas @ Indianapolis. Nothing to write home about. Hopefully James will come through so I can watch our boyz put a raping on Cincinnati. WHO DAT!!

We get the Saints then the Bucs.... I feel a hangover comin' on


I do too. Only thing is that I would prefer the times were swapped on the games. I would rather watch Atlanta/Tampa game first then watch the Saints beat the Bengals. That way the afternoon is sure to end on a good note. With the way it is we could end up on a bad note if Atlanta wins after the Saints take care of their business in Cincinnatti.

Hoorah! I finally get to watch the Saints from the comfort of my own home again! I got spoiled after we started the season on national TV the first two weeks. Then I had to go find a spot to watch every weekend because we've either played at the same time as the Falcons or it was a Fox one-game week.

Nice to see the whole SE benefit from the ATL/TB flex and get to see Saints/Bengals. Not crazy about Ron Pitts but there is definitely worse.

Why does parts of North Dakota and Minnesota get the falcons/bucs instead of Dallas/Indy? It just seems strange how they choose the games for different areas.

If the station doesn't have a regional team the program director picks the game they think most likely to draw ratings. For a small market in North Dakota it might be something as simple as affiliation with a player. In the 1990's Bryson City in Western North Carolina was part of the Saints radio network because Heath Shuler grew up there.

Thanks, that clears that up.

The Bungles are blacked out at home, so half the people in Ohio will be watching Chicago at Detroit. :hihi:
