Giants and Jets are always sold out. It happened a few times to Carolina when I first relocated down here though.

yeah, i didn't think that was the case... too many d@mn people in NY not to sell out every game.

the nice thing about not having a team in the LA market is . . . NO BLACKOUTS. guaranteed three network games each week + the espn sunday night + MNF on ABC :)

too bad they want to bring a team here.

do you really think if LA gets a team (especially the Colts), they won't sell out? You'd get the games... and aren't you sick of watching Oakland?

In North Carolina, we get every Panthers game, and two other games One station always has a doubleheader, and the other always has just one game. For example, this week we get Baltimore @ Philadelphia on CBS at 1, then Pats at steelers on CBS at 4 and the Panthers game on Fox. Usually the best matchup is shown in those other games, but for some reason a lot of times the Dolphins and Redskins get special treatment.

I think it has to do with being called a "double header" sunday.

I guess they are treating NY as a single market team for this week, and since the Giants are away, and exception is allowed.

This is pretty byzantine though, and I hate it. It shouldn't be this hard to watch your favorite team.

I have to disagree. Considering you're an Egirls fan behind enemy lines it should indeed be that difficult. ;-)

I think maybe the G-Men game is on at 1:00pm on FOX and the Jets game is on 4:00pm on CBS... Last week they had the GB game on... They may just be looking to get some more viewers, I've seen it happen before.
