Don't get me started on how great Pat Kirwan is also, that guy is a freaking encyclopedia full of football information, it's amazing.

And it keeps you up to date on all the latest happenings in the league, sometimes before the stuff even comes out on the internet. Great way to fill the time in the offseason between mini-camp and training camp.
Meh, don't even get me started. Pisses me off more and more that I backed the wrong pony in the satellite field. :-#

Game of the Week

Postby anderbudd » Tue Jul 26, 2005 10:16 pm

NFL Network is the only thing that carries me through February to August. Yes, they do repeat programs too often. As ESPN does with Sportcenter, NFL Total Access, the news program, is played every single morning over and over from 4 AM to 11 AM. And yes, typically there is so little news that a big deal is made out of little things.

I have enjoyed their coverage of NFL Europe, just for the few real NFL players you get to see in action (GO AKILI SMITH!).

I think if I could change one thing about their format, it would be to rebroadcast games in their entirety over the course of the week, rather than in a 1 hour "Game of the Week," format. I'd much rather watch a game from start to finish than only the scoring drives interladen with inspirational music.

Another nice thing would be rebroadcasts of playoff games from previous years. Give me back Earl Campbell and the Steel Curtain, the Catch, and the Bills skunking the Oilers for the greatest comeback ever.

I don't want the drama - I just want to watch the game :~(

Oh, I've got DirecTV and the Sunday ticket, it's just that I chose XM over Sirius and I mean it was not more than a minute after I activated the POS that they announced a deal with the NFL. Now that Stern's going that way too, I'm going to ride out my XM contract and hop on Sirius early next year.

I dream of having access to NFL network. Obviously it's not available in Australia. Every offseason I wish I had recorded more reg season games from the prior season.
