Direct TV NFL package is great.

Postby BadgerBengal » Mon Oct 17, 2005 5:09 pm

I dont know if this counts for cheering but I just want to say that Sundays are awesome with the NFL package on DirecTV. Watching all the games at crucial moments and having the computer on watching the FF football scores add up makes for enjoyable afternoons in the fall/winter(if your doing well). If you have the package what do you think about it. Modern technology has really improved the FF experience.

I've heard it was great and I wish I had it, being a newlywed nnow and just starting out, it's not right for us at the moment, but I hope that I'll get it eventually. My Sunday's aren't too bad but most of my guys I have aren't even on the games on the local channels, which is why I want the package.

I'm not paying 300 - 350 bucks for sunday ticket and the superfan package.

Back in the day, when it was 60-100...sure. Not a problem.

It is the only way for a Bengal fan from Wisconsin to see them, especially when the stunk over the past decade. I think it is worth every penny though if you love NFL football.

Yeah, I cough up the cash for the Sunday ticket, but no...I won't do the superfan thing. They get enough from me. It's ridiculous how pricy it's gotten. I have had Sunday ticket since '97.

I get enough games on TV for free ;-D Paying $300 isnt as bad as you think, getten 15 Vancouver canuck(hockey) games on PPV is over $150......... If you get every NFL game for $300 thats pretty good IMO....

I hate you all.

The_Dude would give his left nut for Sunday Ticket. I even had the Dudette talked into it for when we moved this year (since we'd essentially get it for free the first year when you sign up for DirecTV's top programming package). Anyhow, I worked hard to convince the Dudette that this was not a "bad" idea and then our new apartment complex tells us that they provide comcast basic cable for free.

The rouse was up...

Did I already say, "I hate you all." ?

I hate you all.
