yeah I agree, i'm gonna miss a thanksgiving NFL game for the first time in 10 years...to protest I will not watch a single NFL game all year. Well, maybe not.
I saw this press release earlier today, and other than those who are unlucky enough to not get NFL Network, I'm reading the article differently and see it all as extremely positive. It says the inaugural game of this package is Thanksgiving NIGHT as a part of a Thanksgiving Day triple header.
So, doesn't that sound like the regular 2 Thanksgiving games on regular network, and then another (third) game Thanksgiving evening on NFL network?
Sounds great to me!
Plus, the Thursday and Saturday night games in prime time....that's great IMO. Less channel switching on Sundays, and more time to concentrate on "extra" games on Thursday and/or Saturday nights. The Sunday Ticket NFL on Direct TV is great, but it's hard to choose between games on Sundays. This way we can get to watch some extra games during the week without competition of other games on other channels.
