NFL Network bashing again...sorry

Postby dgan » Wed Dec 27, 2006 9:42 am

Not really bashing NFL Network. Blame who you want. But this Giants/Redskins game has playoff implications on half the teams in the NFC. Now I have to go find a place to watch it.

Sucks. :-t

I'm in the same boat, but looking to make it into a positive. Since me and four of my other buddies don't have NFL Network, we are FORCED to go to Hooters or another local establishment to watch. It's our only option!!! ;-D

On second thought, I make a motion that ALL NFL games can only be seen at the nudy bar!! Imagine the fun......

Well, I'll be getting it locally because I'm in the NYC area, but yeah, I don't like the fact that NFL network isn't widely available yet

I saw the Cowboys/Falcons game on NFL Network because it was local here but i have to rant that the game calling is just horrid!! NFL Network needs to get rid of Brian Gumble because he sucks!!!

at one time i could swear he said "shot clock" instead of "play clock"

wtf!!

Heh I am happy to be in the Skins market so I will see the game. I'll be rooting for the Skins for the Pack though for sure! ;-D

Well if you aren't in the local market you aren't getting it anyway. If network didn't carry it, you wouldn't even have the opportunity to watch it, at least that's my thinking. :-?

I have NFL Network, and absolutely love it. Don't worry guys, by next year, you all should be able to get it.

Sorry man, but Gumble/Collinsworth are a better announcing team than 95% of the teams on the regular networks hands down, and Vermeil is much more interesting as an analyst than most of the others too. At least they try to call the game when the action is happening rather than overriding the game with their pre-canned storylines etc, and they try not to talk over each other all the time.

Look at the bright side, you don't have to listen to Gumble and Collinsworth. ;-D
