No. The NFL wants to be in your TV 24-7. Cable companies need to recognize that football is America's number-one game now, and enough of America wants to know about it all year--and all the time--to warrant an NFL channel in the basic package.
(I thought as much before
the league came out with what amounts to a propaganda page
for its channel.)
The Senate is getting involved now, blackmailing the NFL with its antitrust exemption. It's one big cluster-"fluff". I just go to the sports bar; $10-ish for dinner, a seat at the bar, and a view of the game.
The sports bar is all sugar and spice unless you happen to be under 21 like me... Sometimes I can get into a few of the big sports joints around here, like I did tonight for the first half of this game, but once my friends get bored I've got little choice but to sit at a huge table all by myself (awkward) or come home and try to watch the game on nfl.com.
I just don't understand why the NFL Network isn't available on Time Warner and other major cable providers... Or why nfl.com's live coverage of these exclusive games amounts to 95% extraneous commentary and 5% actual game coverage.
But anyway, good game Steelers... And good luck Willie Parker with a speedy recovery, or at least one that's complete
