NFL | DirecTV will not air games rescheduled due to weather

Alex Marvez, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports DirecTV Sunday Ticket will still not air any games originally scheduled for Sunday afternoons that need to be changed due to weather-related reasons. NFL publicity manager Seth Palansky said the blackouts come from an anti-trust law that prevents the NFL from televising games at the same time as college and high school games on Fridays and Saturdays.

I don't get it...it violates anti-trust laws concerning FRIDAY and SATURDAY college and high school games. Don't they reschedule the games to MONDAY? The only thing they would be interferring with is monday night football.....but whats wrong with letting people decide between the two games?!
