I think only the NFLN reporters will be their, its being simulcast on CBS and NBC....IMO they should either do that for all NFLN games or none, don't make special exceptions...

Luckly for me.

1.) I have to be in Washington on Saturday for a wedding and will not be watching said game.

2.) Penn State plays in the Alamo Bowl. So for those of you who are sick of the pats, Penn State and Texas A&M are going to be on at 8. You can watch two football teams who aren't a headache to put up with. Just good ol fashion football without a Patriots related subject.

NFLN, NBC & CBS - that's a bit much..... yeah, sure, I'd be pissed if it were the Steelers and I didn't have NFLN - but the fact that they are putting it on all three of those networks means only $$ is the motive..... it's ridiculous. They don't even do that for the Superbowl - so, suddenly the Patsies are bigger than the Superbowl?

Washington D.C. or Washington state?

EDIT: Never mind - it's probably Washington, PA.

Unfortunately, it is working.
Doesn't work for me. Once a cheat, always a cheat. Whether the Cheatsies go all the way to the SB or not, their record will always be tainted in my eyes and I will never respect Beliprick as an NFL coach.

NFL was getting pressure from Congress - lots of Pats fans in Vermont could not get the game on NFLN and their Senator (Leahy) is chairman of Senate Judiciary Committee and was threatening to hold hearings on the league's anti-trust exemption if the game was not put on over the air TV

The decision to have NBC and CBS give the NFL Network the exposure it has so far lacked came in the face of mounting Congressional pressure, a threat to examine the antitrust exemption the National Football League has to negotiate its television contracts.

?I think the pressure was one thing and that had an impact,? said Pat Bowlen, the owner of the Denver Broncos. ?But you look at the significance of the game, of New England possibly going undefeated, and we wanted it to be seen by the whole country.?

Representative Joseph Courtney, Democrat of Connecticut, praised the decision by N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell to expand the game?s availability. Without the simulcasts, tens of thousands of fans in the state ? which has loyalties divided between the Patriot and the Giants ? would not have seen the game.

?It was the right pressure point for Congress to step in and say to the N.F.L., ?You?re a protected industry and you have to look out for the best interests of the fans,?? he said.

Yep, it certainly hasn't been enough that we've had to listen to Patriots knob-slobbing EVERY GAME this season, whether the Pats were playing in it or not, has it?
