    Don't be so quick to knock us in prime time, last year we had over 5.5 million viewers vs the Steelers. Of course the majority of those viewers were probably Pittsburgh fans, but hey, we beat out MLB Playoffs, Jersey Shore and the VP Debate that night.

    I actually prefer the daytime games. I don't care if the country sees the Titans, and how much exposure they get.

    nobody wants to watch MLB playoffs until a title clinching game in the World Series. Jersey shore was on its last leg then, and the VP debate was probably unwatchable, and the whole election was one of the most lopsided,awful, and uninteresting things of all time.

    I did go to the game, though. Paid 20 dollars for a ticket, lol.

    With that MNF game last year.. I had to take off of work a bit early, drive there 2 hours, get stuck in traffic while missing the entire tailgate (add another 30 minutes on), rush in to get there before kickoff, watch the game til about 10 or whatever it was, then drive 2 hours back and have to be at work the next morning.

    I'd rather get up at 7am, drive down and tailgate for a few hours, watch long and sometimes unentertaining game, then get dinner downtown, enjoy the evening, then get home about 7.

    It's just better.

    100% chance of Thursday night game (every team gets at least one)
    5% chance of Monday night game
    0% chance of Sunday night game

    Agreed, I prefer the noon games as well. But it is nice to have a good primetime every now and then, especially when we're good, and playing another good team.

    Do you know what the worst day of the year is? Daylight savings time in the fall. We have to wait an extra hour! :gaah:

    sounds about right.
    If you were a casual football fan (unbiased), where would the Titans rank on your list of "to watch?"
    top 10? not a chance
    top 15? Doubt it
    top 20? possibly
    top 30? probably

    I couldn't even stomach to watch them for most of the season last year, and I have a vested interest in the team.

    Nobody without a connection to the Titans, wants to see the Titans. Would rather have no primetime games than forcefeeding the public the Titans out of pity, like they do with the Jags year after year.

    I was glad to see the Jags on primetime last season.. seeing how empty their stadium was made me feel better about ours. :biggrin2:
