    I was curious if you guys find it harder, or less convenient, to watch the games when they aren't scheduled at noon (Central)? This will be the 3rd game in a row starting at 3:00 or later and to me it just seems like the worst time to start a game. You can't get much done in the afternoon because it starts in the middle of the afternoon, and it ends too late to really get much done at night.

    I also thought the reason for rescheduling the games at 3:00 was so the best matchups could be highlighted so fans of other teams, who play at noon, could still watch. I don't think any of these last few games meet that criteria.

    Going into this year I had not failed to watch a Titans game live in 8 years, now for the 3rd time in 3 weeks I have commitments that I can't get out of cause the times of the games was changed.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    honestly, no.

    thats because I've gone to watching other games this year or picking up OT.

    I'm fine with it either way.

    Personally I like the late start better because it means I can go out and get hammered Saturday night and not have to worry about feeling like absolute ass when I get up for our game. I like sleeping in.

    I prefer the 1 PM games.. get some work done early, grill a nice lunch, and then I have the rest of the day to get stuff done. 4 PM is my least favorite, right in the middle of the day.

    The game tonight starts at 10.25 pm local time. It's a tad too late, like the 7 pm games a lot better.

    If I was in Nashville for the game and tailgating I'd prefer a late start.

    Tough to get properly liquored up by noon and still feel okay about you life.

    Have to get up early, skip church, eat breakfast and get a good buzz all before 12?

    No thank you. 3:25 PM for me.

    1pm EST games please! So boring watching the other games. Plus, my fiancé always wants to do something around 4. I hate 4 o'clock games!

    RTH Meh...

    It's extremely difficult for me. I'm on Eastern... so the game usually isn't over until close to 7 - it seems.

    I cook the dinner and, typically, use my daughter's naptime to sneak away to watch a game at 1, here. It's over when she wakes up. A late game? She's awake and needs daddy's attention.

    Also... hate watching a game when it's dark out - unless it's a Sunday, Monday or, even, a Thursday Night game.

    I am on eastern time zone too but late games don't bother me, we just adjust dinner at the house from 7pm to 8pm. I also like them better late because I can enjoy the earlier games without being pissed. when we lose at 1pm its hard to watch football after.
