    Did anyone else take their radio to the game only to have Mike Keith and Frank Wycheck delays about 15-20 seconds all night long?

    Listening to Titans Radio while watching the game was one of the best parts of the game experience for me. I don't know if this is a one-time deal but a lot of fans around me just turned them off because it was so annoying.

    Anyone know why?

    Jeez, that must have sucked! Without that it feels like high-school JV football.

    There was a call about it on the post-game show. Apparently it's from the FCC. Mark Howard was aware of the long delay and said it would remain that way.

    I had my brand new headset with me and I was very happy with it. It picked up the signal and it was so very clear. The radio I had for last year wasn't near as good. The proximity of the broadcast tower seemed to fry it I think. As for the delay, I noticed it right away and it was irritating. I did listen to my radio much less than I otherwise would.

    Yes, appearantly it is to keep profanity being picked up by parabolic mics from making the air.

    I feel for what you guys may have gone through last night. I say this because we in Winnipeg (I can't speak for the rest of Canadian cities) experience something similar on our CFL broadcasts/telecasts. Our local radio broadcasts are about two seconds ahead of the National TV broadcasts. And, you know whats happening before it happens on TV.

    You're right it can be annoying. :grrr:

    It sucked. FCC usually says 7 seconds, and I didn't count, but TitanJeff is right. It was really long...10-15 seconds. The previous play would be over, the ball spotted, and the offence headed to the line of scrimmage and the whistle just killed the previous play on the radio a couple of times.

    Guess they're afraid Frank might say a bad word.

    I received a response from Larry Stone on this that I put in today's article. Basically, it's a $350,000 fine if a player throws out an "F-Bomb" on the sidelines and it somehow gets on the air. Bud isn't going to risk it.

    I fear this thing will end up costing Titans Radio a ton of listeners both in the stadium and those who like to turn down the TV and listen at home.
