    TNF as all teams get one. And I am pretty sure it will be away. We won't get a home Primetime game after going 6-10. But if we did get a home game, it would be TNF. For those that don't know. We get a home MNF game every 4 years!!! Going back to 2004. We had '04 against Packers and won, '08 against Colts and won, and then last yr against Jets and won. So its not like we dont put on a good show, MNF just liked going to New Orleans, Miami, Dallas, NY 2 to 3 times every single season. So it doesnt leave room for small markets like us. I personally believe no team should get more than one MNF game a season. But its never that way.

    As far as SNF goes, they completely don't like us WHAT-SO-EVER. Our last SNF game was in '09 against the Colts only coming after a 13-3 season. Even after winning the top seed in AFC that year, we STILL didnt earn a home MNF. And SNF hasn't even put us away since '09.

    Its true that I also have gotten used to have the noon game on Sunday then watching the rest of the games. But I see nothing wrong with one primetime home game during each season just to change it up. The atmosphere is completely different at a home night game in Nashville. Why should ALL the other teams get all the night games. I believe the NFC East makes up like half the SNF schedule of games each year.

    I have been to 3:30 games before when they have them randomly, and I truly prefer the noon games. Drinking at 10 am is not a problem because I would be doing it at home anyway as soon as the NFL starts that day. The traffic getting downtown is completely different and as far as tailgating goes, if the game was at 3:30, I would either 1: starting drinking at home first and make it harder to get downtown OR 2: get downtown to start tailgating that much earlier meaning I would drink EVEN more before the game starts and probably not remember it altogether as well as miss all the early games since I would be downtown at that time. So for the tailgating season ticket holder, the noons games work the best. But I don't mind a random change throughout the season

    Drinking in the morning = hell. If I want to be drinking at 10am, I need to wake up at 5am to prepare.

    I've never had more than two beers before a noon Titans game. But I really don't like going to our games drunk because I care too much about our team and want my full attention on the game.

    I got drunk for the Steelers game last year because I expected a slaughter. That's the only time I've ever been drunk at one of our games.

    I'm surprised two 6-10 seasons in the past 3 years hasn't led to more drinking lol.

    This is funny, I completely agree. I was at that Steelers game as well, and my friends were like "why aren't you drinking?" I'm like man I care too much about this team to watch the game drunk.

    They're the teams that make the NFL money. The NFL hasn't made a significant chunk of change from the Titans and their fans since the Vince Young pickup.

    I can't blame the NFL for using their good franchises for all they are worth: Packers, Steelers, NY teams, Pats, Eagles, Cowboys, etc.

    It's good business for them. Just like the Red Wings, Rangers, Penguins, Blackhawks, etc. will always get the winter classic and other primo games. They generate the funds. Not my Nashville predators.

    I've come to grips with that, and you earn the respect you get. Red Wings have been around since the 1920s. Packers and Cowboys are staples of the sport. Without the Yankees, baseball would be even less popular than it is now. Celtics and Lakers will always be a big deal in the NBA, and the Indiana Pacers, even when they're better than the former two teams, will never get that treatment, because honestly.. who cares about the Indiana Pacers?

    When Tiger Woods sucks, he gets more airtime than the winners.
