    You don't live in Australia.
  4. Yeah, well it's not that cold in Australia come December 31. Here, it might be cold. Especially at night.

    And more importantly, it's New Years' Eve...

    I thought for sure we'd at least get a 4:00 game. Oh Well, another trip to the sportsbar....Now i'll have to find something else to do besides watch football on New Years. Packers and Bears......yuck.

    Well, I frankly wanted to watch it at night... And broadcasted in HD too. I also wanted to show my Titans to the world. I guess we should have several primetime games next year for sure.

    I understand the logic behind the league's decision, but I absolutely don't agree with it, and I fully expect it to backfire in their faces.

    CHI/GB is an essentially meaningless game; the Packers are badly overmatched, and Favre (who I personally think will return next year) will probably get shredded. I expect it will be over by halftime, and many viewers will tune out.

    Several other games have much greater importance in the grand scheme of things, and will directly affect the playoff picture....JAX/KC, PIT/CIN, NE/TEN, and ATL/PHI in particular. Of all these games, only one (ATL/PHI) was moved to a later time slot.

    I won't pretend to know how television ratings work, but it's clear that the league based their decision on name recognition over any competitive interests, bumping Favre, Peyton, and Vick into the higher visibility time slots. Maybe I'm a bit biased, but it seems to me that pitting Tom Brady against Vince Young would have been a pretty good draw...but I guess the league knows best, huh? :rolleyes::gag:

    Our game is name recognition too, as it is highly probably our game means nothing. Vince would be the only draw. So I get that.

    They should have gone with any of the play in games. The Giants would have provided the highest drama, as they likely would have had to play their way in, but being as it is already a sat game, the best game may be the Jets or Denver. Likely, both will be on the line and NY of course being a major market. More drama.

    Favre has been telling them he will prob come back. I do not get this at all. His retirement game is not that big of deal. He's a Hall of Famer, but he's not a god like Jordan or Ripken or anything.

    I'm surprised they decided to have a New Years eve game anyway.
    i thought the latest game would be played at 4:15.

    I don't remember ever watching a new years eve game.

    oh well.. thats NBC for you. They have a magical way of screwing up everything they touch.. except for Conan O'Brian ofcourse :grrhee:
  10. Well, you would expect them to go for a match, with a bigger 'fanbase' and all, but the packers bears match is gonna be a whitewash, really, Favre is probably gonna come back next year anyway...

    And a noon game for the titans as well., jeez...
