Gripe on NFL networks pre-season coverage

Recommended Posts

PFFC    212

I have no problem with a game being a delayed broadcast.

I just make a point of avoiding any situation where I might have seen a score update.

But then just before kickoff what scrolls across the bottom?

The freaking score!

Come on man!!!!!

Wait so you're telling me that a network that is dedicated exclusively to NFL football has a sports ticker that shows you real time scores?!?!?! THE NERVE!!!

I understand the idea of the NFL network wanting to show updated scores but can they maybe hold off during delayed broadcasts?

And they do show game stats too...they made Stewarts leg injury sound pretty bad and I must say I was a little freaked out by it.

Man, it's just a replay of the game for people outside of the market area. Of course they aren't going to do away with the sports ticker during a re-airing. Not everyone, and probably very few, who's watching that game is a fan who's trying to watch it for the first time and has been hiding in the closet all day to avoid seeing the scores.

I think the concept of replaying all of the games and only showing 11 games live, from the very Network that the league owns, is stupid in general... A few years ago, DTV would show ALL of the preseason games LIVE, for FREE on different channels as part of the Sunday Ticket preview.

Now, you only get to see 11 live games from the entire preseason? Super wack.

It is called Re-play! Otherwise DVR it and turn all your clocks back...why did you read it if the final preseason score mattered to you?

Not sure where the whole "only 11 live games" idea is coming from. I count about 13 games that have been watchable in real time thus far. Thats in my area, the gulf coast.

*Edit. Make that 14 and only half way through week 2.
