Gripe on NFL networks pre-season coverage

12 posts in this topic

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?

Most TVs have a zoom function now. Zoom til the ticker's gone.

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
