The "local" market according to the NFL is a 75mile radius of the stadium. So effing Greensboro is screwed. It's not like it's the Charlotte Panthers, so shouldn't the primary mkt be all of North and South Carolina? I know that's probably pushing it, but come on NFL! I'm supposed to get a babysitter, have my husband miss work, and haul my pregnant butt to Charlotte to see the game? If I can even afford stubhub seats! This isn't a blackout issue, this is NFLN hoping to screw enough people for long enough that their outrageous prices get met by TWCable. I used to sell DirecTV, and I wouldn't own it even if trees didn't prevent it in my neighborhood. Good thing my brother in law has DTV, but I still have to drag my kid around late night to watch my team. At least I don't have to take him to a sports bar, I guess. Meh! Screw big blue, while I'm at it.

NFLN doesn't seem at fault it is TW unwilling to negotiate, every cable/satellite provider carries NFLN EXCEPT Time Warner Cable. I switched to Directv and life is good, man.

So much BS. I will be at the firing range all day today for training and have no way to see the game. I was hoping I could DVR it. DAMN YOU NFL NETWORK.
