Whose bright idea was it to cut away from one of the NFC-LEADING teams playing in a great game to some 9-6 snoozefest?
:mad:

FOX would never do something like that. Was this a national decision, or something handled in whatever local markets had a game choice? I can't imagine they would flip the game in Carolina...

I am in Atlanta they did it here. I then turned on my slingbox that I have in Raleigh and they did it there as well. Sucks.

They frickin' killed the feed in Raleigh?! Some CBS execs are going to have some nasty voicemails over that, I would think. I'm going to call my local CBS affiliate and complain. It won't do any good in the big picture, but it will make be feel better.

Nah, not for me. I see your point, but I wouldn't get the $$ out of it.

The PIT-BAL game has not been a snoozefest.

Changed in Memphis, too. It must have been a national decision.

I have DTV, and it switched on me. Got it back a few minutes later, but still pissed me off. The receiver in the bedroom never lost feed, but our HD did.

Mine stayed on the game the whole time.

you were probably watching the local feed since they black out the dedicated channed in the local viewing area.

I get a dedicated channel since im out of the viewing area.

I live in Raleigh, and I've just emailed freaking WRAL.

You have to understand, in Raleigh, the Panthers don't exist. Its just freaking ACC basketball, day and night, night and day, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The morons don't understand there are Panthers fans here and they also don't understand that 50% of the people who live in Raleigh now, aren't from here and could give a jolly damn about the ACC.
