Seems about right for Dallas

KXAS in Dallas-Fort Worth delayed breaking into Sunday’s Cowboys’ key divisional matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles for six minutes to issue a tornado warning, riling some viewers who accused the local NBC station of putting football ahead of public safety.

As they should have. Nothing worse than a dumb ass weather delay interrupting whatever it is you’re trying to watch. 
 

Ain’t a soul out there that takes those things seriously anyways

People with an inkling of intelligence would head warnings of deadly weather events.  You ought to be a Dallas fan.

If it takes having your local tv station notifying you of a storm or whatever coming your way you’re obviously pretty out to lunch as is and doomed for anyways.

Tbh I'd be mad if they show a weather update over a Panthers game. A weather ticker, emergency alert system would do the job.

Last friday in lakeland fl, my dad's work warehouse got destroyed by an EF2 tornado. Workers got the alert on cell phones 1 min before it hit, saved their lives.

It was a tornado watch, not warning. HUGE difference. And it lasted for hours.

And as someone from that area you’ll have  100 watches a year.

Also, there are plenty of outlets to get weather.

But a small banner on the TV while the game is playing would be nice, though maybe there was one.
 

Lastly, I bet the watch was most certainly televised during commercial breaks so about 10,791 times.

The viewers who got riled up because NBC didn’t interrupt the game to tell them about  a watch they already knew about are no doubt ‘passionate about politics’ and age 70+.

It was a warning and an ef 3 actually on the ground.

But at least they tweeted during the game.

 

Heck, I frequently check Twitter for tornado warnings. Doesn't everybody? :thinking:

Agree 100%.

Last year the NBA playoffs on TV in Charlotte were interrupted because the local affiliate wanted to cover some potential tornadoes in Hickory a 100 miles away....total horsesh*t.
