I'm kind of interested, living in a non NFL market, I find it confusing and oftenly irritating, why the local Fox NFC affiliate, feels the need to weekly, without fail, show a Giants, Redskins, and or Cowboys game, now I'm not trying to offend any fans of those teams, but what I can assure u of, is that I know a couple cowboy fans, and that's it, those teams have absolutly zero relevance to anything going on in this area of the country! the primary teams in Utah are the Doncos and 49ers! some Charger and Raider fans, a few Seahawk fans, maybe a Cardinal fan or 2, but to show these teams week in and week out, I almost get nausiated seeing their jerseys, anybody else in non NFL markets have to deal with this?

Having lived in Illinois, Colorado and now Wyoming the Cowboys seem to get shown pretty much everywhere if their playing. I'm not sure why but for some reason networks think that their America's team and always show them. I never got the Broncos(my fav team) back in Illinois unless they were the national game but we were always stuck with the Cowboys, Rams, Bears and Chiefs. It really wasn't until the last several years that the Colts were getting played on a regular basis in the southern part of Illinois at least.

I'm almost to the point where I'm going to call the local fox affiliate, and let out some agression, I think any team being played on a weekly basis is bullshit, I'd just as soon watch todays Browns/Lions game that was a nail biter and dramatic, then the action packed Cowgirls/Deadskins 7-6 knuckle dragger! I'm interested Heaven/Hell, what games did they show today in Wyoming, surely your in Doncos heaven? they play every week in Utah! by the way I didn't know u liked Denver, my condolences, they may as well blindfolded a 90year old and stuck him in at QB, Chris Simms was absolutely the most horrendous QB I ever watched play for the Bucs, think about that for a second, he is just terrible! so I feel for you!

Simms has been just plain horrible so far. In his defense he has barely had any time with the first time but even as a backup he is no longer serviceable. I didn't expect much this season to be honest after the Cutler fiasco and the firing of Shanahan but with a 6-0 start they gave me false hope and deep down I knew better than to believe in it to much. The game that they've lost in the last 4 that kills me is the Washington game last week since they were kicking their butt early and then after Orton went down Sims goes 3-13 with 13 yards. At 6-4 I'm still suprised but their defense is starting to wear down after the great start and week to week we don't know what were going to get from the running game although Moreno leads all rookies in rushing and looks to be a good player for years to come. It comes down to Orton staying healthy but even when he is they have trouble stretching the field on a consistent basis. Most teams know that if you stop our run you win the game. It's that simple.

 

To answer your question the games I got today was Cowboys-Redskins & Ravens-Colts(I was suprised to get this one instead of the usual Chiefs game) and then we got the Broncos-Chargers for our only late game on CBS.

Interesting, are your affiliates out of Wyoming? or Utah? cause those were our exact same games, only we don't ever get chiefs games, usually Patriots! since Utah is known for such a large Patriots fan base!

 

And by the way, it wont matter if Simms works out with the first team, the second team, or the drill team! the longer he plays the worst he will get! I hope it's not bad Karma, but one of the most exciting and happy days in my football history was when I heard he was fucked up internally, I mean personally I didnt wish him harm, but as a Bucs fan who had to suffer through 1. Gruden, 2. Grudens Coaching and 3. Grudens Quarterback Selections, watching him start nearly every game all year, and never progress, it was time for the next fantastic gruden QB pick, who was it? I believe Bruce Gratowski, the guy that actually played well for the Raiders today, do you think he played well, or Jablackass Russell was just so terrible, any QB wouldve looked good playing for the Raiders today?

You or I would be an improvement over Jamarcus Russell. :rofl2:

Over the past decade the CFL is going real strong. Back in the early 90's they tried expanding to the States, that was a total failure. we only have 8 teams spead out across our vast country but rivalries are easily created when you meet 2-3 times a year. Next week is out championship, the Grey Cup, Montreal vs Saskatchewan, the two top teams in their divisions this past season.

 

As for the TV coverage, the sports channel TSN, the Canadian equivilent to ESPN plays every single regular season and playoff game. So we get great coverage, no local blackouts, since most games are sell outs anyways.

 

I enjoy both the NFL and the CFL, the CFL is more pass friendly, no choice with only 3 downs and not 4 like the NFL. The score can aften hit fairy high numbers, yet nothing like the basketball like scores of Arena Football.

Bigger highschools have football programs. It's pretty popular around here. We also have city leagues and University football, no bowls, just the Canadian (CIS) championship called the Vanier Cup. I draw the line at watching Canadian university football. The games are usually boring because the TV broadcasts usually seem so budget. I'd rather watch American college football anyday versus the CIS stuff.

Dude! be careful, especially if you have a college team in where you live or that you root for, id take low budget tv production anyday! at least the REAL!!! best teams play for the Vanier Cup? im sure, your never left wondering if your alma mater or favorite team was the best in the country, only because of some oversight and a bunch of greedy suits, you can never do anything but wonder, dude, college sports are the greatest! I think this is 100% in basketball, but it applies to any sport, the kids play their fucking balls off, work hard, and are dedicated! in hopes of moving to the next level(where they get paid disgusting amount of cash, and in turn figure they'll only give 50% or less in playing level) but american college football is high production tv, and that only matters if your team happens to be in the SEC, ACC, Big 10, or PAC 10! dude I get so fucking sick of turning on sports center and hearing Tim Tebow, or Colt Mccoy, im glad Sam Bradford got hurt, but even after he got hurt they talked about him being hurt, for weeks after, im also glad to see USC doing so well, it's nice to not have to hear about them for once! but Id take CIS anyday, im not bitter, it is really aggravating, as the team where I live has been fucked twice, and this year what I believe is the most powerful team in the country, will never get the chance to prove it, for no other reason then they arent in a BCS Conference! instead 2 teams that do not deserve it, will be playing for the National Championship! dude TCU would steamroll anyone in the country! just like Utah could have last year, and in 2004! I don't buy into Boisie St, they got beat by TCU in their bowl game last year, you figure they wouldnt be bitching and complaining after not winning their last bowl game? so be glad, and just because the tv coverage is low production, doesnt mean the product is! i bet it's not!

If you search around on justin tv or similar sites you can usually find a live feed for most NFL games.

 

Thanks, I'll check it out!

Sure. That's how I watch most of the time, because the Dolphins are never televised in my market. The only thing is that the NFL is also looking for those live feeds, and shut them down once in a while, so you may need to switch feeds once or twice to make it all the way through a game.

    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook        
    • Baton Rogue Morgue - Massacre of St. Valentine's Day. Great track despite the clunky chorus. Solid album.    
    • I've just posted this "Grim Reaper" retrospective in another thread, but it should be here as well.    
    • "Grim Reaper" features this time. I don't know if he had this one in the works, but it's a nice tribute.    
    • I would have put Animalize as the middle feature piece as the album cover looks the most "blanketty"
    • My favorite guitarist of all time Rock In Peace  Eddie 🎸 
    • The full album's on YouTube.
