Every time ESPN cuts to Sal Palantonio in Philly the fans sing "OD OD OD OD OD OD OD"

I've got Tampa/New Orleans at 12, then The Duracell Bowl at 3

All that matters is the Bills-Bears game at noon.

I've got Tampa/New Orleans and Dolphins/Patriots at 1, and I've got Cowboys/Eagles at 4

I'm surprised that Cowboys/Eagles isn't the NBC Game of the Week.

This would be the first time I'd be rooting for the Cowboys too.

We get Skins/Giants and 9ers/Raiders today.

You know, just watching the Eagles fans, I hope that T.O. gets like 150 yards and 2 TD's today just to shut them up. I think the Eagles will win because they're a better team, but I just want to see Eagles fans shut the hell up.

the blackout rules only state that if you're in a 75 mile radius of the stadium you get blacked out if there's no sellout. the decision to show the local team is up to the local affiliates, and as bad as the raiders and 49ers are, the affilliate would burn if they preempted the game.

Blackout policy also states that the other network can't show a game when your local team has a home game. The 49er's are at home and playing on CBS so Fox can't show a game in the afternoon.

Brewtown Andy
10-08-2006, 09:16 AM
Nantz: "Rex Grossman, drafted in the first round by Dick Jauron the last season he was the coach of the Bears"

WHAT? Hey, dickhead, how about the GM who's still running the show in Chicago made that selection? I thought Nantz was supposed to be good.

Shane W
10-08-2006, 09:18 AM

Torry Holt caught a 15 yard or so TD pass from one Marc Bulger.

There are two doves on the field in Chicago that just refuse to leave. The line of scrimmage is literally 5 yards away and they're not moving.

Brewtown Andy
10-08-2006, 10:08 AM
Bills just lost 8 yards on that drive.

And the consecutive plays in Buffalo territory streak ends, as Devin Hester gets only 10 yards on the punt return instead of the 30 he needed. :D
