@DaleMoog you are making a big mistake there, a number of divisional games, where divisional games no matter what the record, have that rivalry and that extra energy.

To be honest, it does not really matter who they put out there, it will still draw higher ratings than anything else on TV.

@iveyjanette_207 @BroncosItaly If anything, the 49ers and Chiefs have not been as consistent with up
and down play, i think it's more likely we see a blowout one way or
another in the KC-SF game than the NYJ-SD game..The jets had chances to win the games they lost in the 4th quarter, and with them knowing the season may be at stake, i expect the jets will be at least competitive, even though they probably will still lose the game.

@tommyha5 The New York and Los Angeles Markets are getting this game, the number of and level or markets play a bigger part on what announce teams are chosen, as opposed the quality of the contest. So stop pretending to act like you know anything.

i think that now makes it 5 Bills games airing on Fox this season, as both their NFC Road Games are on it as well.

i watched a good part of this show and while it has great ideas, it has plenty of issues right out of the starting gate.
You know the saying "Too many cooks spoil the broth"? There was way too many people on this show, which means there's no way for anyone's personality to come across to the viewer. No one is going to be able to connect with the audience when the show's cast is almost as big as the audience viewing it
My thought is they should just pick 5 or 6 people to have on each week, even if they are different each week. With 10-15 people, everyone came off as super generic.
@PG for prez have you been living under a rock? this is how they have been doing the mlb playoffs for more than a decade.

I don't see the point in having Rousey beat up Barbie dolls in 2 minutes. That's all a fight with Carano would be. ANd I sure as hell don't feel sorry for UFC from a marketing standpoint, where Dana White has found marketed success from basically legal glorified organized dogfighting.

@JohnDanknich i wouldn't necessarily say so because most Premier League Matches air during AM Hours. But the job they do with it is so good that I do hope it stays there.

@jcapace869007 you cant live in the past forever, eventually new people have to step in, there were plenty of average announcers back in the 80s, we just do not remember their names or the games they called because we didnt care about them back then.
@Rajshakur i really cannot blame Fox for cable companies not carrying the channel. Although the price is a bit high, probably due to lack of subscribers. Hopefully it drops some in a few years.

$14.99 a month is a bit much, also if you have a normal 9-5 job it's not going to benefit you. It'd be cool if NBCSN did something similar with it's premier league coverage though.
@skaus yeah but he's in his 70s, i have to think the travel had to play part in that decision.

@eslrush 1 it's not just the 2 teams quality that decided what announce teams go where, but the number of markets it reaches plays part, so that has to be one of the factors.
2 nfl decided that certain games will get swap networks over the course of the season, not sure why this one specifically was switched but there has to be a logical reason that we do not know about, also that team is getting stale, they need to be broken up.
3 baseball ratings are terrible now, it's not exciting to fans anymore, so i cant blame espn for dropping some focus on it.
Fantasy Football Now drew 111,000 viewers at 10 AM because hardly anyone knew it was on at that time, due to espn's lack of promoting it, i didn't know it was on until 959am that day.

@floyd_pink its really easy to place blame on Goodell, but if he goes, who takes his place that can change things? the commissioner is just a puppet when you compare the problems that exist everywhere else, from greedy players, greedy executives, and most importantly, greedy owners, if you want real change, you have to make changes everywhere, not just at the top. And Goodell is not really the top, because he just panders to owners.

the negative headlines, other than the Redskins thing, are a result of people making bad decisions in life. a handful out of about 2000 players, and thousands of former players will consist of a few people who make bad choices, ad those kinds of people will exist in any organization. i really can't place a significant amount of blame the nfl for Rice beating his g/f, Sharper raping women, Hernandez killing people, and Incognito being a huge douche.
@DavidNascarguyHeller i'm not sorry for those who not happy and respond with profanities, as shown in those tweets. You deserve to get treated the way you treat others. For those who act professionally, you deserve better.

Saying someone's first pitch was better than 50 cent's is like saying your team's defense was better than The Dallas Cowboy's was last year. Not a compliment.

@stuie299 breaking news, big markets have alot of people in them, so of course from a business standpoint that's going to be the case, and even when the lakers are bad they get big publicity as a dumpster fire, same can be said for the Redskins awful run in 2013. it's not about how good you are, it's how popular you are.

@hotincleveland nice ignorant comment there, calling all men at espn sexist. I'm sure you have insider information proving that as fact too.
@brandonfranze @Beaube Nett because teams do not want to risk losing the valuable 1 point they get from getting to OT, especially when you see how every point can matter in today's NHL. The best thing to do would give teams who win in regulation 3 points, like they do in the Olympics, and you will see teams taking a few more chances later in the game.

I really enjoyed the duo when watching Sharks broadcasts. Sad to hear that news, I wish him the best. This could open the door for Jamie Baker to move up from radio broadcasts. He has done a few TV broadcasts over the past few seasons and has done fine, but it won't be the same without Drew alongside Randy.

@awful the nfl, mlb and nba are in a spot where massive money is changing hands with their tv contracts and only network tv can compete for it. Hockey is where it's hardcore fans will watch no matter what the channel. if a cable mogul showed up with billions and won Superbowl rights, the Superbowl would be on cable. people need to stop realizing that cable is not inferior to network tv, because cable is actually catching up with network tv.

i really do not think this is a major issue. i'm pretty certain most people have cable or access to nbc sports programming on their website or phone/tablet app. seriously, who still has the rabbit ears tv that only has the network channels? it's not the 1990s it's 2014.
nbcuniversal wants nbcsn to have ratings success so its understandable that it keeps 2 games on nbcsn.
