i'm sure they thought about it, but the AFC North clash  based on percentages will likely be a better game and draw more viewers.

@CUbsfan @eslrush the last week of the season may be an exception, they likely have plans but need the Monday night game to be completed before going ahead with any official announcement

@jcapace869007 Bears even as a dumpster fire still is a big market view, and the benching of Cutler makes it even more compelling.

for all we know this game could be more competitive than most of the prime time games we have seen this season. And you just know this is going to still get higher ratings than anything else on the tv screen tonight.

As soon as i see the name Mark Madden, i know this is garbage. Madden is a stain on the underwear of life.
 Not saying he's the guilty party here, but Madden will criticize before he shows honesty, because it brings him attention, which is what fame hogs do. He did it when he was in WCW,  he does it whenever he's on NFL Top 10 shows, he does it because he wants attention.

@jhpiergo still a rivalry, and the benching of Cutler makes it more intriguing now actually.

@CUbsfan 6 wins is enough to go to a bowl game, and there likely was not a better quality option otherwise.

@pacino83 @ShawnDiIorio @DaleMoog networks do need a secondary game in case for any reason there are problems with the primary game, due to it being a doubleheader week for them, they get almost the whole country.

@eslrush thats because another game can not air in NY when one of the teams is at home, since both teams are on the road, that rule does not apply.

@DaleMoog i think they are taking it year to year. It may also depend on the city. Glendale and Miami are warm weather cities. They may be reluctant to hold a ProBowl in a city like Chicago if they ever get a Super Bowl.

way i see it, if you are addicted to legalized gambling, you lose your assets or end up in jail or court ordered rehab. Illegal gambling, you and members of your family could end up at the bottom of the river. Once big buisness get involved in the gambling industry, you'll see laws passed to crack down harder on the illegal activity as well, why? because illegal gambling cuts into the fat cat's pockets.

its a tremendous service, i'm very happy with it. but it's a case of whether or not viewers are willing to part with that income. i think it's going to take a few years before it becomes profitable, but i agree with wwe's decision to take a chance here, the problem is people demand results right off the bat, and to be honest, it's not realistic.

@Jason_Shetler @Gersh_Essential its not easy to suddenly have the ability to capture the intensity of a sport. It can take time and effort to get there. The NFL is a powerful animal to capture. Very different from Ultimate Fighting.

@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 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.

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.

$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.

@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.

@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.
