    I think everyone should boycott the game. Why should I watch NE play when they didn't let the Dallas games be shown in San Antonio?
    I don't get that either. If they can make a big hue and cry over the 'perfect' season, I should think folks in Texas should be able to watch their Cowboys. It's ridiculous that I could watch that game up here while you folks could not.

    We got the pats too, but at least they gave us a choice of games with the Seahawks playing.

    For pure hatred rivalries, nothing compares to the Chiefs, Raiders, Broncos triumvirate. They aren't rivals, they hate each other.
    No Bolts?

    I don't know ... Jaguar's collapse in L2 is pretty similar

    The NFL has an exception? I thought only MLB did. The NFL isn't a monopoly, there was the XFL not too long ago and other competing leagues before that.
    The NFL is a trust, however, in that it is a group of businesses that coordinate revenues and such. If BP-Amoco and Exxon and Shell etc. got together to agree to share Gasoline revenues, it would be illegal, for example.

    It was congressfolk from Texas and iirc Vermont that spearheaded this effort, speaking up for viewers who don't live in the metro area of their regional teams.

    This league is making money hand over fist. There's no reason they can't suck it up and make NFL Network affordable to cable operators so they can put it on a basic digital tier without increasing costs to the viewing public.

    How the Patriots handle this game is going to be very interesting. The 16-0 record, potential TD records for Brady and Moss... plus they're already a cinch to set the season scoring record (they need 6 pts).

    Well, the Giants are pretty beat up as well and have their playoff spot wrapped up. So who knows.

    I'm sure they'll rest Jacobs and Burress, who're hurting bad.

    Patriots have a dilemma. Do they really want that perfect season? If they do, they may have to risk their starters, because I don't think the Giants are going to rein it in any.

    Not everyone gets a boner over the Patriots.



    ACK!
