Getting to see the Chiefs play on Friday at 4:00 PDT works for me. ROFL

We may get the "A" crew. Mike & Paul. ESPN does not do a Sunday night game during the first weekend of the WS.

They can't do it.
They have a contract to show the 2005 World Series of Poker for the 1,500th time :cuss:

That would be awesome! The local CBS affiliate here is planning on showing the weekly episode of Ghost Whisperer tomorrow night. What a bunch of assclowns :cuss:

Being stuck at work on a Friday it won't matter to me. Well, I suppose the DVR would work better if it was shown.

First, I find out the game has been moved to Friday at 5:00 my time.
Im like damn!!!

I talk my boss into letting me off work early so I can watch the game.

Now, I find out the game isn't going to be televised. Are you kidding me???? :cuss:

Come on ESPN, come through for me. :clap:

I always get stuck listening to the game over the internet unless we have a primetime! So it won't affect me any.

I recently moved from KC to Memphis.
First post to this board as well! I love this site!

Do we have any players that may have played on Sunday that won't tomorrow since the game moved up?

The DirecTV CSR just told me that the game would be on ESPN. He didn't seem to know any of the drama, he thought the game was originally on ESPN too, so take it with a grain of salt.

For the sake of innocent Wichita area people who might get hit with stray bullets from my automatic weapon, I sure as hell hope they get this game on ESPN.

I'm sure they are, they have no reason not to want it on TV. I have no idea who the **** would want to listen to the game on the radio, that's seriously the gayest thing I've heard all day. I'd rather just turn off the sportscenter and the planet for a couple days.

heard from where?


a guy i work with, and I just saw it on a yahoo news release. The NFL wants this game televised nationally, and they are going to do all they can to see that it happens.

On the radi, they just said one of the main reasons is vegas, and they don't want an NFL game going on without being to show it in the area. It's all about the $$$, and if I were a gambling man, I'd bet you guys are gonna get to watch your game...

I think it makes perfect sense, the NFL likes to get as many games on TV as possible, I would not be surprised if ESPN inquired about it. Friday would be the best day all weekend to actually turn this into a TV game, but I think pulling it all off in 1 day's time is not something I have a lot of faith in them doing, we'll see.

Wouldn't it be a bad idea for ESPN to do this game? The viewership will be down because
A) It's not that great of a matchup
B) Normal viewers of football at the normal times may not know about the game/will have other plans
C) To get their crews ready, cancel previous programming, pay off CBS, and sustain a weaker viewership, wouldn't they incure a loss from all this?

Wouldn't it be ironic, though, if the sunday night crew missed our game because of the other hurricane and then got this one.

Weird stuff.

I hope something happens and CBS gets screwed over to the max. The station is Wichita is blaming the NFL but that sounds fishy to me.

It's not, the NFL is really really strict about this stuff.

They might broadcast it on ESPN2.
