Regional Broadcasting is probably the biggest beef NFL fans have when it comes to games on regular television. But if you have been a fan long enough you’ve gotten over the fact that you’ll get some crappy games every now and then (ex. Skins vs. Bucs). But that’s not my biggest gripe with CBS or Fox, this is what is…………..
When games become blowouts and stations do not switch over to another game. This past weekend CBS had the Titans and Jaguars for their 1pm broadcast. First problem is why would you even put that game on TV a 0-3 team vs. a 1-2 team??? I understand regional broadcasting so I got over that part; it is when the game got 30-10 with a few minutes left in the 3rdquarter. It was looking doubtful that the titans were going to pull off a New York Jets comeback ala Vinny Testaverde. Why in the name of sports would you not switch to another game that was competitiveve? I knew they weren’t going to switch to Bengals vs. Browns even though it was coming down to the wire. I would have been okay with Ravens vs. Patriots or any other game that was close. To rub it in more, after the jaguars game had ended did they switch to another game or the Bengals game that was in OT? NO!!! They kept talking about the games that had already ended, and kept talking about what was going on in the overtime game. Just ticking me off and making me want to throw my remote through my TV. I am sure CBS and NFL have some deal or something that doesn’t allow them to switch games or do look ins for longer than 5 seconds.
Come one CBS/FOX help us out when there are blowouts or crappy games and switch them to another game.
