I am certain that this is going to fall on deaf ears, but I must vent anyhow.
The National Football League television deal is a crock. It's a shame that regional coverage is the way Fox and CBS Sports handles it. I am sure some people would have enjoyed watching the Broncos and Browns or the Ravens and Chargers during the 4 p.m. wave of games, but both WTRF-7 and KDKA out of Pittsburgh carried the Steelers.
I understand KDKA carrying the Steelers, for crying out loud it's in Pittsburgh. So my beef is why can't WTRF carry another game. During the 1 p.m. round of games both channels had a different game on, but when it comes to the Steelers they are on both networks.
I guess the argument could be made that not everyone receives KDKA on his or her channel lineup, but those people probably have Direct TV or Dish and would receive the game anyway.
I will admit I watched the Steelers' game in its entirety, but it would have been nice to have an option is the only point I am trying to make.
And as I said when I opened this blog, this is going to fall on deaf ears because nothing is probably ever going to get done, but it would be nice to see something done, but I guess I will go to a restaurant or get Direct TV if I want more of a selection of games.
College Saturdays you can watch games from Noon (EST) to about 2 a.m. (EST) on about 6 different channels. NFL you get a doubleheader on one of the networks, a single game on the other (opposite the Steelers or the Steelers if it's Fox) and you get the Sunday Night Game and a Monday Night game.
