I live in Nashville, TN where the Titans have been completely stinking it up this season. Today, both the Packers and the Titans play at 3pm. The Titans, being an AFC team, will be aired on CBS. One would think this would free up FOX to show the NATIONALLY TELEVISED PACKERS/VIKINGS GAME (http://the506.com/nflmaps/), but that isn't the case. Instead FOX will be airing infomercials. No one here wants to watch the Titans lose, DO THEY!?

Bleh, I know I can still watch the game, but I was just really hoping I'd be able to sit and home with some SubWay and watch the game on my couch. But nooooooo. Sorry for the rant.

I think someone at your local FOX network needs to be kicked in the ding ding.

Agreed, its the only FOX affiliate in the COUNTRY that isn't showing the game, other that the ones that carry the Panthers and Cards. Fail.

the alternate network can't air a game at the same time that the primary market team is playing a home game. It's against NFL TV rules. Don't blame Fox. sorry.

Watch the game in live chat!

Or download one of the dozens of free, standalone IRC clients (I use LeafChat), and I'll show you how to enter the chat room without using the website.

Alternative option.. purchase Sunday Ticket and give two shits less what the local TV market does.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

This scared me with DirecTV. I read if the local market is showing the game, you will not get it on DTV. I panicked, then realized, Packer games won't be shown in Denver/Greeley area, lol.

Yes.. but then you flip on the local channels on the same service or over the airwaves and watch it.

Granted it is expensive.. and it doesn't fit in everyone's budget.. but I set aside a portion of my yearly budget for this and give up other things for it. Not everyone values it the same.

I'm hoping the "bad" fish don't pick up on his suggestion.
