Not in favor of flex scheduling for Sunday night games

This basically means the only way the Saints will get a Sunday night game is if they are in the playoff hunt. Any other year the Saints would get a Sunday night game. Owe well I guess I can't complain. Due to the schedule this year I will get to see 3 televised Saints since i'm in the Cleveland Browns/Pittsburgh Steelers marketing zone being I live in Youngstown,Ohio. I may be going to the game in Cleveland. Hoping to see more people wearing black and gold jerseys than me but due to regional alighnment that is a little to much to ask.

Nice to hear that there are Saints fans in Youngstown. Ever consider NFL Sunday Ticket? It's a bit pricey but you would be able to see the Saints every weekend.

RE: Not in favor of flex sheduling for Sunday night games

that said i am loving the idea of flex scheduling. if we are competitive we could end up on a game or two. plus i am tired of watching teams that are having a bad year, but are popular to stick in, getting those games and basically making those games unwatchable. i love this idea if it is done right. how long till they stick in a game that has green bay playing even if their record stinks because they think it will bring more ratings then a team like the saints who could be fighting for a spot. now i don't know that this will even be the case but my point is that if it were would they do it. makes me wonder if we will end up with the same crap

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

I'm with spkb on this one. We don't have any sunday night games scheduled so the flex scheduling gives us an opportunity to get another game or 2 on national tv if we're playing well and in playoff contention.

Dude! Even at $200 per season, the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket is a steal! I'll be buying for my 4th year now. It's an essential purchase for a displaced Saints fan.
