Saints gettin some more TV coverage respect from FOX!!

I was bummed all week about this game because I'm out here in L.A., and I can't get myself to go to any sports bars in Pasadena that I know of that are Saints friendly (although I guess the whole Rose Bowl-USC-Reggie tie in might have an affect THIS year, haven't checked this season... ). So I was stuck at home with yet another stinkin West Coast Regional game (with the Rams no less, adding insult to injury!).

I checked back today to make sure what all the games were for this Sunday, and whoa what a difference a day makes --- we're getting another Saints game in SoCal!! But not only here, look at all these stations dumping the rams/seattle game for ours:

[Los Angeles, CA (KTTV); San Diego, CA (XETV); Palm Springs, CA (KDFX); Las Vegas, NV (KVVU); Phoenix, AZ (KSAZ); Tucson, AZ (KMSB); Yuma, AZ (KECY); Little Rock, AR (KLRT): SEA/STL -> PHI/NO]

as opposed to us getting sidelined for the seattle/st.louis game:

El Paso, TX (KFOX): PHI/NO -> SEA/STL

Man this is awesome!! Definitely a turn in the tide. Now I can not only enjoy the game from the comfort of my home, but I will be able to chat here with the good ole' bng crew 8) What a way to enter into a bye, I never woulda thought the beginning of this season, but I've already seen 3 Saints games on TV. There is no doubt in my mind we are going to win and also I bet we're going to get at least 3 more games broadcast in LA down the road!!

Go Saints!!!

RE: Saints gettin some more TV coverage respect from FOX!!

lucky you. I get NYG at Atalanta. well eli is playing at least. I relly hate NY. They control the entire upper east coast. Well i could watch Houston at Dallas. They always show Dallas here. Hate them too.
Talk about getting the worst picks for this weeks games. Looks like I will be streaming again. They know everyone north of Connt. hates the NY teams.
Well there is always the sports bar.

RE: Saints gettin some more TV coverage respect from FOX!!

After never being able to catch Saints games when I was in San Diego for weeks at a time, I became a Chargers fan. Now, I don't regret my Sandy-Ego fandom at all, but I was sick not being able to watch the games. I watched the scoreboard graphic constantly throughout all of the games. It was torture.

I know what it's like. I'm glad you get to watch it, buddy.

I'm happy that you guys will get to watch the Saints game this weekend because it's going to be an intense game, IMO the winner will take it by only 4 points.
If I lived out of state and couldn't watch the Saints it would kill me every Sunday, I would for sure get Direct TV and subscribe to the NFL ticket..

We're getting the Giants in Atlanta because they are playing the Falcons. Last week they did show the Saints/Bucs game.

Your dilemma is the reason I've bought the NFL Sunday Ticket for the last 4 years. I get every Saints game from the comfort of home.

Been a Sunday Ticket subscriber since inception...I have not missed a Saints game in like 10 years or so.(can't recall exactly when the first year was but....I know I paid for it when it started.) This is great though....when you are the highlight game of the 12:00 or 4:00 slot (in this case its 12) you know you are doin good. I guess this also means for those of you who do live in N.O. that Joe Buck and the gang are gonna host the pregame show right outside of the dome right? You guys are gonna get to scream and hollar at them and the nation while they yap about the Saints game and every other game for that day. Make the country proud you guys. I'll be there in spirit but chillin here at home (Miami) celebrating my son's second b-day whith the game on the big screen. WE WILL PULL THIS ONE OFF! BELIEVE!!!

With your son's b-day and a Saints win I don't think you could hope for a better day..

Go Saints
