Re: Saints to begin preseason with national TV game

Well, I get to watch one. The preseason games were not shown locally in Jackson, MS. last year unless it was a nationally televised game, so I would expect the same this year. If I had Comcast cable I would have been fine, but not with Directv. It's amazing that there will be no local coverage in a city that is only about 180 miles from New Orleans. So much for trying to extend that fan base by giving the cable company an exclusive contract to broadcast the preseason games. Before 2007 every preseason game was available locally across the entire region.
