Re: What about Saints on Thanksgiving Day 2010

Very interesting issue, but I don't believe the Saints will be in the Thanksgiving game. My belief is the Cowboys game will be a Monday Night game, and we all know the NFL is always interested in maximizing their big money teams. What I mean is why show the Cowboys vs Saints on Thanksgiving when they already know Cowboys vs anyone else is still going to be a big draw, and save the Cowboys vs Saints for another slot which should draw even better ratings.

I'll go with majority and vote no--
I hate short weeks, and I doubt that the NFL would give up a potential big audience game like NO-Dall

We have never played on TG Day.

It would be nice to - BUT I think I would rather play Detroit.

Saints didn't have a Sunday night game on NBC in 2009, I look for Cowboys vs Saints on a Sunday night for NBC.

There's enough stress on TD that I don't need them to add the Saints playing the Cowboys to it. I'd rather watch the Saints revenge last season's lose in prime time

Re: What about Saints on Thanksgiving Day 2010

Correct me if I'm wrong...but isn't it the same boring games every Thanksgiving? Detriot, Dallas, Minny, Cleveland, Green Bay.....Thats it....yawn. Forgive me if I left out another team there that I don't give a rats ass about. It's lame and the only reason I watch them is because it helps me get some nap time in. I wouldn't mind seeing a little mix up there, but like someone mentioned...it would definately make TG a little more stressful.

I think if we wanted it bad enough we could start a petition to Roger Goodel, suggesting the Saints play on thanksgiving day.
