I HATE Thursday night football!
 
FIRST and most importantly - GEAUX Saints - YAHOO! beating our (almost) Franchise long rival!

Holy Cow - I LOVE LOVE LOVE Saints Falcons Week - ya get it twice a year. It is a rivalry that the national media never noticed until the Peyton era --- (insert re opening of the Superdome anecdote here - dunno why they missed it but I did not.)

Just wanted to start with that to let you know where I am coming from.

So...

OK... Call me a casual fan - my wife would disagree - I F@#%ing love the Saints. Life long.

I put about 6 hours a week into it.

Doesn't sound like much but if you average that out over 40 years it is alot - actually - more than I have put into anything.

Football is (as a fan) easy. It is played on Sunday. SUNDAY!

OK once a season you might get a Monday Night game - Cool. Monday Night Football is (or at least was) a big deal - and you could deal with that.

National spotlights - only game on yada yada. Monday Night - I am cool with that. Ya start adding Thursday - and that is just plain greedy.

I set aside my Sundays - for yes, the saints. Have done it for years. Ask me what I am doing Sunday Nov what-ever of 2017 - I am watching the Saints. Easy. I am an easy person. I am from the big Easy.

I read the sports section on Monday and again on Saturday - I buy beer - I buy food. I have friends over. I love it

I go to two games a year (usually away these days - Seattle this year - WHO DAT!)

But sheeze - I have a life too.

I am not ON the team - THURSDAY?!!!

THURSDAY?

Baseball is played on Thursday.

Hockey is played on Thursday.

I MISSED THE F%*$*ing Atlanta New Orleans game ( I think my first in history) because I have a life.

Yes, I knew it was on the schedule. Yes, I texted w friends getting updates. Yes, I am THRILLED we won.

But I know - in years when the Saints have sucked and Falcons were kicking ass - it was a game lying beneath the NFL Radar - Saints Falcons is a game. and (like this year) the opposite was true - the Saints are kicking ass and the Falcons suck - - and LOW AND BEHOLD...

It was (as I can only tell by highlights) an awesome game.

And I missed it.

I MISSED IT! and am reduced to 2 mins and 34 secs of NFL.Com highlights

I HATE HATE HATE Thursday night football.

Anyone form the deep south KNOWS Friday night is game night - (Highschool ball) I live 1 block for Oakland Highschool - this is still true.

Saturday afternoon is college ball and Sunday -- we bar-b-q, drink beer and watch the pros.

WHO THE HELL can Bar-b-q at rush hour (west coast) on a Thursday? THURSDAY?!!!

Get Rid of it. if it throws my schedule off ( the arguably casual fan) I can't imagine what it does to the players.

Not to mention how bad the games are because of the short week. Not fair to the players & not fair to the fans. NFL=money grubbing jerks!

And for us european fans it sucks as well because we have to get up in the middle of the damn night.

Just another thing that Roger is shoving down everyone's throat. I think there should be a total of three games on Thursday. I am fine with the season opener, and a doubleheader on Thanksgiving. At the very least if they are going to keep this around (which we know they will) then please sell this game to another network because the NFL channel pretty much sucks.

Did anyone notice if Drew was a guest in the post-game show? I remember Russell Wilson and Cam Newton sitting after the game with the NFLN crew. Didn't notice Drew do the same though.

Great for TV revenue, horrible for everyone else.

I agree with OP
In east time zone the game ended at 1130, and that was actually early for a night game

I was wondering the same thing but I was on B&G arguing with a seahawks fan

No, I don't think he was invited.
Funny because I saw Brandon Weedon too...

Deion Probably didn't want to give his Léon bobble head to a saints player and we destroyed Dallas so Michael is bitter and Mooch is also bitter cause he's a former SF coach
