NFL Network = some rookie sh*t

Oh my gawd!

Between Bryant fucking Gumbel (Rick Romo?) and the freezing of the picture, that network can't broadcast worth a shit.

Anybody else see Deon's producer running around like a chicken with her head cut off trying to get out of the shot?

I never thought I'd wish for that sonofabitch Fox football robot, but damn, at least they can present a game without showing their ass.

The Ticket was playing the ebrake for Gumble and saying Rick Romo, but geez that production was horrible. They want cable companies to pay for that shit...the way I see the NFL going is all NFL games will be PPV in the future...

It was quite possibly the worst airing of a game I've seen in a long time. Pathetic. All the "appears to be" comments from Gumbel got OLD. I heard they were looking for a black commentator, but all they could find was Gumbel...

Ya, the announcers sucked. And on top of that, the audio and video was inferior to the big network broadcasts. There was way too much coming from the front and very little "surround" or crowd noise. I had to crank the surround speakers and turn down the fronts and center to get the experience I normally get where it feels like you're there. The distant camera shots showing the whole field had what I can only describe as a halo effect on the players. Close-ups were fine. It still looked good, but not as good as the locals do.

i dont think gumble knows anything about sports.
and i mean seriously doesnt know anything about sports... i dont think he knows players, teams, coaches... he just knows how to read telepromters while he does nfl films.

i didnt notice any picture freezing tho.

in the first like 15 mins he called the cowboys the packers over 5 times.

Miles Austin gets the packers good field position.
Here comes the pack (as the cowboys were coming on the field).
Said something about nick folk puts up 3 for the packers.
Marion Barber is the heart beat of the packers (he isnt the heart beat of the cowboys, he just made some shit up cause he doesnt know who marion barber is)

i wish i dvr'd the game to review the mistakes.

And it wasn't like he accidently said Green Bay when he was talking about MBIII being the heart of the offense. Gumbel said something like "Coach McCarthy says Marion Barber is the heart of this Green Bay offense". YGBFSM.

It was greatness when she just gave up and hid behind Deon.

I heard the 'boom goes the dynamite' kid from Ball State turned down the job offer, so the NFL network went with Gumbel instead.

I'm firmly behind the cable companies now. Who would want to pay extra for that bullshit? What a train wreck.

The NFL Network charges the telivision providers for the right to air the channel.

TWC feels that price is too high (I think it went up for the 2006-2007 nfl season which is why TWC dropped NFL network last year).

TWC is saying if they pay the premium, they will have to have a rate hike.


Since you asked about the satellite companies... its i think all companies other than TWC that have the nfl network. directv, dish, fios... hell i think comcast and charter cable have it.

there was no rate hike for me and ive had nfl network the entire time... TWC just doesnt want to pay.

Speaking of Dish, my buddy I was posting about the other day only has SIX HD Channels instead of 7. Also, he said his HD sucks fucking badly. The signal is shit. Even snowy at times. I'd be pretty fucking pissed. Brand new apartments. He doesn't have his own dish though. I'm guessing the apt complex has one main satellite dish, and that may have something to do with it.



We were watching post game shit after we got home from the game (at my house), and he told me he has HD envy of me. I told him he also has penis envy of me, so what's new.

thats totally the apt complex's fault. they use a single dish run through distribution boxes.

they should have a shit ton more HD channels but they may not even have the most updated equipment.

Cool. Yeah, I've got FIOS and I've had NFL Network the entire time and no rate hike.


There was a dude sitting pretty close to us last night, but in the lower level. He made one of those clever signs using the station's call letters.

Now
Favre
Loses his
Ninth


hahahaha. I thought it was pretty funny. But I was slightly inebriated.

Without going into a long-winded explanation, because lord knows there is plenty on the internet, the story is:

NFLN thinks everyone on basic cable should get the NFLN, like ESPN. However, the programming fee's they are asking are outrageous and would add a nominal amount per month to each subscriber's bill, regardless of whether or not they ever watch the channel.

The cable companies (like Comcast already does and the NFLN is pissed about that) just want to be able to add the channel into a sports package where subscribers can pay extra if they want, not spread it across everyones monthly bill.

As of lately more nationally the cable co's are getting much more support as time goes by. Ultimately it's the NFLN holding the games hostage until the cable co's pay the desired price they want, which isn't necessarily fair.

Both have plenty of money in their propaganda machines. Just my $.02 though.

Yep. That sounds like a ghetto rigged setup to me. If he can get his own he will be much better off.

How many times did Gumbel say "Packers" when he meant Cowboys?

They were talking about Barber and he said some shit like, "The Packers tell us he is the heart of their offense."

the ticket is airing some of the mistakes gumball made. this is exactly what he said about barber:

"mike mccarthy actually called barber the heartbeat of the green bay offense"

that's not even a mistake... fine, you call dallas green bay a hundred times, you fuck up sponsers, but on this situation you just completely pulled shit out of your ass.

i mean he got the green bay coach right. he got the team he wanted to talk about right. then he just stole a players name off the back of a jersey and made up a quote.

lol - He's the epitome of the used car salesman look. I remember seeing him on HBO's real sports and thinking that all the time. He's like an actor 24/7 and I don't think he gives anyone credit enough to call him out on it.

My notes:

1. Deion Sanders looked like he wanted to give TO a blow job.
2. Eisen was the only one of the group that looked ok but even he sucked.
3. Cris Collinsworth is a pretty good analyst but even he looks like shit next to Bryant Gumbel.
4. I think the NFL-N signed the wrong Gumbel.
