Dled, I’m Still trying to wrap my head around why, WHY for those of us purchasing the NFL ticket who live out of state, we do not get the Preseason games??? WTH is up with that, now they want to have us pay another fee to watch games on our computer!!!!! this is getting out of hand

I agree keith. As well as football, I live in Atlanta and I cannot listen to the braves radio online. I guess MLB has complete blackout control over that too? Everywhere Ive read online says I now have to buy MLB gameday audio if I want the stream. If I go to a local stations website it just plays some recorded show instead of the game.

It is all about making that almighty dollar………… use to could listen to the Braves on radio all the time. …..heck, my grandmother in Northeast Tennessee use to listen to them when I was a kid when we visited because she didn’t have no television. …………..and no inside bathroom either for that matter..ha ! but she got along well………God rest her soul……………and I remember watching em a lot on TBS and then the money issue got involved. I wonder how much longer it will be before they cut out the football games on the regular channels and tell the fans if they want to see the games they will have to pay to go in person or pay to see it all on Sunday Ticket.

Kurt Kitner – John does a much better job than when you had to play the year Vick was hurt.

You’ve never heard Blank threatening to move the team out of the city like Benson did during Katrina though. Some fans, some owner, ha?

Listened to 790 this morning. IfI missed it I apologize, but I didn’t hear any Falcons this morning. I heard more about Lolo Jones this morning than about game tonight.

Hey Esquire – Your starters will do OK against our rookies. The Ravens are saving their starters for the playoffs.

John Michaels, Hans Heiserer, and Dave Archer do a great job protecting my team. They are better cheerleaders than the ones I have on the field. Have you heard the Michaels promos? One is yelling at fans for criticising Mike Smith the other yelling at fans for not supporting Matt Ryan compared to Alex Smith.

As a matter of fact. The whole station is carrying my waterother than Bell and the 2 Stews (because they don’t have secondary income paying positions affiliated with the team).

I was walking down the street with my friend and he said, “I hear music”, as if there is any other way you can take it in. You’re not special, that’s how I receive it too. I tried to taste it but it did not work

How about a list of players that aren’t playing tonight? All we get is a list of “5 players to watch” that are all scrubs. Nice, in-depth coverage.
