Anybody know if that Sirius agreement will be for games in your region, or you'll be able to hear all NFL games?

KJ, I think the following quote from the article mentioned above answers your question:
 
"'For the first time ever, football fans will have the opportunity to hear radio play-by-play of their favorite NFL team -- called by their favorite local announcers -- no matter where they are in North America.'"

A true blessing for a truckin' football fan. As I found out last season, the Neckcar fans out number the  football fans in this line of work by a considerable margin. If I was lucky enough to be at a truckstop during game time, best hope there was no racin' going on at the time.

Not to mention the acknowledgment from a "competitor" by headlining this report.

It would be so much better if I actually got the NFL Network.  I ask my cable provider every other month, they say they are 'looking into it.'

Thats part of the reason I have to switch to DirectTV.  Sunday ticket is the other part.  My cable provider sucks, and that completes the trifecta.
 
But first I need a real job.

"Good news" from a different direction.  From "The REAL Feed":

Tagliabue has officially agreed to the new deal, announced last March, to extend his current contract that would have expired after next season, league officia...

 
I like Tagliabue, so I think this is good news.  To some he may be no Pete Roselle, but I think he has done a tremendous job holding the league together and promoting it.

Somewhat ironic thread title to be bumping today.
 
In any event, the NFL is considering prime-time flex schedules for games late in the season:
 
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2020233.
 
Any thoughts?  I don't know.  Seems to me, but perhaps someone out there has a persuasive take on this.  If so, I'd love to hear it!

I actually watched part of an NFL Europe game this weekend.  Not too horrible.  GO Rhine Fire!!!
 
This might have been mentioned somewhere else, but I really like them putting their NFL team logo on the front of the jersey.  That  was a great idea.
