Re: NFL Thread Pt. II

Hey now, the Lions and Saints both have potentially explosive offenses.

Other than that, i gotta agree that it's been a strange year, and you didn't even mention the anthem nonsense.

This is normal.

I thought it was weird when all the hubbub with Trump made the anthem a huge focus. Aside from big games like the Super Bowl, Conference Championships, or (maybe) the season Opener, the anthem really doesn't get played on TV. I mean, regular season games usually have some high school kid who maybe sort of did well on some TV show coming out and doing an admirable job with the song, but at 12:55 on a Sunday, the TV heads are busy going around the league with sideline reporters and giving last minute fantasy advice. And this used to apply to even Sunday and Monday night games. It's normal to NOT see it on TV before a football game.

This really applies to most national broadcasts of sports in general. Aside from the BIG games (Stanley Cup, World Series, NBA Championships), nationally broadcast games are usually in the studio doing the same thing they do before football games when the anthem is playing: "Keys to the Game", injury impacts, etc.

That being said, NESN, which broadcasts Red Sox and Bruins games locally, pretty much ALWAYS shows the anthem. Rene Rancourt is a New England treasure, but his vocal talents aren't exactly in the same class as Pavarotti, but they broadcast his performance every friggin' homegame. I love him, but yikes, he's no Trey Anastasio.

And the Red Sox play 162 games a season, 81 at Fenway. Their performers don't even need to be on a TV show to get the nod. They could have performed in a musical version of Waiting for Godot with their 8th grade Math Team, but somehow, here they are singing at Fenway. On TV all over New England. All are decent, and some deserve the spot, but man, there are some clunkers. In NESN's defense, Red Sox coverage starts about two hours before first pitch, so there's a lot of time to fill. Cut to the anthem. Remy needs to take a piss.

And NBA games? Same thing. Local coverage might play the anthem (Celtics is hit or miss depending on the start time), but national broadcasts rarely play it. The spectacle of player introductions generally takes the broadcast time away.

So yeah.
No anthem before football is normal.

Re: NFL Thread Pt. II

NESN copied that format from their big brother YES.

Yankee games on ESPN radio used to carry the anthem too. They may still, it's just been a really long time since i listened to a game on the radio.

Some upsets, but a little more of the status quo this weekend. Just glad the Pats rolled (like the fog) over Atlanta. Atlanta so aggressive they went fourth and long at midfield twice before NE even hit its stride. Good defense for the Pats, good special teams; offensive line improved but not quite there yet...overall a nice solid win and a feeling of normalcy returning.

Rams, Jags and Chargers (of all teams) shut out their opponents, and Chicago nearly did. Browns held the Titans to nine in regulation and got the ball first in OT but still couldn't win. Carson Palmer and Jay Cutler went down; not sure what this may mean for Palmer at his age. Miami played better with Matt Moore at QB than Cutler, and ought to stay with him even after Cutler heals up.

Green Bay needs to bring in a veteran to sub for Rodgers or this season's over for them; there are plenty available.

Best game of the week if you're neutral was the Thursday-nighter between KC and Oakland; what a finish.

Re: NFL Thread Pt. II

The 'Boys beat the 49ers, but they should've. What I particularly liked, is the complete and utter domination. 40-10!

I've said it for years, and I'll say it again. Football is a game that should be played in a domed stadium and on artificial turf. So let it be written, so let it be done.

We get one view throughout the game, because fog obscures every other one. Come on man! I say Peggy, Soup, Map and Brdmom should dig into their pockets and help Kraft build a domed stadium.

I wish Brian would stop by. He's the only Falcons fan I know around here. I'm curious what he thinks the problem with Atlanta is. My initial thought is the change at Offensive Coordinator. Has the departure of Shannahan (spl) meant this team has gone from the most offensive team in the League, to one who can't score against one of the worst Defenses?

Oh my Broncos, what is wrong with you guys??? The last few games you're falling apart after starting out pretty well in the season.

Sieman (spl) was running for his life most of the day. I was actually expecting Lynn to insert Lynch into the game.

What kind of a wussified football world do you live in, Hodge? If I had my say, the domes and the astroturf would be ripped out of every stadium in the country. Gillette is perfect.
