Be aware folks. I'm not trying to be Debbie Downer here, but plan in advance. Don't rely on 'so and so said they did such and such last week' and be mad when they enforce these rules for SNF.

Is that when they won with a field goal as time expired? I was in the dark side then. I remember sitting in my seat with my head in my hands for about 10 minutes after that game.

Of course, since then we've sadly become desensitized to last second losses....

I think they mean the first time on SNF since it moved over to NBC a few years ago. It is now the PREMIER time slot for the NFL since it is not on cable. A different network, different operation so I guess they aren't counting before they switch.

When we played the Packers years ago, that was on ESPN on Sunday night and MNF was still on ABC, and then MNF was the premier game of the week. I think the switch happened when ABC acquired ESPN, the moved MNF to "cable" and SNF to regular network TV.

I was at that game, and was pissed that Longwell made that kick, stayed the night at the Holiday Inn and had to put up with cheese heads all night. Although they were cool fans, actually had a good time with them.

Seriously - NO comments about this? I swear if one person comes on here Monday and acts surprised about this, lifetime ban!

That is the main reason I posted the thread, I thought that needed to be out there for everyone to see. Thanks for emphasizing it.

There were a lot of questions earlier about the tailgating.

Also, the 2:20 Platinum lot open is going to be real close to the 2:30 time they are allowing people to line up for the other lots. I foresee a bit of a mess getting into the lot on Sunday.
