Add utilites, cable, DSL, Groceries, Loans, Credit Cards, Car Insurance, and Gas, and you have one broke Texas fan. DON'T MOVE TO BOSTON. IT'S TO EXPENSIVE!!

This Sirius Satellite Radio is offering streaming stats, scores, and player updates (which satifies my addiction to fanasty football) on all games for only $10 bucks a month (unless there are some hidden fees). I have heard nothing but positive things about Sunday Ticket but it is really out of my budget. And at that price, it would mean cutting out food and my game day six pack! I noticed Sirius Satellite Radio while browsing the web and it works into my budget. I just need to know if anyone uses it and/or likes it.

Thanks for the response JD,

I was in the same boat last year here in Florida--no way in the WORLD that a Texans game would get on the air here. (Even the sports bars would switch their Sunday Ticket TVs away from Houston games to add screens for Dolphins games.) DirecTV wasn't an option and it's the only way to get Sunday Ticket.

So I ordered NFL Field Pass online from Real Networks. I think it cost $35 for the whole season, and gave me all the live radio feeds from all 32 teams via internet. Except for some screwups from the Texans' side of the broadcast early in the season, it worked GREAT...and gave me a chance to switch broadcast crews and hear the other team's crew talk about something that happened in the game. I left my TV on the local CBS affiliate, and major plays would pop up on "Game Break" when they happened.

It wasn't perfect, but it's how I survived last season! This year I'm biting the bullet and getting the dish...
