Default Re: Austin TV for Bucs/Texans pre-season

But what does that have to do with CW? They weren't the one canceling our games, they picked it up our pre-season games when CBS decided to show the Cowboys over us. CBS is the one you're mad at, avert your anger to them.

But, if that post was meant for CBS then yea I agree they suck donkey nuts.

I do not care what channel the game is shown on. Put the damn thing on Lifetime or Oxygen for all I care just as long as it is on. Granted I would have to call Bill to find out where that is located at but at least I know someone who would know. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

No not the whole town. I am sure the local weather channel is not at fault. What is wrong with thinking that a stating in Texas should show both the cowgirls and the Texans. Very easy concept.

I would not think that Dublin, Ohio would show cowgirl games over either Browns or Bengals.

Wait hold on - let me explain further. CW is not showing ANY game over the Texans. NBC is showing the Jags and Skins. The person I've been in contact with works at KXAN (NBC) and KNVA (CW) in Austin. They're in the same building and operate out of the same place. When I first emailed them, they thought I was talking about NBC - because I didn't realize that CW and NBC were in the same building.

CW isn't showing ANY game on Thursday. They just have their regular programming... sitcoms and whatnot. The CW decision has nothing to do with Skins/Jags or NBC or any of that.

Well, the thing is, one person decides what to put on during gameday. He can put anything he wants, the NFL doesn't enforce a rule that say "Only teams in the state can be broadcasted by the station thats in the same state". I guess we should blame whoevers in the NFL office that didn't make that rule.

Gary Vinsion is the one that choses which game he wants to play on sunday. I don't see how his decision reflects off the head dude over at CW. If CW was the official channel of the AFC, then maybe the head hancho would play Texans everyweek. No matter how bad they are or how low their ratings are, he might play them everyweek and it'll rest in his hand. Ohio might not show the Cowboys, but they could. It's up to their director. Most likely they will get their building burned down by an angry mob, but it's not illegal to not show them, it just wouldn't be very smart if it was in the team's own town.

Texans isn't in Austin team, if it was then the rating would be in single digit if they showed another team. Austin is Texas fan first, Cowboy fan second, and Texans fan third. It isn't like Texans blew both Cowboys/Titans out in ratings here in Austin. But maybe if it was the town of Houston then then the Cowboys/Titans rating would probably be close to 1%, in comparison, against the Texans. Vinision can show the Titans here in Austin and get away with it because people actually would tune in to watch their hometown college's hero play. If Titans were getting blown out by Texans in rating every time they compare them, then he'll probably have to show the Texans don't you think?

And if it was up to the fans, well going by your chart, we'll be shown everyweek. (didn't look at the chart, just assuming that we have better rating.)

But, it doesn't matter if we argue about it. It still won't change the fact that CBS42 can change the game schedule anytime.

Obviously I have not made myself clear .............................


YES I know cw is not airing any games. BUT THE TEXANS ARE NOT BEING SHOWN PERIOD!!

NBC is showing ....... Jags vs Redskins
CBS is showing ....... Vikings vs cowgirls

Now tell me how F'n stupid is that. I understand why Houston is not getting the cowgirls and just as such I would suspect the Texans are not shown in dallas. I live in Austin which does not have a pro team so I should get both the Texans and cowgirls.

So excuse me if I am not happy that the team I root for and love is being screwed. Did not know I should not complain about MY TEAM not being shown.

Sorry I did not know I was supposed to be freak'n happy they are not going to be shown I will try and do better next time.

yeah right.

Do not even get me started on the ratings lie Gary shoves out. He took Titans/Cotls and compared it to Texans/Raiders I probably still have that email. So that line about the ratings was pure unadulterated crap. Not to mention the ratings for sports are so wrong it is not even funny. A single male can not get a box because of the fact it would screw the ratings for the TV shows.

Oh and preseason means nothing about who has rights to AFC or NFC, for example ABC in Houston is the official preseason home of the Texans, that is why you see Bob Allen on the sidelines asking Ahman Green all those stupid questions. ABC in Houston has a contract rights with the Texans for the rights to those games. Just like last year CBS here in Austin had the contract rights, of course they also had the contract right and we got hosed there as well. Who ever at the Texans office who did the negotiating for that deal did not have a clue what they were doing.

BigWig can tell you exactly how I feel on this subject because we were all up in Gary's business with tons of emails when they started this crap with titans games.

Furthermore, it is not just about the ratings and money generated from pro football that Gary has to be worried about. The boosters and ex-UT alumni are and will always be very powerful here in Austin and what they want they usually get. Ratings for pro football be damned.

Like I said, If it was up to the fans, they'll be showing Texans everyweek on CBS, going by the ratings.

Why isn't CW showing Texans today? Prime time television, I suppose. They're showing Smallville and Supernatural today, don't know if they have a contract to show them every Thursday or not. Either way I bet those shows would get better rating then the 4th pre-season game of the Texans.

ABC? I have no idea why they aren't showing th Texans this pre-season, contract end?

CBS. Cowboys is showing.

Anyways, you can't go bashing CW. If it wasn't for them you would've had to watch the Texans on CBS secondary channel.... if you had HDTV that is. Isn't a problem for me since I have HDTV, but how bout other Texans fan that doesn't? CW saved our butts the last two weeks, so you being ungrateful for it is so ignorant.

If you're mad about them not showing the pre-season game in which only back-ups play, then I wonder how your ungrateful-self would've reacted if CW didn't show the first two pre-season games. People like that can kissed my ass for all I care.

They didn't show the games on the KEYE secondary channel. Their contract for Texans pre-season games is kaput. It was CW or nothing at all.

You obviously just found out about this situation and have no clue as to what we Austinites have had to deal with. There's no way you would say that if you did know.

Oh, even better. If CW didn't pick it up, nobody in Austin could watch those first two game. Thanks for nothing CW!

They aren't showing it today for a reason, Smallville and Supernatural, is their money cows. What do they show around 7pm on Saturdays? Crap. Thats why they pick our games up, better rating. I dunno maybe ALL CW stations have to show Smallville/Supernatural on their regular time, maybe they have a contract for it. I don't know. But you shouldn't be an ass to them when they did was help us out.

Umm I live in Austin and yea I went through the post-2006 draft controversy.

You obviously just found out about my situation and have no clue as to what I also had to deal with.

I too had to go 40 minutes downtown to watch my team play. All that junk.

I was there!

EDIT: That's why I'm grateful for CW showing our games. Like DIehard said it was either CW or nothing. CBS screwed us again and CW came to our rescue. Well atleast to my rescue, some fans didn't give a crap.
