This is a stay of execution.

It'll be official when a Texans game gets bumped in order to show a Titans game.

You would think Houston would show the Titans game also because there should be more interest for Texans fans being that they are a division rival.

As a Texans fan I would rather watch any AFC South team over the Vikings vs Bears.

In Austin, they almost always show a NFC East team when the Cowboys aren't playing because it's a game of interest to Cowboys fans.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. That's just because the Cowboys aren't on.

I'd rather watch Favre over Young. And I think Vince Young is a perfectly exciting player. That's just me.

I always have a strong rooting interest when the Titans are on. I could care less about the Vikings or Bears since they have no effect on anyone I root for.

And I get that. I understand exactly. I watch football because it excites me. Watching Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson is just a more exciting game to tune to for me. I like watching football, not cheap shots all game long. I know, y'all hate Jared Allen but I think Fisher-ball is more about getting the job no matter what it takes.

I see the Titans as of being the same as watching the Jaguars. Not really all that exciting to watch.

Today's game might be the last one shown in Austin for a while.

Next week:

Texans @ Jaguars, NOON CBS
Titans @ Colts, NOON CBS

Week 14:

Seahawks @ Texans, NOON FOX
Rams @ Titans, NOON FOX

Week 15:

Texans @ Rams, NOON CBS
Dolphins @ Titans, NOON CBS

That's three direct conflicts in a row. The fact that Fox changed the game this week from the national "game of the week" to the Titans game is definitely cause for concern, because it shows that the local affiliate has the power to change the game based on fan input or input from programmers at the actual station... that was also of course proven by our successful changing of the game of the week to the Texans/49ers game a while back.

Yep, we're going to be having some get-togethers in Austin in the next few weeks. Probably for ALL THREE weeks.

Wow. A 99 yard drive with 3 4th down conversions including the GWTD.

Yep, Austin is a Vince town again. It was fun while it lasted.

He'll probably knock off the Colts next weekend. No question that the CBS down in Austin will be showing Colts and Titans over the Texans and Jags. Hell, I would, too.

CBS national office makes the call for the game and I highly doubt that they'll opt to show the Titans. KEYE has no say in it since they're no longer a CBS owned station and so far, they've shown no inclination to show the Titans.

KEYE and CBS's loss.

You're wrong. Listen, we've been on top of this for three or four years now. The new programming guy at KEYE (the previous guy is no longer with the station) told me all about how the sale of the station has changed their ability to change the games based on what the locals want. It's simply not true. There were several games changed between Titans and Texans before AND after the ownership change was made.

KEYE made a commitment to show the Texans this year, but the guy who made that commitment - again - is no longer with the station.

The exact same thing happened with FOX earlier this year. We complained that SF/HOU wasn't on, and the answer was "we have no control over that." It's simply not true. If enough noise is made, they make the change. It really is that simple.

Default Re: It's started Austin

The station was sold on Feb 7, 2007, per wikipedia.

Vince didnt play at all in 2008 (Except part of the first game, but the Texans were shown in Austin for that http://the506.com/nflmaps/2008-01-CBS.html ).

So for all of 2008, and up to now, I dont think the Texans were preempted in favor of the Titans. I've traded emails with Gary Vinson (old guy) who was really helpful and responsive towards our noble cause. I think he's the one that made the call to show the Titans in 06 and 07.

The new guy (Dusty Granberry) sucks. All he does is respond to every email with the canned "out of my control" response. Here is the latest one that we got last week - "CBS network makes the decisions on what NFL games we will air. KEYE does not get to choose the games. Sorry I could not help you."

Unless the CBS HQ decides to put a blob in Austin, which I highly doubt, I think you guys will continue to get to see the Texans.

Those guys at KEYE determine what goes on no matter what they say. It seems they just make up stuff in response to all the emails they get. If they are showing something you don't want to see it's "out of their control". If they are showing something that you do want it's because they "are committed to their viewers" etc.

The Titans will preempt the Texans at some point this season. It will probably happen this Sunday. If not, it's going to happen the week after that. You can mark it down that it will happen this season.
