Default So this is what NFLN thinks of us...

According to the NFLN website's upcoming schedule, the following will be broadcast at 11:00 pm Eastern on Saturday:


NFL PRESEASON GAME: HAM vs. SF


Guess they can't make it less obvious anymore, huh?

Well it doesn't suprise me when I see that our game is only replayed once and at 6am in the morning even after our game was played on Saturday. Yet Dallas plays on Sunday Night and their game is played the next Monday along with about 5 more replays of Patriots and Steelers games.

Ham. LOL. If our 1s don't beat up on their 1s something is wrong. We should be able to take SF easily enough.

What did y'all expect? A game featuring a team without any nationally following versus a team that projects to be one of the worst in the NFL this year. Why would the NFLN replay it in a prime spot?

I would at the very least expect an League Owned Network to get the initials of one of its own franchises correct. Maybe that's asking too much...

Definitely true, but I'm feeling ornery today so I sent this message to them through the contact us page:

Quote:
I am contacting you in reference to your preseason broadcast schedule located on the following webpage:

http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/networ...08%2F27%2F2011

Specifically, my complaint is regarding this note:

NFL PRESEASON GAME: HAM vs. SF

I am a Houston Texans fan and find it very annoying that you have used the initials HAM to abbreviate the Houston Texans regarding their matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. As a league-owned network this is very unprofessional and unbecoming of you.

It appears as though one of your developers has a bias against the Houston Texans, and has let this show. While I understand that some teams get more attention due to their popularity, I find it entirely ridiculous that you would ridicule one of the teams in such a manner.

Due to this incident, I am inclined to cease visiting the www.nfl.com websites, and turn my attention to www.espn.com instead.
I'm kind of hoping I get either a "we're so sorry" overly apologetic for nothing letter...or an "eff off you *****" letter. Either would be rather amusing.

At least the Oilers were a team in this city. WTF did they get HAM from? Maybe from an IPHONE's autocorrect...

It looks like NFL and NFL Europe merged and Hamburg is playing SF.

I would hazard a guess that the slots on the schedule are filled by a drop menu, and with the NFLN now playing so many CFL games, the data entry monkey grabbed the HAMilton Tiger-Cats instead of the Houston Texans.

HAM is too good for this teams history. I'm thinking something derived from ham with a few chunks of unknown origin, mashed all together and thrown in a can.

Therefore, it should read SPAM vs. SF
