Take up with the NFL, not Fox or any affiliate. Terrible rule, but you have to force the Cowboys on all of us.

Is the NFL rule that they have to switch the feed to a COMMERCIAL break? I would be okay with it if they waited until the last possible second before the first snap...


But to a commercial break for a solid minute, then a pre-game show for the Cowgirls?

Hell no, that should NOT be allowed.

Yes, I believe the NFL rules force it at a specific time of day, not when the opening kickoff occurs -- not even if you're cutting over to a commercial when another tight game has :08 left. Asinine, but it is what it is.

Because (yuck) the Cowboys are considered the "home territory" for all of Texas (maybe not the Houston market, but everyone else), which means they force a switch at a certain time because the NFL won't let us potentially miss the opening kickoff of a (yuck) Cowboys game.

Atleast you got most of the game on TV. Lubbock jumped on the Tebow bandwagon and showed the Vikings/Broncos game. The Vikings have 2 wins...

That's frustrating. I'm glad we only have one more game on FOX and we don't have to worry about the Cowboys that week (week 15).

Maybe it is partially Fox's fault. They are required to give everyone the full Cowboys game, but I think they switched all these affiliates over a few minutes before required to at 4:15. Here's a wiki explanation:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_on_...-game_switches

Quote:
If the local team is scheduled for the late game of a doubleheader, it has importance over any early game. If 4:15 p.m. arrives, and the early game is ongoing, the primary affiliate (all games) and secondary affiliates (road games) are required to cut off the early game and switch to the start of the local team's game. Additional affiliates, including secondary affiliates for home games, may also request to cut off an early game for a nearby team's late start. This is common in Texas where many affiliates which are not considered secondary markets by the NFL still switch out of early games in order to get to the start of a 4:15 Dallas Cowboys game.
So maybe this *was* required, but not until 4:15, so I'd think Fox had its non-Houston "affiliates" in Texas all pull the plug a few minutes earlier than required. Boo.

My local FOX, XHRIO out of McAllen, Harlingen South Texas area showed the game in it's entirety, no interuption here, so it appears it was the local affiliate's decision to cut away, not FOX or NFL rules.

But what I don't understand is that *all* the Fox affiliates that did cut away ALL did so at the same moment. Maybe the affiliate makes the decision ahead of time and the network moves them all over to other coverage at the same time?

The station you mention starts with "X" so presumably it's physically in Mexico. Not sure if that matters in terms of the rules.

Also, I think south Texas is listed as a Texans market. Why I dunno... same with Beaumont and CC.

*edit: Think Ziggy's more right on this one.

I emailed KABB... I know it isn't them and i know it won't do any good.. it is a corporate thing but I emailed them saying basically.. whoever is throwing the switch ...think a bit..most fans will enjoy a game where it comes down to a play or two.. or even OT...I figure they will give that up over the kick off start of another game.

They should at least post the end of the game on their respective websites for viewers to see.
