Now that I know the rule, the thing that frustrates me the most is that FOX switched over to a couple of commercials before going to the Cowboys game. They could have continued showing the Texans game for 1 more minute instead of showing the commericals. That would have been enough time to watch the ending.

Even if what KTBC saying is true about the rule, there was no good excuse for blaming the rule IN THIS CASE. Had they waited until 3:15 instead of cutting over at 3:09 or 3:10, they could have shown the entire game -- and their voicemail, e-mail and Facebook feeds don't get crushed with a bunch of angry fans.

When the game is over before 3:15 you can't blame the rule.

Exactly. There was no need to switch over to the Cowboys.

Same switch at KYLE in Bryan-College Station. That's the cities that are 1.5 hours from Houston, but 3 hours from Dallas.

I have to wonder, if both games were being carried on the CBS affiliate, would the same thing have happened? Personally, I doubt it...

It might be that the NFL is the one to contact, if this is really an NFL rules issue. About 15 years ago, I had an issue regarding TV coverage, and wrote a letter to the NFL. I was amazed to receive a direct, and personal, response letter from them.

Don't you miss the good-ol-days when letters came in the mail... not just junk and bills?

The Texans are aware and ask you complain to your local station to let them know which market they are.

FOX Austin finally feeling the heat.....they are still getting bombarded....

(from their facebook);
myFOXaustin
We are sorry for the inconvenience with the games yesterday. We will be posting a statement in regards to what happened shortly. We know a lot of you are upset, and again, we apologize for all of the confusion.

https://www.facebook.com/myfoxaustin


----------------

I posted on their site the email that Wolf got from an affiliate that essentially exposes their BS about "it was on the NFL" so we'll see what they say. Feel free to keep barraging them even if you don't live here.....

For those that think me and other Austinites are obsessing on this, keep in mind for a solid year or 2 we barely got to see games ON CBS thanks to VY being with the Titans so Tenessee was essentially the home games so Horn jock swingers could keep reliving the glory days and Houston fans in Austin were forced to go to sports bars every weekend as if we lived in a whole different part of the country. So this is a sensitive issue where we feel we get screwed as Texans fans a lot here in Austin.

Keep in mind we are IN Austin, closer to Houston than Dallas and especially Tenessee, so this is complete bull shit.

Read the rules and you will understand that none of the people who are complaining are located within the cowpies primary or secondary markets and therefore there is no rule that requires the mandatory showing of their crap games

Their response... *Insert Godzilla facepalm pic here*

Quote:
KTBC is considered a home market for the Dallas Cowboys and is subject to the NFL mandatory kickoff rules. NFL rules dictate that we must begin coverage of the Cowboys game at the scheduled kickoff time. FOX Sports is responsible for the timing of the mandatory kickoff transition. It is not under the control of the local affiliate. We apologize for not being able to provide the Austin viewers with the conclusion of the Houston Texans game.
edit: People's response to that flammed them even more! They seem to kno the rules and called bs

It is complete and total BS.
Quote:
Most teams also designate secondary markets. In order to be designated as a secondary market, a portion of it must be located within 75 miles of the stadium. Not all teams designate all markets within 75 miles as secondary markets. For instance, the Bengals designate Dayton, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky as their secondary markets, although not Louisville even though Louisville stations reach within 75 miles of Cincinnati.

Primary and secondary markets are required to air all road games of the team in question, and are not allowed to air blacked out home games (see below).

Just because all (or most) games of a given team air in a given market does not necessarily mean it is a designated secondary market. Again, the ONLY markets that can be designated secondary are those whose stations reach within 75 miles of the stadium. For instance, all stations in Texas air Cowboys games whenever possible, but only those whose signals reach within 75 miles of Cowboys Stadium are officially secondary markets.

"To contact the FOX network directly call (310) 369-9111 or email askfox@fox.com"

How lame....clearly being beaten to a pulp and still clinging to their BS excuse that holds no water.
