    Just checked the schedule. Shows FOX televising Steelers, not Texans. Anybody know anything about this?

    This is the only game that I expected Austin not to be showing the Texans. I know we have another FOX game but I think that is the one that does not conflict with the Cowgirls. We'll get confirmation from some of the other better informed Austinites on the board.

    Now's a good time to start planning the Austin party. Unfortunately, I won't be making it this time around.

    I don't really think that's on them. Austin's always been a big Cowgirl town. A bit different from the whole Vince Young/KEYE debacle. They're giving the masses what they want and rightfully so.

    It's not a conflict with the Cowboys. Schedule shows Vikings-Steelers at 12:00 and Cowgirls-Falcons at 3:00

    Not that it will do any good, I'm emailing and calling to express my frustration
    I hate having to ***** and beg to get the local team on local TV.

    We will most definitely NOT be seeing the Dec 13th game against the Seahawks. It's a FOX game, and they do not have the doubleheader. The Cowboys will be on in Austin that week.

    I assume this week's game is just a question of FOX not switching the guide over yet. I doubt they'll show game of the week over the Texans. We will have to make plans for Dec 13 though. All other games should be on in Austin.

    More info here

    By the way - if you guys find a good email for programming at the local Fox affiliate, let me know and all of us that have twitter/blogs/facebook etc will get the word out and get some emails sent. So far I can't find a good email for the programming dept.

    Thanks!

    I knew it was one or the other. I figgured this weekend but it'll be the next. I'm sure this one will be on TV after the Texans performances. We're making some noise.

    What an effing joke!

    On the bright side, I just scored my first pair of Texans tix in over a year with a parking pass, so I'll be there!!!

    Seriously though.....the TV markets here in regards to Houston (only 230 or so miles away) are seriously a joke!

    Dallas isn't even 230 miles away from Houston! I drive back and forth on a regular basis. It's about 166 miles.

    Two big cities, and it depends a lot on where you start from and end at, but downtown Houston to downtown Dallas is almost exactly 240 miles.

    166 miles works gets you from Conroe to Ennis.

    Dude, I live in Pflugerville and I make the trek to Pasadena on a weekly basis. Both are on the outskirts in the WRONG directions of their downtowns. It's 166 miles from Pflugerville to Reliant Stadium. Mapquest says 172 miles from Pflugerville to PASADENA (which is where I usually go). A far cry from the 230+ miles as originally stated.

    You're talking Austin, and I'm talking Dallas. One of us is confused, and I think it's me.

    Houston to Dallas is over 200 miles. 225 maybe? You're right.
