    Thanks early games, I missed the whole 1st quarter (here in SA) because of all the OT games, and CBS thinking I want to see the end of them........:brickwall:

    yeah it was B.S. I can understand finishing the first game which was the bengals, but then going to 2 other games that were in OT. Made no sense to me.

    The nice thing is late games tend to get national billing out here. I actually got to watch a game on tv@!

    Yeah, I'm with you on that. I had to miss the first quarter of the Texans game, but there are sites online where you can watch for free. Granted, it's really crappy quality, but it's better than nothing. It's how I cope with living out of town without Sunday Ticket.

    But you can't complain too much. Late games give us a better opportunity to watch the game on TV. If it were an earlier game, I probably wouldn't be able to even watch the Texans.

    Fortunately my solution was simple... walk to the other side of the bar. :kitten:

    You should definitely call the network and complain about having to do that. :foottap:

    I'm not even close to being done with our local affiliate KEYE.

    They say New York is to blame. I guess since my Texan brothers and sisters in San Antonio, Kerrville, Amarillo, you name it, they could be telling the truth. However, until I get an answer that satisfies me they will rue this day.

    When the rules are the same for us as they are for the Cowboys I will rest. Until then, Fred Cantu (Not KEYE, but a known Texan hater) & Company can kiss my ass. I heard some props about KEYE during the preseason about their treatment of the Texans, I didn't buy it and for good reason.

    No sir. If they take orders from NY for Texan games, yet for Cowboy games there is a contract nobody dares to tread on, phone calls and yelling is on the horizon from this Texan fan. That setup is simply unacceptable for the best team in Texas.

    This didn't happen in Waco, my brother was able to see the Texans game in it's entirety. So, they're claiming it wasn't their decision to make is a lie.

    My friend has Direct TV and NFL package and watched the game from beginning to end here in Round Rock. I know this becuase at the 25 minute mark on her recording, she took a photo capturing me and my bronco buddy in the stands. I get home from Denver and fire up the DVR and go to the 25minute mark on my recording, it’s still the KC v NO overtime game! Then they went on to show the end of the freaking Jets v Dolphins OT game. KEYE didn’t pick up the coverage until it was 14-5 with 10:45 left in the 2nd quarter AT 3:42pm! I would have been PISSED!!!!!!
