    Signs are pointing towards next tues. April 13th. Apprently it showed up on TV guide that ESPN2 or 3 had a 7pm EST spot listed as 2010 NFL SCHEDULE RELEASE SHOW.

    Based on past years this will be the date. Last year it was the 14th (2nd tues in April). It has always been around the 14th, always on a tues.

    Dont think this was posted anywhere else, if it was plz merge

    Hmmm.... I could not find that same listing on espn.com In fact... I went to nfl.com and on the bottom right of the page I saw the NFL schedule coming soon promo... and says exclusively by NFL.com and NFL Network.

    Then I just found this.

    http://www.footballnewsnow.com/2010/report-nfl-to-release-2010-schedule-later-this-week-early-next/

    So I guess its still up in the air as to exactly when...

    The complicated riddle that is the NFL regular-season schedule has not been solved yet, and all we know for sure at this point is it will be out before the NFL draft begins next Thursday night in New York City.
    League schedule-makers continue to work on the 256-game slate, and a league spokesman confirms to SI.com that the NFL now hopes to announce it by "later this week or early next week."

    On an otherwise really boring TV night, I was looking forward to this tonight. Oh well.

    Why do you want to get rid of him? Cause the schedule is delayed?

    They don't want it random with the McNabb led Skins going against the Eagles at noon with Sunday night football featuring the Rams against Detroit.

    Exactly.

    What they should do is just randomize them all and then select the games from each week to be in primetime. That might be hard though, if there are many good matchups one week, and them badones the next.

    I think you have to take into account traveling schedules, holidays, trades, rivals, and 100 other things. I can see how it could be complicated like the NCAA tournament.

    But they've had since February to figure out the schedule.

    I know they're waiting on trades etc.....

    The draft is almost here and Goddell's minions still haven't done their jobs. UGHHH !!!!!!

    I'm guessing the issue has much more to do with sticking a bunch of divisional games at the end of the schedule. Because of that, they are working with a new matrix and likely encountered unanticipated issues.

    Just a guess though.

    I'm sure they generated several different schedules and then there's probably some committee or something that's going through the options trying to agree on the "best" one.

    I mean, whatever issues you have randomly generating a schedule, even with the non-random requirements, should be able to be solved in less than a day from the programming perspective. This has got to be the NFL officials dithering.

    Its a puzzle, for every problem there is a solution. They need to make it happen already.
