    Dammit, I only lasted 5 weeks without it.

    Had it reinstalled today. I can't stomach being forced to watch the Redskins at 1 and then the Cowboys at 4. Missed an exciting Eagles game, even though they lost.

    Same for me down here in the south. All I get is a steady diet of Saints, Falcons, Jaguars (will somebody please explain to me why people who should know better, i.e. sportscasters, insist on calling them Jag-wires?!?!), Dolphins and Buccaneers. Not exactly good football.

    What is worse is that this Sunday was the first week where there were two early and two late games on TV. Pathetic.

    For some lucky reason a Western Canada CBC channel has carried all of the Vikings games for the last few seasons. Otherwise it's 10 channels showing Green Bay or Buffalo and Cowboys at 4.

    Those Android boxes are pretty popular up here but the sports on them are pretty hit and miss in quality.

    I sill buy the NHL so I can stream it on my labptop, PS4, iPhone and iPad.

    FTR, don't bother with an android box running KODI. I use the Google Chromebox and OpenElec. Using a Intel chip makes it well worth the money. There are some great NFL feeds in the addons including RedZone.

    Yes, there is a Philly themed bar but I don't want a DUI.

    It's like deja-vu when we were kids. I was in North Jersey where we couldnt watch Giants home games(before the Jets) cause of the TV blackout of home games. Guys put these gigantic rotating antennas on their roof to bring in Philly TV to watch the Giants home games. Some guys even went as far as going south and chipping in on a motel room to watch the games in small screen black and white. Fans dont know how good they got it these days.

    Oh, hell, yeah, and it doesn't seem that long ago either. I would go just the opposite. I could pull in New York channels from the 'burbs just northeast of Philly. I would do that a lot to catch Eagles games.

    The 1960 NFL Championship game was blacked out in Philly because Franklin Field did not sell out. I was 11 years old and it was the day after Christmas. I begged Mom and Dad to let me stay home from the annual tour of the relations houses and listened to the game on an old Philco tube radio while playing with the slot cars I had gotten as a gift the day before. I went crazy as "Concrete Charlie" Chuck Bednarik sat on Charlie Taylor of the Packers as time ran out inside the Eagles 10 yard line. Years later, I shook hands with Chuck in the Acme around the corner as he was shilling his line of pierogies. His hands were massive and gnarled. I guess I was in my late '20's and I was thrilled to goose bumps over meeting him.

    OMG, I am such a lucky person! I'm sort of like Forrest Gump. I just happen to be where cool shit is going on.

    That 1960 game (listened on radio when I was 12) was on a Monday because Christmas was Sunday and NFL didn't play on Christmas. Believe only championship game played on Monday. I thought it was blacked out because it was a home game in Philly and all home games were blacked out in those days(could be wrong). I know sellout rule came later because Congress wanted to watch games in Washington.

    You could be right. It was a long time ago.

    Love that story Breeze esp about the slot cars for xmas and meeting Bednarick...Had a similar experience meeting Ray Nitschke..Huge hands I noticed and a real thrill as a GB fan as a kid growing up..

    Anyone else remember the TV guide used to show the games coming up on Sunday and they showed helmets and the team rosters?
