Bucs Open Season On National TV Vs. Packers?February 7th, 2011
Peter King suggests that may change quite quickly.
The veteran NFL scribe in his must-read Morning Morning Quarterback, offers up a list of three games King has “a hunch” will open the season on Thursday Night Football.
I think the best candidates to open the season on Sept. 8 (and I use that phrase advisedly, because I, like you, fear the season won’t start on time because of the labor saber-rattling) would be these: 1. New Orleans at Green Bay; 2. Tampa Bay at Green Bay; 3. Chicago at Green Bay. Just a hunch.
Well, this is more than a hunch coming from King. At worst, an educated hunch.
Aside from the Satanic Time-Warner, which denies innocent Americans the right to watch the NFL Network, who else employs King? NBC Universal.
Who broadcasts the opening game on Thursday night of each NFL season? NBC.
You don’t think King was having a cocktail this weekend by chance with NBC sports executive Dick Ebersol who maybe let it slip what game(s) he is lobbying NFL
warden commissioner Roger Goodell to televise?
Do the math.
