Out In Left Field / Re: 2014 NFL season
« Last post by AussieEvil on Today at 04:17:39 AM »

It's actually quite simple. Expounding upon what Bill said, the way the deals work for FOX and CBS is that they cover the away games of the NFC and AFC, respectively. It makes no difference when NFC/AFC  teams play other NFC/AFC teams because there will always be an away NFC/AFC team so it doesn't come into play. But when there are interconference games it does. It's because of this rule that CBS gets to cover a Thanksgiving Game in the first place. Although, now, thanks to new flexing rules, Thanksgiving Day will feature all NFC on NFC games for the first time since the merger and CBS will still air one of those games.

With the Thursday games, will it be a CBS Sports production or an NFL Network production on CBS?

1 of the earliest games I remember seeing on Fox was when Joe Montana, playing for the Chiefs, beat Steve Young and the eventual Super Bowl 29 Champion 49ers. I do have 1 curiosity about football on television though. In interconfrence games the games air on Fox if the AFC team is the home team and on CBS if the NFC team is at home. It seems to me it should be the other way around. Since Fox is the NFC network and CBS is the AFC network it would make more sense if during interconfrence games Fox would cover those where the NFC team is the home team and CBS to cover those where the AFC team is the home team.
I'm not sure exactly why that is, but perhaps it is so the broadcast teams get to visit all 32 stadiums versus just those in their conference.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Back to Price...15 years later!
« Last post by TPIRob on Yesterday at 11:56:55 PM »
Great info, joshlemere...thank you!  Seems like some things have definitely changed.  Pictures while in line...and lunch!?  None of that 15 years ago, but it was still a ton of fun...even having to wait for hours.  I am so looking forward to it again!

So you say that you went to the second taping, which from what I see is ticketed for 12:00pm, but you say it didn't start til' 5?!  We are probably going to the 8:30am taping.  No idea what time to get there for that....

Thanks for this bit....anyone have anything else to add?  Any of you go to the 8:30am taping?

I agree with the reasoning behind the rule change; I don't agree with the rule change.

Perhaps this would be a fair addendum: If one wishes to vote 11-0, there needs to be a damn good reason why, which needs to be given up-front. Reasons such as "I'm a so-and-so fanboy" or "I don't like this show" or "I've never seen this other show" are not good reasons, and should be ignored.

Likewise, perhaps at this point it's time to bring back one of Firey's old rules instead: if you've never seen a particular show, or haven't seen enough of it where you can't make a reasonable vote one way or the other, you need to simply not vote one way or the other for that match.

Fair enough? :)

Fair enough.  11-0 votes are still on.  However, yes, there needs to be a reasoning behind the 11-0 vote for it to count.  If anyone wants to change their score, you can post it.

I guess I'm easily swayed. :-P

Prizes' edit: If you do switch, I'll just put your second post as the content of your original post, so there's a lack of confusion here and for overall ease. :) ~Jessica

I'm going to go with the level of difficulty when it comes to the questions being asked on the show. So with that I'm going for the upset and picking The Joker's Wild for the win. I will give points to Jeopardy based on its popularity. 7-4 The Joker's Wild.

Match Game and Hollywood Squares. Both memorable and funny. I think I will go with the one that was more "wild" and something extra in between or so. Match Game 7-4.
