TOUCHDOWN DETROIT LIONS
Sorry about all
the bad posting.


I have a simple idea I wish to put on the table: Abolish the 1pm game.

The idea is simple. 1) 1pm is not a good market on Sunday. People do poo poo on Sunday, like church or whatever. 2) Early games encourage people to basically be wasted by mid-day. This, to me, creates an unnecessary risk of drunk driving, specifically during daylight hours when normal people would be out and about. 3) Personally, I work late nights on Friday and Saturday, and haven't seen a 1pm game in a year or so.

The idea is basically shift all time tables over from current standing. 4pm would be the new 1pm, 8pm the new 4pm, and SNF would always be a double header.

Thoughts?

My thoughts are I think your idea is bad for a lot of reasons, but the biggest one is that the congestion involved in football games currently makes it so that most people don't see a lot of teams besides the one in the NFC East, and compressing the schedule into two timeslots only makes things worse. Also titling your argument COLON AN ARGUMENT makes you sound like an rear end in a top hat, so in conclusion I'm adding you to my ignore list.

Hail to the king baby!

This is actually sort of a valid argument on the West coast where 1pm game = 10am game. Though it's really more of an argument of no 1pm games for West coast teams who are playing on the East coast because it's a little ridiculous to expect teams to play at 10am.

This is a reasonable argument that I would listen to, because the current situation probably hurts viewership as well as the west coast teams themselves.

Better idea: spread out the games more. Nobody goes to loving church anymore, so put a game on at 10 AM on the East coast.

And have the Seahawks play in it.

I don't understand why they can't just make a rule that all games involving west coast teams, where ever they are played, must start in the second set of games.

fake edit: wake up, do yardwork, go to the grocery store to buy your meat around noon, season your meat in the early games, cook during the late games, open your first beer and consume the meat during snf

I could give a shit about all that.

I along with many others, have an agreement with my S/O about football which is as long as I spend the morning doing what she wants, I get left the hell alone during the games. Do you really want to extend people's honey-do list? Think about how many divorces you're about to be responsible for.

Dumb idea. Also learn to get up at a reasonable hour and drink coffee.

My shifts start around 4-5 and I like being able to actually watch football when I'm not at work with a billion things demanding my attention, so your idea sucks.

Related, this would be utter hell on newspaper/print media deadlines on the East Coast. I now eagerly await sick burns about newspapers dying, etc.

It's less that they can't, and more that they don't want to. The format for NFL games on Sunday is pretty simple:

1) Pull the SNF game off the pile.
2) Pick a "National Game of the Week" from the games available, slot it at 4pm.
3) Any west coast home games go in the 4pm slot.
4) Everything else at 1pm.

They want everyone on the one big game for the week. 1pm is supposed to be the football free-for-all, and 4pm is supposed to be everyone watching one big game. They just can't fit everything into that schedule, so west coast home games get exempted and go into the 4pm slot, just because 10 AM home football games are insane, but their road games are a different story.

They don't play in October.


I wouldn't be against staggering any early games involving West Coast teams a little later (maybe 2 pm or 2:30 pm Eastern), but I think that's about it. And for TV reasons, that's really unlikely to happen.

I was going to make a joke about how the Jaguars will be bigger underdogs against the Broncos than Alabama would be against the Jaguars...and then I saw simulations and other speculation online that suggests that's probably true. Well, there you go, Jags.
