    Nothing was misinterpreted....everything you said was wrong to begin with.


    Fun though isnt it.

    & how is $210 for ST with the $120 credit crazy ? I think thats very reasonable.

    Oh & DTV is digital tv....D* is DirecTV.

    Sunday Ticket has included the same number of games since 2006 (when they went to 8 Thursday/Saturday night games) as far as I know. So how was what you said not wrong?

    I never said the total number of ST games was fewer.

    "I beg to differ. Have you counted the number of games offered through NFL ST on Sundays? I have, and I can tell you that there were fewer games on ST last year than in previous years, sometimes 2, 3, or 4 fewer per Sunday for the late starts especially."
    __________________

    You could argue that you only meant there were less late games but still the same number of games. But most wouldn't read it that way, they would think you were saying less games overall. Anyway now we are all in agreement about the so called "watering down" issue we can go on to other stuff. Bring this topic up again in 2014 and I will agree with you. I do like Thursday night football though.

    Again, misinterpreted because I clarified its original meaning.

    In other words we correctly interpreted a malformed post... :)

    This all started from a statement about ST being watered down because there are fewer games on ST.

    On the one hand, the concern is legit if the NFL sells 8 more games to "someone else." (Which was the original trigger to this subthread.)

    And we went into a direction to see if, in fact, the ST has been previously watered down. (Maybe by a few games over the entire season.)

    So now we are being told the "correct" interpretation of the malformed comment is only about Sunday late afternoon games, even though the triggering thought was real games lost to ST.

    Ah well, now we know that mud is not clear, ST has not really been watered down (as games haven't been lost), and some weeks have fewer late afternoon games.

    So back to watering down concept. I guess I don't mind losing 8 games to have more national games. Mostly because I get ST to watch the SuperBowl Champions, the team that has won more titles than any other team in the league... :) :) :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    But not more Super Bowls.

    That honor rightfully belongs to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    That is like saying the only team to have won the most Champoinships in the seasons the years the Lions won them... :)

    No, it's an accurate assessment. No team has won more Super Bowls than the Pittsburgh Steelers. :)

    And my analogy is also an accurate assessment in that you are limiting the field to an arbitrary number of seasons... :)

    I could just as easily say we'll limit the number of seasons to the last one... :)

    (Oh wait, I guess I did when I talked about the current champs.) :lol:

    Maybe we could talk about something else... the current Superbowl losers?

    Cheers,

    The current Super Bowl losers are the displaced fans involved in the seating fiasco at Cowboy Stadium. ;)

    That is a very true statement. :(

    Talk about a lockout and complete lack of plan...

    No I'm not. Quite simply, of all the Super Bowls played, no team has won more than the Steelers have.

    I'm the world's biggest Steeler fan and I happen to agree with you. NFL championships won before some reporter coined the word "Superbowl" were still NFL championships and should be counted.
    I do understand Vader's point and it is factual in that Superbowl era context and I'm proud of my team for having won six. I just wish they would acknowledge the fact that there was an NFL before 1967 and the Bears and Browns and Lions, etc did win championships.

    Lamar Hunt, who owned the Kansas City Chiefs coined the name Super Bowl, apparently inspired by the then new toy "Super Ball." (Hey, I remember them.)

    And the Steelers have done some amazing things to have won as many Super Bowls as they have.

    Aside from a short ownership squabble that I'm glad has been resolved, my sense is they have historically a first class operation (and still are.)

    Given what the Steelers have done, I am surprised they are not the second team to have won 3 consecutive championships.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Oh, stop sucking up to a mod here. :p

    People don't care about "NFL Championships." It's "Super Bowls" they remember. ;)
