    There are no state teams. None.

    I lived in Pennsylvania for the first 21 years of my life and rooted for ZERO teams from the state. Not the Steelers. Not the Eagles. Not the Phillies.

    No state teams. Want the Steelers, move somewhere near Pittsburgh. Cause Harrisburg ain't nowhere near it.

    Not to nitpick but this week's is missing the Game Mix logo by ch. 702. At least for the Central time zone one because that's the one I download...

    These schedules are produced with great precision. Therefore, I screwed up and left off the Mix logo on every schedule for every time zone.

    Sorry :(

    When I tune to that channel it takes about 5 seconds before the yellow box appears. It works properly right now.

    Sometimes when the yellow box disappears, I can still change audio using the green button on the remote.

    I'm hoping D* gives us a 2 screen Game mix for the late games (only 2 of them) this week. I know I could always just USE side-by-side pip on my HR34 but it would still be nice to have.

    The Week #10 schedules are now posted.

    A couple of notes:

    The Los Angeles market stations have not yet announced what games they will be carrying for Week 10, hence no LSAN specific schedule.

    For next week, Week 11, Sunday Night Flex has not been exercised. However, the Colts/Patriots game has been moved from the early game slot to an afternoon game slot (4:25 EST).

    For some reason the niner's game is blacked out on 714. You can still see on 713 though.

    Noticed something very interesting while watching Sunday Ticket today. I thought I'd share it with you guys.

    First off, let it be known that this observation has no bearing whatsoever on the vast majority of ST viewers. You see, I'm one of the rare bunch that watch multiple games (along with Red Zone and Game Mix) simultaneously on multiple TVs.

    Anyhow, to get back on point, I've always admired the ST production crew for doing an excellent job on broadcasting all the games (especially RZC) week after week. What I like most is that all the game feeds shown on Game Mix, RZC, and the corresponding channels in the 700s are all in sync (the video and audio are all within a fraction of a second of one another).

    My main TV is tuned to Red Zone and when glancing at the other TVs, it helps to have all feeds in sync. But, because the games designated for local broadcast in my DMA (Los Angeles) have to be watched on their respective local channels, those local feeds are no longer in sync with ST. They are usually off a few seconds or so. I know it's nitpicking, but those delays have always bothered me. I would regularly tune to the West Coast DNS feeds or OTA feeds to the get the video as close to in-sync as possible.

    Recently, I've noticed that our local Fox feed has become in sync with ST. But, CBS was still off.

    However, today CBS was perfectly timed with the other feeds.

    I'm hoping that things will remain the same from now on. Perhaps it was just a coincidence, but if D* did indeed do something to "adjust" the feeds, I am very grateful that they did.

    The Thanksgiving/Week 12 Schedule is posted.

    The Los Angeles stations have not yet announced which games they are carrying on Sunday, hence we have no Los Angeles specific schedule.

    So the 49ers get the prime time game for the 2nd week in a row, while other match-ups get ignored? The oldest rivalry in the NFL, the Packers @ Bears, which is a bigger game than the 49ers and Seahawks, would seem to be a bigger game. I'd bet the farm that its ratings would blow away the 49ers-Seahawks, too.
