An updated PreSeason schedule is attached.

In addition to the initial press release listing Nationally Broadcast games, we now have a scattering of other game times and dates announced.

CAUTION: If the "TIME" column is not shown for a game, that indicates that we do not know the day of the week or the time that game will be played. We only know that those games will be played within the week shown.

 

EDIT: 5/4  This early release schedule has been removed.  Please see today's post (5/4/13) for the finalized version just released by the NFL.

Thanks for sharing.

It also reminds me to start thinking about the annual "am I going to renew NFL Sunday Ticket?" cycle many of us go through...

Here's the analysis for the 2012 Season. There may be some minor variations this year. The additional Thursday Night game schedule begun last year really lowered the value of SundayTicket.

Last year, after many, many years of subscribing to SundayTicket, I made the momentus decision and opted out. Yeah, it is a tough decision.

Trying to implement a table structure using BBCode

See this first effort below.

 

The original table, last week, was 991 bytes.

That same table today, using BBCode, is 2,643 bytes; just about as clumsy

as it can get.  It is clear that BBCode is not our salvation to presenting tabular data.

 

Why the large white space in the midst of the post?  I dunno...

Good analysis if you just want to watch football. Sunday Ticket has always been about WHAT teams you want to watch more than just watching football.

It also varies by location. Some get more value from Sunday Ticket (if you live in an area that has local games blacked out). Some get less (if you live close enough to two markets that may get an extra free game (like Baltimore/Washington some weeks).

How about adding a price per game to the analysis (based upon standard non-discount pricing)?

Many markets don't get the 3 free games due to local blackouts and when your local team is an afternoon game on CBS when Fox has the double header and vice versa.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Right on - it is WHAT team you want to watch. But the price per game just muddies the decision process. It looks like this year, the $225 price for 153 games works out to $1.50 per game.

*However* - an example: in Week #2 of my 2012 chart, SundayTicket has 10 games. If one of those 10 is your real motivator, you need to admit that it is costing you $15 to see that game. It is not as if you plan to watch all ten of those SundayTicket games.

The only meaningful analysis is to look at the schedule for YOUR team - and see how many times it is on:
Thursday Night
Sunday Night
Monday Night
Thanksgiving or
a free Regional Sunday game in your area

Then, divide the number of only-on-SundayTicket games into $225 to see your real cost per game. It will be expensive.

True. But unless you write an app for us to use, everyone has to do it for themselves. :)

I need to see every game that my team plays, don't care about the cost. My team on one TV and RedZone on the other TV, priceless.

Searching for options to display data without using the 'table' function which has been lost.

 

Does this scheme of attaching a jpeg seem like a good workaround?

 

 

EDIT:  5/15:  deleted the jpg attachment.  See a later post with updated information.

Here is the analysis chart, updated with the 2013 Season Schedule.  While the spread of bye weeks is different this year, the bottom total analysis of SundayTicket versus Free Games is still fundamentally the same.
 
We can't do tables yet, so please check out the attached jpg...

Good stuff! Thanks for posting that, Gary.

 

I'll probably get NFL ST again this year. I'm a Chargers season ticket holder and I am at every game. My interest in NFL ST is more about watching as much football as I can.
