I've never understood how someone can watch a sporting event on a tape delayed basis.

 

Even if I don't know the score/outcome, the fact that millions of people already do keeps me from watching it.

It takes practice, but for me it's very rewarding. I can watch three recorded games simultaneously in less time than one live one. Or  simply watch my team and FF through commercials and time between snaps, as I did last night in the glorious show that was the second half of MNF. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

You must have misread my post, I never said that Sunday Ticket has games that air locally. I said the blackouts have NOTHING to do with the guide says, it's based on what is ACTUALLY airing. If Fox switches the game midrun because of a blowout, the blackout is lifted on the Sunday ticket channel, even if the guide says the original game is still airing locally. DirecTV, NFL, Fox, CBS and the local affiliates are in constant communication with eachother to lift blackouts when games switch, it has NOTHING to do with what a guide that was last updated Friday evening says.

You really should take a look at the behind the scenes look Solid Signal did:

Your link explained nothing about how the NFL works.

I don't understand how people watch them all
Live very often anymore. At the very least if you wait to start watching a game till there's about an hour left you will catch up to live and only see a few comercials and end about right.

Plus I rather watch a game when it convient for me an I can skip all commercials. Why sit for three hours when I can watch one in less than an hour and still enjoy more I other things too. The whole point of DVRs to me.
