    Are these 30 minute game shortcuts not available for the prime time games? I couldn't find one for the Ravens in the guide.

    2 wishes for these awesome shortcut games...

    1 - Have them run more than just part time Mon and Tues, Have them go later in the week.

    2 - D* needs to pay attention to when these are put on. Sometimes for a Team A versus Team B match up, Ive seen the Team A shortcut then less than 1 hour later on the same channel the Team B shortcut - which is the exact same one as Team A.

    They are really intended for you to record as they run through the night. That's why the schedule doesn't matter.

    No, Short Cuts will only shows the offensive plays, so Team A will be different than Team B

    My biggest problem is the white flash between plays. I think they can find a much better way to transition between plays.

    Heck, we all know the next play is coming; do we need to be blinded by the light? :)

    Cheers,

    Not true. Shortcuts show all plays of the game.

    The only change I'd make is adding a short cuts for To Go.

    Being a Giants fan I'm pleased that they won. However the call made on Cruz "giving himself up" is very controversial.

    I don't see that play as controversial. He clearly didn't fumble the ball. The play I always see as controversial is when a runner is tackled, but lands on and rolls over the tackler, only touches hand to ground and gets up and keeps running. To me that player is tackled and the play dead there. They always let it keep going.

    I'm frustrated that most of the replays don't go back to when Cruz was hit. My guess is he felt he had been downed as a result of the hit and so set the ball down and went to go huddle up. I think the call was correct and the coverage bad. :)

    If he runner is not stopped, but continues some form of progress without touching the ground (other than with hands or feet), he is not down. If he is stopped, then he should be considered down.

    Tackling seems to have completely left the game. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I have to agree with Tom that tackling has left the game. Too many rules on when and where a player can make a tackle.

    No, the rules came about because players forgot how to tackle and have been just hitting. Launching your head at a receiver, running back or quarterback is not tackling. Trying to dislodge the ball by sheer impact is not tackling. Tackling involves arms and wrapping up. It does not involve the head or even the shoulder. Nor does it really even involve the hands. Football players have confused defense with demolition derby. That is why we have a ton of safety rules now.

    Tom, I agree 100% with you about the white flashes...very annoying and almost makes you jump involuntarily every 7 or 8 seconds. They need to have a much smoother transition.
