Newt,

Here is a direct link to the post on edgecutter.
That first post will give you the attachments for the first 5 timezones. Post #2 has attachments for Hawaii, Alaska, Los Angeles and San Deigo.

Please let me know if you still have any problems. You can create a userid at that site, but that is not necessary. If there are problems, I need to get those corrected immediately!!

Thanks !

Well Newt, I tried this exercise from my wife's computer. And you are right: I ran into the same problem as you. Creating a userid IS necessary.

The software platform tells us that you do not need to create a userid at the site to be able view the contents of open Forums, like the Tech Resources and Programming Forums. And well, that is correct. What they neglected to mention is that if you wish to download anything - a PDF, an Excel - then you DO need to have a userid.

I'm sure that with adequate coercion ( large amounts of money that we do not have) we could get the software changed. It won't happen.

So I apologize for the inconvenience - just create a userid for yourself. Then please do let me know if that solves your problems. There are probably many others who will benefit from your response!

And thanks - once again.

Gary I was wondering what x-flex means??
Good question! The 'x-flex' is NFL shorthand for "cross-flex". And "cross-flex" means that the NFL has re-assigned that game from one network to another network.

Here's the big picture. The basic NFL contracts define any game where the visiting team is in the NFC should be broadcast by FOX. Any game where the visiting team is in the AFC should be broadcast by CBS. You will sometimes read, "The NFC rights were purchased by FOX, the AFC rights were purchased by CBS."

But then in the last few years, the NFL included a caveat in the contracts that allows the NFL to arbitrarily re-assign a CBS game to FOX, or re-assign a FOX game to CBS. These re-assignments are called 'cross-flexes'. The original schedule that is released always has some of the x-flex games already built in. But in most cases, the x-flex changes are made from week to week as the season progresses. In the Press Release snippets I post, notice the text (for example):
The New Orleans at New York Jets game remains at 1:00 PM ET but will shift to CBS

There is much conjecture that forthcoming contracts will change so that the NFL will effectively sell the rights to each game to the highest bidder and multiple networks will be in the mix. In this coming year, Amazon will have Thursday Night Football and ESPN is broadening its involvement, so in some ways we are on that path already!

Are you prepared for Al Michaels broadcasting for Amazon - and on Thursday nights ?? Well, get ready…….

Sorry for the long winded reply - you now know more than you care to know. :)
