    Today's Fox Coverage Map

    the506.com - 2011 week 6

    Why would the San Fransisco vs Detroit game jut out to Central Iowa like that?

    I want to watch my Packers!

    Because it's the best game at that time slot. I wish Chicago had that game.

    I think the better question is why KC's CBS station chose Pittsburgh-Jacksonville over Giants-Bills.

    49ers-lions may be the more competitive game, but COME ON. Two midwest teams and the super bowl champs. Des moines should be watching the packers-rams.

    Re: Today's Fox Coverage Map

    because the rams suck and the packers will easily win. Lions 49ers will actually be a good game.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    I never knew that. Interesting.

    It just seems strange to not put two midwest teams on, geographically it makes sense to me that the Packers vs Rams would be on.

    Re: Today's Fox Coverage Map

    they didnt pick it because the Rams are winless and traveling to Green Bay... It will be a blowout and as a Packers fan I want to watch all Packers games. Although 1 team with 1 loss and the other undefeated intrigues me as well... Ill let it slide just this one time.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Re: Today's Fox Coverage Map

    Honestly, I'd rather watch a good game rather than the Packers being up 30 on the Rams at the half...

    More intriguing match up be damned if no one is interested in watching and hurts the ratings.

    That fan vote is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. The sample size of people voting in the fan vote for what game KDSM should broadcast is so miniscule compared to the actual size of the Des Moines market.

    Every time I have voted for the game I want to watch and the results have come up after having voted, the percentage points shift anywhere from 0.3% to a full 1%. That shows just how few votes this ridiculous fan votes get.
