    KRLD - AP News Article

    As if the Texas legislature doesn't have better things to do than to help Jerry and the NFL make more money...

    This should never be brought to the lawmakers attention. They just need to get this settled. I really like the nfl but I dont think they should be forcing th cable companies to settle. They just need to get this settled

    Re: Jones/Goodell take their NFL Network woes to TX legislature

    What a bunch of BS. Can't wait for the Big 10 network to follow suit.

    "This is about fans and consumers having access to the programming they want,'' Goodell said at a meeting of the House Regulated Industries Committee.

    You could always put the game back on NBC, CBS or FOX, Roger....

    Re: Jones/Goodell take their NFL Network woes to TX legislature

    I heard a Dish network commercial this morning featuring Jerry Jones, telling listeners that Time Warner Cable doesn't carry the NFL Network so if all the Cowboys fans wanted to watch the game they needed to hurry up and get Dish network. It seemed pretty low-brow to me. I don't really have much respect that guy.

    Re: Jones/Goodell take their NFL Network woes to TX legislature

    It's funny that the NFL won't let it go to an independent arbitrator like the cable companies want. Kind of tells you that they know they are being absurd. IF and thats a big IF they NFL network does go to cable they need to do the right thing and give all the proceeds to the NFL retired players pension...

    ``This is about fans and consumers having access to the programming they want,'' Goodell said at a meeting of the House Regulated Industries Committee.
    --------------
    If getting the games to the fans is the #1 priority then put the crap on the sports tier where it belongs. This type of crap doesn't belong on any basic package. Matter of fact if you look at Direct TV's First basic package, it hardly has any channels on it at all. This is coming from a person who is going to switch to Direct once I get a real TV.

    If by "love" you mean "desiring to punch in the nose", then I'd agree...

    With all your Cowboy/Jerry love, you should move to Arlington. We could use some extra help paying for the staduim...

    My post was sarcastic.

    I'm not a big fan of Jerry for many reasons. I will say I've warmed up to the guy a bit in the last few years, but he's still not atop my favorite people list.

    Ok, wait, this is a joke right? If customers want the NFL network, they can easily get it by switching to dish/DTV. It is not the business of the government to tell us what we can or can't watch on tv.

    Not everyone can just switch to dish/dtv. It's not an option for some people..

    Yes, but you still love the Cowboys, and as such, I think you should share the "privilege" of paying for their new home...

    Gotta love those obsessed with hating the 'Boys.

    Isn't this about the NFL Network and not the new stadium?

    Trust me, I'll donate a few bucks when we get down that way to watch a game.

    Can I hitch a ride? I've never been to a Cowboys game. Or an NFL game, for that matter.
