    My heart goes out to the NFL and Peacock, it saddens me that things didn't go as well as anticipated.

    I listened on the radio. Then fell asleep after first quarter. Did not go into withdrawal from lack of purchasing the broadcast of the game.

    So did TNF at first. Then everyone got on board. The broadcast cast was just fine unlike the ESPN game that the camera crew didn’t have rags to wipe the cameras.

    Yep. Same backlash when the first cable-only playoff game was streamed. “How can they move it to cable? A lot of people don’t have cable!”

    I watched the game and didn’t experience any of the problems from that article. Not saying it didn’t or couldn’t happen - it’s happened many other times during high-streaming events like Game of Thrones - but I question how widespread those issues were.

    I listened to it on the Radio. As much as I hate this trend, had my Tommy been playing I am sure i would have bought it.

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

    Peacock deserves to have its tail feathers pulled so that it will look like you average, egg laying turkey. It’s okay to restrict access to the Thursday night games if they must. Most of them didn’t matter anyway. Restricting access to playoff games sucks.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    no it wasnt ok , thin end of the wedge and all.
    i have peacock , i thought the game was ok , but the idea that playoff games are not on free tv is ridiculous
    i find the ESPN games more annoying because ESPN is political i dislike helping them earn any money

    In any case we are not stupid we have seen this garbage before , if they have their way the games will be spread across 6 different extra cost networks.
    I abandoned nascar over that and ill ditch the NFL too
