Sunday, December 2, 2007 Streams Packers-Cowboys Game

It was one of the most anticipated football games of the year, and hardly anyone got to see it. The Packers-Cowboys game was aired on the NFL Network, a channel that only 1/4 of American households receive. Due to an impasse in negotiations with most major cable carrier, the NFL Network is not offered to many people, shutting out the majority of fans for the dozen or so games that are to be shown on the network in December. The game was to have live look-ins on, but the League decided to simulcast nearly the whole game, possibly succumbing to the pressure of the fans.

It is a shame that the greed of NFL owners and the major cable companies is preventing people from enjoying one of their favorite pastimes. At least some people were patient enough to sit through the web simulcast.
