    Dear Channel 3:

    NOBODY CARES ABOUT DALLAS OR CLEVELAND IN CONNECTICUT.

    We don't care. We don't care.

    Did I mention we don't care?

    GET TO OUR GAME.

    Even thought CT is, nobody in charge of the TV stations here seems to think we are.

    Amen to that, I was screaming at my TV so loud my four year old was like "Daddy why are you so angry at the TV?" Not a rats ass was given about f*%$ing dallas or clevland. I blame the TV station for the disasterous 1st quarter defense. Once I started watching the Pats game instead of the Dallas game the Pats took total control. Just think what could have been if I had been watching from the beginning

    Pure torture. Missed the whole first quarter. The Directv NFL ticket kept saying that the game was blacked out because it was on a local channel (3), except that channel 3 was carrying the Browns game.

    Blacked out online, and IPAD as well because of the "local blackout"

    OMG, I cant believe theres a thread about this. My wife kept telling me settle down too! I was livid. They went to the dallas game to fill in the end of the Jest game and never went back to the scheduled game:mad:. I was scrambling to find a decent stream

    Sounds like that station was more concerned about appealing to Giants fans than Patriots fans. Sigh... oh, Connecticut.

    CT is NYG country. And Giants fans would want to know about the Cowboys success or failure.

    For those of you who are Pats fans and live it CT, God bless you for living in enemy territory. I couldn't/wouldn't do it.

    Technically CT is a part of New England, but today's coverage proves that in practice it's really not.

    Yeah, at our local supermarkets (on the MA border), the covers to the football previews would invariably be either the Jets or Giants. Disgusting.

    We're a 50/40/10 split here of Pats/Giants/everyone else. I'd say it's about 50/50 Red Sox/Yankees. I live in central CT too.

    I'd say all of CT is New England except Fairfield and New Haven counties. Unfortunately, that's a pretty big part of the population. :rolleyes:

    I live in Fairfield county and am the only Pats fan in the area it seems. Everywhere I have worked is 45 % jet fans, 45% giants fans, and 10% other. I was sure they would switch to the Pats game as it was the regularly scheduled game that was supposed to be on. I was SO pissed that I had to watch the whole OT. Southern CT is not part of New England as it is only about an hour out on NYC so the vast majority root for NY teams. That said it can be fun walking around in a Pats jersey making jet fans green with envy. On the flip side after Super Bowl 42 it was brutal but necessary to wear my 83 around town. More then a few times I would get people chanting 18 and 1 at me
