    Dear Channel 3:

    NOBODY CARES ABOUT DALLAS OR CLEVELAND IN CONNECTICUT.

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

    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"

    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

    It is always incredibly aggravating when CBS does this here in Connecticut.

    It seems a few times a year we will our forced to watch a game that has gone into overtime even though our game has already started. Looks like the later 4:25pm start time hasn't prevented this.

    And of course the whole fiasco of the week 2 Cardinals game not even being broadcasted in Connecticut, had to watch that one online.

    I kept hoping they would cut in and say "Sorry, because of licensing rules, we have to switch over to the Patriots game." No. They showed the whole dang thing to the end. I was so PISSED. Especially watching the ticker at the bottom when the Colts scored. I could have stopped that if I were watching, obviously. :mad:

    Not the only one - we are next town over from you in Monroe and have our house and our next door neighbors rooting for the Pats. We should write to CBS though, as they had both channels (2 and 3 on Cablevision) airing the Browns v Cowboys. Usually when we have the same game time with the Jets they use one channel for us and the other for the Green Beans.

    The Giants are usually on Fox but with them having a bye this week, there was no coverage, so CBS tried to grab the audience. Understandable but still no reason to dvote both channels - someone should Tweet the complaint.

    At least there's somewhat of a rationale in the Southern half of the state. I'm within spitting distance of the Massachusetts border and still get inundated with Jets and Giants crap.

    Not the next town over, same town I live in Monroe as well. Yeah I kept flipping between 1002 and 1003 hopeing at least one of them would have the pats game. I was literally screaming at the tv when the colts scored that first td and it scrolled across the bottom of the screen.

    As mentioned earlier the NY station also showed the Cowboys/Browns.

    Given that the 1PM game shown was the Jets, and they only switched to the Cowboys after the Jets game was over, I think they should've stuck to the schedule -- switch off the cowboys/browns as soon as the pats game started.

    If you cared about the Cowboys/Browns you would've found a way to watch the entire game -- or you wouldn't have had the tv on at the end.

    Whereas if the 1PM game shown in the local market was the Cowboys/Browns then I think they should've stayed with the game till the end.

    atleast you guys were able to see 3 quarters. I was confident that even though im in Nashville, they would show the game, because Indy is in the division.......nope. I was forced to watch Norv Turner, and his bunch of rejects. I knew the Peyton love in this state was high, but this is a new low. I hate CBS :mad:

    I honestly think this time whoever's job was to switch the feed from the national feed to the Patriots/Colts feed screwed up, which was probably on CBS. I believe only the team markets got the feed when the game started. I know Boston and Rhode Island got it. Because I had it on WFSB but switched my other TV I had on to WPRI on my Directv receiver and it was on.

    I think this was CBS trying to show "America's team" on a national scale because they rarely get them . They could have easily switched it to Houston/Jacksonville that was in overtime and was a lot more compelling.

    So I really don't think this one was on WFSB, I think it was on CBS forcing the Cowboys. And CBS probably thought WFSB was in that grey area and didn't make the switch to the Patriots/Colts game. The switch has been made countless times from a 1pm game that was running into a 4pm Patriots game. Honestly think had Dallas/Cleveland not gone to overtime the Patriots/Colts would have been shown on time and that's with the Houston/Jacksonville game going to overtime.

    Did anyone else notice how they didn't take a commercial break until the end of the 1st quarter? Clearly only a few markets were watching through the majority of that quarter. Or else there would have been a commercial every single chance they got.
