    Someone please explain this to me, how the hell can they make you pay to see the thanksgiving game, and how come they can take your team locally and put it on cable where potentially you can't watch it?

    They can do whatever they want, you weren't born with the right to see every game. The Thanksgiving game they're putting on NFL Network is at night, there's no reason to believe it will be in place of the two earlier games.

    My beef with the new schedule lies within games on Thursdays and Saturdays, it will give some teams a advantage when it comes to preparing for for the next team they play.

    Do we really need 4 nights of NFL games, it isn' the NBA

    The more nights the better as far as I'm concerned.

    The NFL is a great business, but watering down the schedule with Thursday and Saturday games is bunk. Add in the new flex-schedule and it would appear the league is too concerned with its "casual" watchers, all the while overlooking it's core.

    This piece of the NFL's fan core would be happy with a game every night if it could be worked out :)
