    Since I can not afford to get the DirecTV nfl package, I understand that Sirius radio carries NFL games

    Does anyone use this to listen to the games? If so, are the games prerecorded or are they all live? I cant really seem to find the answer on sirius.com

    thanks

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    I have both (Sirus and Direct TV). I ALWAYS WATCH EVERY GAME (live or DVR'ed). I try to watch them all live, but you know how it is. I ussually listen live on sirus if not in front of the TV. They carry the games LIVE, in both the Patriots local feed and Other Team's local feed.

    I'd rather be watching games live, but Sirus certainly works in a pinch.

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    SIRIUS Satellite Radio - SIRIUS NFL Radio

    The Sirius NFL Radio channel does not actually air games on Sunday afternoons. Instead, it airs The Sunday Drive, which recaps all games being played on Sunday afternoon, while breaking into radio broadcasts of any games where pertinent action is taking place. The games themselves are aired on the reserved play-by-play channels and other channels not being used.

    Call 877-NFL-KICK for questions.

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    I have been using Sirius for years simply because they carry all the NFL games live! What's more I can chose which teams broadcast I want to hear. Naturally I listen to mostly the Pats announcers call the game but it's sometimes fun to listen to the team the Patriots are putting beat-down on lament their teams woes! I highly recommend Sirius if you can't see the game on TV.

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    i would also add ,although not endorsed by this message board in any way, shape or form, that usually on Sundays about 12:30 you can check in here for a link to a live feed online to watch the game. You can also listen to the game on some station in Vermont since it is not broadcasted on WBCN.com.

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    I hope the NFL games are broadcast online. I am in Afghanistan and have sirius just for the NFL games. Sirius radio won't work over here, so online is the only way. I have DTV back home and haven't missed a game since 2000. I don't want to be forced to watch that stupid CBS game tracker (Actually, I guess it's not stupid - it's better than nothing!).

    If Sirius doesn't play the games online, then I will cancel and count on you guys to hook me up on gameday.

    Thanks!

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    Fred Taylor, Robert Kraft and BB are already on tap to be on the show. Gonna be plenty of others they say.

    These guys(kirwan and ryan) know their stuff and I'm really looking forwrd to hearing an unbiased opinion and analysis.

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius


    He started in the NFL in '72 so he's been around the game forever. He negotiated contracts and managed an NFL teams slary cap so I'm thinking he's pretty smart.

    just some quick things I wrote down

    -Burgess is on the radar for sure
    -Jarod Mayo taking over defense
    -Bruschi lost weight
    -Mayo gained weight
    -Bodden, Springs look to have a ton of juice left in their legs
    -team should be a great nickle IF they can rush the passer

    sorry for hijacking the thread but I'm so excited to hear these guys talk Patriots

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    no problem

    great interviews with Fred Taylor and Steven Neal so far

    they say Fred Taylor looks terrific. Looks like he's 25.

    Neal had a great joke about Brady. They were talking about being sore and the rigors of camp and then started talking about how much Brady loves camp and Neal says yeah that's because he's got the red shrit on.

    And that's all in the first hour.

    Adalius will be on later.

    BB and Kraft next hour.

    3 more hours!

    Re: OT: NFL on Sirius

    You have to buy the radio and pay for the service. It's like $12 a month.

    Hey check out the Sirius site and sign up to listen on line for free for 7 days. Pretty sure they have that offer all the time. It costs $3 to listen online but I'm pretty sure they offer 7 days for free.

    Check out the LISTEN ONLINE section.

    Right but I just figured if anyone wanted to hear these guys at camp then they could if they just sign up for the free trial.

    Kraft on now. He said they are interested in Vick.


    Just kidding.

    Do not even joke about the Pats being interested in Vic. He wasnt any good before he went to jail.

    Oh I forgot to post this. They said Bruschi looks like he lost 10 - 15 lbs.

    BB on now. This should be good for a couple laughs.
