    .....hurt the Pat's pre-season plans a bit?

    I don't know if that extra game is now totally cancelled, but if so it made me think.

    Maybe the incentive of the extra game was going to allow them to overload the pre-season roster a bit, take on a few extra WRs, Lbs and CBs to evaluate.

    Just a thought. I'm probably wrong but that wouldn't be a first.

    Hurt ? Are you kidding ? 5 preseason games, 300 pound men having to fly to China and back ? Belichick probably opened up the champagne last night. It doesn't hut in any way.

    While I suspect Peter King is correct, the cancellation has not been officially announced by the league.

    Is BB jumping for joy that the game is cancelled? It's the biggest no brainer in the history of the earth!

    Sorry, I shake my head every time I hear that mortgage company commercial on the radio.

    Re: Did the China Bowl Cancellation...

    This China cancellation has delayed the release of the Pre-season schedule which was released last year in March. My only anticipation is hoping they give us the teams with big national followings. Here's to the Giants, Bears, Eagles, ect ...coming to town and not the Jags, Texans ect.. so I have no trouble getting rid of my $500 worth of "practice games" :D

    Re: Did the China Bowl Cancellation...

    It seems that the Pats preseason usually emphasizes NFC teams along the Eastern Seaboard where not a lot of travel is involved -- Philly, Giants, 'Skins, Falcons, Panthers, etc. Since we play the NFCE in the regular season this year I wonder if that will change. Interesting that we never play the other AFCE teams in the preseason.

    Re: Did the China Bowl Cancellation...

    The only part of this cancellation that I regret is having a chance of more game film of (and game time for) Matt Cassell. Assuming he continues to improve... the more other teams see him, the more he's worth next year.

    Besides that, it is a blessing that the travel and wear & tear of an extra game halfway around the world is now not an issue.

    Isn't this the third straight year we will be finishing the preseason against the Giants?

    Re: Preseason schedule

    Yes it is, and I wouldn't put a single starter on the field against that team, IMO. For once, just once it would be nice to start the season with a fairly healthy squad.

    Re: Preseason schedule

    Giants have a big following nationally so that game should be an easy ticket to sell, the Titans not so easy:(

    Re: Preseason schedule

    It may be better for the team, but those of us who are die hard fans on the west coast are very upset. I'm from the state of Washington and I was making big plans to see the Pats against Seahawks on August 2. I don't care for the China game that much, but wanted to see my favorite team. Now I gotta wait till next year when they play in Seattle in regular season. After that, they won't come to Seattle for another eight years. Sucks!

    Re: Preseason schedule


    With Vince Young entering his first full season, Givens back (I presume) and the way they played us to end the season (and Rodney's), I think that ticket will be an easy sell. Plus it's the only home pre season game Brady and the starters including his shiny new WR corps will play for more than a couple of series.

    Re: Preseason schedule

    You would think that would be the case but unfortuately @ $125 a ticket thats not usually enough to get somebody to buy the tickets at full price. My experience is that people only pay that kind of money to see "their team" (that they don't live near or can't get tickets for) or for real games. Plenty of die hard Giants fans around here who will pay the $250 per pair not many Titans fans. I'm sure I'll find somebody who wants to see Vince Young ,only they will only want to pay 1/2 price:(

    Re: Preseason schedule

    Yay the G-men Pats game might be on again here on channel 13.:) At least we get to see the "dress rehersal" 3rd game on TV. I wonder if the Panthers will be superbowl picks again?
