    Fox please. I don't care for CBS' broadcast, although they both don't compare favorably to NBC's SNF.

    They need to just abolish Thursday games except for Thanksgiving. I would be open to a couple of games on Saturdays throughout the season over Thursday ones. While were at it, cancel MNF, it isn't the same anymore. Lets just go with Sat and Sun/Sun night :cool:

    NFL won't be satisfied until there is something going on every night of the week.

    Just as long as they fire the NFL Network announcers.

    I used to like those December Sat night games too. The Thursday night games are brutal and the league treats MNF like a rented mule either the schedule they give them.

    I may be the only one who would look at it this way, but I'll take CBS for the 1080i broadcast. FOX and ESPN look like crap.

    In another 2 or 3 years I expect another announcement of a game package being auctioned off to put even more games on TV.

    I have a better idea. Put all the Dallas games on Thursday night. It purely true entertainment.

    hopefully Fox wins the bidding, they're much better than CBS in their coverage

    Personally I prefer CBS to Fox when it comes to NFL games but that's just me. Also it would be interesting to see what CBS or NBC would do with their Thursday Night Comedy lineups if they were to win the bidding.

    If the NFL wants to boost ratings it needs to start by giving Monday Night Football flex scheduling as well.

    i don't get nfln so i like the idea. but i wonder what this says about the nfln. they have very good viewership but can't make the real money from advertising because it's not seen everywehere. their ratings a good for the number of homes who have it but still not there with networks. and the nfl makes more off games sold to networks. kinda interesting that what is likley the best revenue source for the nfln is being taken away
