    OK I know about ratings man, that's not the point I was getting at and the point of flex scheduling.

    Ratings don't apply when it comes to the definition of flex scheduling. The reason they did flex scheduling to show the best matchup or a competitive game late in the season. This matchup isn't defining the flex scheduling model.

    You don't really believe flex scheduling is for the fans, do you? It's available for better ratings, which brings in more advertising revenue. It is certainly possible the best match-up could also bring the best ratings, but unless you have a marquee game, the Cowboys are always money in the bank when it comes to ratings.

    So why should fans outside of Philly and Dallas care about this matchup on Sunday night?

    The things people on this board whine and complain about are absolutely mind boggling.

    NBC thinks it is boring, too. And so do their sponsors.

    Look around this board. There are members from many states, cities and countries. The Eagles arent too far behind the Cowboys when it comes drawing ratings. People have always wanted to watch the Cowboys due to love or hate for the team. Ever notice that the Cowboys typically are talked about more than any other team on ESPN no matter what the record is?

    I always assumed it was because Eagles fans run the network

    You think DirecTV is only available from space? Cable companies offer it also.

    You just cannot afford it, right?

    Doesn't matter. Networks do not give up Dallas Cowboys games because the Cowboys are a big draw.

    Can't remember who it was, maybe John Madden, who said a few years ago that Monday Night Football needed to schedule more Cowboys games because ratings follow the Cowboys.

    It's been proven true years ago because all of the people who run the network are from the philly area

    :eek:

    If you believe that the purpose of flex scheduling is to allow a lower rated game to replace a higher rated game, then no, you do not understand ratings. Or NBC. Or their business.
