I prefer not to early in the season, let alone the first game of the season....our offense usually takes a time to gel, compared to other teams.....I can picture this place going crazy if our offense struggles in the first game against the Packers, and they some how scoring a couple of TDs.
besides, I think it'd be more interesting if the game happened in the middle of the season.
Never said they had to do anything to convenience my life. Just said that's what I prefer. We didn't have too much of an advantage in prime time vs the Ravens did we?
are you kidding me?! you're gonna use THAT game as an example to disprove primetime games are more an advantage for west coast teams? that was one of the worst, most ill-scheduled, disadvantaged-to-a west-coast team games in the history of the NFL in that not only was it coming off a short week (sunday to thursday), but the Niners also had to fly all the way across country.
No, I'm talking about a NORMAL primetime game coming after the NORMAL 6-7 day prep time a team gets....west coast teams have the natural 2-3 hour stamina advantage since their bodies will have the 5:30/6pm biological clock while east coast/central timezone teams go off of starting their games at 8:30/9pm (no matter where the game is held, east, midwest, west coast).
PS, you pretty much self-defeated your point by saying "Never said they had to do anything to convenience my life. Just said that's what I prefer."
Oh ok I see what you mean. I pay for NFL Sunday ticket so I am spoiled I guess with not being affected by blackouts. Which I doubt any of the games will be blacked out anyway next season hard to imagine them not selling out every home game.
The blackouts are only a 90 mile radius or so. He is talking about the network not picking thegame up. He is forced to watch cowboys vs bills, eagles vs seahawks, cardinals vs rams, redskins vs bucs, giants vs vikings. The s**t games that involve nfc east teams because the network does not want to air the niners. And the cardinals may be deemed his area since he is socal.
