Several people have asked me in the last two days if Time Warner was running the Cowboys/Packers game on channel 154 tonight.
Time Warner has just informed me that this is absolutely not true. The confusion seems to have started when a local radio personality mentioned he "heard" it would be on TW Channel 154. This was incorrect.
Also, DISH had an ad in the local paper today stating the game is on channel 154 on the Dish Network. I can only assume people got confused by that.
In any case, no game on TW channel 154 tonight.
And honestly, I hope TW sticks to their guns on this one. I don’t like paying for programming I never watch (gardening, cooking, religious, shopping, etc) and I do NOT want others paying for me to watch the NFL if they don’t have an interest in the NFL.
The NFLN should just wither away and die. It is a poorly conceived idea that has been executed even worse. It is the worst sports public relations disaster since the baseball strike. And I have not watched a single Major League Baseball game since.
And a personal note to Mr. Jerry Jones – It took me about a decade to forgive you for the way you treated Tom Landry. Don’t make a similar mistake now. Do NOT alienate the very fans that are purchasing your new $1 BILLION dollar stadium for you.
