  1. Trying to figure out how the hell the Cubs wasn’t on FOX last night? The main channel shows a repeat while the cable network shows the game. That’s messed up there. GO LIONS! SonoftheBronx will finally not be depressed this week as his Giants finally won today.

    • Yes, very pleased. What a day for Odell.

      It’s all about the Benjamins for Fox. Their priority is boosting FS1’s cable footprint. So much so that Fox gave all that money to MLB and the sport obliged them to air the bulk of their playoffs on the young sports cable network. MLB sacrificed the maximum potential of viewers that the Cubs could generate for the sake of getting more Fox diñero up front at the start of the current TV contract.

      • I was relieved for Odell’s sake that his penalty didn’t cost his team the game as Flacco was driving down the field. Hopefully the Lions will still be in the race or your team by the time we face you guys in week 15. Going to be a good war week with you that week.

          • That’s true still too many weeks left until Thanksgiving, I know for sure the Washington game will determine if were a playoff chasing team or not. Our season should be over if Washington wins because we got Houston and Minnesota on the road back-to-back before our bye week we could easily drop to 3-6. Your Giants have a tough schedule as well so huge win against the Ravens this past week.
