    CBS, NBC, and NFLN to simulcast the Patriots-Giants game on Saturday!

    NBC, CBS TO SIMULCAST PATRIOTS-GIANTS by Michael David Smith

    NBC and CBS will both broadcast Saturday's Patriots-Giants game, the NFL announced today.

    "We have taken this extraordinary step because it is in the best interest of our fans," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the league's statement. "What we have seen for the past year is a very strong consumer demand for NFL Network. We appreciate CBS and NBC delivering the NFL Network telecast on Saturday night to the broad audience that deserves to see this potentially historic game. Our commitment to the NFL Network is stronger than ever."

    CBS and NBC will both carry the NFL Network feed of the broadcast, with Bryant Gumbel handling play-by-play and Cris Collinsworth handling commentary. Local stations in Boston (Channel 5), Manchester, New Hampshire (Channel 9) and New York (Channel 9) will also show the game.

    This will be the first simulcast of an NFL game since Super Bowl I, which both CBS and NBC televised.

    Another good decision for the NFL. The League takes it in the shorts on one game, but maintains and adds to their PR, good karma, and their
    likeitude.



    Go Vikings!

    This is not good news for the NFL network. Once everyone hears [s]Barney Gumble[/s] Bryant Gumbel calling a game, they won't be able to get any new subscribers.

    Cool with me. Maybe they will get moving on signing his replacement, too.

    And the NFL blinks in the face of Congressional pressure.

    Outstanding.

    Naming someone as an idiot while you misspell their name kinda makes you look like the fool, methinks.

    In any case, Bryant Gumble is NOT an idiot.
    His "Real Sports" show on HBO is, perhaps, the finest regular sports show on television.
    Consistently insightful, hard-hitting and fascinating, it's must-see in my house.

    I think he's out of his element in doing play-by-play, but, as I haven't seen any NFLN broadcasts, I will have to reserve judgement on that until after tonight's broadcast....assuming I watch it.
    I'm thinking about going to see the Wild play Edmonton at the X tonight.
