    NFL Schedule to be released on April 6

    Didn't see this posted anywhere. If it is, please feel free to publicly humiliate me.

    [size=18px]NFL.com and NFL Network to unveil regular-season schedule [/size]

    (April 4, 2006) -- For the third straight season, the National Football League's release of the regular-season playing schedule will be made into a two-hour television show on NFL Network's signature show, NFL Total Access. The show will air this Thursday, April 6, at 2 p.m. ET.

    It will also be posted simultaneously on NFL.com, broken down by date, by team and by broadcast network.

    The NFL Total Access Schedule Show Presented by GMC will be hosted by Rich Eisen, alongside guest analyst Steve Mariucci.

    NFL Total Access will announce the 2006 regular-season playing schedule on a week-by-week basis, highlighting the new changes taking place this season, including flexible scheduling, the addition of NBC and NFL Network as broadcasters, plus all the compelling matchups.

    In addition to highlighting the key games of the 2006 season, the special will also feature interviews with current players, including John Lynch of the Denver Broncos, coaches, including Herm Edwards of the Chiefs and Sean Payton of the Saints, plus broadcasters, including FOX's Troy Aikman, to gauge their reactions to the schedule as it comes out.

    The two-hour special will re-air the same day as its original air at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

    In addition to the NFL Total Access Schedule Show Presented by GMC, NFL Network features live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of Day 1 of the 2006 NFL Draft, as well as exclusive live coverage of NFL Europe games this April

    Are we going to have to play Green Bay at Lame-Boo after they come off a bye again? Granted, It wasn't a problem last year, but it still bothered me a bit.

    Here's an article on ESPN about the flex schedule:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2397614

    Flexible schedule primer
    • Begins Sunday, Nov. 12 in Week 10.
    • In effect Weeks 10-15 and Week 17. Plan not in effect Week 16 because of holiday weekend.
    • Only Sunday afternoon games are subject to being moved to Sunday night.
    • During flex weeks, majority of Sunday games will be listed at 1 p.m. ET, except for games played in Pacific or Mountain Time Zones, which will be listed at 4:05 or 4:15 p.m. ET.
    • Thursday, Saturday and Monday night games not affected.
    • NFL will give 12 days notice if a game is being moved to the 8:15 p.m. ET time slot and also may announce games moving to 4:15 p.m. ET.
    • CBS and Fox each can protect a total of five games in seven weeks of flexible scheduling, but not more than one game per week.

    Yeah, that flex schedule can get a little confusing, but the bottom line is if your team is playing a Sunday night game and it is not currently an exciting match up, it stands the chance of getting bumped down to an afternoon game. Likewise, if your team has an afternoon game and it is expected to be a great matchup, it can be bumped up to the prime time spot.

    Personally I like it, and it isn't to different than the way games could be rescheduled for TV in the past. We will get at least 12 days notice, so it should affect attendance at home games too much.
