    If you live in So Cal you could have voted on which two games Fox 11 was going to show on Opening Sunday. The games that were picked, Vikes vs Bucs @10am and Cowboys vs Chargers @ 1pm
    They should do that everywhere. Now that I've got the Ticket it doesn't matter, but I suffered through the pain for some 10 years or so.
    I have had a few games that were interupted by Rain Fade.

    If you thought Road-Rage was bad, you have never seen RainFade-Rage!
    For those that do not have D-TV, when rain fade happens, you get a broken picture that pauses and starts then it eventually turns to a black screen that says " searching for satellite signal."

    Here in Texas clouds are even bigger, no getting a signal through a huge thunder cloud.

    It doesn't happen that often, maybe 6 to 10 times a year when watching TV.

    With that said, I wouldn't be able to watch more than a few National games a year if I didn't have it, so it is all good.

    I think the fudgepackers get so much coverage because they are a storied franchise. They have a huge following and that means good tv ratings for that time slot. If they really stunk like the forty niners, then you probably wouldn't see so much of them. Some people have picked them to win the north so they are still a good football team and their fans will tune in. We'll see how many games they get next eyar if they have a losing record.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    Once Favre is gone the following won't be as big, then we won't have to worry so much! Man, you guys complaining about having to watch them 7 times this year, try living in sconny I have to watch them 16 times a year!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Re: National TV schedule for Vikes?

    I just connected my brand new DVD Recorder...man its sweet!

    So, I am putting every game on DVD!

    I am only using the DVD R for Vikes games. So, you gotta figure I spent the $200 or so for the Sunday Ticket, $150 for the DVD R, and $30 for the discs! The Vikings mean so much to me!

    The only drawback is that when you have a football game you have to figure that it will be between 3-4 hours. So, I have to set the DVD R from 1 hour (highest quality) to 8 hour (lowest). So, I am only getting VCR quality here. But, it is better than a VHS tape anyday. Plus, when I get my new PC I can download the game and put clips on the web!

    Re: National TV schedule for Vikes?

    Thanks for all of the updates. Well, shoot. It looks like the only games I get to see 'live' are the two nationally televised games.

    I've got some strange on-demand thing through Comcast (cable) that will allow me to see the game the next day - for a fee. Hmmm...

    Gotta find sports bars that will show the games - a buddy of mine owns a pub in Portland so when I am there I'm hooked up. Gotta work on Sacramento now...

    Skol my brothers!

    On the packers national coverage thing: that is a double-edged sword. I.e.; they're going to suck this year, so they're going to suck *nationally* as a result

    The Vikings home-opener is being shown here on FOX.

    I actually can't believe that the so-cal fans voted for it.

    Re: National TV schedule for Vikes?

    I have Dish with a free PVR system. It's really sweet. Everytings loaded on to the hard drive up to 60 hrs. worth in HDFTV! Record, rewind, Slo-Mo it's all there. I use it every time the Vikes are on the dish! If the Pack plays at a different time than the Vikes there usually on. Plus I can add or subtract channels from other states that might be showing them for a measley $1.50 a month.

    You'll love it! Enjoy!
