Mike Klis from The Denver Post reporting NFL is pushing back the release of the Week 1 primetime and Thanksgiving games until tomorrow, citing a need to finalize things today.
Are you ****ting me NFL? You've had two months and you're still not done? Unbelievable. Always amazed me how it takes 3 months to make a damn schedule.
GRR, that SUCKS!
You should try and see if you can find the video from the NFLN where they show how they work out the schedule. It was really cool and informative. It's actually a lot more difficult than you (or I) think.
EDIT: Yep, you're right:
Week One, Thanksgiving game announcement gets bumped a day
Posted by Mike Florio on March 22, 2010 1:03 PM ET
It has been widely expected that the NFL would announce on Monday the schedule of prime time games in Week One and the full slate of Thanksgiving games.
As it turns out, the ketchup will be at the lip of the bottle for another day.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the announcement has been moved to Tuesday, tentatively.
Per Klis, NFL schedule guru Howard Katz said he needs more time before the games can be locked in.
It's currently known that the Saints will host the first game of the season, on the evening of September 9. There's a growing sense that the Vikings will be the opponent.
The Jets reportedly will host the first game of the Week One Monday night doubleheader. The Jets also are expected to host a game on Thanksgiving night, which means that the Patriots would play at Detroit.
I know its difficult, I saw the clip of what you're talking about, but damn, if you work on it for 1 month, it should be done. You start February 8th, and you're done by mid-March at latest.
By March 22nd this **** should be completed and given to us, EVERY SINGLE GAME, and yet here we are waiting for the announcement of 6 or 7 games? Unreal.
Yeah, I hear ya...I completely understand your frustration. I really don't understand WTF they can't just give us this piece of info today. It's 2 friggin' games and we only need to know the opponents. Surely these were already worked out.
