I don't know. I like the relaxing, get up on the weekend, get the coffee pot going, have a big breakfast then flop into the comfy tv chair with computer on the side. I just like the weekend part of it better than two week night times and that fact that I'm two time zones to the west just make it seem like a bit of a rush to me. Maybe I'll take one or both of those days off.
It's the casual fan that won't have the patience to tune in for three consecutive days.
The Casual fan wouldn't tune in for Day 2 in the previous set-up either. Day 2 was only for the diehards to begin with.
I would think this would force the "Casual Fan" to tune in 2 days instead of one. I also think it's better for the league in that the breaks create more opportunity to start working out trade scenarios.
Really though, the league wants it primetime so that more people can/will watch it.
