    Steelers-Browns kickoff time changed.....

    Saturday, December 24, 2011
    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Steelers' season finale next Sunday against the Browns in Cleveland was changed to a 4:15 p.m. kickoff to accommodate CBS. The game originally was set for a 1 p.m. start.

    Hopefully CBS has the double header this coming week since FOX had it this weekend.

    Good news right? If the Bengals beat the Ravens they are in and the game means something to us. If not it's a week off for those that need the rest.

    My first inclination when I saw this was "Wow that is good. The NFL finally does something which could be beneficial to the Steelers. I figured the Bal-Cin game would be on at 1pm and the Steelers would know and plan accordingly how to treat the Browns game.

    I should have known better. The Baltimore-Cincinnati game is also on at 4pm.

    As far as the doubleheader week 17 schedule goes. I looked at next Sundays listing and in the FOX 4pm slot on Channel 12 the Fox Pittsburgh outlet a game between Seattle and Arizona was listed. I laughed since when the Steelers are on CBS in either the 1pm or 4pm time slot the other network shows a game in the other time slot.

    However, I did notice that both CBS and FOX had NFL games listed in the 1pm til 7 or 8pm time slots. A little checking I found this. Whether it is still in effect or not I do not know and really do not care to find out. If anyone has ever read or tried to read that crap about how the games are allotted --- it is very confusing. But anyway in the section "Doubleheader Allotments" from the Wikipedia site it ends with the following statement.

    "Since 2006, both networks have aired a doubleheader in week 17.[10][11]

    As long as it's on TV that's the main thing but I too was hoping the Ravens game would be on at 1 instead. The NFL doesn't want that though, they want both teams fighting with all their starters in the season finale to draw more people to their TV's.

    another reason the schedule needs to be set in stone at the beginning of the season...the reason the NFL gave to allow the flex scheduleing is to get the best game on sunday night...oh well they moved the dallas-giants game to that spot...seems to me both dallas and the giants have inferior records to baltimore and cincinnati...why isn't the baltimore cincinnati game on sunday night....The networks figure dallas and Ny are bigger markets and more eyeballs will be viewing, this is not the better game as we were told we would be getting...it's time for the NFL to take back control from the networks and think about the fans who may have booked rooms and airfare to travel to these games... these are the people the NFL should be catering to

    Dallas NY is a much better game than Ravens Bengals. It's for the division title, loser goes home. The Ravens are in no matter the outcome.

    All the Steelers need to do is beat the lowly Browns.
    Cleveland Browns suck!
