NFL/NBC might move up opener to clear way for McCain
Kudos to loyal reader Matt for staying on top of the issue he first made WatchDog aware of many weeks ago regarding a time conflict between the NFL opener - likely featuring Our Giants - and John McCain's acceptance speech at the Republican Convention.
Just for the record . . . when I called some of Matt's suggested solutions "ludicrous" I was not referring to the idea of playing the game earlier in the evening than usual.
I was referring to the notions of starting the entire season a week later and/or putting the game on the NFL Network and/or not playing the Thursday night game at all this year.
Anyway . . . good job by Matt for raising this issue in the first place!
