NFL/NBC might move up opener to clear way for McCain

(Credit: Watchdog)

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!
