First, mods, if this should be in ATN or the Tailgate, I'm sorry and please relocate as needed.

Attention Triangle area Skins fans! Though we are technically a secondary market to DC (subject to blackout restrictions), we usually get the Skins broadcast as long as it does not conflict with the Panthers. Unfortunately, Fox 50 seems to be kowtowing to all of the yankees that have moved down to Apex and Cary, as they're slated to show the NY-SF game. I've already started bombarding Fox 50 with calls and emails, but the more the merrier...

The number to Fox 50 is 919-595-5050.
You can also contact them via their website: http://www.fox50.com/about/contact

We have successfully gotten them to change in the past. We can do it again. HAIL!

I just sent an email to Fox Charlotte asking who keeps deciding to air everything EXCEPT Redskins games in this market!! Last weekend instead of the Skins game, we got soccer. Yes, soccer before NFL. WTF? A few years ago the Skins games would always be aired here unless directly conflicting with Panthers games. Now, there's no Skins games broadcast unless it's a night game. What are they smoking? Dont they realize that their ad revenue is being killed by showing friggin SOCCER instead of a Redskins game???

Last week it was a broadcast rights issue since CBS had the doubleheader. This time, it's a marketing choice. I have alternatives but then I can't cook.

Summerfield is a little closer than the triangle...I don't know if that would matter.

How much is one of these antennas and how do you run it to the TV?

Yep. I still won't watch a Panthers' game unless they're playing the Skins. Why they ever play other games on Fox and CBS when the Skins are playing -- what was it last week? Giants Brownies. I know CBS had the double-header and Fox the single, so we were out of luck, but...

This always brings me back to the question, "Why didn't they put the AFC team in Charlotte?" We coulda kept both. (I realize that sorta answers my own question, but come on...) Nobody plays or has played the Jags in the Carolinas, which puts CBS at a serious disadvantage in these markets.

It's weird, here on the Outer Banks, they're not showing Panthers games at all this season(the used to, as long as THEY didn't conflict with Skins), but Skins are always still on no matter what. Kind of the opposite of OP actually.

Fox 18 in Charlotte has made me hate the panthers as much as the other NFC east teams. I wish I could get locals from Va or Tenn. as I am close to the state lines of each. People laugh when I tell them how much I hate the panthers while living in NC. Growing up in NC and watching Skins games all the time I really wish the panthers were an AFC team. HTTR!

49 bucks for an indoor setup. Easy hookup and the antenna is flat and bout the size of a notebook. You are right about reception though but its worth a try.

Thanks a lot! Like I said in the OP, this happened once before and they changed it. To the best of my knowledge, eastern NC (east of 95) is still considered a primary market. Central NC is now a secondary market thanks to the Panthers. Thus, in instances where coverages didn't conflict, 99% of games were shown.

I may try that long range antenna idea, but I don't pay for cable/satellite since the Skins are really the only TV I have to watch.

It doesn't matter what we think about the Panthers. The fact is they are the home team now for the Carolinas as far as television rights go. It's absurd to complain that the Panthers get televised over the Redskins throughout most of the state of NC and SC. They don't air the Panthers game, they will never increase the fan base which could possibly lead to even less season ticket holders and force the Panthers into a situation like Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, Miami, Buffalo where they are thinking about relocation.

See Bobcats, Charlotte - they did it wrong the first year by only allowing something like 5-6 games to be televised on stations that everyone could have access to on cable/satellite and tried to force that C-Set ****ing channel down your throats to watch 90% of their games, which was only available through Time Warner Cable who also had ties to the arena. Horrible marketing = pissed off fans/no interest = less revenue = problems for keeping a team around.

I'm not a Panthers fan, but I like the home team to succeed for the most part (yes some fans are unbearable if they are winning) because I like the opportunity to drive 20 mins to see professional football live. That is an experience I would like to keep around.

That's not what's being argued. Read through the thread again. If there's no Panthers game, the Skins should take precedence in NC/SC over the national game b/c the Carolinas remain a secondary Skins market (by virtue of originally being a Skins primary market). In the OP, they're not showing the Panthers; they're showing Giants-49ers. :puke:

Make sense? If the Panthers are on at 1, every 4pm Skins games should be on Fox's doubleheader and vice versa. Same if Panthers are on Fox and Skins CBS and vice versa.

Agree totally on Bobcats. Why they don't put a crappy team on OTA to build a fan base, I don't know.

I dont think they care about secondary markets, they care about the better game which would be the Giants/49ers, we have done nothing in 20 years to deserve being shown over last years rematch of the NFC Championship game, we just haven't. Typically, we are shown in those cases, but the network is going to show any rematch like this over a Skins team that is 2-3 playing the lucky Vikings.

I agree with y'all, it sucks, but its reality. Also, I have NFL Ticket, so honestly, its better for me for them not to show it cause Im paying for the games and if it is shown on local TV, Im paying for a game I get for free. :)

And im with you on the Bobcats, horrible marketing/planning on a new team. Especially for a city/area that had just been burned by the Hornets owner over a new arena. Then the city screws the taxpayers that voted against a new arena and builds a new areana and the owner tries to force people to come to the games by implementing that idiotic channel or forcing them to pay for that channel. Not the way to energize and reacquire an already pissed off fan base. Then Jordan comes in and makes horrible choices and spends no money. Finally, came to his senses and hired a good GM that can turn things around.

A couple of weeks ago they were going to show the Packers and Saints game, but they changed it to the Skins game a day or two before game day.

I can't stand the Panthers. I wish Richardson would sell the team or move them to L.A. The only people in the Carolinas who are fans of the Panthers live mostly in Charlotte. Any fans outside of Charlotte aren't really devoted fans. Most of them were Redskin fans growing up.

I agree with you. The same thing happens in PA with WYOU 22. If the Steelers are showing at 1:00pm on CBS and the Jets are showing at 4:00 on CBS. WYOU will air the Jets game even if the game of the century is showing at the same time and WYOU is not even a secondary market for the Jets.

This.

I live about 10 miles north of Raleigh, and I can count the number of Panther fans that I personally know on one hand. Most folks here that are 30 or older are Redskin fans.

I'm in eastern NC (Wilson) and I-95 runs right through here. I've been able to watch 2 games on cable so far this season, other than that I have to watch online. Wilson is right in between Raleigh and Greenville, so I'm not really sure what "market" we fall into here. It's really odd how places like the Triangle, Greensboro, etc don't get the games on TV that I've been able to watch. My sister lives in Greensboro and she RARELY gets to watch a game on TV unless it's a Thurs, Sun, or Mon night game. Unfortunately though, it looks like I won't get to watch tomorrow's game either unless I watch on the internet....again.

I am about two hours below you just south of Fayetteville and I get the Wilmington and Myrtle Beach Fox stations and come to think of it I have watched one Skin game on TV. There have been times when the Panthers weren't playing and Fox either played a Flacon game, Cowboy game or no game at all....I'm like you I watch them on-line and hook my computer up to the TV. The quality sux but I'm watching!

On the506.com, the game switched from the Skins to Giants/49ers in Greenville, NC. Going the wrong way.

Here's the current map. It's like looking at an endangered species progression map at the zoo. Looks like the range of viable pockets of Skins fans is dwindling to the Florence/Myrtle/Wilmington area.

49 bucks for an indoor setup. Easy hookup and the antenna is flat and bout the size of a notebook. You are right about reception though but its worth a try.


Did you have any success with this setup? I live in greensboro also by the way.

I'm in eastern NC (Wilson) and I-95 runs right through here. I've been able to watch 2 games on cable so far this season, other than that I have to watch online. Wilson is right in between Raleigh and Greenville, so I'm not really sure what "market" we fall into here. It's really odd how places like the Triangle, Greensboro, etc don't get the games on TV that I've been able to watch. My sister lives in Greensboro and she RARELY gets to watch a game on TV unless it's a Thurs, Sun, or Mon night game. Unfortunately though, it looks like I won't get to watch tomorrow's game either unless I watch on the internet....again.


I live in Greensboro and have had 3 of the 5 games on TV so far this year. Only ATL and St. Louis I had to go to a bar for. But unfortunately this week it's not on tv here.

I go uptown to Champions Bar and Grill across from Hooters. Been going there for 5 years so they always have my Skins set up exactly where i want. lol


Same here in Tahoe, been going to the same bar and am automatically awarded *Redskins Corner* complete with volume. I'd rec. anyone that is out of the DC area go out to the local sports bar at least once to check out the scene. Being able to talk to all sorts of different fans from different places and knowing them season in and season out is great times. I was greatly opposed to the thought of it at first too, glad I gave it a chance.
