Recommended Posts

Did they say one of the Skins preseason games was gonna be televised nationally? As they were going to commercial they were running down the preseason schedule and I swore I heard, "blah, blah, blah......the REDSKINS"

Can anyone confirm or shoot this down?

NFL preseason dates and times announced

NEW YORK (May 15, 2003) -- The dates and kickoff times for a 66-game NFL preseason schedule were announced today, beginning with an American Bowl between the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tokyo, Japan on August 2.

The Tokyo game –- televised live at 5:00 AM ET on ESPN2 and re-aired at 8:00 PM ET on ESPN -– is the first of 11 national preseason telecasts. It will be followed two nights later by the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Monday night, August 4 featuring the Green Bay Packers versus the Kansas City Chiefs in Canton, Ohio (ABC, 8:00 PM ET).

The 2003 preseason schedule was announced in February, without dates and times, which now have been determined.

I am going to a trade show in Chicago on Sat and right around the corner from my hotel is the ESPNZONE. I'm grabbing one of the front row recliners and making sure my waiter knows not to let my run out of :pint: .

I know its only preseason but I am excited.

Hang in there, guys. The day is quickly coming when you'll be able to get all the preseason games live on PPV somewhere or other. Just today there was a big article in the WP about the launch of the NFL Channel this November, and how one of the items up for discussion is live telecast of future preseason games.

Seems to me there's just too much money prospectively to be made for someone NOT to bid into the coverage of all these games. Most if not all of the games are locally broadcast anyway ... it's just a matter of negotiating the labyrinthine morass of the rights fees.

Hang tough for another year or two.


Actually, I have no idea if that's true or not. I just wanted to say "labyrinthine morass."

It's hard to work that puppy into everyday conversation.

"Hey Brave, maybe you can close your eyes and everytime they say Stephen Davis just act like it was last year....hahaha!!" - Steve Y

No Steve ... if I want to close my eyes and remember Stephen Davis it won't be last year I'll be thinking of. :)
