    SSIA. The rule for years has been that when we’re at home and we host an AFC team, CBS gets the broadcast. So what’s up with that?

    (Not that it’s truly important or anything, but it bugs me a little bit because I find CBS coverage to be superior to FOX coverage as a general rule.)

    Drop the red flag and have them look at it again.

    The short answer….money talks.
    Fox has invested heavily in the league while the 4 letter network is having major financial problems and laying off people.
    When the schedule came out Thursday, the Fox execs were all smiles.

    If I’m not mistaken I think it’s because Orlando and the surrounding areas are Jacksonville primary markets and Bucs second. Since Jags are also hosting an AFC team they ga first to draw from the standard rule but since they still want to show the Bucs in Orlando they just move it to fox.
