Awww come on!

Not a great HD day for NFL football. CBS is only showing 3 or 4 games all day in HD (none in this area, we got the Ravens in SD then tennis). Fox's HD is barely worth watching. Macroblocking made the Eagles game almost unwatchable and gave me a headache. I'm not even going to mention the expected quality of NBC's upcoming Sunday Night game, given their sub-par track record.

Then I discover that D* will take down TNT-HD every Sunday to make bandwidth for Sunday Ticket. Now, I'm no NASCAR fan, but you don't fuck with people who drive F-250s and drink Miller Lite by the case. Foolish move, DirectTv. Very foolish.

Sure, I'll watch anyway (because I'm a football whore) but I was thinking of buying the Sunday Ticket with Superfan and now I'm seriously reconsidering given the sorry state of HD football that I'd get for the $$ I'd be shelling out.
