Was the Steelers game on locally?  That's usually the only reason for a Sunday Ticket blackout? Preseason also is all weird on their.

Try calling them on the phone during daylight hours and talk to a human you find competent.

Blacked out for whatever the fuck reason.  I checked my home address on their dealywhopper and it said that I'm blacked out.  Sounds like a racism thing to me.

I think you checked MLB.  NFL Ticket only blacks out games that are being shown on your local Fox or CBS.  Are you using your Texass address?

I believe NFL Ticket is only offered online (as in, online only) for addresses that can't get Directv.

I'm not on DirectTV and don't desire to be on DirectTV.  But I do own a roku and a fire stick.  I was hoping to sign up for an online account but I apparently am too dumb to figure out how.  The picture I posted above about not being eligible came from here:  https://nflst.directv.com/

You're not too dumb to figure it out.
There's nothing to figure out.
Directv has an exclusive deal.
They only make Sunday Ticket available outside of their regular TV subscription if you live in an area that can't get their satellite TV service and allegedly select multi-use addresses where you can't get satellite TV.

If you click "view offer details," it has it all laid out pretty clearly:
Quote
NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV service is only available to non-DIRECTV customers who live in select multi-dwelling unit buildings (apartments, condos, etc.,) nationwide in the U.S. where DIRECTV service is not available, live in select areas within various metropolitan cities, live in a residence that has been verified as unable to receive DIRECTV satellite TV service due to obstructions blocking access to satellite signals, or are college students. NFLSUNDAYTICKET.TV U only available to students actively enrolled in post-secondary educational institutions.

Gotcha.  I guess I didn't realize it was a DirectTV thing or NOTHING.  Seems kinda stupid of the NFL to package it that way.  I have a single team subscription to MLB.TV and I love it.  LIke $89 a year and I get to watch every Astros game.  I'm not going to get DirectTV because I hate it.

Don't disagree, but Directv paid the league a shit ton of money to get that exclusive.

NHL has done it better than anyone. MLBAM runs their service now, but they don't have awful blackout restrictions for entire regions of the country like MLB does.

ATT has no interest in giving up the exclusive that Directv negotiated with the NFL in the 90's and paid a jillion dollars for.  It is a strong relationship, and you wont ever see it on Dish as long as long as current leadership is in place there.  You can get some great deals on DIRECTV these days and Sunday Ticket is not the big price it used to be.

And traded Hundley off to the Seahawks for a 2019 draft pick.

Both good deals for the Pack.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Imagine Bert as an NFL GM.  He would be an improvement at the Jets.

I think it's a great deal for Bridgewater.

Jets getting a 3 for Bridgewater is a win.  I don’t get giving a 3 pick for a player sitting on the bench.

the jets have been trying to trade bridgewater since training camp and got a third round pick for him. he wasn't going to start. in addition to the 3rd rounder, the saints gave up almost all their cap space for this year, so i'm not sure that was such a great trade for them.
time will tell.

edit: tex beat me to it.

bridgewater was the best qb on the jets roster by a mile and he's only 25.  once he was in NY they should not have traded up to get darnold.  he's overrated and won't amount to jack shit. just like 50 other qbs drafted in the last decade.  palmer was the last usc qb to go pro and not suck and bridgewater may be better than him.  barkley, leinart, can't even remember all the starting qb's at usc to suck in the nfl.

You do if you think you have a real shot at winning a title.  It’s the only real question mark on the team.  Plus the Saints did receive a 6th rounder plus another 3rd round pick if TB doesn’t resign.

For context I think Sam fucking Bradford netted a 1st and 2nd rounder.
