    The Wolverines have a bye week. I was thinking this morning that it sucked having it so early in the season. Not so much anymore, but I think the Wisconsin game is on Fox Sept 21.

    It's always fucking something with these God damned providers.

    I live in the sticks, cable isn't an option. It's either DirectTv or Dish Network. Direct has never blacked out anything that mattered to me until now, but you can't watch Braves games anymore with Dish Network.

    Guess I'll be streaming.

    I hated Direct TV. I'd call the service people all the time when we lost our signal and they'd always ask me "Is it raining?". Damn! I'm gonna lose my TV service every time it's raining? I finally told them "no, my bad, a bird just flew over and I should have known". Then I dumped their ass the same day. Went to Frontier FIOS and have never looked back.

    DirecTV came to my house to upgrade the system and my house was robbed two days later. They got jewelry, coins and cameras. They went directly to where everything was. They fluffed up two drawers to make it look like they were exploring.

    $30,000 in losses that could never be recovered. Can't even get a tax deduction.

    We had something like that happen to us years ago after using a carpet cleaning company. Since then i always have safes (at least two) in both of our homes bolted like a mofo to the floor. Now we also have security cameras out the ass around the outside and motion detectors, entry sensors, etc. inside. If i'm home the next time someone breaks in, the only thing that's going to beat that thief to the hospital are the headlights on the ambulance he'll be riding in.

    Well you can get ABC (CBS, NBC, FOX) over the air with a $20 digital antenna at Walmart. You should have one for emergencies anyway.

    I haven't had this cable/satellite dispute issue for at least 5 years, because I stream PS Vue through a Roku Stick.

    Cut the cord, get a Roku and subscribe to HULU Live. The only drawback is there is about 5 minute delay compared to normal providers so it makes posting in game threads a little harder.

    I'll never go back.

    5 minute delay? Yikes! Not a fan of streaming myself as a primary mode.

    Fox too? Damn! Oh well, I still prefer Direct TV over streaming as a primary mode. I'll just deal with the inconvenience until they work it out - which they will. Sucks for Saturday Morning (GamedDay), but I'll be in the Stadium for the game, so after 10 am or so, I won't care about the ESPN-Direct TV dispute. All I can say is that both sides are stupid and pissing customers off. Let's Go State!
