Everyone here knwows I don;t watch Fox "news" but I do occasionally watch Fox Sports when they are showing a good football game like the one today between the Vikings and the Broncos today.

But what the h*ll happened?

In a very hard-fought beautifully played second half--with a TIE score and one minute left to play in regulation time--Fox switched to the PRE-GAME show of the AZ Cardinals game with not one word of explanation or apology.

What the heck is wrong with this network?

Do they not care what their viewers think about them?


We know they hardly ever get the news right--but can't they even get SPORTS right?

Remember the Heidi football game?  I remember it because we were in Montana and the temperature  outside was a negative number.  My wife wanted to watch the Heidi show.   When they switched(NBC) the Jets were winning .  “Broadway” Joe Namath was quarter back .  Oakland scored two touchdowns in the last minute to winen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heidi_Game#Footbal...


 


I watch Fox southwest sports  because they carry Big XII sports.

Foda--hi--yes I do remember the Heidi Game--that was one of the first things I shouted at the tv when they switched to the pre-game stuff without warning or explantion.


I also used some of my rich supply of epithets in six languages.


I watch Fox xposrts when they're showing a game involving one of my fave teams--like the Vikings. I abhor the Cardinals and they've been so awful this year too--so to suddenky see their pre-game show instead of the last minute of a really good tie game was doubly disturbing.
