I'm furious that the NFL continues to refuse the NFL Sunday Ticket to Dish Network. I've written several complaints and have yet to receive a response. The NFL has also just pulled C-Band from Sunday Ticket, leaving Directv with the monopoly. Why should we be forced to use Directv to see NFL games? They denied the merger of Directv and Dish because of the monopoly it would create. How is this not the same thing? It is one thing for an owner to make an agreement with a network (as outrageous as that I find that already), but this is the NFL in its entirety making an exclusive deal with one satellite provider. Though you can purchase Sunday Ticket as your only Directv programming, you still have to pay the monthly receiver fees or the reactivation of receiver fees. Either way, you still are paying more than someone who uses Directv as their main satellite provider.

Who are YOU to decide what game we watch after the start of the game? My God, I have a house full of Bears' and Vikings' fans who came here to watch THAT game NOT bucs and falcons!
