“The rules about what games local TV stations are allowed to air are crafted between the NFL and networks which carry the games (FOX, CBS, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network). Local affiliates (i.e. FOX31 Denver) have little control in the process – and are sometimes at the mercy of the decisions made on-the-fly by the network.” https://kdvr.com/2013/11/08/how-the-nfl-and-tv-networks-influence-the-football-games-fox31-airs/
I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a close friend of mine loves the Philadelphia Eagles. I have come to enjoy following that team also. The problem is that the corporate operators don’t care about our wanting to watch the Eagles games. Eagle’s games are seldom televised on the west coast. It appears to be all about what is best for the networks and the NFL.
Channel checking the huge station choices offered by my cable company, I am amazed at how many stations are simply awful and in my opinion, a waste of channel space. It is really retarded that there is not a second tier system where there are more sports networks that can bid on out of area NFL and other sports events and fit into my cable channel choices.
This morning I check my cell phone news and spot this.
“Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump admitted on Fox News that he’s been too busy to get a birthday gift for his wife, first lady Melania Trump, who turned 48 years old Thursday.”
I guess that makes sense from a narcissist who is too busy tweeting self aggrandizing tweets.
December 30, 2018
December 30, 2018, I get a call on my cell phone telling me that my Apple account has been breached and to press the number one on my phone to talk to technical support. I press number one but get disconnected. I look at my cell phone call log and write down the phone number that shows for this last call. I go to my computer and do a phone number reverse lookup and discover that the call shows coming from Apple. I call that number and after wading through their awful automated answering machine I get to talk to a live person. I describe what happened and the technical support lady said the call was a scam. I told her that my phone showed her number in my call log. She said that it was easy for people to show other phone numbers as the call back number. I thanked her and hung up.
Why is it that anyone can alter their call back number? The phone industry is retarded for allowing this to take place. I propose that altering your call back number become a criminal offense because I fail to see any good reason why it should change except for nefarious reasons.
