    LOL, let's see. Will the nation watch the Dodgers-Reds? Or the Giants-Cowboys?

    Hmmm.

    Needed a sacrificial baseball game to get zero ratings.

    I will probalby flip back and forth. The Reds game will likely be an important one, and the Cowboys/Giants will DEFINITELY be important.

    Bengals opener at 1, and the Reds at 8.

    I'm cool with that

    The NFL sucks.

    I'd rather watch an Astros/Marlins Spring Training game over the Super Bowl.

    Re: Sunday September 8th now a night game

    I'm a member of a message board that is dedicated to sports media (laugh it up) and there is a thread over there that has discussed this for weeks....which MLB game will espn choose as the sacrificial lamb that night? Thought process being no need to waste a good ratings draw as any MLB game will get slaughtered that night. Reds "won" the sweepstakes I guess.

    Honestly, ESPN would be better off just skipping a week. The numbers will be humiliating.

    As for me, the NFL game will be my main attraction that night--I'll either DVR the Reds and watch late night (I'll be up all night nervous about the Redskins playing Monday anyway) or flip over during commercials.

    As much as I love the Reds, that Giants-Cowboys game is far superior in significance and intensity for obvious reasons. If you just don't like football, then of course you watch baseball. But even as big of a fan as I am of baseball/Reds, the NFL offers superior viewing that night IMO...and clearly millions and millions share my thinking, which is what continues to hurt MLB in the ratings game.

    Re: Sunday September 8th now a night game

    if the reds and bengals play at the same time, I would most likely watch the bengals (if itīs a big game for the reds etc. perhaps the reds)

    if the bengals donīt play, I donīt care which game is on TV at the same time than a reds game..

    One thing not to forget in all this is that ESPN will probably capture a large share of the L.A. market. L.A. doesn't have a football team so they have no stake in this game (except for Cowboys and Giants fans) but the baseball game could have an impact on the Dodgers winning the division.
