I do not want a Saturday game or a night game.  Maybe that's just me.  Under the radar suits me just fine.

 

The goal is for the Bills to be no longer "Under The Radar" and a team that is a contender. You are not a contender when your "Under the Radar' and a fixture on the 1:00 pm Sunday spot your an after thought.

If the Bills do play on Saturday I would bet that its the early game. LA @ SF would be the night game as my guess. Good matchup and its a game on the WC so it makes sense time wise to have that as the late game.

 

Peter King actually speculated that SF/LA would be flexed to Sunday night to replace the Bears Chiefs given Chicago's struggles and BUF/NE would be the Saturday night game given the power of NE's name and the Bills most likely be relevant enough to make the game matter.

If the Pats lose this week and we win then the discussion gets stronger for that night game as it could possibly be for the division. 

I think we win the division and baffle the nay sayers.

Pats are on a bye this week. If the bills want to even think about the division. This week is a must win!

Nobody goes to the games except for fans of the other team who fill the stadium to 40-50% capacity.

Those are all pretty good. TB & Houston being the outlier.

Hoping for primetime!

 

Detroit & Denver?

 

I think the Bills/Pats*** for sure will be moved to Saturday.

Looking at last year they had 2 games on each Saturday: week 15 and 16.

The "early" games were each at 4:30, east coast time, and the late (primetime) game at 8:20.

 

I have read that they are flexing 3 games into Saturday this year, but I wonder if they will. There are only 2 matchups that matter: Buf/NE, and LA/SF. 

A few thoughts:

1. if they truly do flex 3 games, one of them is going to be a stinker, with at best only 1 team in the game still competing for a playoff spot.

2. New England is a huge draw for the league, maybe their marque team. I would bet it's more likely they get the 8 slot as they could potentially be playing for the division crown. 

3. Are people here really upset with this? Possibly competing for the division title at best, a wildcard birth at worst, on a freaking Saturday night, under the lights, in December? Between the fans that are nitpicking the 6-2 start and thinking we're awful, and now people saying they would prefer not to play these nationally televised games, I'm beginning to wonder why, exactly, you guys are Bills fans...do you get any joy whatsoever from this HOBBY? I'm already thinking of the friends I'll have over, the food we'll cook, the drinks we'll serve, and the great time me and my family will have with our friends watching a great Bills game. But... I guess it's more "realistic" to just admit this team is bad and hope they get ignored by the national broadcasters and slotted into the Sunday 1pm slot so they can go 7-9 with dignity. That's a much better outcome to hope for. It fills my heart with warmth and joy to picture my holidays without the Bills having the prospects of a great season, as opposed to them being a championship contender on a run which I could enjoy with friends and family, thanks for the realism guys.

So you're saying the Pats* have no chance of winning this week?

If the Bills beat the Browns, then the NFL schedulers could decide that the Bills-Pats game will be important. If the Browns beat the Bills, then the NFL schedulers will likely decide it’s not going to be important.

Most of the people who hate night games on here, are people that work evenings. Im pretty sure they became bills fans, because they are the only team in the entire league that never plays at night.

Lol

 

I've never seen a bunch of fans who want their team to be irrelevant so badly

 

Please no night games! Please no spotlight on our team! 

 

It is kind of incredible how seldom the Bills are on at night... I feel like the Raiders are on primetime once a month no matter what

 

The pointless Chargers team with 3 fans is on at night just as often...

 

Bad news: the Super Bowl is at night....

 

Gonna have to sleep in til 6 am and have some coffee after the afternoon nap to catch that one!

I doubt that. Many on the board who don’t care for night games ( Sunday and Monday in particular) don’t like them because they work the next morning. A home night game is even worse for this group if they wish to attend. Most Bills fans are aware of the team’s lackluster history in night games , and have some epic beat downs and meltdowns ingrained in their memory. Couple that with the ridiculous domination of the Bills by New England for the last two decades, and you see why a primetime game vs the Pats doesn’t sound too appetizing.

The whole thing is such an irony... What is the national view of Bills fans?

 

Bills mafia... Jumping through tables...  Going nuts at tailgates... The scene looks like an out of control spring break party...

 

If you read these boards it sounds like we need to be safely tucked into our beds  by 8pm with some warm milk in our tummies, so we can't handle a night game 

 

Bills Mafia is too sleepy to stay up so late....

 

All 3 Chargers fans stayed up last Thursday!

I don’t think anyone cares much about logistics or schedules on a Saturday night. The Bills have an awful track record in prime time games and any game vs NE. That’s the reason for it’s unpopularity.

I just don't understand how fans aren't EXCITED about it though!

Prime time games are just objectively better. Better announcers, better cameras, better pregame show, it's under the lights. 

Through all of the bad years, from Jauron to Gailey through Rex, I would get excited for Primetime games. 

Now, being older with a family, they're new opportunities to have friends over, everyone brings their kids, food. 

IDK man... if you can't get excited about a SATURDAY NIGHT week 16 game, under the lights, against our biggest rival, for a chance to possibly win the division or at the very least qualify for the playoffs? I honestly think at that point you should do some self reflecting and ask yourself "is this hobby a net positive, or a net negative in my life." Because at that point, what are you choosing to watch other men play a sport for? Your anxiety/negative perceptions of the event have so taken hold that it is a chore--you don't want to watch the product in it's ideal form, because the fear you have that it's going to not be fun.

 

So, for instance, let's say you joined a club of Roller Coaster enthusiasts. And all you did was ride roller coasters. And there were 100 other people in the club, and THEY FUKKING LOVE ROLLER COASTERS. What's the point of the Roller Coaster club, you may be asking? Well, that's the thing--the only point is to have fun while riding roller coasters. Everyone in the club knows that riding roller coasters is never going to make them money, it's just a hobby they really, really enjoy. Some of them maybe flirted with the idea of roller coaster design in college, a few even have relatives that designed some a long time ago. Some people in the club are so into it, they analyze design videos that young roller coaster engineers post on youtube, and grade the likelihood that those future roller coasters will be fun to ride, and talk about it pretentiously like "well, I currently have a low amusement park rating on the potential of that ride, a lot of the metrics look off like speed coming out of a turn." 

 

Now... if you were the member of that Roller Coaster Enthusiast club that didn't want to go to Six Flags and ride the funnest roller coaster in the country, that they FINALLY scored tickets to after 30 years of trying, because you were worried it wasn't going to be fun. And you tried to talk the other roller coaster riders out of wanting to go and have fun, and your argument was "it's too high, it's too fast, it's scary, we'll never be able to go on it, it's at night so there will be a bunch of pretty girls standing there watching us and they'll be playing music really loud on the midway, and, and, and, those rides are stupid anyways the roller coaster clubs probably just going to cancel before then anyways." Like, if that was you, at what point can the other members of the roller coaster enthusiast club ban you from the twocartrack.com forums and tell you to find a hobby you enjoy?
