    Around the NFL: They're not right on schedule

    By Tom Pelissero
    tpelisse@greenbaypressgazette.com

    It was widely reported that Thursday was the tentative release date for the NFL's 2008 schedule, based on advance programming listings for NFL Network.

    As of Friday afternoon, though, the schedule-release show wasn't listed on the network's Web site, and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello indicated the date has been pushed back for the second consecutive year.

    "It won't be April 3, I can tell you that," Aiello said in an e-mail.

    Last year, the schedule was to be released on April 5, but it didn't come out until six days later. A similar timeline would put this year's release in the middle of next week.

    The league has announced it will reveal the primetime games for opening weekend Monday, the first day of the NFL meetings in Florida.

    Figures. I wonder if the Broncos will be at fault again this year?

    Not surprised at all. When I posted who will be kicking off the season, that announcement said "The rest of the schedule will be announced later next month."

    Hopefully the schedule comes out sooner rather than later.

    I'm just waiting for the schedule to come out so I can make my vacation plans. The wife has her vacation dates set in stone (in Nov.), we need to see when we play and where before we start paying for any travel plans.

    A couple years ago, I hit a donkey with my Charger. The donkey died, the Charger rocks on.

    It was on the way home from the Chargers win over the Steelers on a Sunday night in 2006. Even then, the Charger steamrolled the donkey.

    Out here it's common to hit deer, antelope etc. You are the first I have ever heard hit a donkey. Was it wearing an orange colored jersey and screaming like a girl. :icon_rofl:

    There are many wild burros up here in the mountains. They were rounded up several years back and taken to the desert. Imagine my surprise to see several of them in the middle of the road at 1:00 a.m.
