    I live in Riverside and I'm basically right in the middle of Los Angeles and San Diego. Am I considered "local" when it comes to things like blackouts?

    I'm asking because our schedule says tomorrow's game is supposed to be on Fox but on my satellite guide, Fox has the Packers-Cowboys game on instead. Will they actually show the Bolts game and it's just a error on the guide or am I screwed? If so, does anyone know where I can see games online for free or will I have to wait until gameday to find those links?

    If CBS has the Chargers game it's pretty much guaranteed you'll see it in the IE.

    Fox is a different monster when you're part of the "LA" market. I'm in the OC so I feel your pain. Fox almost always shows the Cowboys games in major markets, esp one like LA without a specific team tied to it. I think they own part of the franchise or something... super lame.

    We're stuck with GB/DAL tomorrow too so I'm heading to watch in Carlsbad with friends/family. Best bet if you can't make it to SD county for the game or don't have DirecTV Sunday Ticket would be to find a sports bar. :( Sorry.

    Love this site :wub:

    They even list who the announcers will be so you can plan ahead to use your mute button on Dan Dierdorff :lol:

    Oh I know (thank god!) - I just have used it for awhile to avoid listening to him hehehe - I also enjoy muting Phil Simms and Joe Buck :lol:

    I don't remember hearing a game called by Billick/Brennaman so kinda interested to see how it goes... fingers crossed :D

    Yes it was probably over. I wanted to see Toby Gerhart play but it wasnt on here in my area which is a suprise. USC is on TV here every week. Just not today.

    It goes by the visiting team. Since the Eagles are an NFC team, it will be on Fox.
