    (FYI) Bears game time has been changed

    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/new-england-patriots/post/_/id/4688554/pats-bears-game-moved-to-415

    The Patriots' road game against the Bears on Dec. 12 at Soldier Field has been moved to a 4:15 p.m. ET kickoff, the Bears announced today. The game was originally scheduled for 1 p.m., but as part of flex scheduling, has been moved by CBS so it reaches a wider audience

    I'm with ya, man. Maybe they'll flex the Jets/Phins to an earlier/later time. Otherwise, it's watching it online.

    Up here in Syracuse they've been showing the Pats more often than the Jests. But the bandwagon is definately rolling up here. Brand new Jets gear everywhere.

    Eason, the Giants are playing the Vikings at 1:00 on the 12th; I think the NFL flexed the Pats/Bears to prevent splitting the New York market with a much better 1:00 game.

    thats not really fair to put on on Kraft like that. he doesn't have any control over the flexing of games.

    CBS makes the call, not Kraft. There is greater market competition at 1:00 as more games are played. Moving the game to 4:00 allows CBS to make more money from advertising as more markets will broadcast the game than would at 1:00. It makes perfect sense from a bottomline standpoint.

    The NFL is not in charge of flexing. CBS and Fox are for the games they broadcast.

    I love the Pats I am just getting tired of changing my family schedule to watch a game. I live in Saratoga NY so its a Jets / Giants market. I understand that. They have out of 16 games maybe 10-12 Pats games on regular tv here. I refuse to buy Sunday ticket to watch 4-5 PATS GAMES.............I am just frustrated thats all, yesterday I looked on the Cable Guide and Pats/ Bears was there ...only to be taken off today..........I'll get over it ....just venting

    I swear I've meet that guy. I don't go to sports bars for games or live anywhere near you either. It seems that everyone I run into couldn't even tell you what a Flying Elvis is. Hope you the best in finding a way to see it.

    What did you expect??? You liv ein New York. Chances are, Patriot fans you meet are going to be post 1993 or worse post 2001.  Yes, there are always venerable transplants around, but the majority of people you meet outside the borders are casual.

    I lived in southern Californina for 4 years and had a great bar to go to in Anaheim, and lucky to have a good Patriot fanbase.  But it was a necessity considering they had all games on, and Pittsburgh/ Chicago fans are loud and proud too. 

    Good luck.  Don't moan if you arent going to buy the package.  Thats on you and your choices.  Not on the NFL or the networks.

    The Bears have a great defense, so it will be an interesting game. I hope the move means that it will be on national TV.
