    The NFL won't touch Friday, at least not during high school football season. Maybe in late November.

    I'm intrigued by the idea of the game being broadcast on a different medium. Google and Netflix want to live stream them, which sounds like a decent idea, but have you ever tried connecting to something online that millions of other people are simultaneously trying to access? It's a *****.

    Frankly, I hate these mid-week games. There was something special about the NFL being on during Thanksgiving day, but now it's just another Thursday football game.

    It also ****s with fantasy football players. Have someone who's injured and is a game-time decision on Sunday and his weaker replacement on your bench is playing Thursday night? Oh well, good luck.

    Not mention there is almost no time if you're a road team the week prior to the Thursday game and then a road team on Thursday night. Fly home Sunday night. Get treatment on Monday and watch film. Your usual day off would be Tuesday, but I guess you don't get that because you need to install a game plan. Wednesday is practice and then travelling. Walk through Thursday and then the game. That sounds like a pain in the ass. No wonder these Thursday games are usually a bore.

    I usually find myself looking forward to the college games on ESPN more than the NFLN games, and I don't like college football anywhere nearly as much as I like pro football.

    The NFL won't step on college football's toes. They have a good working relationship and get a free farm system out of it. Maybe in December when the conference championship games are done and the bowl games haven't picked up yet.

    They have flex games those weeks, so if theres a game the NFL wants people seeing they could bump it up a day.
