Ok I have been seeing alot of threads with people complaining about not being able to see the games in their area. If you're really a crazy fanatic, you would have already figured this out by now, but here it is for all of you.

Game not in Area Solutions Guide

1. Get NFL Sunday Ticket from Directv: Best possible solution, sunday ticket is god.

Too Expensive or not available???

2. Find a friend who has NFL Sunday Ticket: Go out there and meet somebody, find a Dolphins fan and watch it there, or you can use a Slingbox and hook it up to someone else's TV and watch it through your computer.

No friends??

3. There are things called sports bars that broadcast every game on sunday ticket at the same time. Go to a bar, I know it seems sort of addict to start drinking at 1 ET 10PT, but who cares. Anything to watch the game.

Not old enough or no sports bars in your area???

4. MOVE!!!!!!!

This is so true.

I have the Sunday Ticket and love it. The Superfan was free this year, so it really doesn't matter if the Dolphins play in HD or not. I bought a new HDTV this year and love the HD programmiing, but I'am not going to go cry a river when the Dolphins don't play in HD. I'am just happy to get to see the game. Those that can't afford Sunday Ticket, go get a job and save a few bucks each month. It can be done, anybody can save $19 a month if they really want to. Still don't want to, sports bars are open to kids, sports bars are considered restaurants.

I agree with the original post.

I've been going to sportsbars to watch the games since 1995. I can't afford the sunday tix/directv, so I go to a bar.

Anyone who claims the bars in their areas don't have sunday ticket is not looking hard enough. If you are under 21, sneak in or get a fake ID. This is Miami Dolphins football we're talking about. MAKE AN EFFORT!!!

The thing is, kids aren't breaking the laws at a "true" sports bar. I know of several sports bars back home that allow 5 year kids in. Just because these kids are 14 years old or whatnot, they can still go in. Just drink a coke and enjoy a hamburger, they'll be fine.

with the flex schedule in mobile, ala i get to see the saints at 12:00pm and the dolphins at 3:00pm! If the game wasnt moved to 3:00pm the only game that would of been shown here was ths Saints on Fox at 12:00pm!

To see if the dolphins game is being shown In your area check out the nfl map!

How much do you spend at the bar?

I would have DirecTV anyway cuz it kicks cable's ***. And I know that I spend less money on Sunday Ticket than I would in a bar for 14 Sundays.

Although i love the people that cry over it not being in HD. I mean i see maybe 2 games a year, and the people that complain about it not being in HD see them all year long. man i'd watch it in black in white without sound if i could...

I totally agree with you man! I would make it happen if I was in their situation. You can do anything you put your mind to.
I don't care if the only place to watch the game in my area was under a bridge with a Bum, who somehow had a TV hooked up to get the game. Ide invite all my friends over and we would sit under that bridge, on the slope like stadium style seating.

Did you buy DirectTV on your own when you were a teenager? Were you able to order it in college while living in dorms with cable contracts? Did you ever live in a foreign country in which you were able to watch all of the games? Doubtful.

I hate sports bars. Most of them have tv sets sitting up so high you get a neck sprain just trying to watch the game, and to boot you usually look like an arse just sitting there without a drink so you end up spending more money than you would if you had DirectTicket. I had DirectTicket two years ago and then we went with Dish Network for a two year contract. Next year, I'm ditching Dish and going back to NFL SundayTicket baby!

I think the problem is that these "national broadcasts" that are on NFL Network are being seen by the minority of people not the majority. If the NFL wasn't king then I think more people would be mad about not being able to see meaningful games. People miss out on games that should be spotlighted like Cincy/Baltimore because they don't get the NFL Network. I had the NFL Network then Time Warner dropped it and has not replaced it. The explanation was that it is a channel like the NBA's league pass or whatever it is called. That would hold true except games that are nationally broadcasts for the NBA are available to everybody.

Answers to your questions:
1. No, but I could of if I wanted to, I had money from various jobs as a teen.
2. No, I went to the "School of Hardknocks" there was no dorms.

So what you are saying is you have never experienced what some of our fellow fans have. Many couldn't get something like that as a teenager, many decided to go to college and had to live in the dorms, and MANY live outside the U.S. because the Phins have a widespread fanbase. Re-read my third question? It's pretty straightforward. And before you go where you are headed with that third answer; I've lived, worked, and studied in foreign countries (with few available games on tv). I'm also a veteran of the U.S. Army and actually served at the real school of hard knocks (Ft. Knox), so quit pretending. And since you're so American, how many servicemen live abroad? Why don't you tell them to just go out and buy Sunday Ticket? So don't allude to living abroad as being un-American and please stop making us look so damn ignorant in the eyes of other nations. Also, I suggest a refund from your "school of I'm bitter that I couldn't make it in college."

In your 3rd question you said you were able to watch all of the games.
You also put words in my mouth, I never said living abroad was un-American. Your also trying to make me out to be some ignorant American who doesn't like anything un-American, when in reality most of my friends are from other countries.

What am I bitter about? Because I dont know how many Servicemen live abroad? Sorry but that one wasn't on the test.

Refund me what, money can't get you in my School.

Read the question again. It was very straightforward:

Did you ever live in a foreign country in which you were able to watch all of the games? Doubtful.
I'll break it down for ya. The answer is doubtful becuase there are very few countries that show all of the games, if any at all. Take Italy for example. They would show one game a week, sometimes two and it was completely random as to who they would show (Cowboys most often for some godawful reason).

I also didn't put words in your mouth. I said you alluded to it. Big difference and I believe you were.

Bitter about not knowing how many servicemen...etc.? What? Not even sure what you're talking about there. The bitter remark in my post was in response to the lame "school of hard knocks" comment. It's about bitterness at the inability to make it into or through real school. And now it's gotten even lamer with "money can't get you into my school." :lol:...:whew:...:lol: Thats pretty hardcore, yo. :rolleyes2

Also, ignorance doesn't make me angry, it makes me sad. Any post that actually uses the lame (trend continues) word "haterade" is silly and ignorant.

The very claim that they're nationally broadcast, ingeniously places the onus, on those cable companies, who's customers came up short changed, and soon revealed their patience for it, equally short.

Myself, I finally broke down and got the ticket.
Aside from the fact I'm not particularly fond of having to drag myself out to a bar at 10am every Sunday morning, only to have to jockey for a seat in relative proximity to the Dolphin matchup, not overly enshrouded in pea green, pungent Buffalo, or two fat Pats, but that I've had my absolute fill of blazing buffalo wings for breakfast.

No need to get annoyed at each other, we're all Dolphan brothers.

Its like when a drunk Dolphins fan spilt beer on me by accident, he thought I was gonna get all mad and angry, I said NOPE! Don't worry about it, we're both Dolphans and I'm just as crunk.

The moral to the story is I don't hate on "Dolphans". Now if it were an AFC rival or something, there would have been a physical altercation of sorts.
