Feeling KMSS' pain
KMSS is the Fox affiliate here in Shreveport. Fox carries NFC games. Thus, KMSS is thrust into the middle of the Great Saints-Cowboys debate from September to December.
No matter what happens on a conflict Sunday, the station can't win. Show the Cowboys, and Saints fans are mad. Show the Saints, and Cowboys fans are mad.
Even when KMSS thinks it has avoided the situation, the way it appeared this coming Sunday, the NFL sticks its head into the matter. The league moved the Saints-Steelers game from noon to 3:15 p.m.
Uh oh, that's when the Cowboys and Cardinals are showing. Had the Saints game been left alone, the station would have carried both and everyone would be happy.
They aren't now.
Station manager Doug Ginn says the breakdown is 7 Cowboys and 9 Saints games this year to be shown on KMSS.
You'd think that would satisfy most.
So fans of the team not shown will gripe and then go to a sports bar to watch the game.
Me, I've got DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket package.
That's one way to avoid the whole mess.
