    Nope. He’s been banging this drum relentlessly for years.

    For someone with no fantasy or gambling related interest, 4th quarter action for the 1:00 games is fantastic.

    With the different pace of games it's at least an hour, so an hour and half with all the OT so far.

    My ideal Sunday is the Patriots as the 4:30 start.

    Just for fun here is how things would stand today if they were using next years scoring.

    Wait, what? An hour? So 1 pm games are finishing anywhere from 330 to 430? Come on man. You’re just watching taped highlights.

    Search returned exactly one post in this thread, and he stated that it was understandable that Tiger had faded on the day in question because he was worn down. Then he made a mild comment about how ESPN's overhyped coverage of Tiger at precisely the moment when he was fading was embarrassing.

    You can agree or disagree, but unless you have something else, that is not "banging this drum relentlessly for years." There is another member who has been banging that drum relentlessly across multiple threads, but I'm not aware of anything other than that one post for dc.

    So absolutely there was a game last week that ended after 4:30, since I was flipping back and forth between it and the start of the Pats game. The game doesn't bed to end at 3:30 to have the exciting deciding moments be then. You hit 3:00 and teams are starting to go for it on 4th down and managing their time and drives to tie it up and take the lead. Plus you're skipping all the commercials normally associated with that time of the game. It's fantastic.

    I’m not sure why you feel the need to white knight him here, but your search wasn’t very comprehensive. The “breathless” coverage from Espn and “Baghdad Bob”have been recurrent complaints.

    Your comment was clearly valid, and I was obviously not reading those threads. However, it's worth noting that you made the comment in this thread, so it's unsurprising that I would search this thread.

    Having said that, the bolded was uncalled for. Knock it off.

    Reed can't buy a putt today. His distance control is good, but he is off line on everything.
    Molinari just looks dreadful.
    Mickelson is already +2 after 4 holes.

    These fellas appear to be dialing it in and ready to get on their respective planes to Paris for next week's festivities. Super excited for the RC next week. I'm already planning ways to make up some sleep so I can get up at 2 or 3 am every morning F-Su. Something fantastic about watching golf with a hot cup of coffee in the pitch dark with your favorite dog while the rest of the house sleeps.

    But on the other end of the spectrum, Rosie, Rory and Tiger are gonna give us a show, I think. I wonder how nervous Tiger is compared with all the rest of his big rounds. He's had chances on Sundays this year and just hasn't quite gotten it done. But a 3 stroke lead on a course he is shredding this week - I wonder if he's more confident or, somewhere inside, terrified. Should be a fun afternoon. Also interesting to see how Rory fares. He's been perfect at times this week, and then dreadful. He's an absolute enigma to me. I feel like he should have been the "next" Tiger, more than anyone else, but he has consistently fallen short of that particular place. Not to say he isn't successful, because he obviously is; he's phenomenal. I think he's as talented as Tiger, but missing the singularly focused drive that Tiger had in his youth. It probably makes for a better overall quality of life, but at the expense of things like the career grand slam (to this point) and even more majors at his very young age.

    Curious to see the tv ratings today. How much can Tiger close the gap with the NFL.

    Neither. I'm a football fan. I went to Providence College, which has no football team, and yet, I probably watch at least a dozen college games a week without a rooting interest. I don't gamble, and I have one fantasy team, and I don't particularly watch for those guys, I can check the box scores for that. Just love the game. I find it easier to watch golf via DVR, and get the same enjoyment skipping all of the monotony between shots, than I do football.

    The point remains that your search wasn't comprehensive and you went ahead and told him he was wrong about dc when he was absolutely right. You jumped the gun here.

    The follow-up video is one of the funniest things I’ve seen on the Internet this week. Dude plays it totally cool with the head nod to Tiger and then flips the F out when it gets returned.

    Yeah I don’t know. Hicks just said they are front loading commercials so they could go commercial free the “last few hours,” whatever that will end up being.

    I'm ready. Believe me. Tiger's on pace for his first win in half a decade and NBC's reaction won't be to get rid of commercials. Their work during the Open Championship was brutally bad when Tiger was in the mix. It was the most commercials ever.

    10 months ago, Tiger was ranked 1,193. He's 21 now. That's kind of funny.

    Rose and Rory look shakey. Tiger is not giving up a 5 stroke lead with 14 left. He knows he just needs to par in and he's pretty much the best at managing risk on the course.

    I'm hoping that the Ryder Cup will be as commercial free as possible. Get the commercials in the first few holes of each window and then after that give me golf.

    If Tiger wins, though, no one is going to talk about whoever wins the Fed Ex Cup.

    I think the opposite is true. If Tiger wins, more people are going to talk about golf in general than if he didn't. It's good for the game especially going into Ryder Cup week.

    No, what they don't want is no one talking about who won the FedEx Cup. That's why they're changing the rules. Of course they like Tiger winning. They just want his win to be winning the Cup.
