Merry Christmas, NFL Network

New England Patriots Present

From the New England Patriots.

The Patriots have given the NFL Network the best Christmas present ever. For those of you who do not know, the NFL Network has been in a battle with some of the cable companies over offering their channel on the basic cable service. And the cable networks want it to be a premium channel. I agree with the NFL Network and think that it should be a part of the basic package.

NFL NetworkThe cable companies thought that they could strong arm the NFL Network and force them to agree with them, thus making the NFL Network a premium instead of basic. They thought that they could do this because no one would care enough to actually complain about it. Well, the cable companies worst nightmare happened.

The New England Patriots are on the verge of history. They have the opportunity to become only the second team in NFL history to go through the regular season undefeated. And to add more to it, Tom Brady, who played for the University of Michigan, can become the record holder for the most touchdown passes in a single season. And Randy Moss can become the single season record holder for touchdown receptions. The NFL Network must be jumping for joy, because there is only one place that you will be able to see all of this and that is on the NFL Network.

I can imagine that the phones at the cable companies will be ringing off the hook all week with demands for the NFL Network to be offered on the basic channels. However, I do know that I need not worry about it at all because I have AT&T U-Verse and they offer it as a part of their basic service. But if I had cable I would be calling this week demanding the NFL Network. If you want more information as to what you can do go to and find out what you can do.
