A station that’s network O&O has to air the entire network’s lineup. No preemptions.
100% false. Look no further to WLS-TV Chicago regularly preempting ABC programming for Cubs baseball. There are countless other examples of network owned & operated TV stations airing alternate programming.

Re: Guests replying to topics and other strange things

Those "guests" are more than likely bots that are probing the software for a backdoor way in. That part of the phpbb software is likely written so that those attempts are displayed as what you are seeing.

Re: Fake news, agenda-driven bias, and ignorance

How was that incident with the MAGA-hat boys thing even worthy of initial coverage by the so-called mainstream media? No one got hurt. No one even touched anyone else. No one broke any laws. There was no reason for law enforcement to be called (and thankfully no one did). Nothing happened other than...

Re: Mario Impemba speaks out after altercation

I found it interesting that neither took the time to apologize. Primarily to each other and FSD, but also to the Tigers. Now that the 90-day cooling off period is over, I'd expect we'll start hearing more about who will take the FSD openings - and if either Mario or Rod will be in the running for a ...

Re: AMP 98.7 flipping!

They just aired a VO that mentioned Amp "went a little crazy". Maybe a throwback to just doing Christmas music weekends only?

Doesn't have the feel of a permanent format change - yet.

Re: Unpopular opinion that you hold (not political)

Other than between significant others, adults that aren't related to each other should not exchange Christmas gifts. Ever.

Re: Michigan v. Ohio State

Well said Craig.

I also share Matt's distaste for PSU, but can recognize that the current players and coaches played no role in the Sandusky/Paterno criminal enterprise. Good for them overcoming all that and becoming winners.

Re: Michigan v. Ohio State

Let's just do a 4 week 16 team playoff and be done with it. Biggest issue with that is the extra exposure players have to injuries like concussions. I suspect there would be great resistance from the medical field should anyone seriously propose adding more major college football games to the sched...

Re: Michigan v. Ohio State

I'm definitely not a fan of how the college football playoff currently works. I don't see how you could exclude a conference champion and pick a team that that isn't even playing in its conference's championship. For my money, as long as the playoff is at 4 teams, the top 4 conference championship t...

Re: TV Greatest Episodes

I find many of the Barney Miller episodes still resonate very well with me. Not quite on the level of Lucy of course, but still pretty impressive to me that Miller was written well enough to be good viewing 40 years later.

Re: Michigan v. Ohio State

I don't think so either.

The only vote that mattered was the line judge's. Replay was a waste of time - it wouldn't have been overturned either way because the camera angles they had available weren't square with the 15.

Michigan v. Ohio State

You don't need the chains.

Because the ball was spotted at the 25 to start the OT, by rule to get the first down just the very front of ball has to be marked touching the white line of the 15.

100%. Starting out with just a Christmas song or two per hour after Thanksgiving is what I like. Go wall-to-wall on the Friday before Christmas, then on the 27th go back to a sprinkling 'til New Year's Eve day.
