    What do you want me to say to them on your behalf?
    Thanks!!

    Just let them know a lot of RAMS and Cleveland fans are pissed that they cannot follow their schedule, and want to know EXACTLY when the game will be televised.

    Re: NFL Network Not rearing the Game...

    Per Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, NFL Network decided not to air a replay of the Saturday's game between the Cleveland Browns and the St. Louis Rams.

    Why? This was the reason according to Florio:


    So why did NFL Network dump the Rams-Browns contest? Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Browns disregarded the new ban on virtual signage during preseason contests. Which prompted NFLN to in turn disregard the Browns’ broadcast.

    Virtual signage are advertisement images that do not physically exist at the stadium but are added to the broadcast film via computer. These often appear as logos projected onto the field. Per Florio, the Browns' version of the broadcast had some of these images and was the copy of the game that NFL Network was scheduled to air. The NFL has a rule against using virtual signage in preseason telecasts. Due to the violation of this rule, NFLN canceled their re-airing of the game and will now wait until they can obtain a copy of the St. Louis Rams' broadcast of the game.

    So, for those of you who were wondering why NFL Network was airing another game when the schedule said it should be ours: you have your answer. I'm with you, I was eager to watch the game again -- bloodbath that it was -- and was disappointed to find the Ratbirds™ playing some Washington team.

    From Mike Florio:

    Currently, NFLN is attempting to secure the rights to the Ramsí broadcast of the game. If that happens, the Rams-Browns game will re-air as scheduled on Monday night at 8:00 p.m. ET and Thursday at 3:00 p.m. ET. Absent the Ramsí broadcast, Giants-Jets and Panthers-Patriots will air in those two slots, respectively.

    I agree with RTID, thanks for the update.

    This must really suck for Browns fans to not be able to see their team's broadcast of preseason games? Hopefully the RBN can get the recording to NFLN so us fans outside the city of St Louis can see the game. Although, with MikeB1603's comment of bloodbath, I am not sure I want to see it. For those that have seen it, please don't give away any of the 'plot'. I have avoided all post game sports event so I won't see anything about this game. It may be tough tomorrow. I have already seen one thread title that has me concerned, so I am sure my coworkers will be talking about the game. I hope I can avoid those conversations. Disliking the Browns broadcasting network even more this year.
