    Such a bad look for the NFL and Dolphins.
    You had the doctor who discovered CTE, Bennet Omalu, saying earlier in the week Tua should not have gone back into the Bills game, and then you had Chris Nowinski (director of Boston University School of medicine CTE Center) tweeting before the game last night "If Tua takes the field tonight, it's a massive step back for concussion care in the NFL. If he has a 2nd concussion that destroys his season or career, everyone involved will be sued & should lose their jobs, coaches included. We all saw it, even they must know this isn't right "

    Pretty much everybody thinks Tua was concussed last Sunday. To trot him out again 4 days later is just beyond irresponsible.
    Plus this is another reason why these Thursday games are bullshit.

    Yes.  Get rid of these Thursday games.  I can't remember the last time I watched one.

    I still find it hard to believe that they can't concoct a schedule where you have a bye before a Thursday game?  I'm pretty sure I can do one in Excel for them if they want...

    I wonder what the ratings are so far on Prime. I've only watched some of the first halves the last few weeks. It's annoying to jump from one streaming service to another.

    Too late for me on any if the night games.  If my favorite team is playing I may watch first half but 345am comes too soon to screw around with football 3 nights a week.

    I would be fine with watching on Amazon if the games started when I could actually watch them.

    a lot of times I think people go overboard on their outrage over things the NFL does but in the Tua case every single thing about this is abhorrent.  How he was allowed back last week and then play 4 days later?  The doctor(s) who cleared him need to face scrutiny in this. what a disgrace.  I hope like hell Tua doesn't end up like an Eric Lindros where this ruins his career and/or gives him long term affects.  

    The Thursday night games after playing on Sunday are just torture on the players. No one likes it except tv.  The games usually suck too.  the Amazon Prime thing blows too.  The picture on prime sucks and that fact I can't easily switch to other channels on this streaming services sucks.

    Haven't watched a single snap on Amazon yet. My wife has Prime, but our smart TV isn't all that smart... we can only get Prime on our ipad. 

    Truth be told in recent years I don't put on TNF or MNF unless my team is playing, and that was when it was on regular ass cable, never mind a streaming service. I just don't care enough about it. 

    Some Bruins games were streaming on Hulu last season as well, but I couldn't be bothered. If it wasn't on regular cable, I just wouldn't watch.

     I had the same issue. No problem watching on the macbook, but our 5 year old LG smart TV was terrible.

    Yeah I have an issue with my older tv and prime up in my bedroom. That's why I've only seen the first halves before going up there. lol

    Ours is a Samsung, but similar age, maybe 6 or 7 years... can't get Disney+ on it either, have to use my PS4 for that. I know I could use my PS4 for Amazon Prime if I wanted to get my wife's login info, but I just don't care enough about TNF to bother. (might do it for the LOTR series though)

    Same thing for the Bruins on Hulu... I think I technically have Hulu through my Disney package, but I don't care enough to watch a regular season weeknight Bruins game to bother setting it up.

    My stream has been great for the Thursday night games through my fire stick.  I've always found that streaming directly through the Smart TVs without any device doesn't work very well....spending the $30-40 for a fire stick for each TV is well worth and the stream quality is great.  I also have youtube TV so I need some sort of device on every TV anyways...

    He's fun and gives the media good sound bites making their jobs easier. They love coaches like that.

    Because people are stupid.  We have the best pictures in tv’s today and the younger generations watch on lap tops, phones or stream through the tv which lessen the picture quality.  It doesn’t make sense.  But hey they pay for ten different streaming services instead of paying Comcast so it makes them feel good about themselves

    I'm old, also, but streaming services have very positively impacted TV, imo.  Networks were boring and lazy.
    I only keep Comcast for sports and local news but I know I can get without it but my wife won't support cutting the cord.

    Content yes picture quality not so much.  Don’t even get me started on I can’t change the channel easily when streaming

    Channel changing, you have an absolute point. 

     Maybe I am lucky, our streaming is good.  Actually the cable boxes have as many or more issues.
