Hey Network! Got NFL?

Can someone please explain to me the purpose of the NFL Network when every time I click it during the preseason they are showing "Football Follies" reruns? Does anyone else remember the advertising for full preseason coverage, tape delayed broadcasts of preseason games, "Call your cable service provider NOW!"?

Seriously. This is getting ridiculous. What if every time you turned on the Food Network, you got nothing but top 100 lists of commercials in the vein of "Where's the Beef?" and "Mickey Likes Life"? What if every time you turned to the Discovery Channel... Oh, never mind. I almost forgot about "We jumped the shark week." Poor (or perhaps perfect) analogy.

What's worse, is that with typically convoluted NFL broadcast politics, I don't know who to blame. Goodell? Maybe DeMaurice Smith and the Player's Association are conspiring to black out my research of the top sleeper wide receiver vs. third string secondary highlights? Too bad Arlen Specter is out of office. He might have called a Congressional hearing to address my concern.

What I do know, is that I haven't felt this ripped off since The Planet of the Apes remake. Damn you! Damn you all to Hell, NFL Network!
