    In a move that reflects the nature of the Washington Redskins' season, WVBT Fox 43 had decided not to air Sunday's scheduled 4:15 p.m. game between the Redskins and San Diego Chargers and instead televise the crucial NFC East clash between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys, making it the first time in memory that the Redskins have been pre-empted on TV in Hampton Roads. Bruce Rader, sports director at Fox 43, said he suggested the change when Fox switched the Eagles-Cowboys game from 1 p.m. to 4:15. "Honestly," he said, "the Redskins are just unwatchable." Rader went on to say how he was inundated with e-mails after the decision but only five of them objected to the move.

    Hampton Roads is full of ghetto butt bandwagon Cowboy fans anyways. Works out to their advantage for once in the season.

    Hampton roads? That place is just outside the NC border, no where near DC. I doubt any redneck in that town has ever even been to a Redskins game.

    All the emails the guy recd were requesting the games be replaced by reruns of HeeHaw.

    That is ridiculous i would be pissed off if i was a fan. In 05 i still watched all the eagle games when we went 6-10 and watching mike mcmahon was like watching a train wreck.

    Last time we beat anyone? I don't have to pull up Santana roasting you all in 2005 do I? I mean you certainly didn't become a Giants fan after 2007 did you, I'm sure you know what our WR's did that year.

    Wrong thread...

  19. I found those pics hilarious. Don't get your panties in a bunch little man. I've been a Giant fan longer than you've been alive.

    Your team is in a far worse situation right now. We may have slumped since starting 5-0, but at least we haven't been called "unwatchable" and had our game pulled from our local affiliate.
