Vanity: tough to watch the NFL because of NBC
9/15/2012 | chief jay strongbow

Posted on 09/05/2012 7:37:45 PM PDT by ChiefJayStrongbow

Watching the game with my 11 yr old son. Within a span of twenty minutes, NBC shows ads for two incedibly gay tv shows (?new normal? and some other gayer than hell show).

So I decide I will flip away during the commercials.

Halftime comes on and they do a 'news' segment on the DNC convention. Dick Gregory (I think that's his name) was gushing about bill clinton's star power ... he must have nearly soiled himself ... appeared to be experiencing a chrissy mathews style tingle.

Makes it tough to enjoy the game.

You must have heard me screaming at David Gregory to get off my television.

I noticed Clinton on, but I had the main TV on mute while also watching the Rangers-Royals on the laptop TV.

Just watch the game and ignore the fools. Especially “the new abnormal” sick SOB’s.

The worst NFL is better than the best of all other sports.

The ‘boys seem to have found their footing.

I'm surprised Barry wasn't asked for his Super Bowl prediction at halftime. He could have done a full bracket similar to college basketball.

My wife’s solution is simply mute the tv anytime the game isn’t on.

I’ve got the Dbacks vs. Giants on. No DemocRAT freak show stuff going on here either.

I’m recording the game and plan to FF through all the commercials and crap. Now I’m off to block myself off from all media so the game will still be new to me.

Do like I do. Mute the game, listen to it on Cowboys radio and flip to the Rangers in between. No stupid nutcases.

We only watch the occasional football game on the tarded nothing but crap channel. We no longer watch the weather channel either.

What did the weather channel do? Celebrate gay pride every time there’s a rainbow?

Peyton's short interview was great, and then I switched to HSN as soon as I saw Bill's face.

ALWAYS remember nbc is another arm of the DNC and current WH.

They had a plug for their new show “The New Normal” during the game which is about a male couple and their surrogate mom starring foul-mouthed hater of Pro-Lifers and conservatives Ellen Barkin.

You don’t know the half of it. I work in Hollywood and every one I know who is conservative, right wing or even moderate left NBC U for obvious reasons.

I personally even knew 2 “persons” ( to protect against lib trolls) who couldn’t stand the liberal crap they had to endure when it comes to TV development. They both head to Paramount and they enjoy the environment. Let’s put it this way..it was not coincidence that Iron Man was green lit.

I’m not sure what is more stomach turning; “new normal”, “male couple”, “surrogate mom”, or “ellen barkin”...

Yep, too much “Do this in these kind of weather events”. Stuff anyone would know naturally if raised and taught right.

I felt the same way.

Luckily I’m a JETS fan so I was able to send a message to NFL and turn it off period.

Associate with losers and lose fans. Simple

I’m a fan of the pickup and I think he is going to really add positives in the run and special teams game for us.

I know what he can do, he burned us last year and I was thinking, MAN we could really use some of that.

The guy is America in physical manifestation- he just gets it done.

I cannot stand how they’re pushing gay propaganda. And I say this as a person who cries every time I watch Brokeback Mountain. But that is a movie, not a prime time t.v. show, which many children may see.

“The New Normal”? I think not. Not for most of America. I have no antipathy towards gay people, but I don’t like the agenda pushed upon the rest of us, particularly our children.

If the Nationals advance in the playoffs and eventually go to the 2012 World Series, Barry will be the newest fan and his mug will be all over the games.

I Agree! This really makes me angry. We can’t even watch sports any more without having to watch perverted previews for their sick shows. Sometimes muting isn’t enough, because what they show is terrible, too. There must be some way to get rid of these. Fox is just as bad as the rest.
