Right. But the vast majority of American sporting events take place on nights and weekends, when everyone is available to watch the games.
The most important soccer games take place during the day and often during the work week when everyone is at work and school, so they have to watch recorded matches.
I'm sure Chicken would appreciate us all vanishing from here during the day for most of the year.
So I have to ask, why the exception on the SB?
time difference means a lot of people DVR games to watch in their free time. They would like to be able to peruse the SB without having results spoiled.
most US games are in prime time. It's a good rule for that gay euro league stuff but it's dumb for US matches.
