azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:13 PM) $20 a month gets you ESPN and 15 other channels.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:18 PM) All streamed.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) negative
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:58 PM) I'm a fan of the apple tv though. I just use a clients fios tv account to access the different services like watch espn
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:10 PM) yep need an account

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:15 AM) Now I just need to find a reliable stream for the Jets games.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 02:56 PM) ridley visiting the jets

50 Senators Push Nfl To Change Redskins Name

Fifty Senators send letter pushing NFL to change Redskins name

http://profootballta...-redskins-name/

It’s one thing for a random politician to speak out about the Redskins name or another to muse about the possibility of changing it on a popular national radio and TV show. It’s quite another for 50 members of the United State Senate — FIFTY — to sign a letter to the NFL urging action on the name of the franchise owned by Daniel Snyder.

FIFTY.

Via the New York Times, nearly half of the legislative body wants the name to be changed.

“The NFL can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur,” the letter says. “We urge the NFL to formally support a name change for the Washington football team. . . . We urge you and the National Football League to send the same clear message as the NBA did: that racism and bigotry have no place in professional sports.”

How significant is it that so many Senators signed off on the letter?

“Listen, it is hard to get 50 people in this place to agree on anything,” Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) said.

The issue broke, as so many of these issues do, along party lines; all but five of the Senate’s Democrats signed the letter and no Republicans did. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Mark Pryor of Arkansas abstained.

“The intent of the team’s name has always been to present a strong, positive and respectful image,” the league said in a statement issued to the Times. “The name is not used by the team or the NFL in any other context, though we respect those that view it differently.”

And that’s the heart of the dilemma the NFL currently faces. At some point in the past year, the NFL and the franchise have conceded that reasonable minds may differ on whether the name “Redskins” is a slur. Does the league want one of its teams to carry a name on which a fair debate exists and lingers regarding whether the name represents blatant and open racism?

For the NBA, swift and decisive action was taken in response to comments made privately by Sterling. For the NFL, the problem continues to hide in plain sight.

The best argument in support of change comes from the reality that, if the NFL were forming a team now, there’s no way it ever would be dubbed the “Redskins.” It continues only because of its past. At some point in the future, the present will prevail.


Dan Snyder needs to stop being a pain about this issue and change the name.

Has he given up on trying to bribe the Native-American tribes he visited on his "listening tour"?

It's just a matter of time before that name is finally changed. Now it's only a matter of time before somebody chimes in with that inevitable "shouldn't they be focused on more important things" post.

They could keep the Redskins name, but just change the logo to a sunburned Irishman.

When Goodell runs out of 100$ bills in his bathroom I hope he takes this letter and whipes his ass with it. Politicians need to stay the f*** out of sports.

They will be eventually but Redskin is a derogatory name. Once this battle is won the squeaky wheels will be on the prowl out of boredom.

Hmm perhaps because they are Politicians and should stick to their so called area of expertise (politics). This country is so soft now it makes me sick, maybe we should just rename all teams by color. We can have the blue team, red, yellow, black, white oh wait that'll offend some as well. I realize government is necessary in certain areas of sports, like stadiums, health care ect but I can do away with all the posturing and grandstanding. Funny, the elections are coming up soon, coincidence..? This will be a non topic following November. While the rest of the country is worried about offending people with tattoos, hoodies and team logos I'll be in the other room avoiding the idiots.

The word Chiefs is not exclusive to Native-American culture. The argument can be made that there are tribal chiefs in Africa too for example. Just like with the word "Warriors" is not exclusive to Native-Americans. But even the Kansas City Chiefs have at least changed their logo from a half naked chief running with a tomahawk. To just a arrowhead with the letters K and C in it.

But really if you met a group of Native-American tribal chiefs, what are you going to call them? Chiefs or redskins? I mean if you can't see the difference between those two words then I can't help you.

Oh so it's just because of the elections? Because its not like we were talking about this very issue last year when there was no major national elections that year.

Members Of Congress Urge Redskins To Change Name

No this isn't about "politicians should stick to their so called area of expertise". Whatever the hell that means since it is politicians/elected officials responsibility to address the concerns of ALL its people. Not just the folks who don't feel offended and are tired of political correctness. Because God forbid we take the thoughts and views of other people who we don't know and don't see everyday into consideration. Really why should these tribal organizations and these politicians get involved in this? Keeping a sports team's nickname is MUCH more important than the views of a group of people who were once 100% of the population of this land to now just being 1% of the population. I guess robbing, raping, and murdering their ancestors wasn't enough. Now we have to continue to disrespect them by still having a professional franchise in the year 2014 still called the "Redskins".

Shit, Redskins wasn't even the team's original name. They were called the Braves originally. It was their former owner George Preston Marshall who changed the name from Braves to Redskins. The same George Preston Marshall who BTW was the last NFL owner to integrate his team in the 1960s. And had to be forced to integrate because POLITICIANS in the Kennedy administration used their influence to force him to integrate.

He was the one that said the only reason they're talking about it THIS YEAR was because it's an election year. I just pointed out that this was also a topic of discussion last year. But I'm sure that 1% of Native-American votes these politicians are trying to get is really going to make a big difference on election day. :rolleyes:


I guess one side is pandering to the Native-American vote by trying to get Washington, D.C.'s NFL team to change its name. While the other side is busy talking about presidential birth certificates Obamacare a Hillary/Monica connection Benghazi to motivate their base to get out and vote this year.

The thing I find the most interesting about that P.R. letter, is in the body of the letter they refer to Native-American people as "Native-Americans". Look at the last line of that letter. "We hope you will join us; Native Americans deserve our support." NOT "We hope you will join us; redskins deserve our support."

Olbermann pointed it out on his show. Daniel Snyder and his employees (like Bruce Allen) call the Native-Americans "Native-Americans" and not "redskins". Hmmm, I wonder why? Why doesn't Snyder refer to the Native-Americans he's now trying to buy off as "redskin" or "redskins".

I mean if it's not an offensive word (which he claims it's not), why not call them "redskins" in that letter or when he's talking to the press? I'd love to see Snyder go to these reservations with ESPN cameras and meet the people that live there and call the people he meets there "redskins". Right to their faces in front of the media. Then we'll see how long that name remains after all the backlash. I mean they should be okay with it right? They shouldn't be offended by it.

I think even Snyder knows it's only a matter of time now, considering how much attention this issue has gotten in just the past year. The name will eventually be changed in the next few years. It's inevitable.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.
