Why is Fox Southwest showing a rerun of an MLS game instead of the Carolina-Green Bay game, or any one of the many NFL games Fox has the rights to, for that matter?

WHYYYYYYYYYYY?

PS: For the two MLS fans who will post something silly about the soccer game, go back to watching the game instead of playing on the internet so you can double number of people actually watching a televised MLS game.

Wonder if there's a blackout rule in play? No idea here, just guessing.

Well the world balances out, because I just tried to tune in to a Premier League game on my local Fox Sports station and got the awful, useless, horrible Steeler post-game show instead. You know, where dumb ex-jocks ask dumb current jocks probing questions like, "Wow, you guys played real well today, didn't ya?" and "Wow, you just, like, stopped their offense all day, didn't ya?!"

Not on Fox Sports Southwest. This Texas, brother--football, the American kind, is the state religion.

It probably has something to do with the funky rules they use to broadcast NFL games, listed here:

While here in Sweden the usal early sunday evening football was canceled as the European Championships in Basketball had there final game (Between Spain - France. Parker and Noah did not do well for France and Spain run away with the win) instead they started later, but the diffrence between a game that ends around 22.00 local time and one that will end at 01 is rather big when you have to get up to go to work the next morning)
