    I always enjoyed the night games. The kids were asleep, the wife went upstairs to the bedroom to watch tv and I had downstairs all to myself to enjoy the game. It was great, had my snacks and beverages and I was set. I though we might still get one Monday night game in Dec like always. Oh well, we will have to just kick some you know what to get the respect back and the games on at night in 2006. By the way, we do have 1 game at night. The Hall of Fame game will have to do for this year.

    Me and my dad had to be quiet during night games with the rest of the family sleeping. Now we can be loud during all the games!

    I don't mind "No Night Game" at all, especially at home. I hate having to get up for work the next day after getting home at 2:00 AM. Sunday PM's are GREAT! I know it sucks for those of you in other states that don;t have "The Ticket".

    well for me it gives me another reason to get to work a little late....considering everyone at work is a dol-fan....but honestly....the night games get to showcase how beautiful miami is at night....at least we still have the heat for the playoffs and hopefully finals

    The NFL Network reported that the Dolphins will be playing the toughest schedule amongst the 32 teams in the league. The Dolphins did not receive a prime time slot on Sunday or Monday Night Football for the first time since 1969..

    I have no problem with this at all. I always find it frustrating to wait to watch the Phins at 8 on Sundays and especially to wait to watch them on MNF games.

    It will be nice to be able to watch them every Sunday.

    Not a fair comparison. The NFC had a lot of teams with records almost as bad as that make the play-offs last year.

    I want you guys to remember why people think that we have the "toughest" sch.


    The other 3 teams in the divsion had great records last year and we play them twice a year


    We was 4-12


    They went by the records of last year


    So really we DONT have the toughest sch, but on paper it looks like that we do. So dont worry about our sch, we will show them all that it is our time to shine.

    No Prime Time Slot????

    Wow, this is udder disgrace!! For the first time since 1969, Miami will not have a prime time slot the entire season. Shows you that if you have a bad season, forget about coming back to prime time. I would have thought with the new head coach and coaching staff that some spotlight would be given to the Phins. :shakeno:

    ONE Monday Night Game for Fins

    In all my years a DOLFAN i dont ever remember them not having a regular season Monday Night Game. All we have is the Monday Night HOF game against the Bears and thats all due to Marino being inducted that same weekend. ABC/ESPN is ******ED because the last 5 years the Fins were not the greatest team in the land, but we gave the American public some great PRIMETIME GAMES, probably better than any other team the last five years. How about the Monday Nighter against the Jets, The sunday nighter against the Broncos, and lets not forget the Monday nighter against the PATRIOTS. Monday night games SUCK because they are all usually blowouts but atleast the Fins put on a good show.

    Can anyone think of a better PRIMETIME team than the Dolphins???

    Boy did we get hosed

    Every team in the NFL has at least 1 prime timegameexcept for the Fins. Even the 49ers play on prime time. Even though they have to go to Mexico to do it. Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago All primetime. Tho wants to watch those teams play. This is another shot at the Fins by the NFL. Guess we'll just have to kick some tail this year to prove them wrong.

    Miami should of gotten a primetime game sometime early in the season. If you want to be technical they don't deserve a game but to me, the Dolphins franchise should always be represented on Monday Night Football at least once a year!

    I love the homerism but when you go 4-12 the previous year you dont deserve primetime. Why should our team be any different then any other NFL team each year?

    We may not have a primetime game, but at least we have a nationally televised game when we play the Titans on Saturday, Dec. 24. It would be a disgrace if we didn't have any nationally televised games all season.

    I know we didn't deserve one, but I kind of thought that we may get one with NE based on the Saban BB relationship and the game last year.

    There are some really crappy prime time games this year, especially on ESPN
    San Francisco at Arizona!, Cincinnati at Jacksonville, Houston at Seattle, Tennessee at Arizona!, Kansas City at Houston just to name a few. How does KC get 4 prime time game, Houston gets 2 Az gets a couple and we dont get 1! I didnt expect a Monday nighter really, just a Pats v Dolphins Sunday nighter would have been nice.

    There are 13 games on that Saturday, what makes you think that our game will be nationally televised?

    Point taken. Although I think, as you pointed out, that it is in Mexico makes the diff here.

    Yeah, and like who else cares except Dolphans and maybe some NE fans. Homerism at its finest. Works for me, but we are not deserving. Live with it, get direct TV and move on.

    How ironic that we play Tennessee two years in a row at home on a Saturday afternoon?
