More request for more Night games you are grounded from watching Packers & College Football games in 2024 you are very,very,very disrespectful & selfish person SHAME ON YOU Z-MAN.

Again & Again for being very hard on you disregard May 31 2024 at 6:20PM you can still watch Packers & College Football games in 2024.

Only thing I wish for you Z-Mam to be more open minded person & please do not expect everybody to like Night Football games & did you read my post that I do not agree that Night Football games are better than Day.

‪Suprised they don’t have a game Thanksgiving Night at all. I Thought they may do Texas vs. A&M on Black Friday Night. Would be huge having that game unopposed. Texas played last year on Black Friday Night.‬

I want ABC to start airing the Lone Star Showdown every Thanksgiving night as the headliner of a CFB tripleheader on the holiday, after an American game at noon followed by an ACC game at 3:30.

There needs to be more CFB games on the actual Thanksgiving holiday now that the NFL has intruded on Black Friday.

Z-Man More Football Fans would rather watch NFL over CFB on Thanksgiving & You are biggest blunder on this Earth & you are very,very,very mixed up Individual.

Also Z-Man Your beloved Cheeseheads are playing host in Fish (Dolphins) on Thanksgiving evening on NBC.

Z-Man NFL have business to play on Black Friday & you have no control over it & I have zero issues with NFL playing on Black Friday.

Do not be concerned about it they will play on Saturday.

At least My Georgia Bulldogs play host Georgia Tech on Black Friday they rank in top four CFB games that I like that is being played on Thanksgiving weekend along with Arizona State-Arizona & hope you do not mind Me being a Big Ten Fan with Michigan-Ohio State & My Hometown Chicagoland & Home State Illinois

Georgia Bulldogs is My favorite SEC Athletic Team & I am slightly Curious Terrence who is your favorite SEC Team please take your time to answer.
