NFL Shifts Times For Doubleheaders: Good or Bad Move?

The NFL announced today that they are shifting the times of the second game of doubleheaders (on CBS and Fox) from 4:15 pm to 4:25 pm.  This change came after extensive studies between the 2009-2011 seasons of when stations have mandatory switchovers to the second game while the first game is still finishing up.  That happened 44 times during that time period.  The studies concluded that if the second game started at 4:25 pm, then only 15 games would have had interrupted broadcast on television.

I for one am hot on this topic.  Being a fan of the Steelers and the NFL in general, networks appear to toy with your emotions on Sundays marketed as doubleheaders – especially when the Steelers are involved.  And although usually I find the problem to actually be that the network doesn’t switch over fast enough (usually when Green Bay is playing on Fox and the Steelers follow them), I still think is a helpful change for must of us stuck on our duffs in our living rooms or on bar stools.  Now if the NFL can find a way for a mandatory cut to cute kittens whenever Shannon Sharpe opens up his mouth over on CBS……

What are your thoughts on the new time change?
