    Thumbs Down KMSS opts for Cowboys over Saints

    New Orleans Saints fans will have to find another way to watch their undefeated team play on Sunday as KMSS opts to show the Dallas Cowboys game instead.



    Both the Saints and the Cowboys are scheduled to play at 3:15 p.m. on Sunday. The Saints are playing at the Miami Dolphins and the Cowboys are hosting the Atlanta Falcons. Both games are televised by FOX.


    KMSS will show the the Cowboys game as the second half of a doubleheader with Minnesota at Pittsburgh being the first game.


    The Saints game can be seen on DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket package.

    Who can I call to complain. I know this has been a long term issue and the 2 nd time this year, but I refuse to do nothing. I want them to know I'm pissed.

    Solution, Move to Ruston or Monroe and you don't have to worry about it.

    Shreveport is so screwed-up in certain areas.

    I bet there are more people in the area wanting to watch the Cowboys game.

    It is, but the thing that sucks about Shreveport is that it is MUCH closer to Dallas than New Orleans so the fanbase is split 50/50 with Saints/Cowboys.

    And the TV stations broadcast to a lot of East Texas.

    Not sad at all. Geography. They aren't the Louisiana Saints, they are the New Orleans Saints. The Cowboys aren't the Texas Cowboys, they are the Dallas (err, Arlington) Cowboys. Shreveport is closer to Dallas than New Orleans in distance and culture. What's the problem?

    This always baffles me. People from south la like to say north la might as well be east tx, yet when it comes to the saints we are all supposed to be one. And the saints cowboys 50/50 split is only when the saints are winning, just like any nfl team. All things being equal, I bet there are more cowboys fans than saints fans in s'port. Kmss just picks the lesser of two evils. No matter what game they show they are going to be flooded with complaints from the other teams fans, so they must get less complaints with saints fans.

    I root for both teams, but I think they messed up big time with this decision. There is much more interest in the Saints right now.

    What's the problem? The Cowboys are America's Team! Right Dwayne?

    I don't really have a dog in this hunt, but regarding culture...is it more like Dallas?

    Does Dallas have mardi gras parades? Cajun festivals? And what about the hockey team? "Mudbugs" doesn't exactly bring to mind the Lone Star state...

    Shreveport just goes with winners (ie LSU and Cowboys). Saints and Tech have not won anything of substance in Shreveport's eyes; therefore, many people dont care. It has nothing to do with culture.

    Also, the Cowboys were there for a long time before the Saints were even created, so you have a lot of people that grew up Cowboys fans because the Saints were not a team yet, and this got passed to their kids.

    The big difference is that we all pay for the Saints to stay in New Orleans so yea we got a bigger stake in the Saints than Cowboys fans do. Coming from a die hard Saints fan i could care less about Shreveport airing the cowboys games, they have always done it. I know I would be pissed if Monroe started airing Cowboys games over the Saints just because they have a better record.
