NBC Saturday/Sunday games? General complaint is that they feature the same teams too often. Now granted Detroit being one of those teams that people complain is getting featured too often, however Detroit is about the only Western Conference team that NBC uses. With Chicago's recent return to glory they've started to be featured a bit more; but that is really about it as far as the networks are concerned for teams in the West.
The teams pacific teams are viable options for weekend day games on NBC.
