It should be a 5:00 start at the latest.

It's just better for television and building that "National Audience" that the league desires. The western teams will never build a national following if nobody can ever watch them.
Yep- it's always been a pet peeve of mine- even with our home games, why not start Saturday games at 6:00?? What reason is there to wait until 7 or 7:30 as some teams do?? I'll bet the overwhelming majority of fans would prefer 6:00 or even 5:00...
