exactly. these guy are not getting to an airport 2-3 hours before the flight, standing in line for security, running to catch a connection, parking 5 miles away and hoping the shuttle comes quickly, sitting in a cramped uncomfortable seat for 2 or 3 hours.

The time zones are all about tv revenues. Teams like Dallas are saying their local tv contract gets hurt because the ratings aren't as high for road games that start at 9/9:30 locally.
