I think it’s funny that people are complaining that the best teams in the NFL are being shown on American Forces Network. I hate to break it to them, but I think they’ve been gone from the U.S. far too long.

For the most part, the games that are being shown are the ones that the networks stateside consider the games of the week. If you were in a stateside location that doesn’t have a local team, odds are these are the games you’d be getting.

Maybe if the teams mentioned previously (such as the Detroit Lions or Cleveland Browns) weren’t so terrible, they’d be shown, too. The people who should be getting the letters are the owners of the teams that aren’t being shown. If they had a competitive product, maybe their games would be shown.
