Saints fans, let's boycott Fox TV in Houston

I'm a longtime Saints fan living in the Houston area, and I'm sick of Fox not showing the Saints games locally. They ignore the local Saints fan base here, which is significant, and seem to be stuck in a Cowboys-related rut. This week they're scheduled to show the Giants-Bengals, which is a ridiculous decision that we shouldn't stand for. I can understand them showing the Cowboys, but the Saints should be the next choice. Let's let them know what we think and boycott their station until they start showing the Saints when they have the chance. Here's what I sent them today...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know who makes your decisions on which NFL games to broadcast, but I plan to boycott your station as a result of repeated failure to show the Saints despite a significant local following in Houston. Look around you, there are as many Saints bumper stickers as Texans, and far more than the Cowboys.

This Sunday the guide lists you as showing the Giants and Bengals instead of the Saints and Falcons. REALLY? The Falcons are the only undefeated team in the league, and this is one of the best rivalries in football. What does the Giants-Bengals possibly offer? The only explanation I can come up with is that your staff is stuck in the 90's when the Cowboys were the default home team in Houston. You enjoy the past, and I'll enjoy the Saints game on the internet.

Goodbye. I'll keep an eye your future choices and decide if I'm going to allow your station in my house again.
