New York Jets Games to be Aired Out of Town via ESPN Radio


I know that many of you readers and Jet Pressers are from outside of the New York area. Not all of us are lucky enough the a stone’s throw from MetLife stadium. I am sure that many of you that encounter this problem also have a satellite dish, which makes watching the game quite easy.

But what happens if the weather isn’t looking too promising. Dishes go out, at times more easily than cable lines. A little bit of wind, for example and you are picking up your tree from other side of street. This is all that Mother Nature needs to take out the most important sections off a Jets game? So what are we do do>

We take a look at this announcement that was released yesterday by ESPN, and relate it with great anticipation.  ESPN radio has announced that they will cover out-of-town Jets’ games.  Take a look:

ESPN Radio will air out-of-market broadcasts for Dolphins, Giants, Jets, Patriots and Steelers games starting this season. ESPN said Tuesday that it had signed individual agreements with each club for Sunday afternoon games. The teams’ games will continue to be broadcast on their official local stations in their home markets.

Like I said before, this is great news for all of you guys that can’t get the team’s games out-of-town. Life takes us a long distance away from our teams, and anyway to make following them easier is a must.

Heck, it’s certainly a better decision than the one that forced the draft into May for next year, isn’t it?

    don’t expect to be able to depend on the espn smart-phone app. it is as useful as dick cimini or espn itself. it will give you the pregame with greg buttle, which, of course, is excellent. the app itself is unreliable. it crashes more often than it provides a consistent stream (imagine that, another exclusive from the worldwide leader in sports!) and once it crashes during the game the game is not usually available to be picked back up. espn ny mysteriously but regularly disappears from the list of stations offered by the app. the best you can do is listen to deportes in spanglish, where most of the key words that any american who learns spanish as a second language would want to learn, are instead shouted in english using a spanish pronunciation, like ‘foombul!. another espn exclusive. truth, justice and the american way!

      This is why I stay home for most of football season. so I don’t have to miss anything and rely on ESPN lol.

        i can’t even tell you how many times last year i got out of my car listening on my phone, had the stream drop and was unable to listen until i returned to my car. relying on the espn app is kinda like using a condom after its expiration date. it’s just something you really, really hate to have to use.

          YOu see I took the article to mean it was talking about other ESPN radio stations out of town, and not the app as much…am I crazy?

          • matr dontelli iii

            i’m not sure what the article meant and given that it was espn i doubt they know either. someone will have to break an exclusive before they know. maybe stephen and skip can debate it, or maybe benedict mike can say how much he loves it before deciding he hates it. maybe joe can try to kiss it. my only point was that the app approaches uselessness and people who have not yet been frustrated by trying to listen to a game on it shouldn’t prepare for a game with the idea that espn has this ‘other method of world wide leadership.’ they don’t. it fails more often than not. now that i think about it, where else are they gonna offer a dolphin or patriot game when the jets are playing? they simulcast the game in spanglish on deportes. they don’t have another ny station i hope. it would have to be for their smart phone app. another exclusive. truth, justice and the american way!

            Come to think of it, you are probably right on the money my friend. Well, at least they are trying?

  • matr dontelli iii

    If they were really trying they’d fix the app. They’re just trying in the sense of acquiring more things they broadcast poorly. Kinda like having a closet full of jerseys that you bought when you weighed seventy pounds less. You can’t wear them but you can still show them to people. Truth, justice and the American way!

    • TheJetPress

      I love the analogy…..I don’t think I can really tell how you feel about espn though…lol

        Remember I try to keep it g-rated. I’ll try to make my feelings more clear in the future :)
