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?
