Maybe you didn't happen to catch this from NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue in a story by The Sun's Ken Murray that ran last week. Asked about the league's move to put regular-season games on the NFL Network, Tagliabue said: "I do think it gives us the ability to have greater control over how we present our game and what we present about our game, about our players and coaches." Are you sensing a lot of negativity out there in current network coverage of NFL games? That quote sent a chill down my spine.
