    Okay so I know the name of the game is to make money but why in God's name is OLN putting on commericals for ESPN Sunday Night Football??? I suppose it doens't affect their NHL contract, what with the hockey games being on Mon. and Tues. but it's basically the same thing as Fox Sports advertising Sportscenter or something. It's almost like saying "hey you have other options on other networks, aside from hockey on our station," as if anyone needs reminded.

    Those are likely locally sponsored ads placed by the cable company.

    You'll probably have a tag that mentions a local car dealer or mortgage company.

    If you're living in the Pittsburgh market, you'll notice the ads were for the Steelers/Browns game, advertised during the Pens game.

    Plain and simple, it's Comcast, trying to maximize exposure for its cable advertising.

    No more, no less. The true national feed would not have played those commercials.

    Wow! Funny how in the Philadelphia market there was an Add for the Eagles! Who would have thought that a national broadcast wouldn't also include air time for regional commercials? I mean, its not as if people in different parts of the country get to watch different adds depending on their market now, is it?
