NBCSN Bumps Newcastle United Again, This Time In Favor of Cardiff vs Everton

fraizer campbell NBCSN Bumps Newcastle United Again, This Time In Favor of Cardiff vs Everton

For the second week in a row, Newcastle United has been bumped from NBC’s 10am Saturday featured Premier League match on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN). Last week, it was the dire 0-0 draw against West Ham United. This Saturday, Newcastle’s clash against Fulham has been moved to Premier League Extra Time. In its place this week will be the match between Cardiff City and Everton.

While Newcastle United supporters may be disappointed, it’s good news for neutral supporters or fans of Cardiff (are there any out there?) and Everton. The atmosphere at Cardiff City’s stadium on Sunday for the match against Manchester City was incredible compared to the noise at St James’ Park that sounded more like a funeral home (sorry Newcastle supporters). Plus, there’s the American angle of Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

What’s your opinion? Is NBC Sports Network making the correct decision in showing Cardiff-Everton instead of Newcastle-Fulham in that 10am ET NBCSN timeslot? Have your say in the comments section below.
