Fox definitely has better commentators for their games, though. I don't mind the cross flex with broadcast stations, because I can't always pick up the FOX station that my beloved Redskins play on, but usually when CBS is televising their games, I will get them each and every time.
CBS aired NFC games from 1970 until 1994 when Foxed picked up the rights. CBS would not air another NFL game until 1998 when they picked up the AFC package from NBC.

That doesn't sound much. It seems that you don't care much about watching games on CBS or Fox.

What it mean by "what that's not much" it means that you don't seem to care about watching games on Fox or CBS. That's what I meant by that's not much. And to be honest here, since you also seem to care less about the commercials, the NFL is making money when they do commercials though they should limit the amount of commercials per break.For example, when a Fox game is on commercial break, I generally flip it over to CBS during that time and vice versa, but during Packer games, I switch to CBS for a short time (unless a Packer game is on CBS) and then after a few minutes I switch it back to Fox. With that said...
