    You'd think it was Dan Carpenter, or the lack of a secondary, but no, it was none other than the 'fabulous' DirecTV Sunday Ticket.

    After two weeks of living through gamecenter and espn clips, I finally decided to pony up the 59.99/month for DirecTV Sunday Ticket Max so that I could watch my beloved fins online while I'm at work. I didn't even heckle the company for a deal, because heck, if I get to watch our games at work what could be better?
    And all was mostly good, a live, mostly HD feed. That is until the coinflip in overtime.
    Ref: "Gentlemen, we have a ~~~~~"
    and cut. Freeze. Game feed gone, and not to return throughout the entirety of overtime except for a brief few seconds after Carp missed his kick. Other than that, just loading loading loading or "stream not available". No, it wasn't my internet (as I was relegated to watching the nfl.com gamecast feed and griping in the gameday thread while constantly loading and refreshing and everything I can think of to fix the feed).

    If anyone was debating shelling out he 60 dollars a month for directv max to watch online, I highly advise against it. Consider this a negative review.

    Mods, I realize everyone is agitated right now, and there will likely be a lot of deleted threads, so do what you must, but to me this is Dolphins related, this was my sunday, and deprived me of the chance to watch MY team play in overtime against our greatest rival, which is unforgivable.

    LOL @ paying to watch football. Kidding. Streams are good enough for me until the Dolphins are competitive enough to warrant that much.

    I don't care how bad this team is, I'll never consider a bull**** feed that can be shut off at any moment an acceptable way to watch football.

    One thing I give DTV credit for is they are pretty good at making you "whole" when they screw up. Call them and complain if you haven't already. Ask to be transferred to either the retention or cancellation department. They'll probably take a good chunk off your bill at the very least and maybe some free channels for awhile.

    happened to me too while watching that game, so it was definitely on their end. remember if that happens, go to firstrowsports.eu and you can watch any of them.

    Oh, you missed the OT meltdown? Please tell me more how directtv prevented you from enjoying the Dolphin game.

    I was watching it on the Sunday Ticket on the PS3 and it froze on me too during the coin flip in OT. Was not a happy camper.

    I guess this is sarcasm but nothing is more frustrating than watching your team blow it with little blips going across a screen when you know you've paid for the privilege of seeing them do it live. For instance, I didn't even know we blocked their first attempt at the end bcall I saw was "timeout"
