Episode 469 of "SI Media with Jimmy Traina" features an interview with NFL VP of Broadcast Planning, Mike North
North explains how a game getting flexed happens, why the NFL would want to flex a game and what goes into flexing a game. North also discusses whether he thinks any games will be flexed this season, what the league thinks of having three Patriots games left in prime time, how the Aaron Rodgers and Joe Burrow injuries have impacted the prime-schedule, whether the league would ever consider only scheduling the first half of the season and then program times and networks after during the second half.
North also reveals if the NFL has ever considered removing the Lions from Thanksgiving, what the league is looking for from it's first-ever Black Friday game on Amazon Prime and why the league is happy to have Taylor Swift as a fan.
Following North, Sal Licata from WFAN Radio and SNY TV in New York joins Jimmy for their weekly "Traina Thoughts" segment. This week, Jimmy and Sal discuss Thanksgiving food, the Thanksgiving NFL games and much more
