1pm. No hype. Sometimes I can sleep until 12, so that is even less waiting.

1pm

I used to love sleeping late and waking up just to watch them play. Even though I don't have the time to do it anymore it was the best.

Agreed, also, late in the season, we know who did what in our division by the time the game starts, so we know what's on the line.

Anything but 1pm. The time difference is hell, otherwise.

I like 4:15 "Home" games easier to get ready for the tailgate.

1pm no question. 4:15 my wife ends up cooking dinner right in the middle of the game, it just screws everything up. Night games kill me. I hate staying up late anymore (I'm getting old). Not to mention when I stay up and we lose I get so furious that I can't get any sleep anyway. It makes for 5am Monday or Tuesday morning blow

Home games 1:00, wake up, pack the car and go, no waiting around. Away games, 4:15 or 8:00, later in the day, can go do other things with the family and be back in time for the game.

1 pm no doubt.</P>


4pm - I end up missing half the first quarter because the 1 o'clock games go over.</P>


Night game - I get zero sleep. God forbid we lose thenI get no sleep and I'm pissed off.</P>

1pm games. I usually have nothing going on Sunday, I can sleep til 12 and catch the game and sometimes it's torture waiting all day for a game to start.

8 pm. end the weekend with the Giants, on the biggest stage, it holds the most meaning for me.

1 oclock games for sure. . I love watching the 4pm and the night games but I hate when the Giants are in them and I have to wait.

1:00pm HOME games......up at 6am in our spotby 8:05am with all the other regulars.....it tends to be amateur hour for tailgating at the later games because anyone can get up and get to the stadium by 11am.</P>


4:00pm AWAY games.....the early gamesact as anappetizer forthe main course which isGiants football.....night games lead to too much anxiety especially if they are big games like last year's finale.....almost had a heart attack pre-game in the parking lot.</P>

4pm games for me.

I like being able to watch the 1pm games in the parking lot and, while I DO hit the road by 630am for 1pm games Id rather get up a few hours later.

I wish we played every game at 1PM.

Hate Monday and Sunday Night. Hate if we have to play on a Thursday.

Words from a true Tailgater! I must be a bit closer I leave at 7:15 to get to the gates for the 8 AM Opening.

Home games....up by 7 in the lot by 10:00..and with a little luck home for 2nd half of 4:15 games.

Away games...up by 8..some work around house (makes ya feel less guilty about watchin football for the 10 hrs or so!)

Hate night games....gotta be at work at 6:30 next mornin...not good! Always take day after SB as vacation day....just in case...!!

I love 1pm games, no waiting and no chance of missing part of game due to runover of other games. Asone poster mentioned, late night games kill me as I also have to be up at 5am! Talk about hungover!

If it were up to me, I'd have every single Giants game of the year at 1pm
The only downside is the frequent Sunday hangovers I endure, but I dont care...Sunday is for football

Depends on the match up. Nothing better than a big game being played late in the season with a 4 pm start. Just starts getting cold and dark, perfect for football. Plus, you can watch other games all day happy. 1pm games that they lose ruins watching games the rest of the day for me.

I really prefer 4:15 HOME games. Feels like a primetime night game and the crowd seems to be more amped up and the game is usually more exciting to watch. Almost everybody is awake at that time.

I just don't understand having Sunday night games at 8:30. There's only a handful of people working on weekends AND in the west coast. Instead you have to sacrifice the people in the east coast having to go to sleep early for the next workday. Just a dumb move IMO.

Really prefer it to be 7 or 7:30 - just right after the late afternoon game and don't have to wait another stupid hour and a half for the game.

I love the 1 PM games, I hate with a strong passion the 4 PM games and lately I'm starting to like the night games specially when the Giants are kicking the Cowpies butt.

Exactly.....1pm at home (or for me, 12 noon since I'm out in Chicago).</P>


I have to say getting football at 12 noon in the fall kicks ***.</P>

Sunday night games suck.....maybe it's just my imagination, but the Giants seem to lay more eggs on Sunday nights than any other time slot.</P>


Nothing worse than losing, and then it's almost midnight, and you're got the work on monday morning.</P>


When they play at 1pm, I savor the victory all day. And if they lose, I can usually shake it off before dinner. But Sunday and Monday night losses sting.</P>

When I was stationed at 29 Palms I used to love games at 10 am. I would make my morning chow, hit the MCX and then head back to the barracks. By the 1pm game it was almost time to order pizza.

I prefer the 4:15 pm game here on the East Coast though because it lets me get my running around out of the way or even my grass cut....yeah I procrastinate.

I agree....nothing more exciting than winning on primetime when everyone else is watching it

1:00 by far.

all depends on the last game ... if we lost, then i want to get out there at 1pm</P>


if we won and are having a good season, then i like to play at 4 or at nite or even Monday, b/c i can sit back and watch the other games and enjoy them, whereas, if we lose at 1pm, then i'm kinda disgusted with football for the day</P>

I'm usually busy on Sunday mornings. I like 1:00 pm games because I can get things done afterwards, but I'm usually doing things in the morning.

So 4:15 games. Night games are brutal for me because I have school the next morning and I hate sleeping late. Especially after a big win or loss I'm usually on here and that decreases my sleeping time.
