    Has anyone else noticed the poor quality of the feed on Fox hd for the ALCS. I get the LA Fox hd feed and the out of focus areas seem to have a mosaic effect going
    on. The TBS feed of the NLCS was so good it was spooky. Maybe I'm just seeing the difference between MPEG4 and MPEG2. Or maybe it's just that the Rockies make any picture look good.:D

    The closeups of the pitchers with the home plate camera were just horrendous. It sometimes looked like they had gone to slow motion.

    Had nothing to do with MPEG2. The PQ was bad on our MPEG4 local via DirecTV as well as OTA. Just a poor quality broadcast by FOX.

    I wish NESN could broadcast too. I hate FOX network. Especially Joe Buck. He never has anything good to say about the Sox.

    It was horrible. They need to take lessons from TBS!!! TBS had some of the best looking HD I have ever seen!

    Last year's Fox broadcasts on the World Series were spectacular. This year, not as good. In fact, game 5 of the ALCS looked bad. Grainy and broken up at times.

    No question, whatever Ted is doing he is doing it right. If the whole world series
    looks this bad I may have to spring for a ticket. With TBS it was as good as being there.

    Agreed. The PQ on TBS was 1000% better than Fox.

    The games in CLE looked particularly horrible. But the games played in BOS actually had decent picture quality, IMO. Anybody else notice this?

    I also noticed the PQ was awful on FOX. In some instances it was so bad it was almost like watching analog cable.

    And why would he have anything to say about those smug, arrogant a-holes?

    I have decided to pull for the Tribe--the TRUE class A.L. team in this race!

    Huh? Not sure I totally get that. I realize I am biased, but what exactly have the Sox done to deserve to be called "smug, arrogant, a-holes"? Please don't inlcude Manny in your answer. Children can't smug, or arrogant. ;)

    I've always liked the Red Sox, but after last night's BS, I'm more comfortable rooting for the Tribe. If the Indians make it to the Series, I'll be hard-pressed to root for either team, because having both the Rockies and Indians in the Series would be the best, and would be great for Baseball. If the Red Sox make it there, I'm going for Colorado hands down.

    What did the Sox do last night? How about Kenny Lofton's little tantrum? That's your definition of class?!?!?

    Beckett has a history with Lofton. Ramirez is a dick. He also doesn't give a rat's patootie about the fans, as evidenced by his asinine comments the other day about not caring if they win or not--pampered baby.

    it is the worst live sport event in recent memory.
    TBS has raised the bar on PQ it is simply amazing, and the way all live sports should look.
