But the dark side has cookies!
Totally agree. I go to over 80 minor league baseball games a year and typically enjoy it much more than major league.
However, watching minor league baseball on TV is painful.
I agree fully. Multi billionaires sucking $$$$$$ from people..
Why is it great in the stadium. But sucks on tv? Im wandering that since theres no mlb team in Salt lake city. But theres a minor league team
Generally speaking, the technical side isn't very good, and the on air talent isn't very talented.
Sports are not a necessity... people can continue to live full lives without watching sports.
While I admittedly watched a few minutes of yesterday's Lakers/Clippers game, I do not follow sports, so I can state the above as truth.
Get people to stop spending money on sports, and you will no doubt see these athletes' paychecks go down in size. Until then, for so long as sports are not a necessity, I see nothing wrong with these athletes getting their fair share of the pie.
I've never been to an MLB game... I did go to an Albany Polecats game years ago though...
To your point sure you don't like sports but hey I'd give up EVERY news channel if I could get more sports.
I'd rather watch sports every day than turn to MSNBC CNN or FOXNEWS but low and behold I have to pay for them so you can see them.
As studechip said, the production stinks but also the atmosphere is not captured. Minor league baseball is up close and personal and comfortable with silly on field things. They can't capture the feeling.
It helps that for 70 games in Bowie (AA), I sit close enough to talk to the players on deck
Admittedly, I haven't gone to a minor league baseball game. I have gone to see our local ECHL team. Being in the arena, with the energy, the tornado siren going off, the mascot going for a "world record" head slide, nothing bets it. Plus we have a very good team.
They certainly don't rake n the bucks, the weekly salary cap is $12,400 for the team. They still play for the love of the game and the dream of the majors.
Having said that, I'd still like the ability to see the local team in HD on TV. I'm still hoping for Fox Sports Cincinnati full time, though don't think this would be added to the lineup.
Is Bloomberg HD still in test?
D10 3 FT 353 *BTVHD 1020
I doubt I'll hardly ever watch Bloomberg but I look forward to adding it to my favorites just because channels with HD graphics look awesome.:lol:
I know a really FWIW here;
But anyhow, agreement to carry DOG TV formalized on DIRECTV.
Oh brother, and does it matter if it will be in HD or not? ....
Heck, it will probably be in black and white.
They got to be kidding!
Can't wait for the first big push for it in HD.
For $6/month it better be in HD.
Be aware, it only really works visually for dogs if you have a plasma TV or a LCD/LED with 120Hz refresh rate. Older CRTs, DLPs, LCDs with 60Hz refresh rate bothers dogs since they can see the flickering (their eyes process signals around 100Hz).
Guess if DirecTV is going to carry this channel they better make sure to keep the PowerSave feature as an option you can turn off. Those doggies might get upset when the TV turns off after a few hours of them not pressing a button on the remote:lol:
