No mention of specific markets. I correctly indicated the state of sports programming 30-40 years ag0.
Boston and New York are atypical markets? For sports coverage in that time? Hardly. The same situation existed in Buffalo for the Sabres, St. Louis for the Cards and Blues, Chicago for the Cubs, Atlanta for the Braves (how do you think WTBS got so much exposure when cable came along), Los Angeles, Detroit for the Tigers and Wings and Washington for the Caps and Bullets.
You got caught being stupid again and you're desperately trying to dig your way out. Grow the feck up.
Of course, you leave out the last line of your post,

Free TV carrying all of a teams games prior to 1985? Not around here, Masshole. I hope you miss the entire game tonight.
You then, in your pathological need to try to correct me, cite examples of a whole bunch of places that aren't, in fact, around here.

You really are butthurt, aren't you little girl? You aren't even old enough to know for sure how many Cavs, Indians and Barons games were on free TV in the '70s. Can you prove to me that Cleveland was an exception to the statement I made?

I called you out on your childish trolling and then you got all pissy about it. You really should start taking responsibility for your own actions here, kid.

This "around here" business really makes me laugh. Perhaps you should take it as a sign that you don't belong on the Columbus forum. This is Columbus, not Cleveland, not Akron...yet you cry about your alleged experiences that have nothing to do with Central Ohio.

The furious desperation emanating from you is just another futile, stale tantrum. Like I said, you need to grow up.

Why don't you tell your master how many Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers regular season games were shown on TV?
"WUAB has been the longtime "free TV" home of the Cleveland Cavaliers. which aired from October 1973 to April 1987, and again since October 1994"

"The station pulled off a major coup on September 2, 1979 by winning the broadcast rights to the Cleveland Indians of baseball's American League. The station broadcast Indians' games from the 1980 season through the 2001 season."

Keep going. How many of the 162 Indians games did they show each season?

Less than half of the Indians games and about a third of the Cavaliers ganes were on free TV.

Now you want to limit the universe on this to Columbus? Even better. Tell us all about all of the major sports broadcasts on local Columbus TV in the 70s.

You are the one that's having the tantrum Georgie. I'm laughing about making you dance again. Look what happens when I make one little post about local sports broadcasting? You are so easy.

Prove how many games were on free TV, kid. You can't and you don't have any memory of the '70s to begin with.
I'm not limiting anything to Columbus as far as broadcast sports sports go...I'm eliminating Cleveland since you claim it's some sort of bubble in the universe of broadcast sports. Remember what I posted?
"If major league sports ever went back to the TV model of the '60s and '70s, with a local flagship station and regional affiliates for the teams, cable would be dead as a doornail."
Then I proceeded to prove it to you when you cried about it.
If anyone is dancing, it's you...with no information, no links and outright lies. You should have quit while you were only slightly behind, or better yet, not trolled a thread that had nothing the least bit controversial about it. But your seething, blind hate won't let you exercise any sense of self-control where I'm concerned. That's power. MY power. I own you.

Not according to what Ben's saying now. He says we're looking at possible 80 mph winds between 2:00 and 4:00.

But it DOES support what George said.

No it doesn't. He said all the games in all the major league sports.

I don't know... it doesn't look nearly as well put together as last years' was. Plus the timing makes me think it will weaken.

Naturally you'll have the occasional pre-emption or a West Coast game that isn't run. And I said the NFL didn't adhere to that model.
Normal, average people will accept 72 games out of 78 or 80 as a full season.

"If major league sports ever went back to the TV model of the '60s and '70s, with a local flagship station and regional affiliates for the teams, cable would be dead as a doornail. Imagine Channel 53 carrying all 82 Jackets games for free. That was the norm in all major league sports until around 1985 except for the NFL."

Every single major professional sports game (baseball, basketball, football, hockey, etc.), as well as the broadcasts of any nationwide tv stations typically carried on cable tv are readily available free of charge to anyone with a) a high speed internet connection, and b) the desire to find the freely available links.

Presently, there's absolutely no reason to purchase cable tv if you have a high speed internet connection.

But it's moving slower...that may be just as bad. Last year's was in and out in half an hour. This may go for twice or three times as long. At least it's the cooler middle of the night instead of 4:00 and 100 degrees like last year.

We don't know for sure if she was even alive in 85.
"Lack of attendance" by Art Modell's standards, where 75,000 in a stadium that held 82,000 wasn't enough to permit broadcasting locally.
