Thought I was going to watch the national news at 6:30. No such luck. All 3 channels interrupted with their psychedelic maps and doppler this and that. 4 found it necessary to team both Gelber and Ganahl together. Stanley Cup is on tonight. Hope they don't interrupt that.

They have before. I remeber a few years back they went to all weather and had some idiots driving down to Chillicothe saying "it is raining on bridge street, now turning on US 23 still raining" doing that all game and when the game was over back to regular crap.

NBC 4stations out of Columbus shoukd have had their license pulled for that.

I remember a bad storm on "Red White & Boom" day maybe 5 or 6 years go. It cleared by fireworks time, but the non- stop coverage was nauseating. I think we saw less of this on 4 when it was owned by NBC. But it's owned by Media General now. I understand the need to keep everyone informed, but Geez!

Damnit...there they go cutting the game to drone on about a rainstorm. Who the hell cares about Marion anyway? Jonah will piss the thing away.
The phones must be lighting up because Jym is saying that the FCC forces them to stay live with weather during a tornado warning. He specifically mentioned the game.

Now they are back to making crap up. Jym kust said they can't answer the phones because they have to be live on the air. I guess Ben and Jym are the only two people there.

Now they are talking about a canceled tornado warning for areas that cannot even pick up Columbus stations now they are digital. Digital sucks. A cat fart in Kansas will knock off OSU and 28.

I agree, digital is often more trouble than it's worth...and they refuse to admit that thousands in this country are dropping cable/satellite and going to OTA reception everyday.
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.

Free TV carrying all of a teams games prior to 1985? Not around here, Masshole. I hope you miss the entire game tonight.

So you lived in Hicksville and were beholden to Cleveland's teams and poor TV market. Larger, four sport, traditional markets did exactly what I described.
Your post is a perfect example of what trolling is, little girl. Thanks for showing what a child you really are.

I remember NE indiana back then had chicago and Detroit teams on all the time.
These weather spotters need to be retrained. Rain is not dangerous unless you are trapped in a ditch.

Is that right?

And when, after nine seasons on WPIX, the NY Giants went to the West Coast in 1957, the station quickly signed a record-breaking contract with the Yankees to televise over 140 ball games at home and on the road. The contract for over 400 programming hours was at the time the largest single time sale in the history of the medium. For 47 years, the station was the broadcast home of the New York Yankees.

For much of the time between 1970 and 1984, WSBK would televise between 70 and 72 of the Bruins' 80 regular season games, as well as all playoff games not shown on network television.

More like the poor sports market... many Browns games were blacked out in those days (especially the 84 season) due to lack of attendance...

That certainly explains her continuing propensity to make herself look like an idiot when she talks about things she knows nothing about.

So you are posting in Columbus, Ohio, talking about the current state of local TV coverage of major league sports, but really what you meant was what major league sports TV coverage was like in New York and Boston, two of the most atypical sports markets in the country, and I am the idiot for commenting about sports coverage in Ohio. Yeah, that makes sense.

Why don't you tell your master how many Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers regular season games were shown on TV?

Here's what I wrote:

"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."

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.
