Wikipedia says ROOT is used to be a couple Fox Sports ______ before a rebrand, so, FOX (Sports).

Where the gently caress is my CSN Houston?

CSN is owned by Comcast, and Comcast owns NBC, so, NBC (Sports).



edit: I may or may not get around to doing an effortpost about the different sports the networks own and the talking heads they employ to cover them. I'm extremely lazy though and going back to school at the end of the week, so

The answer to what they should air is always Team Handball. I have no idea when the season actually is but neither does anyone else. Just throw it on whenever you have nothing else. No one is going to know better.

Either that or more replays of World's Strongest Man.

I remember when ESPN showed Magic tournaments on TV. That needs to be brought back.

And more work for Gary Thorne

Yeah, ignoring the ethical issues I have with the NFL as a whole, the games take for-loving-ever, there's far less choice in what I can see (compared to college), and the whole event is just so sanitized and milquetoast that it almost becomes a victim of its own success. I don't doubt the talent level of the NFL is well above that of the college game but when the celebration is taken out, the pagentry is taken out, and you can pretty easily predict most outcomes, it just kills it for me. It doesn't help that being in NW Ohio, if I wanted to watch the NFL, I'm stuck with watching two of the worst NFL franchises of the last 20 years.

Back when I did still watch the NFL, I would usually watch the Sunday Night game, but I don't think I've watched MNF since.... christ, maybe the mid 2000s. I've never seen a Thursday night game.

I only watch Eagles games anymore

I'll say it again: primetime NFL football has been godawful this year.

Also, I think technically a Millennial is anyone who graduated high school from 2000 to 2009. I missed the cutoff by a year (1999). But yes, old people tend to see Millennials as anyone younger than 40.

I graduated high school in 2011

Creating the B1G hockey conference destroyed two very good conferences in the CCHA and WCHA. B1G hockey is basically a joke these days.

Nah. The conference tourney sucks, but the quality of play is pretty good imo. Its not HE or NCHC, but still p good. Way better than ECAC imo

The majority of ECAC is bad grit and grind hockey straight from the trap era. Its not a big secret ECAC is a boring defensive league for the most part. Its just not fun to watch

They're so paranoid due to cord cutting that I'm sure they've run a lot of audience analysis and determined they have more to lose by letting Jemele Hill speak than by policing her.

It's sad and wrong, but I'd be very shocked if that wasn't a primary influencer here.

I watched PTI for the first time in like, 5 years last night.

It's still good? And easy to see why it spawned so many imitators.

PTI's biggest asset is that their takes are interesting but not like "hot takes" a lot of the time. And obviously the natural chemistry. The way that Mike is always calling into Tony's podcast and talking about how he calls him on the weekend makes it clear that they're actually friends which is kinda sweet, even if they're both giant idiot gas bags.

Originally Tony was the stereotypical old white dude and Wilbon had some quality refreshing takes, but somewhere along the way Wilbon became starstruck and started huffing his own farts. Now Wilbon is the old white dude and Tony is the more interesting fellow

A quick reminder with all this talk of blackouts is that no football of any kind (even European football) can be shown in the uk between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday. This led in the past to the frankly ridiculous broadcast of a Real Madrid vs Barcelona game which kicked off at 5pm, where the first fifteen minutes consisted of nothing but a shot of the half-time pundits watching the game on tablets (turned away from the cameras) and commentating on it until 5:15

lmao, what the reason for that? Drunken hooligans?

yeah there's definitely the overall cord cutting effect, and only going 5 games didn't help either.

There's also this from a Fox Sports VP:


At the same time, the MLB's juice is in the local station ratings. Like hockey, it's a pretty tribal fanbase, and local broadcast ratings were up on the whole.

And there was a roughly 0% chance of LA winning the Series
