How are they not showing US/Korea live on TV?

Postby Boyakasha » Mon Mar 13, 2006 11:25 pm

I was interested to see Korea against the US, following some unexpected wins against Japan and Mexico, and it's not on TV, live? Sucks.

'Cause Selig's a moron.

How exciting is this competition Bud? Exciting enough to put your own countries game on a taped delay at 1AM?

:-P

I'm watching the game right now on a local channel, I don't have ESPN or ESPN2 but they have picked up the ESPN2 feed for some reason.

:-? What does Bud Selig have to do with what ESPN choses to air? Unless they have some kind of contractual obligation, that I am not aware of, not to show it like certain football games

Espn believes that they will have more viewers for Stephen A. Smith :-P :-P :-P then the WBC, so they are showing that. I love that guy. :-P :-P

For some reason the Venezuela-Puerto Rico game is on live up here?.. Oh well, decent game, and the way the result is it's setting up an elimination game between Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. That game should be off the hook. ;-D

I have been complaining about ESPN's coverage (or lack there of) since the Asian pool began play. Why are they showing Tennis and Quarter finals of out market mid-major conferences over the WBC?

Tape delay until 1am in my area. Stupid.

What's the point of advertising this as a big deal for baseball and then not letting anyone watch it? Especially since the U.S. is playing.

Maybe this is part of the tape delay choice?
