Arena Football attendance has not been even CLOSE to 13,000 a game. The league was CLOSE to that figure in 2008 before taking a year off. Since it has returned with lower budgets, they've averaged around 8,000 a game. Is it really that hard to check and not just take Vince Neil's word for it?

@GoAay96 Except that's not even close to true. 

Of 63 nationally-televised (in English) MLS games this season, exactly NONE were on a weekday (unless you consider Fridays to be ( a ) weekdays and ( b ) "random"). 


55 of 63 were on Saturdays and Sundays. You know, when SPORTS ARE ON TV IN THIS COUNTRY. But YOU can't figure that out, I guess. 

17 of the 63 were at 10pm, 10:30pm or 11pm (that's 27%, not "always," so, wrong again), but that's because HELL-FRIGGING-OH, WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT SPANS FOUR TIME ZONES, YOU MOOK. 

So we're supposed to have people in Colorado and Utah and Oregon go to games at 5pm to satisfy a guy who admits he watches the domestic league a third as much as a league WHOSE GAMES ARE ON AT 5 IN THE GODDAMN MORNING? And who complains about 10PM STARTS?

These are like Underpants Gnome solutions right now. You act as if it's simple to just turn fans of the USMNT into MLS TV fans, AS IF THEY HAVEN'T BEEN TRYING TO DO THAT FOR THE LAST 17 YEARS, GENIUS. You act as if they didn't have consistent windows before (they did, it didn't help). You act as if you can just "find a TV partner to go all in with you" as if that's like "Find a supermodel who will go out with you, Cheeto-Stained-T-Shirt-Boy, it's easy, I swear!" You know eff-all about MLS, yet you opine (in a terribly-thought-out and terribly-written way) about stuff you act as if you can just wave a wand at. You're doing it for page views and comments and for no other reason. It's insane.

Don't excuse unprofessionalism under the guise of "passion."

 

You can be passionate for the game you're calling and not be a fanboy.

 

If he's got a three-year career, he should know better than to be a fanboy.

Yes, it's not newsworthy at all for Ponder to be asked that question. But it's TOTALLY newsworthy for you to write about that question being asked to get page views.

Not true. Pam Ward is incredibly ugly. Andrea Kremer was the ugliest woman ever on network TV.

Amazing how no one has ever produced tape of "this kind of banter" before.

And the ratings are up without Gus Johnson. Odd.

 

I guess some fans feel the GAME is actually exciting enough without someone acting a fool on TV.

 

CBS dumped Gus Johnson. The Knicks dumped Gus Johnson. FOX keeps trying to force-feed how cool and hip he is to an audience that doesn't know any better.

 @GuysGirl  @amatyi If you'd set your mind to proper writing, anything might be possible. Seriously, back to j-school. If you ever went to j-school. Your article is full of poor phrasing and style.

This might be the worst thing ever done. This is worse than Sports Soup. This is so unbelievably bad. And, no, I doubt someone with as large a career catalog as Jim Nantz was "seriously jealous" of the circus act that is Gus Johnson. He's a clown. And this is one step up from the Carmelo Anthony "kill a snitch" video.
