How about they just cancel the promotion on the grounds that they're using fans who have paid large sums of money to be at a World Series game to take part in a promotional campaign but likely wouldn't be seeing any compensation in return.

@kenosando Modern announcers seem to view themselves as equally important (if not moreso) than the event they are describing.
Guys like Buck, Berman, and to the most extreme Hawk. They're too worried about getting in their catchphrases and cute quips that the moment is lost in their own arrogance.
Example: Buck ruining the Freese homerun a few years ago by stealing the "See you tomorrow night" call.

Ugh. No no no no no.
The biggest problem with using Twitter as a measuring stick for popularity or quality is that those who try to use Twitter chatter tend to only pay attention to mentions of the subject.
So while "Sharknado" may have been a hot topic on Twitter, that just means people were tweeting things that included the words "Sharknado" or "#Sharknado".
That would include any of the following:
"30 minutes into Sharknado. It sucks. Turning it off."
"What is this Sharknado everybody's talking about?"
"I'm not watching Sharknado."
"Shut up about Sharknado already."
and the ever popular:
"Why is Sharknado trending?"
And that's before we even factor in spam bots that will tweet out random bit.ly links with "Sharknado" and "#Sharknado" attached because they scanned the top trends for things to add to their phishing scams.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Is there a disconnect between Twitter and reality?
It makes perfect sense. When you look at somebody like Skip Bayless or Stephen A. Smith, the reason they've become such large "personalities" is because they don't bother with fact or reason when making an argument. They just state their opinion, loudly, and keep doing so as much as they can in hopes of drowning out whoever they're "debating".
Meanwhile, if you're trying to argue from a position of fact and reason you won't be able to talk as quickly or as loudly because you're focused on drawing the correct facts and properly assembling your arguments. And it's hard to get a word in edgewise if the opposition won't shut up.

Just so we can be clear on what is happening here:
A journalist is reporting accurate and sourced information as it breaks....and is getting chewed out by his readers because he's "spoiling" what they're seeing on a television broadcast specifically designed to generate ratings and ad revenue by withholding said information.
This is a thing that happened.

The comparison to Sandusky is the media's response. You've got two people who abused their authority to have sexual relationships with children. One was an older male and young boys, the other a young attractive female and a young boy.
One was a monster from day 1. The other is getting a TV series.
1 year, 4 months ago on Former Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones reportedly scores reality show
So you're saying this isn't nearly as bad because the woman in question is a hot cheerleader? Thank you for proving my point.
The woman in question is a teacher, who abused her position as a teacher to have sex with an underage boy. There's a reason "statutory rape" exists. it's too protect underage children from being taken advantage of by people who are supposed to be caretakers.
Both Jones and Sandusky took advantage of their position to have inappropriate relationships with children who were supposedly under their care.
Your suggestion that it's okay because Jones is a hot cheerleader suggests we'd be having a different discussion if she weren't attractive. Or if, God forbid, she were a male teacher.
Jones is a teacher, who is trusted with teaching kids the ways of the world. And when your students are teens coming to terms with sexuality, one of those teachings is maturity, restraint, and responsibility.
What a great concept! TLC should pick it up and air it alongside Toddlers & Tiaras as part of their new "TV for Pedophiles!" programming block.
On a more serious note, it's disgusting that not even a few months removed from the conclusion of the Sandusky case, we're already being expected to be accepting ofa child rapist because "she's hot".
Is it common practice for ESPN's Bottom Line to include a breakdown of each pass and why it wasn't completed? Because that "0-1 (J. Hill dropped 33-yd pass)" bit is just hilarious on it's own.
I'd liken it to "Jeter: 0-1 K (But it looked like he checked his swing)"
