The ASU radio call is one of the worst calls in the history of broadcasting. But since it came against Michigan, I LOVE it.

The customer in this scenario is the network (CSN), who is paying for the rights to broadcast the games. CSN gets to decide who does what..even with the Blackhawks owing 25% of the network. If the team has a legitimate issue (which this clearly isn't), CSN could still have made a move after the season. And why fire her? Is there not something else she could do for CSN?

 

The teams want unabashed homers, pure and simple. The network needs to grow a pair and remind the team who is paying. I mean, it's not like CSN has to worry about not getting to bid on the Blackhawks games in the future--they're the only network willing to do it. CSN standing firm and allowing its on-air talent and reporters to report and comment without fear of retaliation from the team would allow the network to have some tiny shred of journalistic integrity. As it stands, it has absolutely zero.

So the vids are unfunny and NSFW. Bob Costas and Al Michaels were in BASEketball...does that ruin either one's journalistic career? This reeks of a double standard. She used to do COMEDY (successful or not, it was an attempt) and no longer does that. Why in the hell would this be an issue now?? If she were still producing the Sports Nutz vids, then of course it would be an issue. But otherwise, this is completely dumb.

So, Matt, what you're saying is "I don't care about the rules and even if it was a good call, I don't buy it." That's idiotic. By the time both players got 2 feet on the ground (the minimum to establish possession), both players squarely had the ball...so simultaneous possession, receiver gets a catch. If "control" is the factor, then clearly the GB player controlled the ball first before establishing possession. So how about analysis instead of whining?

 

As for your "you can't have this in pro football" line, we've HAD this in pro football before, even with real refs. And we'll have it again, even if the real refs come back.
