Another reminder that in era of new ESPN competition @panderson1988 Fox is proving itself to be capable of matching ESPN in its lows hah

Semantics AA --- "Football" can mean either Gridiron , like a College Bowl game which would've been cool beans 

I didn't read it as Association Football - which is what you guys delved into. Footy ~ 

Get with the program :)

@atvcar Except the Corporatocracy has its influence in Government, the Houses of Congress AND the Supreme Court

So technically *everyone* is a thieving bastard

How can one cheer for either side: We're only going to still be charged $10/ month for ESPN anyways

The broadcasters are doing what they have to do- stay relevant in the world of Internet . Which will make it serendipitous when the next medium trumps the Internet

and, at which time, the Internet providers will sue and beg to stay relevant ~

@Hawthorne Wingo  The irony is that bottomline is way more reserved than the SC Set itself. It almost doesn't fit in.

But our Rutgers logo will look good on it, so I guess its something, for my fellow fans

Besides grumbling over how still, our cable bills are so inflated because of ESPN, gaming the system the way they can, This is a bit fascinating

Personally I admit I want to see a Deeper ESPN Bottom Line like what Fox Sports 1 did in first month, and what ESPNews HD had 

But , coming from someone who made youtube fantasy sport videos, IT IS HARD to get data for onscreen graphics, Like bottom line . So can't wait to see what our cable bill went towards , tonight

Do they start this Sunday? Or the Sunday after that ? Semantics :)

I wonder if they will have a new Bottomline -- I count time with different style/theme of the Bottomline. 

Since getting cable, I've lived through 2 so far

Douglas thanks man& Congrats I loved your SOTB premise very much :) 

As a Rutgers fan & a racer video gamer, I took some satisfaction from your site, showing that one of the Seton Hall ' s Big east tourney game this year ALMOST got beat in ratings...

... to a Fox Sports 1 presentation of  the Tudor united sportscar series 12 Hour race of Sebring.

The two hours lol , of a 12 hour race, almost beat Seton Hall viewership lol Your site was great for a laugh :) keep it up

Right about MyNetTV  @Raymie I thought they used to show a 1hr taped presentation of MMA ,

that was during time Seth Petruzelli beat Kimbo Slice lol

I almost forgot they are like ion TV - lite . Syndication heavy network...

Plus, being in the cable &over the top internet content era IDK if anything can really help the CW other than viewers sick and tired of American Idol or The Bachelor/Bachelorette

Is There Any Remote Chance, that the CW and My Network TV can strike together some groundbreaking deal with one of the big sporting leagues??

Today, They are about as old as Fox Network was when they got a hold of their NHL/ MLB / NFL TV rights deals. Fox started, I think 1986 ( I was born 88)

I like the Masters but @jjrichards  Get Over It

Golf will ALWAYS be a fabric of culture. Auto Racing , However, is a lost , dwindling art

And it amuses me that people today rather see Hot Dog Speed Eating than Speeding Cars

In the annals of history - people will remember J.R. Hildebrand winning the Indy 500 in 2011 - then in a random moment of bizarre misfortune - he crashes and the Late Great Dan Wheldon drives ahead

Who's going to remember that guy who shot the ball into the water 3 times while playing for the lead at The Players' 2011?

Then again PGA should pay you a lot to endorse their sport's legacy.

15+ years ... I still watch Indy 500 ~ to this day

But really wished I grew up seeing the ones in the 80s... 90s during the breakup was Meh, I've seen the reruns on ESPN Classic and my On Demand

Just a bit out of body, that I get to race online at Simraceway, and I get to try out the virtual Indy -

Playing the sim really explains the Insanity of racing there !

WE STILL DO NOT have BTN - Big Ten Network , on Cablevision - it is in the same pricing tier as Cinemax

So right now we have the Barclays Premier League NBC feeds but no Rutgers lol

Kurt Busch , the outlaw, is last person I'd respect for his candor and personality to press

However, It Was A Typical Martinsville Race. No real estate to spare on track, no real estate to spare on pit road . You expect all the competitors to be saints !?

Too many writers are seeking blood and fury from drivers and that's irresponsible and meaningless. Exhibit A: Jayski reported that Nielsen Ratings were down from last year's race too . 

Forcing the narrative of No Holds barred / girls and boys have at it , doesnt guarantee more Nascar water cooler talk let alone ratings

Definitely looks great and current - NASCAR-Fox updated theirs to show time interval difference from leaders
Big loss though - the NASCAR board doesn't show stylized numerical fonts , the prior generation foxbox did

Coming from going to Rutgers, back before Julie Hermann - Coach Mike Rice -gate , There was A TON of heat because several of our fans said inappropriate things to the Navy football team

There HAS to be responsibility from fans- When it comes to saying the wrong things, let alone racist words- there's no place for it So I Hope they investigate at least if this happens to be the case.

Buying ticket lets you root the home team positively THERE IS NO RIGHT in using slurs - Rutgers was called out for it and every team's fans need to be aware that this is unacceptable

This bad choice of words could make the fans here look as bad as those in European soccer games , shouting slurs at players like Luis Suarez or  Balotelli SMH

I BET Donovan McNabb calling out Jimmie Johnson and racecar drivers 'un-athletic', was the reason for lack of viewer interest in FS Live. 

I admit I'm a racing fan BUT I see other sports like golf and ultimate frisbee and Hot Dog Speed eating as legit. 

If you're a personality on a sports show,, the least you can do is have a cursory glance at the dynamics and challenges of 'the game' before making rash and superficial comments like McNabb did. (I like him and still do but he lost plenty of points on my card)
