I'm confused. When I click on the link, the video screen comes up and it just plays this 9 second promo and doesn't show anything else.

Duhhhhh....

Its working fine for me. Do you have silverlight installed? The video is using a new embeded video player and you can download it from their link on the xtra frame site.

Yes, I had Silverlight installed. I went to lunch and came back and it seems to be working now. Maybe I just hopped on there too early...

It's snowing like the dickens here and it looks like League is gonna be cancelled tonight... I'm very sad.... frown

Xtra frame should be free period.

It would drum up some sort of following for this dying sport instead of sucking the last bit of life from it.

Installed the Silverlight and so far it works good.

I agree. If it was free it may attract more people to the sport. From what I see the archived ESPN stuff has commercials so can't some revenue be generated via sponsors?

I watched PBA Xtra Frame this week and here are my thoughts on it.

1. I really think the guys doing the commentary do a great job and explain what is going on very well considering there is so much going on.

2. I like the camera angles better than what they have on ESPN. I must take back some of the stuff I have been saying about Scroggy, he was like a machine, and has a very nice swing and the ball is very close to his ankle and he is nowhere near as wobbly and off balance as he appears on ESPN with the horrible camera angles they have it makes lefties look unwatchable.

3. I love the way you can go on friends of the pba on Facebook and ask questions and hear the answers back right then and there. This is the wave of the future, fan participation. You want to know what ball someone is using and what drill pattern and what surface, they knew all of it. Barnes was throwing a wine U dot at various points this week, if you see him throwing a red/purple ball on TV Sunday, that's it.

As much as I enjoyed watching it I don't think it is worth $70 a year for it. It should be free, if it was TV ratings would pick up since people would get into watching during the week and want to tune in to see who wins. If they can get their Facebook page involved and answer questions during the show that would be a break through that other sports would have to copy.

I have to disagree with you on scroggy Jim. I saw him this week roll over 200 shot and he keep his balance maybe 35-40% of the time. As much as we dislike him everyone here wishes they could bowl exactly like him.
I agree with everything else

Everyone here can bowl just like him, most of us take lessons so we don't laugh but seriously maybe I saw him in a good round, but the ball was tight to his ankle at the release on every shot even the ones he was off balance slightly. With the garbage camera angles they use on ESPN to me it looks like Scroggy is going to fall on his head every shot, and at no time did I see him make a shot that bad on Xtra frame where they shot him from behind.

It should be free. I can't see paying the money for that every month. I did like the Barnes/Mallot match. That was very good. I thought they followed Belmo around too much. I couldn't seem to catch PDW. If they showed him, I missed it. The PDW-Edwards match seemed to be very close. I liked having the PBA bowlers on as commentators. Very informative. I loved watching Fagan loft the gutter cap.

Scroggins rarely misses the pocket. He's like a left handed WRW Jr. But still, I think it's Barnes to lose. And he's done that before.
