I guess 4 telecasts will be on the broadcast channel FOX, and the majority on Fox Sports (FS1). No details yet, no mention of CBS Sports. Hopefully this will be a much better deal for them.

hopefully! I actually like the FS1 and Fox sports networks better than ESPN so here's hoping!

I also think it is a positive move for the PBA. ESPN's coverage of sports in general has become very narrow and they will only promote what they feel will make them the most money while they continually hemorrhage viewers. FOX might promote it more in their commercials. Now, I'd suggest that if they're interested and he's interested, please bring back Marshall over Randy.

Good for Fox Sports. I hate that I pay over $8 a month for a channel I barely watch. ESPN is estimated to cost $8.37 per month in 2018 per subscriber. If I had the choice I would not even have ESPN but would have Fox Sports.

This is a great deal for the PBA. As Tom Clark indicated in the interview FOX is actually going to be selling the advertising and sponsorships on behalf of the PBA which means they are going to position this to succeed instead of just putting up taped shows against NFL football.

SteveH, Riggs said the PBA's move to FOX does not preclude a continued relationship with CBS Sports Network.

I thought it was exclusive. Either way, waaaaaay better than CBS Sports could offer with their limited coverage and lack of any ratings subscriptions.

So I was home sick yesterday and noticed what was on ESPN2 pretty much all day . . .


corn-hole. (in case it gets censored again. . . that little game with the beanbags. . . LOL)


Seriously? Get rid of bowling and jump on the [censored] bandwagon?
