Re: MLB Network (No Tiger Game Sunday?)

Be pissed at MLB if you want, but it's been plainly obvious for years that WOW doesn't care about sports fans. WOW is the only major cable provider without NFL Network, for instance.

No one's as pissed as I am. But WOW is a minor blame in this fiasco.

I want to understand every scumbag deal by these broadcasters but they hide behind press releases and bullshit. I'm sensing the blame is largely on TBS for somehow not getting 2 playoff games. How did this happen? Ha!!!... just try to find out. Anyone?

And be aware this crap may occur again on Wed the 10th, the OTHER day TBS covers only 3 of 4 games. Schedules, so far, are idiotically confusing.

I'm not sure how much it relates to the NFL Network (or MLB Network) issue and we are all subscribers so we are biased but I don't think WOW is considered a "major cable provider".

They've certainly made inroads, mostly through aquisitions, but they are still regional and not national. Being national would go a long way to being "major".

An update about Wednesday. It looks like St. Louis / Washington fans get the same screwing with not-as-available MLBN we got here on Sunday.

Schedule: »mlb.mlb.com/mlb/schedule/ps.jsp? ··· jsp?y=12

At the 50,000 foot view, it just looks like the classic big guys trying to squeeze the little guys. Nothing more.
