In Reply to: 4:30pm PST Kickoff UCLA - Pac 12 Network AGAIN! posted by beachdevil on October 14, 19 at 11:04:55:
We're not ever going to be the #1 choice of the ABC/ESPN networks unless we're playing USC or Oregon, or Washington.
And it looks like the old, "The Pac-12 Network is the dumping ground for lower-level games - let's get the good teams out there nationally to help the conference perception," philosophy at Pac-12 headquarters is out.
It has changed into a slightly more jaded, "We need to create real value for the network and force fans to clamor for it so the cable companies buckle to our $$$ demands. The Pac-12 shareholder value has to go up so we can sell part of it to a venture cap-- Wait... This meeting is on a conference call with the press?? *cough cough* The, um, I misspoke. The schools come first. We need to provide value for the schools."
We - the fans - are Larry Scott's bitches. And he's giving it to us rough.
