Ah, thanks for the clarification. I agree that eventually all media is going to a paywall, though I don't see that as a bad thing. Some people want MORE out of us, and they are willing to fund it as...

DGWT did not paywall media, nor did DGPT, seems like you're taking potshots there.

Despite that, I agree with the principle of your post, which is that the PPV model was not a big success when...

I'll try to keep this brief, and as a general reply. If anything is unclear let me know-

I think proving that correlation would be nearly impossible, as it connects an assumption (course fatigue) with an action (delta in views). Even if you found a tournament where viewership decreased,...

I'm relatively certain the DGPT intends to sell the rights, or at least pick the RFP that is free to them. Those are my words/thoughts though, not anything official.

I agree with JVD, it's...

That's a great story, and I'm quite sure the main points hold water, but it's also a spin job. It comes off as painting Steve as an innocent, trusting Tour Director who was shafted by people in the...

Agree with this, other than the price model - American Capitalism says that when your audience is captive, you gouge them, not give them a break.

I feel your pain, trust me, nobody wants to play on a card in MA3. I played it once for my first sanctioned tournament and even I was like "wtf am I doing here?"

CBS is the absolute worst offender on this one. I loathe seeing CBS get LSU games, because it means 4 hours where everybody else gets it done closer to 3.

At least they do the edited games mid...
