Is the PDGA actually paying these various media companies to cover the event? I'm assuming they are not, because wouldn't that need to be voted on due to funds coming out membership fees?

Pdga doesn't need membership approval for every expense. That said, they should have transparency on how contracts are awarded... Not that I'm saying they did anything below table.

I'm sure they vote on the budget annually, including the media budget right? .

The board probably handles the overall budget for each dept. It isn't broken down anywhere for PDGA members to really see, but media is probably it's own segment, or maybe tied into advertising? I could see it both ways.

FPO1 is rightfully getting paid for their work. I would assume MPO2 is as well, but can't confirm the latter.

And as I have stated everywhere at this point. The PDGA never reached out to Terry to see if he could handle any post production coverage. They assumed that because he was busy with live (for a single NT event currently, possibly 2) that he couldn't handle it. You know, just like Ian can't handle FPO1 because he is ALWAYS onsite... oh wait, he isn't and has a crew that does. Yeah... anyway. It is funny that I am personally more offended over this than Terry.

The process in general has just opened up my eyes as to how I need to make sure to handle SmashBoxxTV business matters.
