Correct. Here is a link explaining in more detail. [link=(http://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2015/07/08/mls-announces-additional-investment-club-rosters-introduction-targeted-allocation)]TAM[/link]...

re: NCAAB Thread | 12/7 - pjk481
I believe when his contract was up with ESPN, and he was a free agent, the Big East had just moved to FS1, so he wanted to keep calling those games, but wanted to call Tourney games as well. His contract I believe is with Fox and CBS, hence why you will see him on tourny games and on some Saturday/S...

re: MLS to significantly increase TAM spread across the league - pjk481
It's a big help in the sense that teams can add to the depth of their team. Essentially, with TAM increasing 800k this year, clubs could add, say 2 new players in the 800k range, buy down their "cap hit" with the TAM money to only 400k a piece. MLS cap is very complex, but that's my simple understan...

re: NCAAB Thread | 12/6 - pjk481
I'm watching the Cal Princeton game too. Pretty cool how FS1 is honoring those that died at Pearl Harbor by scrolling their names on bottom ticker the whole game. Also, nice having Raft and Gus on the call. ...

re: FS1 Studio Show is Baseball's Version of NBA on TNT - pjk481
I had this same thought last night while watching after the game. There constant ribbing of AROD about how much money he's made and asking Pete about "watching" games in 1908 was great television. ...

re: NLDS Game 4: Cubs 6 Giants 5 | Final | Cubs win series 3-1, on to NLCS!!!!!! - pjk481
I agree. I've really enjoyed ARODs analysis. He picks up a lot of little details, such as when he noted Rizzo giving a quick clap after the first walk and a quick hug to first base coach after his hit. Little things that I didn't notice during the game, but sort of points to the players confidence i...

re: Big 12 to push with expansion? - pjk481
Ya, this Tulane "Darkhorse" narrative seems to be picking up some steam in the media. I saw Stewart Mandel from Fox mention the same thing in one of his articles. Also saw an article from Dennis Dodd that mentioned the Tulane as darkhorse because Texas was "receptive" to them joining. [link=(htt...

re: FS1 coverage email. - pjk481
Exactly, this tournament had a 3rd party service that tournament organizers hired to produce the "world feed." That is what FOX, as the rights holder, has access too. Univision had same exact broadcast/camera work. Nothing Fox can do about the production in game, as they do not control the camera sh...

re: CHC Thread 5/22: Cubs 0 Giants 1 | Final - pjk481
Looks like you can watch it on fox deportes, but it will be in Spanish. They give the local fox station the choice of which of the three games to show. Most have Cubs, but I guess nola/Br chose astros. ...

re: FS1 "Fast Tracking" a Jason Whitlock/Colin Cowherd debate show - pjk481
The new version of Fox Sports Live with Jay and Dan is pretty entertaining. Reformatted as a 30 minute show, with a more late night show feel, less highlight show feel. Usually on at 10pm every night, repeats at 10:30. If you've heard Jay and Dan's podcast, the show is similar to that. I'll tune...

re: It's weird seeing Colin Howherd on a broadcast booth - pjk481
That is true, but not tier 1/2 that they can put on fox/FS1. Those games have to be on BTN. They want content for FS1. Here is an article on what I was referring to. [link=(http://awfulannouncing.com/2015/could-the-michigan-utah-game-in-september-lead-to-bigger-things-for-fox.html)]Awful Ann...

re: It's weird seeing Colin Howherd on a broadcast booth - pjk481
True, but the B1G rights are up for bidding after next season. Currently, Fox shares the rights with ESPN for football and has no basketball rights. (Espn and CBS share those). So it's in their interest to promote the B1G and make a big push to secure the conference as the sole rights holder. ...
