    Joe is not a fan of streaming sports either. Giant pain in the arse.

    But the real question is. Does his wife approve? I have a feeling Boby is on thin ice after his wife took off for a Polk County vacation at a dried-up spring.

    Boby is currently wondering what to do with his life and children considering his wife is no longer attractive enough to leave him for another Frisbee champion.

    What should we all think about now???

    I hate everything going to streaming as well. To me all that does is reduce the audience and limit availability. If it’s done on top of being shown on network, fine, more options. When it is the only option, it’s a horrible idea. There are dozens of streaming services and they’re only going to be more and more and more. Everything is getting compartmentalized and separated more and more.
    Do they expect every fan to pay for dozens and dozens of services to get an occasional game? No thanks

    You hit the nail on the head. A real sports fan has to buy this service and that service and the other service it’s nuts.

    Then you have to worry about buffering and if you are like Joe, you have to hope your browser is compatible with the service. Last week watched the preseason game on Amazon (just to hear Michaels and Herbie work together) and it took Joe about 20 minutes to find the right browser on his laptop. What a pain in the arse!

    Just put the games on regular TV/cable/satellite so Joe can watch his games on his 60-inch TV while loafing on his leather couch and not have to fool with his 14-inch laptop sitting in his office work chair

    Dave, other Joe here, just standing up and hoping the first Joe soon realizes how easy it is to stream on his TV like many tens of millions of Americans.. –Joe
