'Rose Bowl only on ESPN' rant

That makes sense. Perhaps the second biggest annual sporting draw in the US. Ignore the over-the-air viewers. We don't spend money. Well done BCS/Disney
Time for my meds

nor will Orange or Sugar Bowls

Yeah, that sucks. We went OTA-only not long ago and these kinds of things suck. Don't miss the huge dish bill though.

How anyone could be a sports fan and not already have become an espn customer at some point over the last 30 years is beyond me but, trust me, they aren't ignoring you. They are trying to get you to become customers. The way they do that is to pay to have some good content on their station.

Check out epsn3.com since we went OTA most of the games I watch are online.

I don't know about where you live but here you can't just call up the cable system and say I'll take just ESPN.

Same here. I had dish for 8 years. Dumped it due to the job situation/economy. Except for unique cases like this, I don't miss it.

Thanks, they list it @5pm EST. I'd watch it online if it's on espn3.
