I especially enjoy reliving the highlights of a win. When I stay up late and watch the postgame while my wife is sleeping, the next day she’ll ask me what I did last night and I tell her I was watching the game and then “Gloatfest.”
Fair point. Fans come with expectations and really aren't needed to maximize profits. It probably pays more to be terrible than it does to carry a high payroll, and even if times were normal it's unlikely there would be many fans in the stands.
Remember last year. Pretty sure the did all the pre and posts from OPACY. Why couldn’t they do that again this year? Once again you don’t need to rent a building to do that?
They don’t want to pay to put their product out. Would think their are ways to limit the cost by doing that and perhaps using game announcers already under contract to do the shows.
I did want to add Tom Davis is still doing his Take Me Out to the Ballgame show on MASN. He has been doing it from a local Weis grocery store lately. In the summer he was outside somewhere. He gets his own sponsorship for the show.
Both teams do the pre and post at home when their teams are at home. When they are on the road the same building hosts both teams. I think it is near Hunt Valley somewhere. I hardly ever watched it but since Covid they stopped the Mid-Atlantic Sports Report as well. I half wonder if they ditched that building?
It must be costly to do a studio show in general. I would think the ones from the Stadiums were cheaper since you are using your own building and cameras already there. Of course no show you are saving labor costs for both.
It’s pathetic is what it is. It looks amateurish. You could see they were moving on from some people based on their hires last year. Bordick is a surprise a little bit. The rest were going to be cut back or in the case of Johnson weren’t used much anyway.
