WHY THE HELL???

This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

As someone who might be headed to that game, I'm going to be leaving at the start of the fourth quarter if its a blow out. I don't want to see drunk Marshall fan Vs. drunk WVU fan after the game. I want to be far away.

Might have to do what I do when I go to a Browns game to see the Steelers.

Don't get me started on FSN Pittsburgh. :evil:

Actually my anger is directed at SuddenMissingLink. The 70-mile long, 5-mile wide Ohio portion of their Mid-Ohio Valley system includes Marietta, Belpre, Pomeroy, Middleport, Gallipolis and adjoining areas. Despite many years of many complaints going back thru the Charter years, the pinheads at Charleston HQ continue to send FSN Pittsburgh into what is naturally and obviously Buckeyes-Reds-Bengals-Indians-Cavs-Browns country.

In fact, it would be interesting to know how many of their MOV customers on the West Virginia side of the river would prefer FSN Ohio over Pittsburgh. I doubt there are a lot of PA sports fans in Point Pleasant. (I lived in Point and it's more Reds-Bengals-Marshall than anything.)

One would think SuddenLink would want to sell a channel with a built-in fan base, but I guess they don't think a population of only 50-60K is worth the effort. :?:

Could go the Adelphia/Comcast route and carry both.

At least for now.

Yep. They sure could, as suggested by a number of customers at a community meeting several years ago. The response then:"We'll look into that." :roll:

Get someone experienced to call them and call them and call them and call them (you get the picture) until you get an answer.
