I have my own issues with WTCN, but they are not at fault for staying with the Syracuse & Pitt game.

Yes, I'm upset we miss the begginning, but I would expect them to stay with an FAU game if it went to overtime.

Its a local station.. they should favor the local team.. when they rebroadcasted the FAU @ hawaii game they had no problem cutting us short with 2 min left to show a infomercial….

We can go back to not having any games at all on TV.

Anybody catch the FSU game? Only if you bought the PPV… What about the Florida game? Yeah, 9 hours later on tape-delay.

I don't think WTCN does a very good job with how they handle the ESPN Plus feed, no one will argue that, but I'm just glad FAU is on TV.

That is totally uncalled for - canadianowl is simply stateting an opinion and a fact. ESPN does the same thing they stay with overtime games all the time.

Just because we have issues with WTCN in the past has nothing to do with them not going to the game right away. The game was on TV - period. How many games in the past three years have been on TV, none except the playoff games, so relax a bit an enjoy the coverage that we do get. I can guarantee some Owl fans wish they had a chance to wacth the game on TV, but didn't have a chance.

Besides missing the begginning of the game, this was their best effort with a broadcast of an Owl game. So, maybe our e-mails has improve the coverage a bit.

Plus there is no reason to atack anyone for stateting and opinion that differs from yours. You need to relax a bit.

Ha ha ha! That's funny ;D Tremendous debating skills.

I on the other hand reserve my hatred for people with the IQs of hamsters who post on message boards just to see their name on a computer screen.

Dude, if you're going to post at least bring something to the table. Just be prepared for people to sometimes not have the same opinon as you (gasp!).

I know that's tough to deal with, but everyone isn't going to think the same as you… and we can all be thankful for that.

I was fortuante enough to watch the game yesterday on CSS after watching the past two weeks on WTCN. The difference in production value was night and day. The amount of mistakes that WTCN make, from commercials going long, to loss of signal, to missing large chunks of games are ridiculous. I realize that it is better than nothing, but if you are going to put the game on TV, at least do it right…especially on the station airing in your hometown. Televised games should be a 3 hour commercial for the program. The mistakes made by WTCN are embarassing and make the team and school look bush league.

As for showing the ending of Syracuse and Pitt., that is just an awful call. ESPN can do that because they are national. I doubt anyone who wanted to watch that game knew that it was even on WTCN anyway. Even if there were people watching that game, who cares? You show the local team. Period.

I agree, there crappy coverage does make our school look crappy… Sometimes I do wish the game wasnt telivised, like yesterday, anyone who was tunning in for the first time might have been turned off.

The last time I checked, WTCN was not owned or affiliated in any way with Florida Atlantic University, other than putting their football games on TV. They have no obligation to make the telecasts infomercials for FAU football.

I'm sorry to say, but pretty much the only people tuning in to watch the games are those of us that follow the team already. I would love it if we were on ABC or ESPN every week like Miami or Oklahoma or Ohio State… but we aren't Miami or Oklahoma or Ohio State (yet).

Plus, I wouldn't consider WTCN our hometown station. It's in Stuart, over an hour from the Boca campus with much or its viewership in Vero Beach.

But I'm glad to say we can all stop complaining since the rest of FAU's games this season are at home. So no one will be forced to watch anymore games on TV. I'm so sorry you all had to go through that.
