Espn covering First again

I have a hunch with the fan friendly game this year that Espn will cover the games.

we don't get NASA TV anymore either. we did get it for years when i wasn't in FIRST. Comcast has to be the WORST cable company.

well no matter WHAT cable u get, nobody gets NASA! maybe somebody should talk to the peeps at FIRST about getting this stuff on something that people actually get--i mean they kinda complain about no publicity, so why not put it on something like espn?

ESPN 2 used to cover FIRST back in the day.... I'm still not sure why they stopped. It would be nice to have a more mainstream coverage again though, and I know I wasn't the only extremely frustrated person over the SoCal regional last year when it came down to the last match, and NASA cut it off to sleeping astronauts! Maybe Disney could give us a hand in this. They do have an amazing number of mainstream tv networks... ABC, Disney Channel, and ESPN I do believe...

The first time i ever heard anything about FIRST was in 1998 when ESPN showed the finals for the national championships (and we woin) thats kind of why i actually watched...i think it would be great for FIRST if it was brodcasted on ESPN....that would increase the viewing audience..plus, how many people actually get nasa TV?

Well, I may have a partial answer.. As the years of ESPN coverage were ending, you can see Dean saying more and more that atheletes are inadequate basises( or whatever it's plural is) for the youth of the nation.. We watched a tape of the coverage of Tower Terror and Rug Rage, and you can see the progression..

Nasa is all we'll get for now, though Disney does own ABC.. And they are making a movie.. Maybe we'll see ABC next year.. I hear this year National Geographic was smarming kickoff and probably Nationals..

I don't get NASA either. Comcast eliminated it as of the beginning of this year.

yeah i heard about the movie. i think thats really cool, although the people they get to star in it are going to know nothing about FIRST and all the values that come from it. i would love to see real FIRST people star in it.

Re: Movie

I wanna see smaller teams in there as opposition to the protagonists.. But no, it'll probably be teams with product placement in mind..


No offense to any teams that fit that description..
