I posted on my FB/Twit that I needed a comcast name and password to watch Denver/Balti and within ten mins I had a friends credentials and I was watching the game, which we hooked up to the flat screen in the hotel through a VGA cable.

I also agree with what Jeff says below…when an MLL game is on, I have checked ESPN and ESPN2; typically it is Sportscenter being re-run for the 10th time or jokes like bowling, WNBA etc.

I haven’t had the opportunity to watch a single MLL game this season either. While everyone was talking about the Boston/Denver game on ESPN last week, they were playing a Rodeo on ESPN here in Idaho… :(
Tue, 02 Aug 2011 16:52:00 +0000http://laxallstars.com/?p=29927#comment-12204I get ESPN3, but I don’t really like sitting down at my laptop to watch games…I can’t understand why ESPN2 (or even ESPNU, no college games in the summer!) can’t carry more games because there is NOTHING on in the summer…can’t they fit it in with WSOP or whatever other crap they’re showing?
I think another problem is that people are just doing stuff outside in the summer and would rather not sit inside watching a game…also, a lot of the possible fans are at tournaments and camps in the summer and are not in a place to watch the game…for example, I was at the War at the Shore this weekend with 60 other teams who probably wouldn’t mind watching a game but would prefer to play, so there’s a large group who aren’t going to or watching games…there’s pretty much tournaments of this kind every weekend…don’t know what my solution would be, as I want the league to succeed
Tue, 02 Aug 2011 15:52:00 +0000http://laxallstars.com/?p=29927#comment-12203I’m not able to watch games either and covering the league has been very difficult. Fairpoint also does not provide ESPN3 and honestly, it sucks. Luckily CSNNE has shown replays of Cannons games and I have been to live games to cover them, but if I want to watch the Lizards, or the Outlaws, that’s out of the question.
Hard to blame ESPN. Lacrosse is just not a mainstream sport. It probably doesn’t draw in views all too much. This is more of a problem with cable providers that onlyt a minority have a problem with. Yes, it sucks, but not much ESPN2 and the MLL can do.
Tue, 02 Aug 2011 15:21:00 +0000http://laxallstars.com/?p=29927#comment-12202I agree that MLL should be on ESPN2. With the NFL in lockout until recently, baseball and golf seem to be about all that is covered. OK, Tour de France was a good diversion, but it would seem that there is TV bandwidth available for some MLL games.
