It is literally stunning that in the year 2021 a person can have access to hundreds and hundreds of channels through streaming, satellite, and cable yet can’t watch the mlb team they want to watch. Something is very wrong with that system.April 16, 2021 at 9:10 am #158224
It is very frustrating, but with so many stakeholders, it would be difficult for anyone to manage. Hence when it is out of control, no one has authority to fix it.
If MLB cared about fans not being able to see games, they would have pushed to resolve the archaic blackout rules years ago. I remember Selig once vowing to fix it back in about 2006. We saw how that went. Manfred seems to be ducking it, probably because he understands the complexity.
In the meantime, the game sinks lower in the mud…April 16, 2021 at 10:45 am #158233bccranParticipant
The greed will drive some fans away.April 17, 2021 at 9:17 am #158368
My take on an important topic highlighted by @Ben_Fred yesterday – the growing problem of #stlcards fans – and fans across the country – unable to see MLB games. I share old Bud Selig quotes, and 15 years later, still no one at MLB seems to care. (free) https://t.co/kle94h2dzV pic.twitter.com/qwFeoJvzfP

Some day soon, a significant number of fans are going wretch over the greed, and start walking away. If there’s a work stoppage over that greed, it will be the last straw for some.April 25, 2021 at 9:24 am #159125

Yes, that is the situation I am in here in Northwest Arkansas. My cable affiliate carries the Cardinal games on Bally Sports Southwest Plus, however there are some conflicts with the NBA, NHL, Rangers, and Royals. On nights with a conflict I switch over to the Fox Sports Go app I downloaded and watch the game there. Not ideal but it works.April 30, 2021 at 11:31 am #159667
When originally published, the by-game Bally Sports Southwest Plus schedule for May was not included. For #stlcards fans in Oklahoma and Arkansas, you can now find this updated information in the initial article. https://t.co/xqcKzhQ2Ae https://t.co/C0HsawPdnj
