The Ratings

I had to say this early, because I was listening to sports radio again. One of the guys says “ratings for this Masters were down 10 percent”.

Who cares? Why even mention it?

Besides a bunch of network flunkies and bean counters, who really cares about ratings?

Do you watch sports because of the ratings an event may have? If you do, you’re a weirdo. Last I heard, it’s harder than ever to get a ticket to the Masters. In fact, a different sports radio guy said getting a ticket to the Masters is harder than getting one for any other sporting event. Bar none.

Please, sports media guy: I’ve learned the number of people watching an event has nothing to do with the quality of the event. Otherwise, Jerry Springer and Maury Povich would have nothing to do.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
