they dump it (For a hard to find Fox channel), then can't understand why
they don't get more exposure...
Panthers14 -- Are you glad the game is being held at a neutral site??? More
thanks goes to the TV network for that...
"If games are missed, it hurts no one" ...... ABA CEO Joe Newman 2/9/09
Due to numerous threats of legal action from certain people.......all of the above is my opinion only and it should be noted that I have never invested in the ABA. It is simply one mans opinion.
Fox Soccer Channel secret: they actually have a lot of programming that they're not going to ditch for NOT KNOWING when a final could be played at a home site (best way to judge- look who advertises and when. They make money with English Premiership games, a little less with Liga Italia, MLS might be break-even). Besides, hasn't that been the case the last three years or so with the championship telecast for whatever network they're on?
What saddens me is that this league is a lot closer to the abyss than, say, the ABA is. It doesn't surprise me, however. I only respond because there are people here acting like the league picks a TV network... when it is most certainly the other way around.

I couldn't quote you absolute specifics, but these are almost always either time buys or co-op deals. This isn't the NFL, MLB or NBA we're talking about here. The MISL isn't going to be generating the types of ratings that would lead to any type of money going from network to league.
