I say this every year and stand by it, but these games are bad, and are insanely unfair to half of the team who are forced to play in them each year. Continue reading Once again, the NCAA Tournament play-in games are trash and unfair
If you could only choose one, a feed in HD, or having the scorebug on at all times? They’re both things that make the viewing experience that much better, but which is more necessary? Continue reading HOT SPROTS DEBATE: Would you rather have an HD feed or a scorebug?
I’m here to give you the hard truth: Bill Walton is awful. It is not enjoyable listening to him on a broadcast, and I have gotten to the point where I refuse to watch any game where he is the announcer. Continue reading Actual HOT SPROTS TAKE: Bill Walton sucks
What if you had no idea what the hell the people who determine the scores are thinking, and have no control over the points or rounds you are awarded for doing your best, and possibly better than the other competitors?
