I think I missed the announcement of espn moving their operations to LA. Are they going to be bi-coastal or is LA their permanent home? Did this just happen this week? That's a big move to go across the country and all those employed by them. What was the reason for their move?

They only moved 3 guys out to LA. Only a portion of the sports centers will be produced out of LA. There is some talk that MNF might be produced in LA this fall.

Good.

Maybe they are getting a little p.o.'ed at being (rightly IMHO) called the

Eastern

Seaboard

Programming

Network

They bring that absolutely God-awful Bob Norton for their college hockey.

BN: "That's not Haaaawkey, That big, mean person playing for that big, mean WCHA school checked our poor little, underskilled BC center, Fletcher Benjamin Cavanaugh IV. Everyone who can P in the Atlantic Ocean knows Haaaaawkey doesn't involve hitting. Just skate, pass, look good, and live off Daddy's trust fund".

Is anyone else not living in NY or MA sick and tired of Yanks vs. Sox?

AL East Baseball

Big East Hoops

Cindy Crosby Highlights

Jets Highlights (Why?!?!)

I've been watching ESPN since 1982 and I miss Aussie Rules Football and the "Big Wall of Hoops" at tourney time.

Sorry-rant over.

rader4ever i agree with you completely.

i rarely watch espn anymore. too many long winded analyst rants and eastern teams. Whats up with them not giving college hockey a look until the frozen four? They dont even give scores or highlights throughout the season but they broadcast live the national spelling bee. things that make you go hmmmm...

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
