Some folks want to experience the tension live.

There are never any games scheduled at the same time as the Fox games of the week, and nobody else is allowed to televise games at that time.

Basically on Saturday, there are four time windows: 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 7 p.m., and 10 p.m., all ET. Fox picks one of those times every Saturday. During that time, only Fox can televise games (and Fox picks which ones it wants). All the other games that day are at one of the other 3 times (or they are not televised, even locally).

Yesterday the Fox games were at 4 ET. The only games going on at 4 ET were the two Fox was showing.

And his description of the game he was watching (it was a blowout when they left, and closer when they came back) matches the Yankees-Red Sox game on Saturday when the Yanks came from 9-1 down to score 7 runs each in 2 innings in a row.

That's not the game I was watching. We were nowhere near the end of the game.
He meant the final two outs of the White Sox - Mariners game.

I do think if Fox is going to usurp the right of the local Boston and New York channels to broadcast a game involving those teams, the game should be available uninterrupted to the fans in those markets...
You seem to be the only one who got the point being made.

I still say the logic of the "cutting away was fine" people is lacking, and that mine...or "ours", now...isn't.

What you are not getting is that it is not a local broadcast. There is no assurance that a local team will be on Fox locally even if the team is playing at that time.

Your logic is not logic at all. It is a desire. And it is thinking of the game as if it were the NFL, which *does* distribute local games via national outlets.

Fox did the right thing. They covered the historic rather than the mundane.

Yes it is. They make decisions about what to air, locality by locality. They air different things in different localities. They do it every single week. Here's the map for this week. Note the different games in different parts of the country at the same time.

Mid-game cut-ins aside, yes, if the local team is playing during the Fox broadcast window, the Fox affiliates in that team's territory are getting that team's game. Unless you're in a part of the country where teams from more than one city claim you in their territory (like parts of Connecticut with NY and Boston teams, or parts of NJ with NY and Philly teams) and more than one of your teams is playing at that time.

Fox treats its baseball broadcasts like it treats its NFL broadcasts. Different games in different localities at the same time. Every single week.

Evidentially, as this episode proves, you are dead wrong.

Yep. Because the networks, especially Fox, always do the right thing.

No, I think it's BJ and the Bear (without the bear).

No but they did not follow a single "rule" you are claiming exist.

They follow the rule when scheduling the games. I've never seen them not do it. Have you?

Interrupting the scheduled game is something else.

Uh, yes. Rays games have been played during the Fox window and they were not on anywhere.

That's not what I'm talking about (but you're right that I phrased it that way). The Rays know when the Fox window is. It's on them (assuming they're the home team) to schedule a game during it with the knowledge that Fox doesn't want to televise it and that the Rays can't.

I'm talking about a Rays game that Fox is televising, but not in Tampa. IOW, a game that's in the Fox window because Fox put it there.

And they started that way. Then they moved onto an historic event. As they should have. The point is that there is no guarantee that the local team will be shown. As the switch proved.
