Tampa Tribune reporter and new Ralph's Mob member Nicholas Murray
checked into the status of games scheduled to air on Bright House Sports Network
. According to a post on his Twitter page
, Murray reports the station plans to air the Sunday, July 4th game against Miami FC and the Wednesday, Aug. 25th game against the Carolina Railhawks.
He said he will hopefully get more updates on plans to cover other games.
I know a few people have voiced concerns that live coverage of home games could actually hurt the team when it comes to attendance. I believe that even if that is true, it would be offset by the extra marketing done for the team by Brighthouse. Also, having the games televised adds an extra sense of legitimacy to a sports franchise. I was hopeful that BHSN would air all weekend home games, but it looks like the agreement is a lot more limited than that now.
At least we have the 1010 Sports
What do you guys think?
