  1. I could see this. Flo was trying to bust into the Major League Soccer streaming business with DC United and Cincinnati while making overtures to other teams and the league itself. The whole thing was done on promises that they'd be doing specialized content, features, match day things pre and post game, etc. The day of the first game came for Flo to cover and the entire first half was missing because...we never did learn why. It was almost like it was halftime and someone at Flo remembered, "oh yeah, some soccer thing" and hit a switch somewhere. They offered refunds and the like and subsequent games were streamed fairly well. But the additional content and such never materialized. Then completely out of the blue, DC United announced they were ending the contract with one game left on Flo's schedule. DC streamed it for free on their website. No word on any lawsuits regarding 'breach of contract' from either way about that. Flo also had Big Ten network's "BTN Plus" content streaming at one point, now that's back over on its own app an BTN's regular channel is streamed through the Fox Sports Go app. Both of these seem to indicate Flo tried to expand into all sorts of areas and markets of streaming without actually laying out the infrastructure, staffing, and such to make good on their promises (something DCI could have probably told them...) and it's starting to collapse as the 'big streaming players' are leaving those hasty deals. That would prime some company who is ready to do it to hop in there and start sniping particular contracts. Varsity getting in there would make sense. I do wonder if they'd go for WGI before trying to take on DCI and BOA though given that the logistics of streaming from a gym are probably easier than a football field.
  2. Did they come in a brightly neon colored box? Cause the packaging should be at least as loud as the commercials.
  3. Heh. I liked the first two cheer movies because they’re was so much carryover in the dynamics of cheer and band. While I was never into cheer, the moments of traditions, camps, social pressures, passion, creativity, performances, team building, resilience, being largely misunderstood by those outside of the activity, etc. were all instantly familiar.
  4. So Genesis went too far for you then?
  5. There may be a moratorium on Mannequin use after the Cadets show...
  6. Hmm. By this reasoning, if Bloo really wants to have their ensemble in the pit, they could use one of those electronic woodwind instruments and classify it as electronics then? Or would that be 'too close for comfort?"
  7. It drew a gasp out of me too. I was like, "no....he didn't...."
  8. Nah, this goes back to their first season covering and some guy who inferred that the Cavaliers could train their corps harder because they were all guys....he was gone by the next week.
  9. I'm also wondering if the financial considerations (whether they be backlash in the form of pulled donations or increased costs) trumped the designers desire for a 'new toy' musically here given that it passed instructors caucus and then failed.
  10. So. That's over for a couple years. Does Bloo's counter proposal tip their hand that they were on the pro-WW side of things? Will this incur backlash? Will FloMarching send 'investigative reporters' to create stories and get fired within a week for making comments that draw criticism? Winter storylines could be juicy!
  11. No idea, but probably. But the utter lack of demand for them and the thousands of empty seats in the stadium doesn't say much for the future of tickets sales either.
  12. Fair enough. It seems kinda serious this time though. Ticket prices for NFL games not against teams near by were going for like $4 by the end of the season. Games against nearby teams were going for more because the demand was actually coming from away fans. Dannyboy's pocket might be feeling the reality. I don't really follow the sport anymore anyway. it's just something that comes up on the news.
  13. Local CBS News down here in DC had more coverage of "can't wait for the Ravens game" hype than "the DC team is firing errrybody" news.
