WRAL crawler madness
Does anyone at WRAL actually look at the outgoing signal with all their crawlers during BBall games? Today it was completely laughable -- competing crawls. The national feed was running a crawler about Dean Smith's death, and WRAL had to do a "me too" crawler about it. There was at least once that both crawlers were running and you got over-under nearly in sync crawlers about it.
Guys, come on. What is it about a BBall game that brings out WRAL's inner "crawler madness"? I would love to see a game, any game, where WRAL manages to *not* run a crawler for two whole hours. Not about the weather. Not about where and when the preempted programs are going to be rebroadcast, not about how to set up my DVR for said preempted programs, not about breaking news events.
I just want to watch the game. Is that really too much to ask?
Yes, I know I can rotate the antenna and watch G'boro. But WRAL has upped their signal quality while G'boro has declined, especially their audio seems less that it was a few years ago. So I'd rather watch my home town station.
If they'll just let me. Sigh...
