My (limited) experience has been the same for cable broadcasts of sporting events in Canada on Rogers 3D.
The Rogers 3D channel is mostly a rotating loop of crap 3D. Over the past year they've broadcast a few events, like the NHL Winter Classic, and they've look complete garbage on my Sony TV. Everything about their broadcasts have looked bad (poor resolution and brutal ghosting).
My concern is that they do a few of these broadcasts as a test, get poor results, and then decide that 3D is a failure.
I'm with you. I'd prefer they just wait until they can do it right. I am still holding out hope that the Sensio 3D format could be a partial solution at least as far as the resolution goes (i.e., being able to stream 3D in blu-ray quality over internet and cable). Sensio is launching their 3D VOD service next week. Hopefully if successful it can eventually be expanded.
Unfortunately (for my pocketbook) the current state of 3D broadcasting has meant relying solely on 3D blu-ray movies and PS3 gaming for my 3D fix for now.
