But, to keep this related to HD, at least calls, right or wrong, are clearer than ever.
well actually I agree with both of your posts-a good fair rating of the game & the players' performance.
and the game looked stunning on ESPN2-HD. with large field sports like futbol & rugby if only we had native 1080p-bliss!! and yeah bring on FSC-HD!!!
there is a BBC S-F series(Torchwood) that's on both BBC America AND HDNet this fall. so maybe the Prem in HD is not too far behind....?
CONMEBOL does have some pretty dodgy refs-I should have said they seem, overall, to put their better ones in tournaments & hi-profile friendlies. I did watch the Copa & didn't see any real howlers. yeah the state of refs world-wide seems REAL questionable this year.
oh BTW it's Benny Feilhaber. kid's very good but apparently not getting much playing time at Derby right now-sadly, it showed.
