  1. The broadcasters used would be the Severino and Holly since they are Marlins employees and they would be at the stadium once COVID-19 passes. Youtube is using MLB Network’s resources because this is considered a national telecast.
  2. Google could make a deal with local cable/satellite companies and offer the Marlins more money with the plethora of available cash they have. Streaming on Youtube on the go would be more reliable than Fox Sports GO.
  3. Sherman and Jeter should ask if YouTube wants to bid on the local TV rights to Marlins games, Google definitely has the ability and a boatload of cash to make a great bid.
  4. Sherman and Jeter should ask if YouTube wants to bid on the local TV rights to Marlins games, Google definitely has the technical ability and funds to make a great bid. The Fox RSN’s are horribly run outside of Marlins, Heat and Panthers programming. The nonsensical useless drivel that airs outside of Marlins programming is what is holding our ratings down. It is cheap programming that is worse than watching paint dry. Sherman and Jeter should look at the programming schedule that Jeff Krolik thought was acceptable the past 10 years. Just Look at Fox RSN’s Programming Schedule o

  6. I’m glad we’re playing the AL East again next year. MLB should have East vs. East, Central vs. Central, West vs. West every year, better for building rivalries and TV ratings. The calendar looks weird in May and Sept. Lots of midweek Home and Home’s.
  7. Hi Everyone, I have created a FREE March Madness Bracket Competition for Miami Sports Fans like ourselves. It has a upset bonus feature by adding the seed number on top of the base score. You can join by clicking the link below. Go to Join a Public Pool, then go to Miami Sports Fans on the list of Public Pools. http://www.poolhost.com/joinpool/1/53556/heat2013
  8. When YouTube TV says they “are no longer offering Fox RSN’s in some areas” they are no longer offering YES Network (Yankees), Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket (Angels), or Fox Sports Midwest (Cardinals). They will also not be carrying the recently launched Marquee Network (Cubs)
  9. Sinclair’s RSNs are becoming less available to watch. Removal takes effect February 29th.
  10. Jazz Chisholm and Victor Victor Mesa will also make an appearance mid-game. This is the first time most fans will see JJ Bleday as well.
  11. I still don’t understand why West Palm Beach gets their own ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX affiliates. West Palm Beach is still in the Miami MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area). It’s like Oakland getting it’s own TV Market from San Francisco, Fort Worth from Dallas, Anaheim from LA (etc.).Telemundo and Univision have one station for all of South Florida (Indian River County to Key West). A combined Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach TV Market would be the 6TH Largest TV Market in America. We would be up with the Cubs, Phillies, and Rangers and ahead of the Red Sox, Giants, and Nationals. Sinclai
  12. Bad News Source: John Wall Street Section of Sports Illustrated The Miami Marlins television deal with Fox Sports Florida expires at the end of the 2020 season and despite talk of "ongoing, serious negotiations" it is feasible - if not increasingly likely - that the existing pact could reach its term without an extension in place. Prior to the sale of the franchise in 2017, the club’s former leadership team presented Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter with a proposal for an extension that “called for a rights fee beginning north of $50 million, with some up-front payments in 2019 and 2020.” B
  13. When I first read this, I though it was from The Onion. Apparently this is the Rays sales pitch to Tampa-St. Pete residents for supporting the split season idea. [MEDIA=twitter]1225805439188766724[/MEDIA] So comical I had to put it in the main thread. No better way to rally support for an idea than to insult your own city and fanbase.
  14. [MEDIA=twitter]1224821937043578886[/MEDIA] Marlins are reportedly staying with 940 WINZ as flagship radio station. Interesting since they can’t be heard in some of Broward and all of Palm Beach County at night (Probably inquired with Entercom’s 790 The Ticket and 560 The Joe and there were no takers) They have improved lately by adding 1230 WBZT in West Palm as an affiliate. The organization needs to work on adding affiliates in Fort Myers-Naples, Treasure Coast, and Orlando. Note: If you have an HD Radio (most newer cars) you can listen to 940 WINZ on: 94.9 HD2 and 105.9 HD2 Miami Rad

  16. If Sinclair can’t at least match that deal, the organization should walk. The upfront payments in the deal would have made a big difference in making the club a contender immediately, the payments were probably in the $10-30 Million range. If we can’t get a streaming deal, I’m sure Comcast would love to bid on the Marlins TV rights and launch NBC Sports Miami.
  17. The team could absolutely have kept Rich and T Hut. When the Cubs move their TV broadcasts from NBC Sports Chicago to Marquee they automatically keep their play-by-play and color commentator as long as their under contract with the team. Same with Vin Scully when the Dodgers moved from Fox Sports West and KCAL to Sportsnet LA over half a decade ago.
  18. Not only is your prediction correct, it’s now being backed up by the numbers that have recently been released. A couple of years ago, this was introduced as a possibility but many were shrugging it off. It’s now reality. In this new environment, if you can’t get the money via rights fees you go to local broadcast stations and take less money in exchange for brand exposure. For many of us over 35 years old, our first memories of watching baseball were: The Braves on WTBS The Cubs on WGN and WGN America The Yankees on WWOR The Mets on WPIX The Dodgers on KCAL and the list goes on...
  19. The Royals had an average annual value of $25 Million in their previous TV deal. In their new 10-15 year TV deal the AAV will be $50 Million. The Marlins are now receiving about $18-20 Million per year. If we extrapolate using the new Royals TV contract at a 100% increase the Marlins would only get $36-40 Million over a 10 year deal. In contrast, WGN paid the Cubs $250,000 per game from 2015-2019. That is 162 x $250,000= $40 Million per year. Even in the smaller Miami Market we could get $27-35 Million to go on OTA TV only (WPLG, WSVN, etc.) and syndicate to WPB, Fort Myers, Orlando,
  20. Also, Dish Network and fuboTV have dropped the Fox RSNs. This results in lower advertisement rates along with the decrease in subscriber revenue.
  21. The 25-35 games on OTA broadcast stations would provide more brand exposure than what we have now on cable with Fox Sports Florida. The ratings prove being on OTA Broadcast TV is better than being on cable. 10PM Ratings (# of households) WSVN: 250,000-300,000 WPLG: 150,000-250,000 Fox Sports Florida: 19,000 Plus you can put games on WSCV (Telemundo) which gets 300,000+ households nightly and provides a way for the team to bolster it’s Hispanic marketing campaign. So we can have 500,000 households watching the Marlins in the future instead of 19,000, plus an additional $20 Million
  22. Sinclair might be getting cold feet because of the performance of the team in the past few years. If these are there options: Sinclair (Fox Sports Florida): 10 Year Deal $40 Million 1st Year, $70 Million 10th Year ESPN+: 5 Year Deal $65 Million 1st Year, $85 Million 5th Year If those are the scenarios you go with ESPN+. If we get $20 Million more to go to a streaming provider you have to take it, that’s an Ace starter or a power bat. Plus, as part of the deal you can set aside 25 games to go on OTA TV (WTVJ, WPLG, WSVN, WFOR, syndicate to WPB, Fort Myers, Orlando, Jacksonville), this wo
  23. At this stage of the negotiations, the Marlins should be close to an agreement with Fox Sports Florida by now. They have been negotiating with Fox Sports Florida since 2017 when Jeter & Co. took over. If they haven’t made significant progress in the last 27 months then it’s unlikely that they will come to an agreement. The reason why the quote is concerning is because it indicates that they aren’t close to an agreement and are beginning to look at other options.
  24. On the 2020 Bold Predictions Thread I posted that my off-field prediction was that the Marlins would sign with a streaming service (ESPN+, Amazon Prime, etc.). Many have asked questions since and I’m posting this thread to answer some of those questions. Q1: Hm, where'd you hear that? I mean, I'm not surprised, but curious where you're hearing it. The Marlins posted a statement earlier in the off-season that distanced themselves from a speedy renewal with Fox Sports Florida. The statement said that the: Marlins are determined "to find the right partner to deliver the right product to
