    WOI ABC 5 = FAIL

    While channel 5 has always been the absolute worst broadcaster for picture quality, tonight's game broadcast takes the cake. Seriously, ESPN360 streams ten times better over the internet than ABC 5 can deliver over the air. This is like watching the entire game recorded on a cell phone.

    Granted, I'm picky, but I think my parent's have a VHS camcorder from the early 90's that would probably create a better picture than this crap.

    I agree. I think my Canon point and shoot could match, if not outperform, this video quality.

    And yes, I know something is better than nothing and we should all support WOI for even broadcasting the games, but come on. At what point does a station feel embarrassed for the product they put out?

    Re: WOI ABC 5 = FAIL

    As frustrating as it is when someone who is not hitting shots keeps shooting, I also hate it when an open guy (JVB) misses a shot and then is wide open on the next trip and doesn't shoot.

    Whoops, wrong thread...

    I don't have a tuner on the computer at the moment but just picture what your grade school games looked like on VHS and it would be pretty much on par with WOI lately.

    Cake your TV screen in vaseline, and you'll get a pretty good idea.

    WOI is like a fat girl wearing biking shorts. You just keep looking at them and think to yourself "WTF, can't you see what you look like?".

    I agree, but I would raise the stakes and say they're like the fat girl wearing a thong

    Re: WOI ABC 5 = FAIL

    For those of you with Dish Network, the game is also on channel 452 (Altitude, I think). Picture still isn't amazing, but I think it is a little better (could just be my eyes though ;) )
