    Tired of Getting ****ted on By Iowa Sports Stations

    I'll keep this brief:

    We get all the KC Chiefs games, a majority a Saint Louis Blues game, practically all the Cardinals games, plus radio access to the White Sox and the Cubs. On top of that, KXNO is going to have some Royals games.

    F that! I mean seriously! Are we Iowa, or Missouri-Lite mixed with some Chicago wannabes?

    I wouldn't be that ticked about it if I could stream my teams online, but Iowa is a blackout zone for my teams. If they're going to be a blackout zone, then broadcast some mofo games!

    I apologize for the rant, but I am extremely ticked off!


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Marty and Miller are such boobs. Especially Miller who has been bashing Pollard the last month....Until they attend an even with Jaime present. Miller doesn't utter a peep at that time.

    I think all those guys agree with you M&M hinted that radio station could cut ties with the Royals if they are back in the division by August. I think everyone agrees that the the Twins would have been nice to have on the radio.

    Yep. I was very disappointed they chose the Royals over the Twins. They lost a listener here!

    Re: Tired of Getting ****ted on By Iowa Sports Stations

    Or the Cardinals....seriously it had to be about money with the other clubs. Who listens to the Royals?

    KXNO doesnt even have a national update in the afternoon now. I know things are rough for ISU fans but now KXNO is running promos ripping on ISU and rubbing our nose in the problems in Ames. I still cannot believe they dont have the daily John Walters Cyclone update on KXNO either.

    Sounds like the karma gods are with you, I havent heard a word out of kxno in 15 minutes. Either that or the Joan Miller show came on early.

    Re: Tired of Getting ****ted on By Iowa Sports Stations

    How many MLB teams are available by radio in the DSM market? Cubs and Royals now?

    If so, MLB should remove the blackout restrictions for the other teams.

    Re: Tired of Getting ****ted on By Iowa Sports Stations

    The sports coverage around here is awful, period. KXNO and the local tv stations should not hitch their wagon to just one pro team. Since Iowa doesn't have a pro sports team they can't claim that any team is a home team, and a station should never play only one team unless it is a home team. Seriously, they are alienating a bunch of sports fans by doing this.

    Within a days drive of Des Moines
    NFL- Bears, Chiefs, Rams, Vikings, Packers, Bronco's, Colts, Lions
    MLB- White sox, Cubs, Twins, Royals, Brewers, Cardinals, Rockies, Tigers
    NBA- Nuggets, Bulls, Timberwolves, Bucks, Grizzlies, Thunder, Pacers, Pistons

    There are more teams you could reach in a day- but it would be a very long day.

    What? Shouldn't a station be able broadcast any team that they think is in their economic interest?

    So 1350 AM shouldn't be allowed to play Cubs games b/c they are in Chicago and it isn't "fair" to you.

    Re: Tired of Getting ****ted on By Iowa Sports Stations

    Their economic best interest is to play an array of games that will attract fans for all walks. To be honest, I don't care about baseball or the NBA, and I never listen to the NFL on the radio unless I'm in the car and it is the only thing worth listening to.

    I don't know anything about 1350, but KXNO is always claiming that they want to be Des Moines sport station. If that is true, the worst thing that they could do is hook up with Kansas City. That goes for KCCI as well.
