said Kyle W. name.

They are doing a pretty good job

The later announcers are better.  And it does make a big
difference in how much fun the games are to watch.  It's
definitely not easy to do.

How well the second announcers did just proves the earlier
complaints were justified. They can find good announcers,
they just need to try.

Well this is a completely different production. The first
set of games had different camera crews and completely
different production values. The question now is why the
earlier games didn't have the same value.

The announcers need to mute their mics when they are trying
to figure out what happened.  The feldmen bid, turn over,
toe in (called out, but it was in), hammer callahan was a
disaster for the film/announcing crew.

The quality is awesome though and so is the bandwidth.  This
is sweet cstv.

Yep, it sure is nice being able to watch these games without the video
buffering every 30 seconds.

Daag, that is just your connection, no buffering ever for
me. Silky smooth.

Sorry, I wasn't being sarcastic. I had a perfect video watching
experience today. I was referring to problems I (and many others) had
with previous years' streaming video coverage. This year's coverage
was a million billion times better in almost every single way.

Oh agreed, past streams have been utterly awful. This year
was much improved. My bad.

It's a double edged sword.  On the one hand you have huge
improvements over the years to the live viewing broadcast.
On the other hand self officiation looks really awkward on a
live broadcast when the announcers have to figure out what's
going on and have to fill dead space while the players walk
around the field with their elbows at the waist and hands at
their shoulders.

Agreed that was definitely the low point of the game and it
was my mistake.  We had flipped to a replay of the Feldman
block which we were watching on the monitors and when I
looked up the movement on the field looked like a goal had
been scored (Wisco cheering/Colorado looking dejected).  It
was a timeout but I called a goal and then I think everyone
got pretty thrown off.  Hopefully they can manage that well
in post-production so it looks good on TV.  That was a very
exciting sequence of events.    

As for the mics, keep in mind that the primary purpose of
these webcasts is for the TV event in a few weeks (these are
live to tape).  The webcast is secondary - so sometimes we
talk in time that we know will be cut.  We've got headphones
on so Brent and I can't easily talk any other way.  

Brent Stover (the play by play guy) is actually completely
new to Ultimate.  He'd never seen it before Friday.  I think
he's doing a great job with the calls and if you think so
too, you should let USA Ultimate know that we should try to
keep him.

Hi Kyle,

You and Brent did a great job today. My only criticism is
with the tone of the broadcast. I understand that the game
was exciting, but it seemed like you and Brent were
practically hyperventilating the entire time. Broadcasters
should definitely get e***d when it's appropriate but
maintain an even tone during down time, in between points,
and during call discussions. I guess i just felt like you
both were so amped up at times that the dialogue lacked
thoughtfulness.
