KC/Jays on SN?

I posed a question on here minutes ago and the question was deleted. Why?

Well, since this question about my original question has not been deleted after a half hour, I will repeat my original question. I was wondering why SportsNet was not permitted to show today"s Kansas - Toronto game on TV? It was going across the screen that MLB was permitting them to air the game on SportsNet Radio but not TV.

Now I have 2 questions.

Your post was not deleted. It was moved to another thread (in error). It has since been deleted since you started this thread. If you ever can't find your post go to quick links - my posts, or similar depending on your browser/device.

"Recent Discussions"

Thanks him810ce for the answer to my original question.

Blue Jays games shown on Facebook only could be a sign of things to come | CBC Sports

The screenshot of the game is ridiculous - who would want to watch with a bunch of comments and emojis flying all over the screen?

This will suck especially since the reputation of facebook has gone downhill and many people closing/deleting their accounts. what about the people not on facebook? they like blujays too.

The facebook coverage of the game was well done, once I found it in the 7th inning, and I fed it to my TV. I don't really enjoy watching on my laptop or phone, unless the power is off or I am away from home. This may get sports fans back on facebook, if they left. I agree with Inglewood that the comments running across the screen will have to be kept to a minimum.

I'm sure some people like the comments/emojis on the screen, but if Facebook had an option to turn them off, it would be better for fans who like a standard viewing experience.

There was an option to turn them off. Both on mobile and laptop. IIRC it was swipe right on mobile and two menu clicks on laptops.

a lot of people I know who have left facebook will refuse to go back on and want another way to watch the blue jay games without having to give a single piece of personal information ever again to marc zuckerberg and his friends at Facebook (remember when it was called TheFacebook.com and the napster guy told Marc to Drop the "The")

Tell them just to create a burner account for one-time use. Not really that big of a deal.
