Tiger and the TV networks

Posted on: June 22, 2009 10:01 am
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- What's happening now in the U.S. Open is why some golf fans get irritated with the television networks and their coverage of Tiger Woods.

He's not close to being in contention but remains the center of the final round coverage.

This is when some golf fans start throwing stuff at their sets. They want to see the stories and days of other golfers being told.

Normally the saturated Woods coverage is the correct call. He's Michael Jordan. He's the star of the sport. You follow the stars.

But today? Woods is a spectator and has been all morning. He's a non-factor.

It's one of those few moments when the coverage of Woods is a tad much.

Tiger and the TV networks

You are totally correct on this.  I'm a fan but I want to watch the leaders, there not there often and they deserve some coverage.  I wish the networks (all of them...ESPN) would stop force feeding us there stars we can pick our own.
