Hard to argue with you guys. If you really believe that Fox Sports thinks they would get better World Series ratings with the Tigers , from the broken down, failed city of Detroit, than they would from Boston and Red Sox Nation across the country, then you know little or nothing about business. Your credibility is zero. I would hope they are impartial, but no way in this world does Fox prefer the Tigers over the Red Sox in the Series. Please try to be realistic.
Lol. Zero credibility? Haha. Right bro. Anyhow, ever hear about propping up a city to put it in a better light? You obviously know nothing of politics or national perspectives and how the media plays into that. YOU have zero credibility. It's easy to argue with people online, and especially more entertaining when those people are so out of touch with reality that they can't see or hear the truth. That's fine man. There are a ton of people out there who see it for what it is. I could care less, because the team will win that's the best. And they did. If you think the media is impartial or doesn't have agendas then you are sorely mistaken. It just amazing to hear someobe who supposedly didn't hear the bias. When there are others that in numbers that outweigh you did. Might tell you something. Your smart. Oh, and could it possibly have anything to do with getting the best hitter ever and the best pitcher since Sandy Koufax a World Series ring? Nah, wouldn't have anything to do with it.
With all due respect, you are the one not in touch with reality. This has nothing to do with politics, or propping up a city. This is about ratings, about viewers, about sponsors, about money. It has nothing to do with the media. It has nothing to do with national perspectives, whatever that is. It has nothing to do with World Series rings. It has everything to do with which team will attract the most viewers to the World Series telecasts. That team is the Red Sox. And , Fox Sports knows that better than we do. They have no agenda to favor the Tigers. The only thing you are right about is that the best team won. Have a nice day.
Not in touch with reality? Pretty sure I'm more in touch with reality as you like to say, than you could ever aspire to attain. Yes national perceptions. Detroit is a dump. Fraudulent and driven into the ground. No one wants to hear about an American city in that bad of shape. At least the politicians don't. They got it into that state. So you try to gloss it over with the Tigers. It's an oportunity at the very least. Detroit is a huge market, current state of affairs not withstanding. The ratings, the viewers, the sponsor and the money as you put it, are driven by their promotion. Easier to trump up Cabrera(last years Triple Crown winner) Verlander(Cy Young MVP) Sherzer (presumptive Cy Young award winner), and the "weapon" as your boy Timmy likes to say Iglesias (for bouncing a DP ball in the dirt) are much more attractive to the general public than the no name Red Sox are. Outside of Ortiz they have no one of any national note. Pedey maybe. Pales in comparison. They are trying to attract other teams fans to watch the WS as well, not just markets. Worst for them, Cards/Red Sox redux. They got the worst case scenario. Which I'm happy about.
Telling someone that they are out of touch with reality is quite a leap for someone who obviously is oblivious to the truth. And that's fine. I could debate you all day long, and while interesting for a while, would end up being quite ordinary.
