Versus Bashing Thread

I'm watching some endless(ly boring) deuce game in the sharapova/dementieva match, and in this one game the wrong score has flashed at the bottom of the screen THREE times. they did this during the petrova/mauresmo match; jumping the gun in long games. more annoying than this is that they've lost their signal a few times in their first few hours (during the first match, they had to cut to commercial and an entire game's worth of play was missed).

i really don't care the championships are not on ESPN, but it would've been nice if the WTA sold the broadcasting rights to a network competent enough to 1) show the match without interruption, and 2) call the score correctly

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

-- Legend, shortly before crushing Vulturepova

Re: Versus Bashing Thread

So damn annoying. And I agree about having a competent network carry coverage. Versus can take a flying leap for all I care. Wta tour tennis is in the doldrums as far as tv coverage is concerned.

Re: Versus Bashing Thread

I thought we'd get different commentators for this shit.
Why'd ever get my hopes up?

Re: Versus Bashing Thread

Versus is new at this. But I'm glad today was live

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

Re: Versus Bashing Thread

I was able to order versus for $4.95 for 30 days. So far I have no complaint.
