Just wanted to let you know that I read all your blog posts about the production. I have yet to be able to watch a stream (busy most weekends), and was wondering if they've impoved at all in the last few weeks.

I agree with all of the above. Since a few of the highlights have appeared on ESPN as it is, I don't think getting it on ESPN 3 would be a tough sell. Also, it was a nice gesture to make week 1-4 rebroadcasts free, but unless I'm crazy (and I very well may be), those links are broken... Sad

Great post, very insightful. Hopefully it will continue to run smoother. Did you watch week 2 or week 3 games and notice a difference/improvement? I have yet to watch a game but plan to.

I appreciate your enthusiasm for the sport but disagree with your rule changes. Maybe they just need a clarification.

1.) Pushing and shoving receivers is a bad idea. Much like football, this would obviously be considered pass interference. Sure there is some jostling, but any more would take away the spirit of the game. Also, even if you timed the contact for the exact moment the disc was touched, the danger and player safety hazards outweighs the benefits. Some of these guys have vertical leaps over 40", and a push or shove could easily be turned into a severe injury. Remember, ultimate players aren't wearing pads to protect them like football and hockey.

2.) Subs on the fly would not be a good idea for multiple reasons. If there is a long point, stamina comes into play, and that should be used as an advantage. Since there is a lot more scoring in Ultimate than hockey or football, subs on the fly isn't needed. Also, teams could utilize on the fly subs to make tremendous matchup advantages. At a high level of play, its just not applicable.

3.) I don't really understand what you are trying to say here. Sorry. What would it bounce off of if not the ground?

4.) The penalty system may need to have some tweaks, but overall it serves its purpose. Remember they are still trying to keep ultimate, ultimate. The spirit of the game still largely rules.
