Everything looks and sounds great guys. Just one thing,if its possible could you move the score board to the upper right hand corner instead of lower right. As it sits the Riverton Chevy banner covers up the visitors score.

I would sure be nice if the people announcing the games were not so biased!!! They are obviously cheering for all of the southern teams. I noticed this last weekend as well during the 2A boy's games.

Re: luvsports comments about the announcers being biased -- what do you expect? The radio station that serves the towns that the southern schools are in provides the announcers as part of their radio broadcast. If the northern schools want announcers biased their way, they should buy ads and send their local station to cover the games.

I was cheering for S. Summit in their game vs. Gunnison. I think the bias is more a central Utah bias not northern or southern. I think the announcers don't do it purposefully. Most of the radio and live stream guys I've got to know a little are good guys but, when there are questionable calls etc they're going to stick with their team(s). Lastly, I really want to see someone knock of Wasatch Academy and I think S. Sevier is the only team who can, but I haven't seen many of the northern teams play this year. Good luck to all!

I have to agree with luvsports and Me, Myself, and I. It is so so much about being bias but I would rather not listen to personal thoughts and comments throughout the entire game. I simply would like to know who shot, who fowled, and ect. It is also somewhat distracting when every other comment is 'that was a bad call', 'there not the strongest shooters', and 'wow that shot was clearly way off.' Just because you are not announcing to the crowd at the game does not mean there are no fans watching.

Sportfanz I am not sure but I think that the same feed for live streaming is going over the radio as well. That might be why they are trying to give more descriptive color commentary.

I agree that the commentary can be rough to listen to, but don't let that overshadow the video. I quickly found the mute option and appreciate the effort to stream live coverage.

The radio station that broadcast is locally located in Manti/Richfield. It serves these communities. Richfield, Manti, Gunnison, Mt.Pleasant, Salina, So. Sevier (central teams) when Gunnsion plays, the color is done by a local Gunnison person, sponsored by the Gunnison community, therefore, Gunnison pays to have the game on air. The local folk who stay home and listen to the games like all the extra's because they personally know these young people playing and appreciate the details. Some of the announcers even have kids that play. I think they do a pretty good job complimenting the opposing teams. If the opposing teams had their own announcers it wouldn't be any different, or offered a dual sponsorship (Ditto cactus) However, in some situations like the girls Gunnison vs Kanab game yesterday, it was dual sponsored and the radio announcers did a great job being complimentary for both teams! Good Luck to the Gunnison Bulldogs and which ever team (Wasatch or SS) as they advance to play for STATE!!! :)
