This game is the Omega Processing game of the week on nkysports.com.

 

Just wondering as I sometimes do but I just wonder how much NKysports.com pays Holy Cross or any HS team, to allow them to bring these games live via video. I mean, when you show a game via video, you are losing more than a few casual fans, who just might attend the game if there were no video and yes each and every dollar earned, means a lot to HS sport programs.

^^ I'll trade the positive exposure for a few lost fans. I view it more a public service to those who cannot make it to the game - grads, grandparents, casual fans, out-of-town relarives, military, etc - than a financial loser for the home team. The replays are also archived so the players themselves can go home and watch the game now, and in the future.

 

Yes.NoKySports is a for-profit business. Ben Blesser started this years ago as a pay-to-listen service, which didn't pan out, so he got sponsored up and has been doing the NoKySports audio/video broadcasts with a great deal of success.

 

There used to be two - NoKySports.com and TriStateInternetSports. Unfortunately, the latter has gone out of business, leaving NoKySports the only remaining outlet commercially broadcasting high school sports.

 

I simply think we should be thankful that they are there to promote our NoKy high school sports events.

I believe Omega Processing pays for it they are the sponsor.

To the bold, who doesn't have hudl now days for the players to review film?

 

If NKysports makes a profit, then the schools should share in that profit, as without a game, NKysports doesn't have a product to sell to earn that profit.
