What idiocy. This league is so dysfunctional.

The CPBL must be very difficult to deal with. VL channel couldn't deal with them, MP & Silva couldn't deal with them. I read on Yahoo! Sports Taiwan that Fox is being considered.

Well, I recall you calling this one, Chung-san. At least, I recall you saying that it'd be the fans who would lose in this deal, and that's looking more likely.

The league's dysfunctionality may actually be a blessing. Broadcasters are going to continue broadcasting so long as they're getting the feed, and it doesn't appear that anybody in the league knows how to stop the feed.

Three cheers for disfunctionality! Hurah! Hurah!

I'm not an expert on sports marketing and distribution rights, so perhaps you can fill me in.

The CPBL's move in ditching VL Sports and choosing the less-accessibile MOD. What was the logic behind that? I simply don't get it. It seems like you'd want games in as many TVs as possible. Did MP & Silva have anything to do with that decision?
