I have mixed feelings on this. I think (hope?) they'll at least have one game per week on CBS broadcast, which is huge. But I'm worried they'll put the rest behind a paywall like TNT did this year.

"SBJ also reports that the games will air on the CBS, CBS Sports Network and CBS' streaming service, "All Access." "

Sounds like 1 on CBS, 1 on CBSSN, the rest behind a paywall. Not too shabby.

Thats great. Especially considering the more appealing games are typically broadcast on the flagship channel.

the only sports properties I watch that are on CBS channels are SEC FB/BB and NFL games. maybe they'll have a roster of Spanish commentators who will handle some of the english commentary duties in the interim. 

 

in studio production should be as good as NBC's an better than Fox.

2 NASL Soccer Bowls:
https://en.m.wikiped...NASL_Final_1974
https://en.m.wikiped...Soccer_Bowl_'75
CBS broadcast the debut of Pelé with the Cosmos,
to a reported 10 million viewers.
I was not one of them, because I was at the game! 😁.

Wiki says CBS broadcast the 1974 World Cup.
I remember watching the final match, but not the network.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Former Metro Legend Albert Celades ... in Valencia.


Legend? Perhaps bright spot in our worst season:

P.S. Pulisic scores, after VAR review!

huge, gritty (and most importantly) shutout win for Atleti today @ home vs Liverpool - and this despite being without Joao Felix. Hope he is back at 100% for the next round. I can see Atleti playing a rough 1-1 draw away at Anfield to advance.

The Polish ref in the LFC/Atleti game was HORRENDOUS. That being said, LFC didn't play well, and Atleti got the early goal and sat on it. Should have been 2, but Morata is a dunce. Hopefully another magical night at Anfield to move on..
