Will be interesting indeed to see what, if anything, is announced at the upcoming Media Day on the 25th. Speaking of ESPN-3, I remain hopeful that at minimum the CAA can work a deal moving forward to start utilizing that platform for FB along with all other sports.

I don't know if the Comcast/NBC Regional Networks such as CSN-MA are dumping their association with televising a CAA GOTW. I believe last season was their last doing CAA MBB so it won't surprise me if that is the case.

I mean... we all essentially realized that by February really. That was when the last CAA TV Deal was announced, by march 1st, we were already late.

If the is no CAA television deal (ESPN3 or otherwise), that is a massive issue.

It would hasten our desire for FBS imo. You can't get ZERO exposure and hope to grow the program.

MVFC ESPN3 deal

SoCon ESPN3 deal

Southland ESPN3 deal

Hell... one SLC school, Stephen F Austin, even secured an ESPN3 package for damn near their entire athletic program BY THEMSELVES!

I'm sure there are other examples in FCS I'm missing.

It's unacceptable that the CAA can't lock up what the MVFC and SoCon have, let alone the friggin SLC. Are you kidding me?!

Were they that pissed about our NBC Sports deal that they've blacklisted us forever?

JMU is monitoring the situation and waiting for the TV contract negotiations with other conferences to stabilize before accepting phone calls from prospective networks. I don't know what more they can be expected to do but go ahead and keep grinding your axe.

Yes, ESPN blacklisted us.

Well, other than that one time they brought Gameday to town.

They can't get the hell over it now that we no longer have a contract with them and have a new, significantly better commissioner? Tom Yeager is gone.

New CAA TV deal in the works
Today marks the deepest into a calendar year that caa football has had to go without ANY tv schedule released, at least since the NBC sports network deal signed in 2012.

I'm more of an "Fcs defender" than some on here, but even this has me saying..... Wow. Just wow.

The biggest thing to measure the new commissioner on and he's got nothing to show for it.

To add insult to injury... looks like Stretch updated whatever media player they're using and no longer support Apple Airplay. 04-chairshot03-banghead01-wingedeagle

Just found the following in the help section, "If you're wishing to view the broadcasts on your TV, we suggest using AppleTV to wirelessly stream content from a Mac or Apple mobile device"

TOO BAD YOU TOOK IT AWAY!!!!!!!!!
