Is There a Method to CBS' March Madness? Fans Want to Know

March 28, 1992

CBS has ruined the NCAA basketball tournament for me. It's not so much because of the unintelligible graphics or inexperienced announcers (they barely have enough talent to cover one game at a time, let alone a dozen).

Rather, it's that they have effectively prevented the viewer from enjoying what March Madness is all about--lots of games. They pick and choose what is to be seen. They grab all of the coverage and parcel it out in bits and pieces. They are destroying what ESPN built, and the viewer is at their mercy. And then, even while games are going on, we are watching three stooges in a studio talking to each other.
