Top Rated White Papers and Resources

    I signed up yesterday, and myself and hundreds other got to try it out on last night’s DET-MIN game. Be prepared for a laughable experience.
    The MLB Help forum was immediately flooded with requests on how to get normal TV view, people screaming for refunds, and I don’t mean just a few, I mean EVERYONE!!
    It’s like they have eight people sitting in the stands with stationary (except when their shaking and floating to everywhere except the field) KMart videocams, each assigned a different area, but none afford you to see an entire play. You never see the pitches, last night you couldn’t even get the count or outs, missed entire crucial hits and plays because I had the wrong camera angles.
    A crucial play at home and all I saw was a camera jumping around in the stands.
    I’m telling you, I’ve never seen anything more ridiculous.
    I say, go ahead and sign up, see for yourself…then go to the HELP section, find the address for a REFUND.
