I can’t believe how these people can’t get their shit together to tell us correct broadcast times. (The PBR website has been wrong about re-broadcast times several times in the past.)
Previously, according to the PBR website, the Greensboro 15/15 supposedly was scheduled for 1-2 pm EST today on CBS (regular TV). PBR email I got today says 3 or 5 pm, check local listings. PBR website now says 3 pm CBS, 7 pm NBC Sports. (I assume the 7 pm is a re-broadcast.) I just checked CBS & CBS Sports schedule on their website(s). NO mention of it on regular CBS TV site. CBSSports website says 5-6 pm EST.
There is no excuse for this crap. Either you’re a professional organization or you’re not. Don’t tell me the PBR doesn’t have a contract with CBS, CBS Sports, NBC, and NBC Sports spelling out SOME kind of schedule?? If they don’t, they need new lawyers.
It’s somewhat understandable (but not much) if a major league football game goes into overtime and runs into the PBR event broadcast time. But it is NOT understandable how their own website can be so WRONG so many times. Getting a last minute email about what time the event is on is NOT helpful to those of us who have lives, and would like to know when an event REALLY is on so we don’t miss it. Maybe the PBR should pay for me to have Tivo, considering how much free publicity I give them.
To some bull riding fans, the PBR home stretch is just as important as any football game, and it is just infuriating (not to mention stupid) that they can’t do better than this about keeping the information straight. If CBSSports or NBCSports are constantly jerking them around with scheduling, again, the PBR needs to GET BETTER LAWYERS. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten wrong scheduling information from the CBR, or at least very rarely.
I guess I’ll be tuning into GAC more often.
