I hope everyone in the Ultimate World (meaning USA Ultimate) will take a FIFA-like stand and not let the media (CBS or other wise) change the way the game is played. What do I mean? No one on the field holding up play so a commercial can be completed. No TV timeouts, not interrupting the times between points, etc. US as players and coaches really don't have a say when it comes to negotiating these items, but all of you in Boulder do. I hope I am not the only one watching and playing sports who is tired of 15 timeouts per game so the media can sell ads. If they want to televise our sport, "our great sport", then show the game the way it is played, the way that we play it, not the way they want us to play it so that they can sell ads. If they can't figure out how to do that then they should call FOX SOCCER NETWORK. They do it all the time. That's my opinion, if anyone cares.
