Maybe there were no other proposals, because there was not another group wanting to do it? If BBQ TV or others had wanted to do it, I would think they would have asked. Or, If KCBS were worried about equal time for folks that might want to broadcast... KCBS could have offered to open it to be broadcast by multiple organizaitons. In actuality it should help the event grow, not shrink.... folks that are unable to attend, could watch it, and get excited to come to the next one. I don't see how the conclusion could be made that it would cut the throat of the event. But obviously the board acted unanimously... so there had to be something driving it. oh well... Not the outcome I expected , but not surprised.
Thanks for the frank commentary Gene. I wholeheartedly disagree with the thought process, but appreciate you sharing it.
