    Default ROOT Sports...

    Is terrible. I know the channel itself is pretty much exactly the same, but wow are the promos awful. Dump the fake yinzer accent guy ASAP. I'm willing to bet that guy doesn't even live in Pittsburgh.

    Lacee is also really bad.

    I almost really feel bad for Lacee. she reminds me of the NFL sideline reporter. Completely frickin' useless but an excuse to employ a female. They give them these garbage questions and "facts" just so you can see and hear another voice.

    the promo's are really bad. If it were for luckily being able to see enough of the joe and Randi promo I'd probably be more irate over the crappiness of the root promos but...

    ...from a marketing standpoint, they are "Winning". Twitter has been a buzz over Root if it's good, bad, Lacee etc... A thread is started here..

    The only bad promotion is promotion that was never attempted

    .... From what little I've seen during Pirate games, I like it..... But I'm not there 24/7 in the burgh to offer a solid critique....

    I will say one thing, the graphics are awesome. The promos are cheesy but I can deal with them. The amount of commercials for the actual network better decrease a month from now after the name is out there. I think the graphics and the presentation are top notch. The yinzer voice is just annoying as is the dialogue he has in commercials, as they come off as arrogant and sad.

    Defintiely the graphics have been decent. Id say that the things they added like the strike zone graphic are cool except that JNN pointed out that other local channels have had this feature for a while. Us Pittsburghers are simply playing catchup.

    I think it's all par the course. They are going to milk the promo of the new name and any changes right now during the turnover and simply fade those away

    Isn't the "yinzer voice" that tool Paul Alexander?

    For starters, it's about the worst name for a sports network that I can think of. It's like they went to a first grade class and asked them to submit ideas for a sports channel name. I hope those kids enjoyed their sippy cups.

    It'll just be so nice when Mario buys the Pirates and they can then make an all Pittsburgh sports channel...
