How is it decided which games to webcast? I was really hoping to see West Side vs Declo.

Location has a lot to do with it. Where we already have guys scheduled. Availability of crews week to week.

I was thinking maybe it had to do with team sponsors or the interest in the game. Thank you to Idaho Sports and everyone involved. I appreciate being able to watch games all over the state.

Those things definitely are considerations, especially interest in the game. While we always like to NOT lose money doing games, we've done it hundreds of times over the last 12 years in order to webcast a game we think we should. Since the state contract changed, we have had to be a bit more picky than we were before when it comes to making sure regular season games are as "paid for" as possible. If a team has a few "Power Boosters" (banner advertisers on their team pages) we definitely try to schedule games for those schools.

Hopefully in a couple of more years the state wakes up and realizes the mistake that they made....

Well... this is year two of five, so it will be more than a couple, if ever.

I thought that they could reevaluate it after 3?

I do not believe that to be the case. -DJ
