ESPN may broadcast Albany State football twice
« on: July 13, 2019, 12:32:17 AM »
The Albany State Golden Rams football team may have the cameras of ESPN on them twice this season with an agreement made between the network and the (SIAC) Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, according to a press release from the SIAC.
ESPN’s standing partnership with the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) continues in 2019-20 with a five-game slate featured exclusively on ESPN3 for the third consecutive season,The conference championship is set for  November 16 and the winners of the SIAC East will host the championship game this year. That means if the Golden Rams repeat at the SIAC East champs again this season, the Rams will host the title game and ESPN will come to Albany to televise the game. Besides Albany State, the other schools in the SIAC are Benedict College, Fort Valley State University, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, and the newest addition - Savannah State University.
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with ESPN,” said Gregory Moore, Commissioner, SIAC. “This year’s games will feature intriguing matchups and an extremely competitive landscape which, coupled with our passionate fan following that has helped the SIAC lead NCAA Division II in average football attendance for the 16th consecutive year makes ESPN an outstanding platform to provide SIAC member schools and student-athletes with additional exposure opportunities.”

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
