What is going on down there? What did the Super Chicken run?

    Maybe its me but somethings wrong with the web cast. It seems they have overlapping commercials with water ski adds mixed in with the generic Ustream ones. Its so bad its pretty much un-watchable.

    I'm stoked that Moomba as a live stream. I totally understand that there trying to give a lot of screen time to the sponsors, but like @disland said its almost unwatchable. There showing the same loop of sponsors between every slalom pass or trick pass...

    Watched a very little bit at work this afternoon. Seems every time I clicked in there was an ad on so I gave up. From past webcast I assume ads mean that it's down time between events. I understand there strategy, but I don't think it's going to work.

    They are playing commercials all the time. Between passes during passes.... All the time. If you pay I think they go away. I just turn it on and listen to the audio. It's great! Superchicken wins Moomba with [email protected] I think.

    It has been playing much better for me after the break. Still dont care for the commercials. This being my first time watching I would really like a bit more in the way of coverage, replays and whatnot.

    Maybe they're listening. It's been good as it gets later. Don't know what it takes to run a replay, but sure would be nice to have a replay or two instead of immediately cutting to commercial. The sponsors are getting plenty air time. They cut almost immediately to ads after a fall. I guess that's part of it, but I hope we get some replay in the big rounds to come

    Don't hold your breath on anything changing for the big rounds. The Moomba webcast hasn't changed in several years. Looks like they are trying to do an HD feed this year without also sending out lower bitrate video. That's gonna increase the dropouts for many viewers.

    Wow, the women are having a tough time coming from the bridge side in the semi's.

    If my math is correct men's simi final is at 9:00pm eastern. Did anything interesting happened in round 1?
    In gear. Hit It. Thank You!

    Nick Parsons just missed out, based on how ties are resolved. (Without runoffs, but by
    seeding, perhaps needed because of time restrictions on use of the river.)
  • Bill22Bill22 Posts: 1,620 Crazy Baller
    The ads during a pass are back. Thursday night I watch the women ski and no ads during ski time.
    In gear. Hit It. Thank You!

    Looks like a 3 way tie in mens semis [email protected] for Nate Fred and Will. And 2 tied in womens semis [email protected] for Manon and Whitney

    @ALPJr I am surprised no one has commented on that tie with the men being equal to the course record, also held by CP.

    Who will be the first to get a piece of 4 ball at -41/36 (10.25/58k) ???
    In gear. Hit It. Thank You!

    @Chad_Scott yeah it looked like Nate had a good 2 ball and got to 3 in good shape.

    Womens final then mens final starting at 9:30pm eastern 6:30 pacific.

    Edit: @dhofert good catch, 10:30pm
    In gear. Hit It. Thank You!
  • dhofertdhofert Posts: 215 Baller
    Womens final is at 10:30est thanks to daylight savings crap. Unless they have changed from the schedule on the website.

    and yeah, the adverts are a bit bonkers. Understand that pays the bills but man, this is worse than a football game on CBS.
