Has either of these events ever been televised, taped-delay or live? It seems to me the Outdoors or Sportsman's Channel would cover these events. Even if it was tape-delayed and they had all 10 series compacted into one hour long show. I would think, with Purina and others, that sponsorship money could make this happen. It just seems crazy to me, especially after seeing the FT cost thread, that a sport like this isn't televised. Is it because of shot flyers and PETA? If this is the case maybe that explains why the SRS has been televised and not either of these. Or is it because judges might come under too much scrutiny after the fact? Or are there other reasons I'm unaware of? Cameras can't be an issue. Heck, if cameras can stay out of golfers' way and still track that little white ball in flight (to the point you feel like you're riding atop the ball at times), then surely they can hide cameras and still capture dog work. Sure, play by play may be a little boring but I've been a golfer all my life and still think golf analysts are boring....especially Johnny Miller....sorry, I digress.
Maybe it has been tried and didn't work. I'm new to the sport and really don't know. However, I do feel that if it was televised, especially on one of the two mentioned channels, it could grow the sport.
What am I missing?
