This morning I was going through my news feed when I decided to take a moment to watch a couple of videos before trudging along through another day at work. Oftentimes, I'll fill my head with useless minutia just to give me something to talk about at the water cooler. Anyway, just before I got started YouTube put up one of those advertisements that I usually gloss over. This time, however, I found myself a bit captivated. Instead of a commercial about car insurance, I was regaled with an anti - SportsNet LA/Dodger/press/Blackout campaign.
It's certainly is not your run-of-the-mill commercial. In fact, it clearly is a fan made video, and said fan must have paid some money put it up on their advertising rotation. Otherwise, I would never have seen it. For that, I thought it was worth sharing. Check it out below.
The guy above is Brian McDaniel and he is on twitter.
The Dodgers are destroying, but Greed is keeping 70% of fans from being able to enjoy one of the best teams LA has ever had. #ITFDB— Brian McDaniel (@brianfmcdaniel) May 13, 2015
@BillShaikin please continue to press the issue of Dodgers' broadcast, you're the only reporter who's taken this seriously IMO. #ITFDB— Brian McDaniel (@brianfmcdaniel) May 18, 2015
I have no idea if McDaniel's campaign will lead to anything, but I love the determination. BTW, McDaniel also calls for a fan "blackout" of not just the Dodgers but of the press/media/bloggers - who, in his mind, have not been the pressing the issue strong enough. Of course, that includes this little blog, so I endeavor to do better. (On a side note, I'm hardly read enough to cause a dent, though.)
