Sidelines 2012 – 02 – 03

Welcome to this SuperBowl edition of Sidelines! But only because the game is Sunday, I predict a boringly efficient game, and I really don’t care which of Tom or Eli gets another ring. Wouldn’t you rather see Ray Lewis and Patrick Willis headlining this game than possibly the frailest quarterbacks around?  Anyways, I digress…

This week on Sidelines:

U23s!

The international scene

NYNY v Big Brother

Sidelines 2012 – 01 – 21

Welcome! To the second Sidelines of 2012, which is shaping up to be quite a year. The AUDL, the NGN, the end of the world, it’s even an election year. (Colbert/Stewart 2012! Hey South Carolina, a vote for Herman Cain is a vote for Colbert, just saying.) Bob was right, the times they are a-changin’.

 

This week on Sidelines:

Ultimate Digg

Sidelines 2012 – 01 – 06

Happy doomsyear! 2012 is upon us, so let’s make the most of it. My new years resolution: go to at least one tournament I’ve never been to. Achievable I think. But enough about me, if there’s one thing I’d like to see achieved this year, it’s filling the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan come August 12. Big goings on in the Ultimate Frisbee world these days, and I mean BIG. This week on Sidelines:

Memories of WUCC 2010

Stanford v Alumni, Timbits style

NGN – NexGen Network

After the fantastic NexGen Tour this past summer many of us wondered what the crew were up to, what were their plans for the new year.  I asked Kevin, and the crew, as much in Sarasota and was told that something was in the works.  That something has now been announced and it’s the NexGen Network.

The NexGen crew plan on continuing bringing us the best video Ultimate coverage possible as well as live broadcasts but they need a bit of help first.  Tournaments are expensive to air and they’re hoping to raise $20,000 for the first two.  As somebody who has broadcast previously I can tell you that even a single camera setup is quite expensive and that they plan on covering two tournaments with three cameras.

So, if you enjoyed the work they did and want to see more then donate a little, just a bit, to their Kickstarter campaign.
