I don't live in the general vicinity of the group, (Iowa), so no, I've 
not been in the loop. I was just responding to the post as it was sent 
via the public list.

I know Jeff just asked for recommendations on vendors to consider to 
offer the service, and so all of my comments are somewhat tangential.

That said, a number of the responses seem overly defensive given the 
spirit in which I offered up the note of caution.  I'm not on the 
advisory committee, board, any leadership position in the group. I do 
feel it important to participate in the group discussions and provide 
input as someone who is distant from the event, and I attend the event 
when possible, which is my reason for list subscription.

I have no horse in this race.  The potential concerns I raised will not 
affect me if they come to pass. Except for the possibility of getting 
access to the live feeds while I attend in person, I'm not sure I am 
affected in any way by this effort. And, I align with the concept in 
general, so I have no philosophical issues with the idea.

And, as noted, Jeff didn't really ask a question about the desirability 
of PPV live feeds, so I perhaps should expect a worthy defense.  But, it 
does temper my willingness to provide alternate perspectives.

I mean no disrespect to the valiant volunteers who produce the show and 
the live and recorded material. As someone helping to produce similar 
material in the Midwest, I apologize for ruffling feathers. I can do no 
better in the areas I mention, which is why I hesitated to surface them.
