Can't watch State Games- who do you blame???

Recommended Posts

If you're mad you can;t watch the state games, complain to Sinclair. It’s that conglomerate that is super pro Trump and makes their news stations read propaganda about rigged elections. They acquired the regional sports networks when Fox merged with another huge company last year and had to sell off certain assets to get around antitrust laws. Since then they have demanded an outrageous amount from the TV providers. Never seen all of them say no before, so you know it’s not any one provider that’s holding this up.

 

Who's ready for 2024???

I receive Foxsports Southwest via Spectrum cable. I am able to watch the games.

Didn't know there was a wide spread problem.

I’m on Direct TV.  We get the games.  Change providers.  

I'm not caveman! I cut the cord long ago to save over a $100 a month.  Would you mind sharing with me your Direct TV login and password for the weekend, so I can watch the games?  I can stream through your provider, that would be awesome!  You can PM it to me, Thank you!

Go check out the scripted propaganda that every single Sinclair News outlet repeats word for word.  A simple Google search will lead you to it.  Not petty, just aware!

 

Go Coogs!!!

You're not aware of much of anything. It's easy to realize from your posts on this page. Go read a KFDM post, they're owned by Sinclair, then come try to tell us they're "pro-Trump."

Google KFDM election coverage, and see how many stories pop up about a rigged election.  

Got the Coogs in another tight one! Go Big RED!!!

It's tough to argue with the unaware who just spew idiocy to see who will believe them. I hope you find a way to watch the game.

This is deplorable.  There needs to be some impeaching behind this. Getting to where a man can't even lie anymore.

But yet here you are wanting to take advantage of someone else, who in your words is a caveman. And you expect a login and password. Here you go...

I understand saving money, believe me.  The current problem with Covid limits our options a lot, so my wife & I spend more time in front of the idiot box (TV) than prior to this bonafide cluster fudge.  If I had a login & password for it (and hadn’t forgot it, like so many other logins & passwords), I’d be happy to share.  Hopefully you can find a relative or friend that wants to watch it also, and you can join them.  Otherwise, take solace in the fact that you have an extra $100 dollars this month that I don’t have.

    • This may or may not be interesting to some people. I thought about this when talking about incidents in Orange County and Port Arthur. It is about police jurisdiction in Texas. Neither the Texas Penal Code nor the Code of Criminal Procedures (CCP) (which lists the authority to arrest) distinguishes between on and off duty peace officers. It states in what situations a peace officer has the authority to make an arrest but makes no other distinction. That is why people often say that Texas peace officers are on duty 24 hours a day. The law is not stated in those words but the Texas law does not note any kind of difference. The authority to make an arrest by a Texas peace officer is continuous. The CCP under authority to arrest without a warrant (Chapter 14) extends to outside the officer’s jurisdiction except class C traffic charges (basic citations like speeding, running stop sign , etc.) which authority is only “if the offense is committed in the county or counties in which the municipality employing the peace officer is located”. So the CCP gives the authority to arrest as anywhere except for traffic citations which is limited to anywhere in the county that the officer works. Port Arthur has jurisdiction then for traffic citations anywhere in Jefferson or Orange County. If a citation (or arrest) is made in those situations, the officer who is outside of his city has to issue the citation to the proper county precinct. For example a Port Arthur officer can issue a traffic citation in Bridge City but has to issue it in the jurisdiction of the Orange County Justice of the Peace for that precinct. An even further distance example is for instance if a Port Arthur officer was driving through Little Cypress to speak with a witness about something and saw somebody run a stop sign. The officer has the authority to issue a citation to that person or even make an arrest and bring the person to the Orange County jail.  The CCP also says that if a business serves the public it “may not prohibit or otherwise restrict a peace officer or special investigator from carrying on the establishment's premises a weapon that the peace officer or special investigator is otherwise authorized to carry, regardless of whether the peace officer or special investigator (a special investigator under Texas law is a federal agent such as FBI, DEA, etc.) is engaged in the actual discharge of the officer's or investigator's duties while carrying the weapon”. Note that it is regardless if the officer is engaged to an actual discharge of duty. That is basically saying off duty. The NFL a few years ago made a rule that firearms were prohibited in their stadiums by anyone except for an on duty police officer. But…. that does not apply in Texas as officers have 24 hour arrest authority anywhere in the state and that specific law that I quoted above which says it is against the law to stop them from entering. So off duty Texas peace officers can watch Dallas Cowboys or Houston Texans football games while carrying their off-duty handgun. To my knowledge that is the only NFL stadiums in the country where a police officers can carry their weapons off duty. The stadiums have a special point of entry at one of the entrance gates where on duty officers hired to work the event check the credentials of the off duty officer and note where the officer will be sitting. I have also done that at Minute Maid stadium for MLB.  So….. in Texas pretty much a cop is a cop no matter when or where. Game wardens, city police, county sheriffs and deputies, constables and deputies, school district police, DA investigator, fire department arson investigators, etc., are all listed as Peace Officers and even though they are hired to do a specific job, they have overall police powers. It is not that way in all states which sometimes distinguish between on and off duty, jurisdiction and what laws they can enforce. In Texas as an example a Texas game warden can make a traffic stop just as if he was a city police officer or a DPS trooper and make an arrest for DWI. City officer can likewise go into an alcohol licensed premises and enforce Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission laws just as if he was state TABC agent. In fact I was inspecting a bar one time and the bartender got in my way and told me to stop. He said that I did not have the authority to make  the inspection since I was not a TABC agent. I explained the law to him and said I was not going to interfere with his business but I was going to make my inspection. Twice more he interfered with my inspection so I arrested him on the spot. TABC suspended the bar’s alcohol license for 14 days (think of the money they lost) and the bartender received 14 days in the county jail for the interference.  Interesting? Not interesting? I do not always agree with the laws just as much as anyone else but I think the way that it functions is interesting. 
    • If it doesn't kill ya it'll make you stronger, the old saying goes.    Who knows? Maybe an efficient and very good slow down team, like Argyle, catches FF napping in the playoffs.
    • Back in the day when Beaumont had Central & Ozen a good Silsbee team could and did run the table in the golden triangle.  Now, with most of the talent headed to BU it is next to impossible to pull that off again.   P.S  Living in the past, I miss Devon McCain pulling a rebound and then coming down hill center court, with superior passing skills, throwing dimes to either  Bush or Jay5. Or he'd take it to the hole himself.  At the high school level that was very potent stuff.    
    • Silsbee is a great team but lets not get to far ahead, Bush, Adams or McCain isn't walking through that door next Tuesday, And even if they did I don't think any of them would be the best player on the court honestly.  But that's Okay, like another poster stated, the main thing for Silsbee is to get better each week and compete for a 4A title.  I do think it will be a very competitive game, and I love that we have two top ranked teams in the State right here in SETX.  Here's to an injury free and successful season for both teams 
    • For sure.  He is super talented in both but that looks to be the higher and more certain path.  As it generally is for someone who excels in both.
