    The nerve of some people! Not willing to put out their own time, money and effort to video and stream a meet so some anonymous people on the internet can sit and home and watch for free (and then bitch about the quality of the coverage)?

    What is this world coming to?

    BRO it's a high school meet. You're right..what is this world coming to..honestly. You can find Diamond League feeds for free why not OFSAA?

    Some people have the most unnecessary attitude out there.

    Just curious then BRO, if you as the consumer are not willing to pay, then specifically who do you think should pay to provide you with that free content and why?

    From a business standpoint, Wouldn`t it have been a better business plan to create a package that was worthy of subscription(Free Live Meet Coverage for this year for example) then charge as you grow your customer base and created a demand.. The subscription plan is also not well thought out and not well thought out.Good Luck with it though

    Quite possible. If their business plan is truly poorly thought-out and people like you, Bro and myself choose not to purchase their product, then they'll have to re-evaluate or pull out of the market.

    But that does not change the fact that several here claim it is 'stupid' that they are not simply giving their product away, because, well, dangit, people demand free things.

    (Hasn't Runnerspace been providing free coverage of meets for the past few years already? What is the difference between that and the free coverage you want for another year?)

    Because Obvious because there was no test run there are currently bandwidth problems. I pay my way anywhere i go and do not need handouts like you MAY be insinuating. For the record, I purchased the service.. My point is not seeing content you paid for because of bandwidth problems and no commentary to make for better viewing is not a pleasant viewing experience. A product with the bugs worked would not have viewers kicked out because of server problems for example. A pleasant viewing experience would have viewers gladly spreading the word for and gladly paying for in the future.

    If we in the Track and Field community dropped our arrogant ways we would cease to be the bottom of the barrel as a sport. Like I said. Good Luck with it but a good business mind would know to listen to the customer and not chastise them.

    Well, it was free before for the last number of years so whether it's right or not, it does set a certain expectation. At least, it would be helpful if they had a plan to pay as go instead having to subscribe for a year or more. Most of us don't have kids running in more the just the high school events so it's not worth it to pay for something that will only be watched once or twice and is < 3 minutes long.

    I bought the live feed but it lags so much and is terrible because of that. I miss so many races because it just gives out for 30seconds and won't come back no matter what i try...and my home internet is great.

    You are still mixing up two different topics.

    Just because the product for sale is of poor quality (for which it is your choice whether or not to pay the asked price) does not inherently mean you deserve or should expect the product to be provided to you for free.

    Why not let the market drive this question? If they charge too much or provide a crappy product, then their sales will show that and they can clean up their act, lower their pricing/change their pricing model or throw in the towel.

    If you have paid and are not receiving what was understood you should be getting, then go ahead and bitch about it. Market reaction often leads to business change.

    But if you haven't ponied up any dough, how do you justify your expectation that you deserve to get their product (regardless of quality) for free? It still costs someone to provide the product so again, who do you think should pay for it if not the end consumer?

    What I find somewhat wrong about it is as athletes on a highschool level...a profit is being made off our performance. Yes, I understand all eligible athletes signed saying that they agree to having film and photography taken but I find it somewhat wrong that it is expect that we pay, to see ourselves.

    Get someone to share a link to the video with you on facebook. The you do not have to pay for it. Loopholes are wonderful, aren't they?

    Just a note.......Runnerspace did not pay to have the right to video the events at OFSAA, so, I don't believe they should have the right to charge for it.

    Because paying for the broadcast rights is the only cost they'd have?

    Their cameras, computers, internet connection, website hosting, travel, accommodations, meals and time spent for anyone involved in the broadcast are completely free and paid for by magic fairies?

    C'mon guys, it costs like eight bucks to get a plus account at runners space and see all the videos. Heck you probably paid sixty bucks to buy a hoodie at OFSAA!

    I wouldn't mind Runnerspace plus if the video player wasn't literally the shittiest one on the internet. Seriously, porn sites have a far superior video player.

    It was hosted by a Catholic School. Every OFSAA I have been to hosted by a Catholic School has been opened with a blessing / prayer.

    If you don't like it, you are not forced to listen or participate in the opening ceremonies.

    It was hosted by a Catholic School so they opened with a prayer. Every OFSAA I have been too (Volleyball, Cross Country or Track) hosted by a Catholic School has done the same.

    I'm not Catholic, but it doesn't bother me....If you don't like it, you don't have to listen.
