My thought was that unless you follow the tweets of a lot of people at a game, you're not going to get the same kind of info-dump as a sports journalist interpreting what's happening on the pitch.
EDIT 40 however I will brighten the tone of those comments so the thread doesn't get eeled.
You know, really... probably what's happening here is this: a bunch of players have started twittering in the past few months, it's been the subject of a bunch of news stories in the sports media, and now a bunch of college presidents who have no idea what twitter is are going "wait... people are doing what at games? can't we do something about that?" It'll all shake out after these stupid regs obviously fail and espn and cbs figure out how they can co-opt it.
I'm sure you're right. The worry is that this will start an avalanche of similar addenda to copyright laws in other media. I'm sure it's unenforceable, but the worry is that this will lead to companies researching ways to make it enforceable. I just want the internet to remain as free as possible, as we all do.
Sales of sports packages are a major force behind satellite tv and radio, there's pay-per-view in boxing (and now mma I think?)
