Yes, you will get my bracket this week. But after that “bracket reveal show”, I had to write this up.
As of writing this, I didn’t even watch the entire show. I already knew it was going to be dull and boring. They decided to change something that has worked for years, only to watch it crumble on itself.
In previous years, the show would consist of the hosts releasing the brackets section by section, and then giving a little bit of analysis about them. This was how you would find out who made the tourney, while seeing the bracket at the same time.
BEFORE, it was a perfect format. It was concise, to the point, and wasn’t stretched out.
But now, NOW they list the whole damn field at the beginning of the show…….in alphabetical order.
It was like watching paint dry. It took away from the suspense of which team made it, and just made it dull.
Then, the hosts just rattled off the brackets one by one, making sure to get them revealed as soon as possible.
This is where I decided to stop watching it. Because, if I could guess it, the final hour and a half would consist of constant rambling and BS about all the games coming up.
There was literally NOTHING wrong with the show over the years. It got the job done, the “experts” got their two cents in, and that was that. Now, with the most important part of the show wrapping up in under an hour; it wouldn’t surprise me if the ratings plummeted faster than……….well ever.
And if you don’t believe me, check social media. When people, like myself, don’t agree with something……..they take to twitter.
So, big media companies, you need to change this for next year! It’s best for everyone.
Do you agree that the changes to the show were bad? Let me know in the comments below, or on one of Weekly Sports World’s various social media accounts;
