GO TORNADOES!!!!! Although the webcast is a good idea. We have had MATV in this city for years. What is the problem with them doing a live braodcast of the game? There are a lot of people in this city that are unable to attend, ie; the elderly. And contrary to popular belief, not everyone uses a computer either. A live broadcast on MATV is long overdue in my eyes. I know they show the game taped at a later date, so they are there, why not live? I really don't think it would cut down on the attendance at the game. Just a thought.

I'm with Greg on this one -- MATV should be broadcasting the game. As for MATV, yes I know they'll be there broadcasting the game for future replay -- would be NICE if one of their channels ran a schedule of what will be playing when! I can't seem to find any information on when the replay will be broadcast, nor any information on the promo stuff they were filming recently w/ the Malden players & cheerleaders.
