    Quoted from pinwiztom:

    If the ACL can get their Southern Cornhole Championships on TV,
    Pinball should be able to,

    Why? Cornhole is played by so many times more people and so many more demographic groups. When I first saw cornhole on TV, I even mentioned that it was the nail in the coffin of pinball ever being on TV in any real way. Face it, pinball will never, ever be mainstream enough to be on TV. Especially not live. It will also never make it as a reality show.

    Next time you are watching the National Pinball Championship streaming live and notice there are only 150 people watching, you will understand why ESPN made the decision that they did. I see complete bullshit twitch channels with idiotic sounding people talking over some shooter game with thousands of people streaming.

    One of the things missing from pinball streaming is the sound. Also, ever notice how modern pinball machines shown in movies all have chimes like an EM instead of the real sounds. Putting 2 and 2 together, there might also be problems showing any tournament games with licensed themes on ESPN. Imagine the C&D letters coming from Planetary on that one?
