    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    I have personally seen John Madden Football being played competitively on ESPN.
    I don't know man. Seems like they'll show anything. I could see pinball sandwiched between the Tetherball Championships and tractor pulls at 1 am, couldn't you?

    Madden Football esports are light years ahead of pinball in both viewership and prize money. We're talking views in the millions with Twitch and TV combined. Prize money in the 6 figures.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Do you watch that on TV or twitch?

    Neither

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    See this is what I'm talking about. I'm much more interested in hearing what we could rip off from "successful" esports than I am in hearing about how esports are successful and pinball cannot be.
    I've sampled enough of the "big" esports to know the commentators yell a lot and don't try to emulate baseball commentary. So that's I do.
    Anybody got any other ideas?

    Honestly, I think making pinball similar to esports presentation wise is a mistake. Pinball presented much in the way and editing that poker or Crossfit present themselves would fit the narrative much better. I'd even take it a step further, to have no more than a single caster that knows what they're talking about and can keep up with the action. The presentation would be much cleaner and crisp for the viewer compared to 2-4 people talking over and stumbling over each other when the action is very fast under the glass.
