No, it is still lame, sorry guys, same way it is lame that the only Bassmaster episodes available other than the classic only go back to like 2008. When it changed into the elites.
I get the "conflict" I get that they want to get what they are paying for in the world of advertising... I get it... But if you don't think the old episodes draw attention when somebody is going to visit a lake and looking up past episodes your crazy. And lets be honest, how many of the marking things are still working, yes there is the big previous sponsor... yes it annoys me that legal part of things gets in the way of the spirit of the thing.
I love some of the changes, I LOVE the hd. I love that it is alive and well. And in my opinion the web coverage provided is second to none, I wish every show would do it the way yall do.
But I know for a fact there were old episodes online on youtube going WAY back... It took effort to remove them... they are somewhere I HOPE. You don't need to reformat, we know what we are getting lol.
Heck I would pay to have ALL the episodes pressed on a DVD... Separated by season. If you could get it where nobody was "MAKING" money, just paying for costs then I don't see what the problem is. I mean I can't go back and watch my buddy catch his 10 on joe pool, and I can't go back and drool when Bill and MC caught about every big fish in the lake on Carolina rigs on (ray hubbard? it was 2012 season I think)
And those are just off the top of my head, and I'm YOUNG. Yeah it would be a labor of love to organize and I guess for it to actually happen you would have to edit out all the commercials... I know NOTHING about editing or I would look into it... Idk we have a Mac that's all you need right?
I get that your trying to move forward and I support and appreciate that. But there is a difference in embracing your past... and admitting there is a past lol. Bill does a great job with the intro to the show now with the brief lesson.
I'm not mad, I'm not trying to offend anybody... I'm just being honest about it.
