Save the NCAA Tournament sign now

Dear NCAA Board of Directors,
This petition is written with the hope that you will cease to televise important sporting events, especially the NCAA Division One Mens Basketball Tournament and Championship, on the CBS network. The reasons why this is imperative are many and wide ranging from a lack of announcing talent to the lower overall quality of the broadcast video. The most egregious of these, however, is the insistence by the CBS Network to inundate their broadcast of high quality sports events with an unending parade of ads and promotionals for their normal programming. The CBS lineup (with the exception of the Price is Right) is made up of shows and network movies which exhibit either a lack of ability (directing, acting or both) or an extremely poor concept. In the majority of cases these programs are so shoddy that the constant infliction of exposure to them (even in only 10 second advertisement segments) has been known to bring about elevated levels of stress and, in some extreme cases, physical pain. For example, during the 2005 NFL AFC Conference Playoffs viewers were subjected to almost an entire hour of advertisement for the CBS series Numbers interspersed throughout the 5-6 hour broadcast of games. This is a show in which the main character is a genius math professor who uses equations and formulas to solve crimes alongside his brother, who is an FBI agent. This show exhibits the prototypical CBS flaws of coupling a show concept, which can best be described as an abomination, with terrible acting performances. We the viewers of the NCAA Tournament would urge you to not allow next years event to be spoiled by the unceasing barrage of ads for CSI: Miami, New York, Las Vegas, Survivor on a new island, another Amazing Race, and Spring Break: Shark Attack as this years tourney was. We, the fans, purchase merchandise, buy tickets, tune in to watch, and cheer for all of the endeavors of the NCAA to encourage great college sports throughout our nation. Please give us something back and stop this horrible cycle.
