On the second day of Christmas, the Cosmos gave their fans:
-Two TV deals,
-And a new stadium in Belmont!
While no wish could likely be greater for a Cosmos fan than their own stadium, the floor could be open for what might be a close second.
For this Cosmos fan, the team’s exposure on television is my second priority. While ONE world sports has done well covering the team and puts forth the best coverage of matches in the league, it’s doesn’t quite have the distribution reach that the Cosmos might need at this time. In a market where Red Bull matches have seen coverage via NBC and where NYCFC will likely gain airtime on the YES network, the Cosmos will need to boost their presence on TV especially in the NYC market
For this reason it would be nice to see the team partner up with a second affiliate whether locally or nationally. Even if they secured one match a month on one of the major networks, like a Fox or even NBC, the exposure for the team would be sure to go far.
I recall years ago when the World Wrestling Federation was trying to make an impact to audiences, they would do an occasional broadcast on NBC on Saturday nights which would go by the name of “Saturday Night Main Event”. The Cosmos could look to do something similar. Perhaps call it “Saturday Night Soccer”. Whatever the solution might be, a second TV deal in addition to ONE World Sports is something I would like to see in 2015 and something I think the Cosmos NEED!
