Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

As another W'er who works in TV, I'll say this: I heard of Sinclair long before I ever heard of ROH. And that's for all the wrong reasons.

This will not be good for ROH in the long run. They made a deal with a bad company.

As bad as Sinclair might be, it seems like the alternative might have been no ROH. The current owners were obviously looking to get out, we don't know what other offers they might have had, but I don't think a ROH fan can begrudge them of getting the best deal they could get. Lesser ROH may still be better than no ROH.

The ROH TV show is supposed to be one hour Saturday nights (9-10 or 10-11) on most Sinclair markets. If there's network programming at that time, they'll be moved to Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Meltzer said the first few months of TV tapings will be done as if none of the people watching know who anyone of the ROH wrestlers are and everywhere will be reintroduced. Which is seems a repeat of where they were back with HDNet. They goal is to build to a point where ROH running regularly in the markets where they air, some new places. The hope is they'd be able to syndicate the show to other markets down the line. But they have to do well for the Sinclair stations first.

First, did anyone know who the six guys who judged the bodybuilding contest were? I expect they were local indy workers, just curious if we should know any of them for any reason...
