I contacted my local affiliate about yesterday’s oversight and they sent back a kind reply. The game will be rebroadcast Tuesday night during some dead time.
A few people emailed to say that for local affliates, nationwide feeds usually carry national ad space and cause local channels to lose money, which is probably the case here, though I still think it was a very poor decision. I first called the station, and the switch operator sounded like I was just one of many that called to complain about the game not being on. With the women’s soccer league on the brink of shutdown, and Title 9 laws under constant attack, women’s sports have a tough go of it in this country, so it’s good to hear people still care about the games.
