    Would it make a difference if several Reds fans (you and some of your friends) actually contacted FSN to let them know that WV is Reds Country, not Pirates? Maybe they don't know this.

    And if that doesn't work, maybe contact some of the Reds people associated with FOX... Chris, George, Thom... and try to get them to go to bat for you.

    I'm serious; you might be surprised at what could result. You can bet that f there are no complaints from the fans, nothing will happen. Give it a shot.

    Might not be a good idea to get George to help. They will end up getting St. Louis games.

    We had Fox Sports Pitsburgh when we had cable now that we have direct tv we have all the fsns. As a matter of a fact I was watching the Pirates game today in 4th block when Jason Bay hit a two run homer in extra innings.

    My parents live in Williamstown and got only FSN Ohio when they had cable; they switched to Dish and have both now. It's strange how the same service in the same area can vary so wildly.

    I think it's safe to say that no place outside of PA is Pirates Country. I get Charleston/Huntington for my local channels and apparently they think everyone likes the Steelers too. Amazingly though, the same stations hate the University of Pittsburgh. I guess that's because of Dubya Vee Phew.

    I have heard that it is the University of South Pittsburgh.

    There are a few Pirates areas outside of western PA, but I think you are right for the most part. I think the Morgantown, WV area is Pirates country, as is the Weirton, WV/Steubenville, OH area. Wheeling, WV also sometimes leans toward the Pirates, but if the Reds are playing well they will throw their allegience to Cincinnati.

    I worked with a guy who grew up in Wheeling, WV, and he said that was Pirates territory. 'course he was in his fifties, so it had been a while.

    Down here, on Armstrong Cable out of Hamlin, we get both the Reds and the Pirates.

    Re: West Virgina Reds Fans....

    I'm originally from Williamson, in the southwest part of WV down on the Kentucky border. The reason cable companies in that region are carrying Fox Sports Pittsburgh is because of the broadcast deals West Virginia and Marshall University have with FS Pitt. Or, at least that's why they carried initially. I assume some of both school's programming is still on there.

    Doesn't make much sense for Marshall, and sucks for Huntington, which is just 2 1/2 hours from Cincy.

    Re: West Virgina Reds Fans....

    What I would like to know is how do these areas on the border decide which team to show. Why would a city like Wheeling get a Reds game over a Pirates game or vice versa or why do they show both? Could someone from the Reds go to that cable company and give them the old hard sell on why they should show the Reds instead of the Bucs? Could they slip them a little under the table? Give them a rate on commercials? Or is it just up to the program director there?

    Marshall is on CSTV exclusively just about now. (CSTV is an acronym for College Sports Television, but since they took over MU broadcasts, the CS part has several variations in Herd Country. )

    My mom is from West Virginia and she doesn't consider Morgantown part of the state.

    Yeah, now that you say that I watched Marshall on CSTV this past season. The FS Pitt deal originally was a few years back.
