Where we sit the substitution announcements have always been garbled and still are.
Can somebody update me on what RSL social media did that has The RSL Show guys so incensed?
Don’t have the socials but it sounds like the tone from Trey is spreading
Kudos to the owners/FO for the sound system upgrade. The National Anthem was clear and synched stadium-wide. For the first time in ages we could hear the substitution announcements.
Has anyone ever listened to the RSL postgame show on KSL radio? On my car radio there is no problem. On my iPhone tonight it plays about a minute of the show and then a series of commercials play. I don’t know how many because I shut it down after 4. This has happened twice now. Does anyone know a way to get around it?
Do iPhones allow ad blockers? Not sure if that would even work though.
Back when I was a sth, I'd use the TuneIn radio app to listen. Never had commercials that I recall. Although that was years ago so that may have changed. If anything you could just stream the audio from their website?
I listen to it via podcast the next morning
Where do you find it…the KSL radio website? I ask because I can’t find it there.
Anyone else noticing how GD loud the new sound system is at the stadium? We have sat in section 25 for over a decade and with the new system we have to yell just to hear each other when we are just sitting next to each other. The decibels averaged over 91 during the pregame and up to 109.
Yes I'm old but it still sucks. Neve had the issue before.
KSL podcasts on the Podcast app
I found the page. Thank you!
Season tickets renew tomorrow. Seems early to me.
First game attended in person after several years' absence.
I was pleasantly surprised by the increased atmosphere tweaks with the red lights under the canopies and a lot of the painted branding, etc. on the walls. Nice touches.
Ok, though, now I have to rant although it borders on being political and I try to avoid those sticky-wickets on this site.
What a joke of a halftime activity. They had a young man and a young woman of approximately the same age dribble a ball from half and race to shoot it in the north-end goal. The young man was clearly faster and took an on-frame shot just for Leo to block the shot while the young lady came from behind and made a goal with no effort on Leo's part to try and block her shot. Everyone cheers and they give a jersey to the young lady. The young man was obviously distressed by the unfairness and injustice of it all, but did they give him a jersey and a pat on the back with some quiet lesson on chivalry, etc.? No, just a firm hand on the back from Leo as he's escorted off the field.
Now, I get that it's just two little kids and a jersey, but what if I'm that boy's parent? How do I explain that the girl was given a jersey just because that's the way it is? And we wonder about higher suicide rates in males and why there are now more female college graduates than male college graduates. How many other subtle life lessons are we giving boys along the way that performing at your best will not get you anywhere and it is better to just go along to get along?
Before you think I am a raging misogynist, know that I have two daughters and no sons and I want to provide every opportunity for my daughters. However, I don't want the expectations for them to be lowered so that when they are successful that it comes with an asterisk that it was not really a level playing field. I also think that women can be successful in their own right and it does not have to be at the expense of men. It is not a zero-sum game.
They should've run two races. One with two boys and one with two girls and all this nonsense would've been eliminated.
They gave them both jerseys
I think whoever got their first was gonna be blocked no matter what just to give a “chance” to the second place person
I hope that's true. I didn't see them give one to the young man, just some cajoling and a pat on the back. I will back down and assume you had a better view of it or that I looked away at the wrong moment.
I think it’s a lot to extrapolate from a halftime show even if he didn’t get the jersey
not to say the topics you bring up aren’t worth discussing, I just wouldn’t use that moment as the catalyst
