I think I managed to catch all the local post game coverage. Here's how it grades out: KTVU-2 - Joe Fonzi obviously wasn't ready for a match of this magnitude. He had himself locked into a 5-minute segment with Joe Montana and didn't clear sufficient space to tell the whole story. Still, he did show highlight of Faria's Golden Goal and pumped the fact that we're home to KC next Saturday night. GRADE: B- KRON-4 - God love Vernon Glenn...in a relatively short sportscast he tried to explain the playoff format and the context of the match before going to the highlights...and, of course his mind was boggled by the details as are we all. Outstanding highlight package included Vagenas' goal to make the aggregate 0-4, Roner's goal to tie at 4, and Faria's Golden Goal. The highlights were running too fast for him and he mispronounced every player's name...but that's OK. Then he packaged Landon's post-game comments with highlights of his goal as well...then pumped Saturday night's Conference Final. GRADE: A-...read the pronouncers in the media packet and you get an A KPIX-5 - Dennis O'Donnell has a 30-minute Sunday sportscast and treated the game like an afterthought. He buried the game highlights behind Bull Riding highlights! Only highlighted the Faria Golden Goal. However, KPIX was the only station to run all 3 MLS results on its lower-screen crawl...but didn't put any of the other matches in context. GRADE: D+ KGO-7 - Given their past ignorance of the home side, this was a step-up performance. Mike Shumann's highlight package included both Roner & Faria's goals (again, both names were mispronounced), and he did pump next Saturday's Conference Final. Plus, their lower-screen crawl ran the score and the result of the series, the only station to do that. GRADE: B+ - showing great improvement. KNTV-11 - Raj Mathai is a straight clown. As documented in other threads, he spent much of his Sports Sunday show buffooning with outgoing SF Mayor Willie Brown (on a sports show?) and mugging with former 49er Ronnie Lott. In the show's final segment he tried to get to the story ("a great game at Spartan Stadium...and we mean it") but didn't leave himself enough time to tell it -- he began to run through the playoff context, but by the time he looked at his highlight monitor Faria was scoring the Golden Goal and he had to cut the rap short. He did get in a good snipe at the "confusing" playoff system, and also did mention the Saturday Conference Final. But burying the story that deep loses points with us. GRADE: C- But boy did those confetti cannons look good on the highlights of the Golden Goal.
