LACK OF INTEREST: In S.F., Eric Branch notes of Sunday’s 49ers-Jaguars game in London, “A quick scan through the newspapers at Heathrow Airport revealed only a few paragraphs about the upcoming annihilation, um, game.” Another plausible explanation for the “collective media yawn, of course, is that nobody gives a flip about an NFL game five days away when [EPL clubs] Arsenal and Chelsea both played real football Tuesday night” (S.F. CHRONICLE, 10/23).
CRUNCH TIME: In Syracuse, Lindsay Kramer noted that although no TV deal between Time Warner Cable and the AHL Syracuse Crunch for a “package of games this season has been announced yet, the team is optimistic that one will be reached soon.” Crunch COO Jim Sarosy said that “negotiations are ongoing and there could be an agreement in the near future.” Kramer noted in past seasons, “at least part of a broadcast package was settled by the time the season started” (SYRACUSE.com, 10/22).
