View Full Version : redskins radio on the internet

The only way i can follow the skins games is on triplexespnradio.com. But they have such a long delay, it's almost 4 PLAYS. Does anyone know why that is?

Well last night, I was listening to triplex and 102.1, and also watching the GameCenter on nfl.com. I usually found that the radio announcers were about 2 seconds behind each plays' update on GameCenter, so what this equates to in real time, I'm not sure.
Wouldn't have thought it was as much as 4 plays tho?
Does it matter that its so far behind if its your only source of game info? Surely you wouldnt know any better that it wasnt so up to date?

actually, i was talking about the internet broadcast. and it does matter if you're following it on nfl.com AND on radio at the same time.

Triple X has a long delay, use 102.1. It is MUCH MUCH better. I hear the play and then 2 seconds later it updates on the NFL.com game cast. Triple X is usually 2 plays or so behind.

yeah I used 102.1 for most of the game and didn't have the problems. Triple X has been having problems as of late and they know it but haven't seemed to fix it yet.

yeah, same here. I had to stop looking at the game update thread on ES as the guys there were at least 2 or 3 plays on from where I was listening to it. It may be 'internet' but I can only guess that they are having to bump this to some server somewhere before streaming. Probably screws up the delay as to when they can transmit. Tried Sopcast for the game to watch but that was awful. Eventually it crashed. Whoever is sending that thing must be streaming it through an old ZX Spectrum!

Unless the game is national, i'm stuck with triple x. Good thing is getting sonny and sam. I seem to be in raider country here in sin city.

If it weren't for 100.3, I'd have given up on the radio broadcast I've been listening to for 25 years.
That's how much Triple X blows.
