Immediately after the Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake won their USOC matches a twitter conversation broke out. Many of the Portland fans, while downright giddy because of the win, were complaining about the quality and camera work of the provided stream. Even Merritt Paulson got in on the act with this tweet at RSL.
@RealSaltLake do me a favor guys and at least produce a decent webstream for our fans...I will be there but non HD pixilation is tough— Merritt Paulson (@MerrittPaulson) June 27, 2013
RSL's response was even better:
@MerrittPaulson will do … perhaps we should consider a joint TV broadcast?— Real Salt Lake (@RealSaltLake) June 27, 2013
Merritt has confirmed that the broadcast is now set-up. Hot Dang!
Also, Looks like we are a go for US Open Cup semi broadcast w @christianrmiles & @OriginalWinger at helm. Thanks to @RealSaltLake for coop.— Merritt Paulson (@MerrittPaulson) July 3, 2013
This is great news for all fans involved. Now Portland just needs to win the game and the coin flip so the USOC Final can be played at Jeld Wen.
