No Great Outdoor Games in 2006
ESPN has announced that The Great Outdoor Games are on "hiatus" in 2006. "Our plan is to re-launch the event in 2007 with fresh ideas and approaches that will improve it for our fans, viewers and participants." In the article they say the games were a big success but that they needed to take a break in order to make them better. Anyone have any insight as to what the real story is? Rarely do T.V. networks turn down large sums of money from sponsors just to make something better. I am guessing the sponsorship fell through. If I am not mistaken they took the fly fishing competition out of the mix in 2005. Hopefully this new revamping in 2007 will include our sport again.
