I'm all for this. I loved Slamball back in the day.

...what?

I know Craig used to play slamball, and he even said so in the video, but this still seems very out of place for ScrewAttack.

If the ScrewAttack crew did their own commentary track for a reel like this, it might be a slightly better fit, but I doubt there's much interest for slamball in the viewerbase in general. I'd be fine if they kept doing this because I can just ignore it myself, but I don't think this'll get the support it needs for SA to post more slamball.

Even though I appreciate Craig and the sport of Basketball... I just don't really dig this.

Also considering a vast majority of the g1 populace's stance on SPORTS as a whole, w/e support some may give it now probably wont last.

In fact, I foresee a lot of people having only watched the beginning of that video, saying "sure why not", click like/share, and will probably never actually watch an episode of it again.

Although it does seem out of place for ScrewAttack, which is what I'm seeing as a common comment, I wouldn't have a problem with seeing Slamball on Screwattack. I'm for it. :D

If game reviews and gaming news don't fit on ScrewAttack, nothing does.

No, Slamball should not be on ScrewAttack.

Like the sport all you want, but ScrewAttack is a site where people come to talk about video games (and in my case, lay down the honest but harsh truth about anime in the Current Thoughts thread), not where people come to talk about video games and look at games from a sport that so few people care about that they have representatives to actively seek out video game sites to make themselves known to people.

And I know it sounds arrogant for me to talk about what ScrewAttack should and should not be, but as people already have pointed out, this is really out of place. Make a channel about Slamball, if you want it to be seen by people, but please don't shoehorn it into somewhere it doesn't fit.

If they play slam jam music in each episode then I'm all for it, basketball is a cool sport...but I just don't see it fitting with gamers.

That's like putting raisins in chocolate.

Also.... Slam jam

I get what they're trying to do... but maybe they should make a separate channel for it.

This... I can agree with. It just doesn't really mesh well with the regular SA content otherwise.

Won't work. The G1s are full of people who love video games, and they're probably people who either hate sports or don't care about them. :cry:
