That might've just been for HB, since that's the NPPLs largest event. I could see them having ESPN3 around for the Vegas event in November, but we'll see. Cost is also a factor, I can't even begin to imagine how much ESPN would charge just for coverage for ESPN3 "The Tres".

When HB was done it was set up as a 1 time event.

I'm sure if they got the amount of traffic they were hoping for but I wouldn't expect them back until Vegas at best, maybe HB 12 if we're lucky.

You have to remember $$$ is the biggest factor, if the NPPL can't pay for it then ESPN has to pay for it, if ESPN is going to pay for it then they have to make $$ off of it. I don't know how many viewers they needed to consider HD a success and I don't recall any official numbers being released. All we can really do is hope it was considered a success by ESPN and it worth them doing it again.

From what I've heard, it costs about $500,000 to film a day worth of events on ESPN. That's cost of cameramen, directors, equipment, and other costs like hotel and travel. $500k is the cheapest, I've heard, for any event.

Announcers at Chicago mentioned something about the weather being a factor for espn3 not coming. Thunderstorms are projected for Saturday and Sunday.

I don't know the validity of those claims, but two reputable local weathermen are predicting 100% chance of rain, with severe t-storms tomorrow.
