So I actually tried to view a video clip again: it worked with FF3 and Flash! (Click on gameday for
any game in progress, and check the "video" tab on the right panel}

Sorry. It definitely required Silverlight earlier in the season. Maybe
it was a promo contract with microsoft? I think is
Silverlight's flagship content provider (I wouldn't know personally,
that's a paid service). Or maybe enough people complained about it?
