    So I watch a lot of sports online. NFL Redzone, college bball, ufc ppvs via firstrow, or cbssports, or various sites.

    Those sites use Flash player I take it on the computer. While the wii can access those sites, once i hit the links to start it up....it tells me flash player is needed and cant be used with the wii.

    Is there a workaround that?

    megadunderhead, read this.
    The Internet Channel features a Web browser made by Opera Software, which allows users to surf the World Wide Web. This browser can be used to access web sites, perform web searches, etc. Wii owners who are connected and have activated the Wii Shop Channel can download the Opera browser to activate the Internet Channel of the Wii Menu and begin surfing the Web. A broadband Internet connection is required. The Internet Channel costs 0 Wii Points to download, and is available in the Wii Shop Channel, in the Wii Channels section.
