    Very interesting, indeed. A quick read that portrays Charlie as a determined 'David' battling with multiple 'Goliaths'.

    "In 1988, U.S. Customs agents raided Echostar offices in Miami, Dallas, and Tempe, Ariz., and charged the company with illegally exporting set-top boxes. Ergen admitted lax supervision, settled the case by giving $800,000 worth of dishes to schools, and says he learned a lesson. But has he? Echostar still has a reputation for thumbing its nose at regulators; in April the FCC admonished the company for "disingenuous behavior and a lack of candor."


    LoL he was a Tv Pirate:lol: Some David:lol:


    "Even as a teenager playing basketball in Oak Ridge, Tenn., where his father was a nuclear physicist--so much for the country-boy image--he looked for a competitive edge when facing bigger opponents"

    I guess he only plays dumb on TV:D

    If you want perfection in human nature, go elsewhere, you won't find it here. If you want to see heroic underdogs win the day, stick around.

    Even little David was chastised by the FCC (Fairness in Fighting Commision) for deceptive battle practices.)

    It matters not how you play the game, but whether you win or lose (not loose).
