It's not the same channel. NBC Sports is Versus. Universal Sports is a separate channel.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Okay I've watched the Paris-Nice cycling and I can say the PQ is equal if not better than VS. As long as they keep cycling I'm happy. So while I can't really compare the two (which really aren't two but one-in-the-same) I voted I like both equally.

Upon further review . . . . . this is a vast improvement over VS.

I now watch this network more than all ESPN offerings combined (although I do watch Dan LeBatard when they choose to show it, NASCAR offerings and Monday Night Football).

NBC Sports is clearly on the way up as the pompous ESPN networks become caricatures of themselves.

I think this is the reason for ESPN's money grab they know that NBC and FOX are catching up and there rein is almost over.

I hope fox buys the rights to MNF next go around and puts it on FOX 1 or 2.
