Sure, and violate a contract that says those sports channels have to be distributed in a certain way with a minimum number of eyeballs. What a great idea....violating contracts and such. What could possibly go wrong?
Violate a contract where he sits on BOTH sides!
Root Sports is owned 100% by Directv, so he'd be enforcing a contract against himself? He can also let himself out of the same contract. See when a parent controls the sub it can do that. Or for the sake of argument parent can pay a fine to sub and then sub can send the dollars right back to parent.
Really now, seriously this is your argument? Silly.
If it makes you better he can have his secretary call himself up and leave messages for himself on voice mail and negotiate with himself. Or look in the mirror and talk to himself.
Bottom line is that RSN model is changing and Directv has substantial invetsment in RSNs itself and is doing whatever it can to protect itself from the changes. Sure $2.33 a month or whatever for Root NW and we get High School football......meanwhile over at Pac 12 they are charging 80 cents for 7 channels and get real games! So who is over charging who!?
