I love Phil Jackson without a doubt, but I really don't think he would've succeeded with this Lakers team. Nash isn't a triangle PG, he's a runner and pick n role guy. Howard isn't a triangle C, he flourishes with a moving and pick n roll offense. The triangle is for stationary weak PGs and immobile Cs. As for defense; It's a veteran team, they don't need defensive coaching.


Yeah, I think the Lakers will put up some big numbers!

:lol:

I guess the other providers that carry TWC Sportsnet just wanted to waste money. :lol:


The other providers, save for Dish, have a completely different customer base profile. They can tailor their stations to what the local scene demands. Now, if Comcast in all their areas are showing the TW Sportsnet channel, I'll have to backtrack a bit.....

Because I have every DAMN right to keep posting in here.

I don't get the whole attitude of D* FANBOYS on this site who tell disgruntled D* customers to basically shut up and try to censor my complaints on this forum.


Wrong. It is a privilege to post here, not a "right" as this is a privately owned forum.

Last I checked, NO ONE is trying to "censor" you. And truth be told, the owners/mods/admins who run this forum can limit or remove posts as they like and it is NOT censorship.

I still stand by what I said. There is simply not enough interest for this channel among D* subscribers. People aren't jumping ship in droves just to see this channel. ;)

Here is the latest e-mail sent out by D*



Not looking good at all when D* sends out this email and then removes the section off the directvpromise.com website.

Like I said it's looking much more like D* is willing to miss the entire Lakers regular season over this dispute.



I'm curious, that email that D* "sent out", was that in response to an email you sent?

Secondly, where do you see where D* has ever said they are willing to miss the entire Lakers regular season or even a hint at it?

He wasn't shunned. He was asking for the moon and wanted complete control and part ownership.Similar to what Pat Riley has down in Miami with the Heat.

Headline says he was "stunned" he didn't get an offer, and that they hired the other guy.

Fair to say he was stunned he was shunned.

We're ALL paying for channels we don't watch. ;)


So why add more?

:lol:

I guess the other providers that carry TWC Sportsnet just wanted to waste money. :lol:


Judging by TWC's failing finances, they may have just done that

Time Warner Cable shares fell about 6.5 per cent in afternoon trading after the second-largest cable operator in the US reported a sharper-than-expected drop in video customers. The company lost 140,000 video subscribers in the quarter compared to the same period a year earlier.

Sort of like what TWC is asking from DirecTV to carry the Lakers channel.

Yes. The Lakers are getting clocked again, but I doubt David Stern and the boys want them to go 1-4 so I'm sure the zebras are going to bail them out.

On Saturday I said next week, that was 4 days ago and you guys are already panicking. Nothing is guaranteed in this industry. Nothing. Do I still think they will get a deal done before the week is up? Yes. Is it guaranteed? No. Nothing is in life.

The remarks I read here continue to just make me laugh. I've explained why these deals are so much different than the cable deals but apparently it goes in one ear and out the other.


Any updates to share?

Because people want to watch them. I'm sure there are channels YOU watch, that I could do without. That doesn't make it right though to just remove them.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

The difference is most of these stations are part of a broader network. I choose to watch some stations more or even not watch at all but realize the package as a whole warrants my enthusiasm. The "Lakers Channel" is just one part time channel with nothing else that interests me along with most other people. I can watch every Lakers game without paying $4 a month. I will watch the next Lakers game on TNT Tuesday evening. I watched some of the Galaxy game on ESPN last night. There is no need for me or anyone else to pay $4 buck a month, i am NOT missing any games by NOT getting TWC.

Well...TWC SportsNet's listing is back up on their promise webpage linked to that same beyond tired super stale message;

Wonder if that pretty much sticks a fork in it, and like with the Pac-12 network DIRECTV is determined to ride this out and this season is probably done.

Unbelievable ...:nono2:

I understand folks still have to negotiate, but didn't D* add a zip code-driven RSN Fee for exactly this kind of scenario not too long ago?
