We're kind playing the sports waiting game ourselves. We're due to move in mid-July, and unless DirecTV has at least signed Pac12, SEC and Longhorn by then, it's hello Charlie Ergen and bye bye Direct.
Someone at DTV management/marketing must have thought about this. Why not offer a full "Sportsman" or to be pc, a "Sportsperson" package. This package primary intent is to provide programming far and above the current "sports pack." Included for $???? a month a subscriber would get all current sports channels including SEC-TV, BTN, PAC12, LongHorn, MLB, NBA, NFL, ESPN, FOX Sports, Tennis, CBS Sports, NBC Sports, Golf, Soccer, etc... (ST, EI or such would not be included) A package like this would also include a few prime networks, TBS, TNT, TruTV All Locals and maybe a few news and weather channels.
It would allow for those who want more sports to pay and have their appetite satisfied and those who don't want such programming to avoid paying for unwanted content.
