So they can't get CSNNW on their COMCAST stations up there, yet they still can't see the Blazers? This is THE WORST situation fiasco in the nation.
At this point, it doesn’t make sense for Comcast NW to be broadcasted in Seattle. They are primary an Oregon station. Their biggest offering to a Seattle audience would be of course, the Blazers. But for that to happen, the Blazers would have to claim Seattle in their DMA. That has not happened:http://seattlepi.nws...69_media05.html
The other exclusive Comcast NW has is Ducks football. Important to some, but not huge up there in Purple and Gold country.
I doubt Comcast NW would be allowed to show the Blazers in Seattle without approval of the Blazers and the League.
I disagree with the assertion that folks in Seattle or Spokane will not get the Blazers game with League Pass. At least for now they are not part of Portland’s DMA, so they should
still be able to see the games with LP. I guess they'll find out soon enough.
In regards to Paul Allen, remember he and Mark Cuban were the only two owners to vote against the Sonics move. He lives in Seattle, owns the Seahawks, and is the home of Vulcan as well. I’d imagine Mr. Allen wouldn't do anything that gets in the way of Seattle’s chances of landing another team quickly. It’s strange, because you’d think he’d have the most to gain by the Sonics leaving, or having a team in Seattle - but he’s not that type of guy….pretty admirable these days….
