    Ok, too many people to "quote" and respond to.

    To answer a number of you, I am not "sleeping with his daughter"

    It is a complicated situation that got out of hand, should have never tried to be nice. There is minimal contributions.

    Removing the 700's from the guide won't stop direct entering so not very practical.

    I've thought about parental controls, but will have to access that box relatively close to the season, may not be practical.
    Password protecting the channels might work. Depending on what backlash I get verbally. Although I am at the point of simply saying too bad.

    My other option would be to "find" games each week online. I'd rather not go this route.

    Id let them know that since they refuse to chip in, you are going to block the channels on their box. Then Id set parental controls and walk away... End of story. Im just so darn blunt with some people in this world after someone took advantage of my niceness once a long time ago. Its better just to lay out the law if there is an issue IMHO.

    \Somehow I doubt you could get directv to activate Sunday ticket on just certain boxes...

    I've always felt in-laws should be called outlaws. Given that, your only option is to stop being nice, take back the control over your life and tell them they have to leave. Otherwise you will never be happy.
