    Telling quote: "This summer, Comcast entered the picture, becoming half-owner and operator with CSTV of The Mountain network in a new 10-year plan worth $120 million"

    Of course, I have the option of watching a live PPV broadcast over the internet, for $15-20 a pop, or pay a similar amount for a 1 day package from DirecTV. Not being a devoted fan of either team, I've found other things to do during those times. Guess I and other satellite subscribers are lost customers for those advertisers.

    Yep, the $20 internet pay-per-views are ridiculous. How long can this debacle of a television contract go on before some schools move to withdraw from the MWC?

    It is interesting that Air Force supported this network with the idea that they would not have to play Thursday night games - as it is extremely hard for the cadets to do this. Yet they still had to play on Thursday with the new network.

    What a joke this whole thing is. I don't even have the option of Comcast in my subdivision so I can't have "The Mountain" even if I was willing to try cable.

    I hope a resolution is reached sooner than later, but I won't hold my breath!
