    colorado,...
    Let's all try to keep cooler heads on this one. We have a week before the 19th, and I'm sure there will be more info available before then....

    Here's a thought , take a break and watch the 2nd half of the Bronco/Ravens game. Should be thrilling.....:feelbette

    ...why exactly would I lie about this? You seem to be defensive because your assumptions were false. Auto-renew subs get a grace period. You're welcome.

    $60 is a good deal from DirecTV when other providers may be offering it at no charge?

    DirecTV website and Retention Department = documented and factual information

    Hoosier205 = undocumented lies about some sort of "adjustments"

    Cancel your CI subscription by the 18th folks if you don't want to get locked in to the package price. Another fact is you have a free preview until the 31st.

    We'll see. I'm sure you'll be absolutely silent when my statements are verified.

    He has no source, which is why he has refused multiple reasonable requests for it. Sure, he's making a logical leap, but I'm not willing to put my money on the line based on assumptions. I'll wait until the 18th before making my final decision, but if nothing changes between now and then I will cancel to avoid getting locked in. You can always enjoy the freeview and then sign up. I would expect some period to make that decision, but as of now that is not the case.

    I don't see what the big issue is with discussing that here, but some people just like to argue.

    They may very well turn out to be true, but right now they're just guesses.

    I dumped the season scheduled into Excel (have to match it up with my travel schedule to see whether CI will be worth it this year).

    720 games spread over 99 days
    No days with all 30 teams playing on the same day.
    Jan 19, March 16 and April 27 (last day of regular season) all have 13 games (I liked having all teams play on the last day like they did last year).

    It looks like NBC will only have overlapping regional games on Jan 19 (Pittsburgh @ Philadelphia and Chicago @ LA all at 3PM eastern) and Feb 17 (Pittsburgh @ Buffalo 12:30 PM eastern and LA @ Chicago @ 1:30 PM eastern).

    So it looks like those of us on the east coast won't be able to see the cup presented to LA.

    Tampa Bay has a limited number of season tickets being sold for $200 ($8.33 per ticket). Single game tickets also go on sale on Monday.

    Espo mentioned on XM this past week that the owner (Jeff Vinik) has been extremely forward-thinking during the lockout. Tampa Bay didn't lay off any of their staff and he actually gave all staff paid 2.5 weeks of vacation over the holidays. Also, Vinik had made a commitment to donate $50,000 at each home game this season to specific charities ($50,000 x 41 original games = $2,050,000). Even though they weren't playing, he still donated $50,000 to the designated charities on the dates there would have been a home game. Earned him (and the team) a lot of goodwill with the community.
