I believe Scott said he offered DirecTV the same deal (in essence) that Dish signed up for, which more or less means that it is on a non-sport's tier in-market (@ 80 to 90 cents per subscriber) and sport's tier out of market (at probably something less per sub). Is he being truthful when he says this? I have no idea. Does it even matter at this point? To me, no. In any case, I'm amazed how passionate some people are when in actuality, it really won't affect them one way or the other, no matter how this situation ultimately turns out. The ironic double standards being thrown about over this issue is really funny. I won't name names, but it makes you wonder about their ulterior motives as some people take great offense at any disparaging comments directed at DirecTV. Maybe I'm unable to empathize to that degree, but if someone insulted my cable company, I wouldn't care one way or the other as it wouldn't affect me, personally, like others take offense to it here. In fact, these forums are rather suspect in my opinion.
