My appologies if "dumps" was the wrong word, it came from the St Louis headline for the story. I understand these games are moves from local tv to the regional sports network. What I found particularly amusing/frustrating was remembering the mail pieces both electronic and physical I got from Comcast/Versus basically enticing me to switch from DTV because I would "miss" the 4 Sharks games on Versus. Out here in the Bay Area, all our games have been on the RSN for years, so no local over the air options here for several years. Being a hockey fan, if I was in the St Louis or Dallas market, and HAD switched, I would not be happy as you would have gained X games on Versus and yet be blacked out of many more on your regional sports network. Then there is this quote from the St Louis story "At some point, someone has to say no to the ever-escalating price of sports programming,'' Dish Network said in a statement, adding that it is "... the best value in TV today. One of the ways we achieve that is by sometimes just saying no to outrageous prices." This all sounds somewhat familiar. Its the same argumnt DTV is using with its spat with Versus. Seems it all about the price/terms for the carriage fees. As I have stated previously, I have no clue who is right in these spats, I just wish as a sports fan, they could all get it solved so we can move on and enjoy the entertainment of our choice.
