    Two things.

    1. Who cares about the cardinals? and...

    2. I didn't know people actually cared about the St. Louis Blues.

    The problem is that now Big 12 games that are available on FSN are not available on Dish. I cannot watch KU vs. Baylor this morning, so I'm assuming that in the coming weeks when ISU is on FSN those games will be unavailable as well. I really like Dish Network, but this might force me to switch to Directv.

    This is not a good sign. Makes me even more skeptical that Beebe will be able to deliver on his promise of a big new TV package.

    Non Issue for that. They'll get this worked out long before then, my guess would actually be within a month. These disputes seem to happen pretty frequently but get worked out fairly quickly as well.

    This is exactly what I thought when I saw the thread title.

    I hope you are right.

    I would think they will have FSN back in a couple of weeks, it may not be as big as ESPN, but for many major cities that's the only way they get their local pro teams with NBA and NHL starting up, the pressure will be on dish to get them back.

    Re: Dish Network Drops Fox Sports Net

    Typical corprate greed on both sides. They both say it is the other guy's fault.
    For me it is Twins and Cyclone games that I would miss. It was great last weekend watching the great game in the desert and a replay of the Cyclone win. Although I was kind of tired at 4AM, but I got to watch the game. Some good stuff? I still get comcast Chicago, and I get CBS C now?? It is a sports channel.
