    Boycott CBS

    While the decision by CBS to pull the plug on the end of the KU vs. Mizzou game did not directly impact ISU, in the future it could. For that reason, please consider boycotting all CBS programming whenever possible.

    CBS would never do that for a Big East or an ACC game and that decision is a direct insult to people in the midwest. Please help send a clear message by hurting their network ratings!!

    It was ridiculous, but I doubt many people here care. If they do, I certainly don't think they'll go as far as a boycott.

    Why did they do that in the first place?

    What's illegal about not watching a channel?

    MTV and Oxygen have a couple very strong cases against me.

    Re: Boycott CBS

    For those asking what happened, CBS switched from the KU-MU game with 4 or 5 minutes left (a 6 or 8 point game at that point) over to the beginning of the Michigan State - Michigan game. Never switched back, even when the game got down to a 2-point game near the end (I'm not sure about this, because I didn't see it).

    In New York. In Chicago. In Kansas City, even.

    CBS = Can't Broadcast Sports. They just keep proving it.

    CyBobby isn't very smart, is he?

    Boycott CBS

    Wow, I'd get sued a lot since I don't watch about 3/4 of the channels.
