Has anyone contacted their lawmaker and asked them to lobby Mediacom to add the NFL Network, so we lowly Cyclone fans can watch the Insight Bowl?
This is crap. These negotiations have been going on all year. Now, since the precious Orange Bowl maybe blacked-out to some viewers, lawmakers need to get involved?
This is about as bad as getting kicked in the nads by our own Big XII commish.
Fail. Comparing a local network station that everybody has had for years to the NFL Network is flawed. Comparing the Orange Bowl to the Insight Bowl is yet another flaw but really not worth mentioning.
IIRC, lawmakers with nothing else better to worry about was threating to get involved the last time as well.
correct. And last time, what happened? Mediacom's complaint was thrown out and they lost the Sinclair stations for almost a month. I don't see what is so different with the current situation. I expect that something similar would happen this time around.
"What a horrible night to have a curse."
"Please bury me with all my stuff, because you know it's mine..."
"Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood."
Last time they didn't ask for FCC intervention till after they lost the channels. This time they asked for it in advance so they wouldn't lose the channels during negotiations. Though as far as I know the FCC has not granted their involvement in the dispute yet.
