    Just read a tweet from Dave Zawalinski that there is a real possibility that ESPN will be dropped by DirecTV on Friday of this week if they don't reach a contract agreement.

    Just when ISU gets GameDay a large segment of the country might not be able to see it...most Cyclone thing ever!

    I will NOT be happy if this happens as I plan to watch most of it at my tailgate.

    I remember when I used to be a DirecTV subscriber. Just one more reason I'm glad I told them to **** off.

    There is no way that can happen. With the NFL and College football season upon us, there will be rioting in the streets.

    Damn, I wondered why that channel wasn't loading the other night when I was trying to watch a replay.

    Doesn't this happen before nearly every Superbowl and Olympic Games?

    They will figure it out. If not, I will have to pull up the "Cutting the Cord" thread and figure out a different Sports TV source.

    At least the game is on FS1, so many will still be able to see it. Hope they get this ironed out quickly. It will not effect me this week, but might in the future.

    I hate this as much as the next guy, but what is charged to providers for ESPN compared to just about every other channel is ridiculous. It would be nice if it was knocked back a notch or two.

    Is this a local spat like the Channel 5 WOI issue or a national spat?

    It's national. The Channel 5 thing wasn't local either. It was an entire nationwide group of stations that WOI was a part of.
