Either way, it's the same bullshit here in Orlando. If you're in Tampa, you can't get the Rays. If you're in South Florida, you can't get the Marlins. That makes sense of course. But the rest of the state doesn't permit MLB.tv to air either team.

Here's the catch though - there are several portions of Orlando, Central, and Northern Florida that will exclusively or majorly show just the Rays or just the Marlins. I had that issue on campus last year. This year, I switched to Comcast and they're a lot better than Brighthouse. The logic simply isn't there if you black out a region and dont show it on TV. It's like saying... become a Rays fan god damn you!
All of those things are negotiated, thus are a league issue.

The "league" works for team owners. So we're both right.

Point was that it's not the cable companies who are mandating local blackouts on the packages.

I have no idea why LeBron keeps talking about a potential return. Maybe he really is showing remorse - though I do stress the "maybe" in that clause.

Alright that makes sense. In fact, it probably wouldn't have made much sense with the way I had it in my head without some form of negotiation/finalization.

Because he's the biggest douche in the history of professional sports, and that's really saying something.

And the prize for the media outlet that took the Lin pun craze too far goes to the worldwide leader! Congrats, guys. You earned this one.

That's the arena where they have the Big East Tournament, right? Good to hear they've found another use for it.

So is it typical for Jimmer Fredette to shoot every time he touches the damn ball?

Hopefully Baron will get back today. This Knicks team is suddenly really deep.

There's something wrong with STAT's back. He doesn't have the same explosiveness he had last year.

And this game has gotten incredibly chippy.

Edit* and deron williams might be a tad upset that he was patient zero of the Linsanity outbreak
