Monday night football moved from ABC to ESPN not too long ago, and even then there were some people who lost that privelege to watch the games.
It's a slippery slope which is what I've noticed.
It's all about $$$ these days, because the execs know that people will pay to watch their teams. Just ask Mike Brown...
That is my point exactly. I am not denying the quality of the MLB Network. Instead, I am watching the prices to watch professional sports soar on every front, and I think more people should take notice and speak up about it.
Ticket prices are getting more and more expensive. Playoff games are now going to channels that require additional services and fees. Where does that leave the common person?
Oh yeah, and get off my lawn.
