This is of course the case, but are you saying that a live Reds broadcast would draw lower ratings than today's FSO lineup - 1986 World Series Highlights, an infomercial for ATVs, reruns of the UFC, and a reair of old guys playing tennis?
I would think the Reds would want their games broadcast and would be willing to cut FSO some sort of deal on the rights for the day games based on the lower viewership. Of course, I might be 100% wrong.
