    As football season approaches, the cable industry is gang-tackling a fledgling network created by the powerful National Football League...

    Cable companies all suck.
    I refuse to do any television business with any of them, regardless of where I live.
    In Florida, it was Continental.
    Here in Delaware, it's Comcast.
    DirecTV rules.
    The cable companies are still miffed that they couldn't get together and negotiate successfully for the NFL Ticket, so, they continue to deliver an inferior product through their own greed.
    I LOATHE them... >

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    I agree, but wait until Zeus comes in here... He seems to think that the cable companies are innocent victims being pushed arround by the big bad NFLN.

    I am glad that I have dish.
    I love watching the games and content on NFLN, Total Access in HD, all of the Thursday games...
    I hope that the NFLN wins this battle.

    Are you a WSJ subscriber?
    It would be neat actually to read the article posted, rather than the first two paragraphs...

    Yeah, you're right.
    How silly of me to think that the NFL demanding that ALL subscribers pay for NFLN is fair, rather than allowing the cable companies to put it on a sports tier that only sports fans will need to pay for.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Of course, being smart like I am, I was able to find the article, unblocked, so that I could read it.
    I rule, you drool.

    Clever trick, post the exact same link with the same partial article.
