While the summer is essentially dead, Fall through late spring has several items of entertainment on those many channels.

But this person decided to pay extra for Versus to watch the few(?) cycling tournaments? I find that incredible.
This...and this.

I nearly fell over when I read that the first time. The scary thing is that that poster wasn't the only one that said they got Versus only because of Cycling.

I wouldn't watch a single second of Versus without hockey being on there (as I'm sure several hockey fans wouldn't), but it's not the only reason for getting the entire sports package and it's not like I would get rid of Versus because of hockey leaving. One person said they switched entirely from DTV when Versus left. Just ridiculous claims IMO.
