...which was the whole point of my original 'incorrect information' post. Cablevision put out incorrect information regarding NFL Sunday Ticket.
You say my arguement doesn't further cablevisions cause, and to be honest I could really care less about Dolans arguement, but then why is it that MSG and Cablevison are not allowed to make business decisions as freely as the NFL does with its broadcast rights?
The NFL opened the Sunday Ticket package to everyone, and cable companies were outbid by DirecTV. They balked at the high price. Dolan had the opportunity to bid the same amount DirecTV bid, and he chose not to.
Dolan is NOT making MSG available to everyone, he is withholding content without allowing people to negotiate for it. Do you see the difference now?
