cool story on telling nbc to screw.

Let me guess, because old farts show up right? Just like in baseball, Rays-Yankees/Red Sox are popular since only fans of the road teams bother showing up. Still a stupid reason to align them together.

Which one? The one with the lease til 2030(Florida) or the one possibly getting a new arena(Tampa)?

It is a cool story since NBC has no say in the matter since they're in year 2 of a 10 year deal. It's not like it's going to stop them airing all the Flyer and Ranger games that they want anyway. Besides they(Philly & the NY trio) can use the Florida markets more than Canada since there is already an MLB connection with Miami & Philly and NY & Miami and Tampa and a NFL connection with Philly & Wash and NY & Miami.
