1. Yes. MSG isn't exactly OLN when it got started...
2. Not sure. Sponsors want eyeballs in the market where they sell things.
3. Some money may trickle back through rights fees, but if it's just a limited number of games, that may not be that much.
4. Same as 3.
5. It adds legitimacy to another league.
