I was referring to the timeline more than any one particular sport or league. Holidays, bowl games, NFL playoffs, offer plenty of reasons to put off starting the season now that the WC is off the table. The NHL still loses to the NBA in most U.S. markets and combined with 4 nights of NFL football and plenty of college games, I can't see a real motivation to get something done and started before mid January. The league likes a few days off at Christmas too. That's all I meant. The SB is just one day of primetime.
