I know that they don't have the ability to do it NOW. My point is that I wouldn't be surprised by anything in the future. The rights cost NBC 300% more than the last fox deal. I think you guys are thinking that i mean theyre going to have night games next season or something - Im talking YEARS down the road. But if, YEARS down the road, NBC decides that they want to make a more significant investment to the point of requesting accommodations on some game times, it's a possibility in my opinion. Everyone has their price, it would be a matter of whether NBC would meet it. I think you guys are being a little naive to say that there is
absolutely no way
something like this could happen one day. No matter how unlikely, I for one would not be surprised.
