If you don't know what a lie is, I can't help you. I did say that this is all just PR rhetoric, so I understand when either party exaggerates.

Do you have a source that the contracts aren't worth 389 million? Because I've read otherwise.

And again, the NBC contract is a joke. Coverage is nowhere compared to the NFL, MLB, or NBA. Besides, its not a good idea for the league to lock-out after signing such deals.
