On the college level, they get regular season games and conference tourneys, but they miss out on the big tourney which is all that matters. They do have a ton college football games which is what keeps them alive IMO, but IIRC, they don't get any of the BCS games, again the only games that truly matter. Obviously being apart of ABC, is the only thing keeping them alive. If they weren't owned by ABC, ESPN wouldn't have that much leverage over the cable companies IMO.
ESPN had a ton of leverage well before they got together with ABC/Disney, so I don't buy that thesis at all. Fact of the matter is that ESPN is catered towards its audience, so while you may not like some of their programming (I agree, some if it has gotten away from what I would prefer), a lot of other people do watch it. And if you're going to be choosing a cable provider...are you going to choose the one that doesn't have ESPN and ESPN2 as a sports fan?

They have an insane amount of leverage over cable companies because of that.

Nice.

Also, just watched the "History of the Philadelphia Flyers" DVD and it reeeaaaallllllllllyyy pumped me up for this game. I want the Cup!
I JUST bought the 10 Greatest Games and am currently watching the Flyers Lightning playoff game.

My god how AWESOME of a team that was. But the team we have now does not have the PASSION that is needed to win a cup. The 04 team was something VERY SPECIAL.

The better question is, can you find a cable provider that doesn't have the ESPN and ESPN 2 in its basic cable plans? A big reason for that is ESPN being under the Disney/ABC umbrella. And they've been with ABC since the mid 80s so there wasn't necessarily a long period of their existence where they didn't have backing.
