My gut is telling me that they'll cancel it today and then IF talks are fruitful they could bring it back to life... But that's a huge IF.
I can't believe they'd thumb their collective noses at Bridgestone & the rest of the sponsors AND NBC & HBO like this... But I guess that's the point. "Blow it up! Destroy all that's been built... about face the momentum. Damn the torpedoes! Who cares about soccer gaining on us?!!! We want our money!!!"
