hmmm, if the biggest corporate players in the game are media giants, kinda makes ya wonder why they are tossing all this content out the window this year, eh? kinda make ya wonder who's calling the shots on that side of the table and what their objectives and preferences really are. hmmm.

It's Bell without question. Leafs, Habs, 6 different sports channels in a hockey crazed country. NBC is losing peanuts compared to Bell. Did NBC hockey even make money last season? If they did no chance it's even 1/10th of what Bell makes from the NHL.

Well they kinda are as they have the ability to end the lockout tomorrow. If the successful teams coughed up more dough for rev sharing much of this lockout nonsense would be solved. Clearly they don't want to do that and you can't blame them.

Lockouts every 4 years even though they are making a killing, fellow owners who have no self control in regards to contracts and others that have no idea how run their business in the black.

It does make one wonder. Gate receipts are roughly half the story, but the supply of seats is finite. Anyone can watch a game as long as they have a TV and cable. (Or over-the-air, when NBC carries a game.)

Sorry, I was going by what games were shared here on the west coast. How did they ever get in what essentially was the Comcast sharing group? BTW, the bulk of the additional feeds in SJ were Philly with Washington second.

i'd say beer companies, but then again, tht;s just a wild quess on my part. beer and sports go hand-in-hand, regardless of teh market. im sure they are feeling the pinch. especially when their product has a shelf-life

In a small way Thompson corp with family member owning jets.The family could buy the league and still have billions left.Molson family and though they sold Molson corp a decade ago members of family are still involved in company.But your right comcost is powerful.But there are people behind the scenes who are powerful
