Aresco was deal a horrible hand. The prior contract was crap - it basically allowed ESPN to match the highest offer or back out. The only good part about the contract was that the offer included a lot of time on actual TV versus internet feeds. We can actually negotiate this time around - hopefully there will be more than one interested party.Somewhat contrarian:
Aresco managed to negotiate possibly the most network-lopsided deal in history, at what's looking like the exact zenith of TV rights contracts.
TV revenue has gotten worse
Aresco is still Aresco
I'd be shocked if the next contract isn't flat to a nudge up, and painted as a victory against the TV revenue backdrop. I would love to be wrong.
