Old man yelling at clouds. We had everything he wanted. Every imaginable channel available in different packages, delivered to your home. It was called cable TV. And people hated it because in order to please Mikey D with all his sports, Martha needed HGTV and travel channel, which Mike didn't like, and now Mikey and Martha each ended up paying more to support the other person's channel desires.

It was a tragedy of the commons in reverse.

So, companies came up with other models that viewers are going towards in troves while decimating cable.

1. They let him write about BC constantly as if anyone cares
2. Works in the media and doesn’t have the first clue about the carriage issues the ACCN has.

The print sportswriters in Connecticut are so bad it’s crazy.
LOL... Damn catholic school education!

“... I got someone from the ACC Network to respond. The response: I could go to YouTube TV or Hulu Live, use their free trials and watch ACC Network immediately.

Problem: I have no interest in subscribing to YouTube TV or Hulu Live. Not in the budget. Hence, I'd have to do something intellectually dishonest — sign up for something I'd cancel three hours later — just to watch a football game.

A more cynical fellow might even call that stealing.

To watch a football game.<<

Since I have to be the jerk... um you got a degree from Boston College - a school that retails at 70k a year and can’t afford $20 in the ol budget to watch a huge win.

I blame De Filippo.. if only he hadn't pushed for Pitt's inclusion instead of UConn/Syracuse; poor Mike would've been more likely to have Frontier (headquartered in Norwalk) to carry the network and have managed to see the game. :p

BC was a glorified commuter school when he went there.

The BCgenius living up to his name yet again. Is this guy 90 years old living on an isle near Stonington?

Whatever, this tv problem couldn’t happen to a better sports “reporter.”

There's a freshman congressman who got an economic degree from BC and she doesn't know economics...(she was a bartender)

Even better- Frontier. He won't have it until we land on Mars.
he probably couldnt stream it even if he has access. they use 64k modems in that part of the state

So by extension - BCmoran sits through all commercials in order to avoid "stealing" from the content providers.

It is too bad they won. I was hoping Louisiana Monroe would have gone for two.
