March 1. DirecTV. Versus.  WTF.

At this point, does anyone really think this is not going to end with us DTV subs missing playoff games?

At least I have the most accessible owner in pro sports to help state my case, but I was a little disappointed with what I got in reply.

I want to re-iterate that although some of those answers sound flip, he was just being direct and he was not necessarily blowing me off.  However, this troubles me:

I will call them again - so far it hasn't worked.

How about all 30 of you and good old Gary B call them? 

Why is it my issue?

Um, you know...that whole growing the game thing?  Trying to establish a national presence?

Comcast SportsNet - that is really my product.

An isolationist, regionalized approach?  Really?  Certainly life is good for CSN and Ted right now, but wouldn't life be better if more people could watch his Caps on Versus?

 

What are you fellow DTV folks going to do come April?  I can't believe that this absurdity continues.  Versus doesn't want to be on a limited tier so - they get nothing and like it?  And the NHL, largely roasted for this TV deal to begin with, sits back while this goes on for an entire NHL season?    Fans getting corn-holed again?  Why not.
