JCS owes Sox $12 Million
Will McDonough finally wrote what many of us who work in sports TV have
known for months. JCS has yet to pay the Red Sox for the 1999 season ( 10
Million) PLUS, they owe NESN another $2 Million for production costs)
Personally I would be shocked if the Red Sox see more than 30 cents on the
dollar, as JCS heavily discounted the rate card, and as it was the rate
structure could never recover the costs.
The Red Sox deserve what they got, as they were blinded by dollar signs, but
since JCS owns NOTHING, chance of recovery by the Sox are next to nil.
Only good thing to report is the little guys ( production people ) have
gotten paid by NESN, so only the suits are going to get hurt.
