The TBS fiasco on Saturday night
Mon Oct 20 16:27:54 EDT 2008

Baseball in Central Florida is not a big deal.  Football is a very big  deal 
and baseball is ignored.  Even the Rays winning the series will not  fill 
their seats next year.  Rays couldn't fill Tropicana Field for game 6  and 7 and 
tickets were being given away. 
Even if the game was televised on local channel, it would not have gotten  
decent ratings.
Interesting about the sabotage.

Part of  the problem is Bright House Cable which is the major provider
in the Tampa  market says nearly 25 percent don't purchase the tier TBS
is on and the  football game was on channel 8 WFLA-TV.

It just shows that not having a  local over the air station for playoff
games is folly. The NFL would never  allow that.
