I know that previous to the NBCU deal that Comcast was very interested in not 
only NESN but what are now the ROOT RSNs (Pittsburgh, Seattle, Denver). Not sure 
if it is feasable now due to corporate structure and the current economy. Tom 
Werner orginally wanted to turn NESN back to a pay channel, so maybe his 
contribution to that end of the business is overstated.

I remember that after the last game of the 2004 World Series NESN was still in 
an infomercial while then-FSN New England had Greg Dickerson grabbing players 
for intereviews on the field.
