NESN, CSNNE are battling it out for viewers

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.
