Yes they do
I have spent my career just going with the flow.
This is a Philly-NY turf battle which has gone on for decades ( heck Philly O&O's still have camerarmen for studio news ) goes back to Mike Douglas at KYW
Boston crew never got into these wars as a rule
Dr. Halper can recall the horror show of Dick Booth from WNEU to WRKO during the IBEW strike
What we fear later today is NBC BOC at 30 Rock will not give control to Versus in Philly - heck we could see colorbars at 8:00:00 on the net
This is all because of Dick Ebersol so
I hope you all see hockey at 8 - I really hate this turf crap..
GO BROONS :) (Chuck Igo knows)
