What kills me is what is considered a "local" team. If you live in Iowa, the Royals, Cardinals, Cubs, White Sox, Brewers, AND Twins are all considered "local" teams. Buying Extra Innings or is pretty much a waste of money because all those games would be blacked out, and there's no cable or satellite service I'm aware of that will give an Iowan all the necessary RSNs to watch those teams. Meanwhile, I live in Omaha (a stone throw from Iowa) where the Royals are my only "local" team (about 200 miles from Kauffman Stadium). Brilliant rules.
