Travis brought Deitsch down to his level and beat him with experience.

I agree with a lot of points you make. Fox Sports Radio is a perfect example of this. They seem to take everything I dislike about ESPN Radio's personality's and say, "You think they're obnoxious and irrationally combative? I'll show you obnoxious and irrationally combative."

As much as I've heard about the ala carte pricing,  I'm not 100% sure that I would benefit from it. 

1) Assuming every household gets only one plan(which admittedly is a big assumption,)  there will be a lot of households where the woman wants to watch sports and the man wants to watch heartbreaking movies about the dangers of learning to love on-line porn again. 

In an a la carte scenario, they each get what they want and pay roughly $20 for ESPN 1 and 2, kick in another $5 for the B1G 10, another $1 for Fox Sports 1, and 2, and 50 cents for NBC Sports.   Then they pay for the lifetime stuff.   

And while I generally am a sports fan,  there are times where I want to see a National Treasure for the 500 time this summer.  So I'd have to pay every month for the stations I occassionally watch. 

What would be particularly nice as a consumer, (and terrifying for a network) is a true pay per view scenario. You want to watch the Reds vs Pirates? $1.  Want to watch Big Bang Theory? $1 


This of course would lead to people actually having to choose how much they value each program and would likely lead to them choosing better things to do.

WryErase,   While it's certainly understandable to infer that was the pun they were using, my guess is the anchor was instead trying to use a bad pun off the slang term "fugly".

I'm especially irritated that the Coors Light Cold Hard Facts are specifically not facts.
