it ain't petty when TWC starts out by asking for $5 ish a month, every month, from every LA area subscriber for the 'effin Dodgers channel. At this point it's obvious that DirecTV etc. aren't losing anything close to a substantive amount of subscribers over this (an indeed may lose more, at this point, if they agreed to the extortion)...
in summation...eff TWC and double eff the Dodgers...

Excellent article..the Sabols were amazing and Steve should certainly be in the HOF. Only one quibble with NFL Films...because their advent came around the time of the AFL-NFL merger, and they understandably wanted to push their own footage...they along with Pete Rozelle are largely responsible for the general sensibility that NFL Championships prior to the Super Bowl don't count/exist...as the decades have elapsed NFL Films has certainly assumed a more curatorial role for all of NFL history...but in the 70's and 80's when NFL Films programming was such an influential part of making the NFL the nation's true pastime, it seemed as if the pre-merger Championships never occured...
