    I was speaking about at the bars or restaurants. Everyone knows what channel it's on. Basic cable and they still don't show it.

    thats not basic cable...

    NBC Sports is a new channel which use to be Versus
    [/quote]Im almost 100% sure that IS included in basic cable, just like TNT is...
    [/quote]



    In October 2005, Versus elected not to provide NHL coverage to a number of distributors, including EchoStar (Dish Network) and Cablevision,
    both of which refused Comcast's request to place Versus on a much
    higher-penetration package. During this time, NHL coverage was blacked
    out on these systems, replaced with other programming. It was believed
    that the reason behind these blackouts had to do with a penalty fee that
    Comcast would have had to pay the NHL if they did not significantly
    increase their distribution.<sup class="Template-Fact" style="white-space:nowrap;">[<span title="This claim needs references to reliable sources from April 2010">citation needed</span>]</sup></p>


    While Cablevision eventually came to an agreement making OLN/Versus
    available to any customer with digital cable, EchoStar retaliated by
    pulling OLN from its service; it was Dish Network's stance that few of
    its customers would be willing to have the channel if it meant raising
    rates. On April 24, 2006, the same date that OLN announced the
    late-September name change to Versus, Dish Network and OLN reached a
    long term agreement to restore the channel.</p>


    At the beginning of September 2009, DirecTV
    pulled Versus from its lineup, as it was unable to reach terms on a
    rate increase demanded by Comcast. In public statements (including a
    message shown on the channel which formerly carried Versus), DirecTV
    scolded Comcast for its "unfair and outrageous demands", and considered
    the company to be "simply piggish" in its demands for higher rates, as
    it described Versus as "a paid programming and infomercial channel with occasional sporting events."<sup id="cite_ref-33" class="reference"><span>[</span>34<span>]</span></sup>
    On March 15, 2010 an agreement was reached between the sides and Versus
    returned to DirecTV's lineup. The channel was returned to its original
    package on the service, Choice Xtra.<sup id="cite_ref-resolution_34-0" class="reference"><span>[</span>35<span>]</span></sup></p>

    [/quote]Your point being.......

    Versus is no longer a station, its NBC Sports and they're in EVERY SINGLE MARKET. Would I have any point to bring up a failed NBA TV agreement?? The answer is NO

    You can keep reaching but the stars will always be in the sky sen
    [/quote]

    because u don't have one. They may of lost NBC but still picked up ABC.

    While also maintaining ESPN and TNT.

    To put it in perspective - hockey tried to start their own station because ESPN wouldn't give them a big deal in which they then had to sell a few years later

    theres no reaching - thats facts

      lol, thank you for recognizing Poughkeepsie as a downstate city. I'm tired of ppl considering anything more than 30 mins from the city "upstate"...its hard to defend.
      to me, upstate is north of albany.</p>[/quote]

      yea but there were other teams close to alot of places in north NY than the Rangers

      I doubt there are very many Rangers fans that north i the state. They've had closer franchises that have been around along time. Plus while the Sabers only came in 1970, its still been 40 years - im sure thats long enough to build a fan base.

      Infact they draw better at home than the Rangers draw at home
      [/quote]Im almost 100% sure Albany carries MSG and NESN so they have Rangers and Bruins games on TV and Radio
      [/quote]

      im sure all of NY does, just by general contract

      i would bet even buffalo does as well

      but i mean not for nothing, Buffalo sells out more at home than the Rangers do in a similiar capacity stadium with probably 1/5th of the population
      [/quote]I guarantee that you're wrong on that one. Buffalo is much closer to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and a few others that it is to NYC

      And you have it wrong, the last time Buffalo had better attendance than NYR was in 07-08 where they sold out 109% of their games and NYR sold out 100%
      [/quote]

      okay you have to really accept the fact that the percentage of a sellout is stupid...

      They are based off of a hard number which is obviously pushed...

      Hard numbers is all that matters

      you can't say that Rangers sell out this year when they have 100% and they sold out last year when they had 103%....
      obviously there was another 3 % of tickets that could of been sold and weren't

      thats why percentages are stupid. Go look at the hard numbers

      average attendance per game

      06-07
      Buff - 18690
      NYR - 18200

      07-08
      Buff - 19950
      NYR - 18200

      08-09
      Buff - 18531
      NYR - 18172

      09-10
      Buff - 18529
      NYR - 18076

      10-11
      Buff - 18542
      NYR - 18,108

      11-12
      Buff - 18498
      NYR - 18187
      [/quote]You say %'s are stupid, and I feel the same way about your stats, that changes NOTHING just because you said its 'stupid'. Hard numbers are all that matters TO YOU

      You know how many people MSG holds for hockey games???

      18,200


      Its easier for Buffalo to sell more tickets cause they have a bigger arena, but MSG sells out MUCH more consistently

      ...We can keep this up ALL OFFSEASON sen!!!!!

            now ur just tlaking out of ur ***

            NBA ON NBC: "When NBC Sports' contract with the NBA expired in 2002, the broadcast rights were passed to ABC, which began airing games the next season. NBC had made a four-year, $1.3 billion bid in the spring of 2002 to renew its NBA coverage, but the league instead made six-year deals worth $4 billion with ESPN, ABC and TNT.[7]"

            NHL ON ESPN: "Though the two are friends, Bettman had a tough message to deliver: Days
            earlier, ESPN told the league that it would make an aggressive bid on
            the NHL's media package. Bettman told Roberts that ESPN's planned bid of
            $160 million to $170 million per year would test NBC's and Versus'
            right-to-match clause, which several media executives described as the
            tightest such clause they had ever seen. The clause gave NBC the right
            to match any deal the NHL signed with another network"

            NHL ended up on settling on 10 years 2 bil deal

              There's not much to do up there besides eat wings. Especially when there is no football.

              You could also factor into the argument populations in cities and areas but that would take a while. I just find it strange that <font size="5">Buffalo sells out more than NY</font> since the amount of people are probably alot different in the cities.

              Places with more people should always sell out either sport. Memphis Grizzlies for example. They are a really good team with good players but I saw a game the other day with the attendance around 4,000. That is embarrassing. I know that place is poor as **** but still....

                      In October 2005, Versus elected not to provide NHL coverage to a number of distributors, including EchoStar (Dish Network) and Cablevision,
                      both of which refused Comcast's request to place Versus on a much
                      higher-penetration package. During this time, NHL coverage was blacked
                      out on these systems, replaced with other programming. It was believed
                      that the reason behind these blackouts had to do with a penalty fee that
                      Comcast would have had to pay the NHL if they did not significantly
                      increase their distribution.<sup class="Template-Fact" style="white-space:nowrap;">[<span title="This claim needs references to reliable sources from April 2010">citation needed</span>]</sup></p>


                      While Cablevision eventually came to an agreement making OLN/Versus
                      available to any customer with digital cable, EchoStar retaliated by
                      pulling OLN from its service; it was Dish Network's stance that few of
                      its customers would be willing to have the channel if it meant raising
                      rates. On April 24, 2006, the same date that OLN announced the
                      late-September name change to Versus, Dish Network and OLN reached a
                      long term agreement to restore the channel.</p>


                      At the beginning of September 2009, DirecTV
                      pulled Versus from its lineup, as it was unable to reach terms on a
                      rate increase demanded by Comcast. In public statements (including a
                      message shown on the channel which formerly carried Versus), DirecTV
                      scolded Comcast for its "unfair and outrageous demands", and considered
                      the company to be "simply piggish" in its demands for higher rates, as
                      it described Versus as "a paid programming and infomercial channel with occasional sporting events."<sup id="cite_ref-33" class="reference"><span>[</span>34<span>]</span></sup>
                      On March 15, 2010 an agreement was reached between the sides and Versus
                      returned to DirecTV's lineup. The channel was returned to its original
                      package on the service, Choice Xtra.<sup id="cite_ref-resolution_34-0" class="reference"><span>[</span>35<span>]</span></sup></p>

                      because u don't have one. They may of lost NBC but still picked up ABC.

                      While also maintaining ESPN and TNT.

                      To put it in perspective - hockey tried to start their own station because ESPN wouldn't give them a big deal in which they then had to sell a few years later

                      theres no reaching - thats facts


                      [/quote]ESPN/ABC offered them a sour deal, so they took a good deal with NBC, the same that the NBA did when they went from NBC to ABC, I still dont see your point

                      You're reaching cause you're hating, its all good man, you can admit it

                      NBA ON NBC: "When NBC Sports' contract with the NBA expired in 2002, the broadcast rights were passed to ABC, which began airing games the next season. NBC had made a four-year, $1.3 billion bid in the spring of 2002 to renew its NBA coverage, but the league instead made six-year deals worth $4 billion with ESPN, ABC and TNT.[7]"

                      NHL ON ESPN: "Though the two are friends, Bettman had a tough message to deliver: Days
                      earlier, ESPN told the league that it would make an aggressive bid on
                      the NHL's media package. Bettman told Roberts that ESPN's planned bid of
                      $160 million to $170 million per year would test NBC's and Versus'
                      right-to-match clause, which several media executives described as the
                      tightest such clause they had ever seen. The clause gave NBC the right
                      to match any deal the NHL signed with another network"

                      NHL ended up on settling on 10 years 2 bil deal

                          yea but there were other teams close to alot of places in north NY than the Rangers

                          I doubt there are very many Rangers fans that north i the state. They've had closer franchises that have been around along time. Plus while the Sabers only came in 1970, its still been 40 years - im sure thats long enough to build a fan base.

                          Infact they draw better at home than the Rangers draw at home

                          i would bet even buffalo does as well

                          but i mean not for nothing, Buffalo sells out more at home than the Rangers do in a similiar capacity stadium with probably 1/5th of the population
                          [/quote]I guarantee that you're wrong on that one. Buffalo is much closer to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and a few others that it is to NYC

                          And you have it wrong, the last time Buffalo had better attendance than NYR was in 07-08 where they sold out 109% of their games and NYR sold out 100%

                          okay you have to really accept the fact that the percentage of a sellout is stupid...

                          They are based off of a hard number which is obviously pushed...

                          Hard numbers is all that matters

                          you can't say that Rangers sell out this year when they have 100% and they sold out last year when they had 103%....
                          obviously there was another 3 % of tickets that could of been sold and weren't

                          thats why percentages are stupid. Go look at the hard numbers

                          average attendance per game

                          [/quote]You say %'s are stupid, and I feel the same way about your stats, that changes NOTHING just because you said its 'stupid'. Hard numbers are all that matters TO YOU

                          You know how many people MSG holds for hockey games???

                          18,200


                          Its easier for Buffalo to sell more tickets cause they have a bigger arena, but MSG sells out MUCH more consistently

                          ...We can keep this up ALL OFFSEASON sen!!!!!
                          [/quote]

                          but they actually don't... you can't consider 100% a sellout if the next year theysold 103%. That would obviously mean that they had 3% more tickets they could of sold the year before

                          so they really DIDNT sell 100% of their tickets that year
                          [/quote]100% = Sellout
                          103,104,105,106% = Sellout

                          Its OK you can accept it, I still love ya

                              they just didn't give them AS big of a deal. 300-400 Million less stretched out over 10 years.

                              20% less than what NBC - but it didn't matter what ESPN offered because NBC still had the rights to match due to ac ontract they signed
