Ever since a lot of pro sports teams have started their own cable networks, some have gambled and lost. Like for example, The Minnesota Twins (who started Victory Sports). Do you guys think STO could be next?

The difference is, STO has nailed down deals with all the cable and satellite outlets. That is/was the largest hurdle for the Indians, and one that other teams could not get over.

I think the biggest factor is the teams play. Clevelanders have proven time and time again over the last 12 years that they will watch in large numbers if the team is a viable WS contender.

They gotta get this shit with the feed going out corrected though. The natives will start to get really restless if the weekend Tiggers series is marred by those blackout periods.
