I don't care whos fault it is, but the Magic management and Brighthouse are the ones looking dirty in this deal. I'm over it, Brighthouse has been dropped! Now I'm waiting for my DirectTV to get installed.

I say, "We the People of Orlando, stand up and unite together to form a boycott of anything Orlando Magic related. There is always power in numbers, if everyone were to boycott the Magic for one game or until the games are aired on our local TV, we shouldn't give any attention to either side of this debacle. Think about it, no one showing up to the actual game at the Arena. If this were to happen, are you going to tell me that someone from the Magic wouldn’t get on the phone after noticing no one in the building for a game and say,“enough is enough, we’re loosing a lot of money here and need this to end immediately?” Boycott anything and everything Magic! I know what most people here are thinking, it’s not the Magic, but rather the networks! Hey! We don’t really give a flying !Beep! All we know is that there isn’t a magic game on TV for us to watch, end of story! Trust me, I can guarantee you all that there will be a magic game on everyone’s TV next week if we were all to stand united on this issue and Boycott anything and everything Magic related. For those of you fortunate to have tickets to the next game, take one simple quarter of the game and stand outside. Can you imagine the press on something as large as this? The people of Orlando (those that are fans of the magic, anyways, and everyone else for that matter) need to be remind that these big companies do not control us but rather we them, respectfully. As it stands now, they’re putting themselves first rather than the people of Orlando. This entire issue can be resolved by us, right now. Until we all see a Magic game on our TV sets, Orlando Magic Who? I’m a big fan like everyone else here, but we should control this destiny and not them, period! Who’s coming with me!!!

Soothsayer, I'm with you. I will not buy anything the Magic has to sell. I like the Celtics and I will go back to supporting that team!
