Of course, you leave out the last line of your post,<quoted text>Here's what I wrote:
"If major league sports ever went back to the TV model of the '60s and '70s, with a local flagship station and regional affiliates for the teams, cable would be dead as a doornail."
No mention of specific markets. I correctly indicated the state of sports programming 30-40 years ag0.
Boston and New York are atypical markets? For sports coverage in that time? Hardly. The same situation existed in Buffalo for the Sabres, St. Louis for the Cards and Blues, Chicago for the Cubs, Atlanta for the Braves (how do you think WTBS got so much exposure when cable came along), Los Angeles, Detroit for the Tigers and Wings and Washington for the Caps and Bullets.
You got caught being stupid again and you're desperately trying to dig your way out. Grow the feck up.
And overreact like the Masshole that you are to my post that simply said,<quoted text>That was the norm in all major league sports until around 1985 except for the NFL.
You then, in your pathological need to try to correct me, cite examples of a whole bunch of places that aren't, in fact, around here.<quoted text>
Free TV carrying all of a teams games prior to 1985? Not around here, Masshole. I hope you miss the entire game tonight.
