It was about 10 years ago, and I was speaking with my father about the Super Bowl. He made the statement that in a decade or so ALL championships would be on ESPN. I in my naive way said, “Can’t happen.” There’s too much money in the networks to allow it to happen.
Today as I look at all the bowl games, 98 percent are on the four-letter viper. This includes the NCAA football playoffs and national championship. A lot of MLB, NFL, (sorry don’t care about NBA), and college hoops are also on “that channel.”
Am I the only one that sees the shrinking number of cable/satellite subscribers and wonders how long this can continue? I must be missing something. Let me know what you see happening.
