    I have regular cable. I'm thinking about moving so I can get Dish Network though. Not soley for TV, but the area here is nice, except the 4,922,934,239 kids all over the place.

    The NFL can take the NFL Network and pound sand as far up their rumps as the fans can pound it.

    DON'T DO THIS! THIS IS PRECISELY WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO! IN THE LONG RUN, YOU ARE SIMPLY SCREWING YOURSELF!

    I don't like monopolies,(like the NFL and the cable companies) so it pains me to have to defend the cable companies in this case. This is a case of high stakes extortion on some, not all, fans.

    Either you pay to have a dish put in(ok for some, bad for others) or your cable company puts in the program THEN CHARGES YOU UNTIL YOUR EYEBALLS ROLL INTO YOUR HEAD.

    Either way, dude, YOU PAY MORE. The NFL is trying to see how big of suckers football fans really are. Are you willing to pay ANYTHING to see your team?

    If there was no system in place, I wouldn't be on a rant.

    But friends, the broadcasters across the nation paid the Mean Giant billions upon billions of dollars so fans like me can see the game. Then the NFL tells THEM(AND US) that they can't get the contract unless they allow the NFL to COMPETE with them by allowing only EXCLUSIVE broadcasts. Then they tell us at home to pay up or go to hell. You can't put it in any other context.

    AMERICA:love monopolies or leave it!

    There are few things that set me off more than this hideous ripoff.

    LOL-the joke will eventually be on you when the NFL dictates you pay $30 bucks to see every Packer game...just like Pay-Per-View.
    I see the advantage for putting in a DISH system...and I was until I realized DISH AND DIRECT were being used as the club to beat me on the head. I'm absolutely no fan of Charter cable...but the real problem is NOT THE MEDIUM...it's the MEAN GIANT ...who thinks fans can be played like a bad accordian.
