It would take funding from the likes of Exxon and Wal-Mart. They've cornered the sports market.

I heard somewhere close to 50% of your monthly cable bill is for ESPN. Anybody care to elaborate?

The only poll that matters is the selection committee. If the selection committee is listening to Jesse Palmer and David Pollack to make their rankings, then that's the COMMITTEE's fault, not ESPN.

How many "big games" were on SEC Network? The answer is zero. The big games were on ESPN and ABC. The biggest SEC games were on CBS, since CBS has "dibs" on the SEC game of the week. Hyping the SEC would drive viewers AWAY from ABC/ESPN to their competitor, CBS. They even brought College GameDay to the campus of that week's CBS game on multiple occasions this season. The SEC Network is not a place where they stick marquee matchups, it's a place for Kentucky alumni to watch a noon game against UT Martin, or for LSU fans to catch the Sam Houston State game. Auburn-Alabama and Mississippi State-Mississippi are CBS games.

That's not true. Not even close. ESPN is the single biggest line item on your cable bill, but it's not 50%.

What drives up your cable TV bill: Sports and lots more

Quote:
Disney's ESPN, according to the Charlottesville, Va.-based research firm SNL Kagan, charges cable operators by far the industry's highest fees -- $5.13 per month. Virtually all other channels charge less than $1 monthly, such as CNN (57 cents) and MTV (39 cents). And ESPN insists operators carry the channel on basic cable -- so they can't recoup their costs by putting it on a pay tier.
The $5.13 is for the full slate (i.e. not just "regular" ESPN).

Yeah I just read ESPN is over $5.00, and other channels average 0.26 cents each.
