My memory is that it didn’t work out so well. The reason it did not work out is because no cable network would carry the product, mainly because they were FOX back then and FOX said carry FSN and not Victory or you will not get any of the FOX channels. Now FOX is basically out of sports and most other TV. I have no clue who may be able to step now though. Everyone on here just assumes someone will pick up the rights, but if it is true Bally owes so much for TV rights, not many broadcasting companies will be able to take on that. This is a much bigger story and people on here may think. We actually may not be seeing too many games this year if something is not worked out soon during bankruptcy. I wonder if this will start to be a fall of some of these TV deals that so many leagues were touting, and paying huge sums to players because of. Now the bills are due by the TV stations for those rights and they cannot pay it. There was talks awhile back that Twins should be up for a good contract soon, but maybe they will not have any TV money coming in soon.
