Red Sox not interested in making NESN a decent channel

I'm giving up hope that NESN will ever be a decent channel. Though I have hoped they would take advantage of the TV "genius" Tom Werner and create some compelling programming, they have officially announced their lack of interest in doing that. The unofficial word had come in long ago.

There will be tremendous Red Sox content available...on Comcast's On Demand section. No doubt for a nominal fee.

Red Sox "Sales and Marketing" guy is quoted as saying: "...we think it s a benefit to all of our fans...Having Red Sox On Demand is going to be a great addition to all the other ways to enjoy Red Sox baseball."

Uh, Sammy boy, "all" of your fans don't have Comcast. They are much more likely to have NESN. When I was looking for a "great addition," I wanted the programming, but I didn't want to have to get an additional service with an additional fee.

The first priority with this deal is money for the team. Otherwise they'd put it all on NESN. But then they'd have to bump a few infomercials. And we can't have that, can we?

What a sad joke!
