Only two of us would read it, but I feel like there's an unwritten book out there that would cover the MSG-RedBulls yearly *completely never discussed, ever* contract renewal deadline brinksmanship deathwatch that renews every spring like some bizarre 1,000 mile salmon migration. 

 

Like...every year our season starts on March 3rd or whatever and February 28th dudes are sitting around a table going "well....I just don't know...."

 

No one has ever heard of a 2 year contract? No one can ever get this deal done before the end of February? Rangers are trading half their players away and Knicks season has been over since November...da fuq else is MSG going to do from May on? So strange.

Is MSG is holding out for no away broadcast studio?
Just have Steve and Shep in a small office, each watching the feed on their laptops.
Next year, their smart phones.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

MSG deal should be done soon. Last year it was announced March 1st. Maybe same this year?

Regardless, agreed that the announcement so close to the start of the season every year is absurd.

it means that MSG will re-broadcast the matches at least 4 times. Love that about MSG.

Now if only they'd stop showing the final score to the game they're re-airing on the ticker scroll....

Reminds me of a gag on 30 Rock..

 

"So much of television is really not fit for children or Christians or the elderly, so what if there was a black bar on the lower half of your TV screen that kept you from seeing bad things? Like nudity. Or soccer."

2-1 good guys?

Columbus aren't pushovers but I'm confident in our depth to at least get a result. Worst case scenario get out with a point.


LONG LIVE METRO

MSG deal announced.

I just went to set my DVR and the listings still say 'tba' on MSG channel.

 

 

I'm not too worried about it, just mentioning it.


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.
