I'm not a fan of the Sabres, Rangers, Islanders, or Knicks, so MSG being dropped by Time Warner doesn't affect me at all. But what does bother me is that I just realized that Fuse got dropped from Time Warner in the midst of this nonsense.

For those that haven't heard - NYS Attorney General told MSG and TWC to resume talking.

I would tell him to go f himself. The government has no right getting into this matter between a private company and a licensed monopoly.

One of the reasons is that Buffalo gets something like 5% of Time Warners profits in Buffalo so everytime customers cancel the city is losing money, so they called in the attorney general.

Another city that votes left and can't figure out why it's dying. I'm so done with ny. No reason for he attorney general to have any say. It's private business. Anyway, I think it's helping the amerks. Many time Warner folks can't watch the sabres this weekend so they might be saying, hey let's go watch Chewey, Kassian and tropper. Plus, I think word is spreading that they are hard working. Something those fans aren't getting and wanting. I someone actually say to fire lindy and call up Ronnie rolston. Haha, easy killer. But he is getting the most out of these kids. Not sure how he would fair itch prima donnas in the NHL. That's something he won't have to worry about here.

Fuse is part of MSG which is why it went away when MSG pulled the plug.

franchise fee's/profits.. gotcha.. either way, the city is losing money assuming people are cancelling as much as they say they are.
