    We aren't the Yankees. We are the Dodgers. Glad we are getting our pride back. But this Yankee comparison is tired. Lets focus on us.
    Never made a statement nor a comparison. Original argument by the mod was we can't make more money on a TV deal then the Yankees .Because we don't have their type of revenue nor were we bigger then them.

    Aside from RSN, Rogers and YES how many more teams have their own networks?

    This is bubblegum change considering the Dodgers ownership group is worth $167 billion.

    So they overpaid for a global brand of a club who less than a year latter flipped them potentially $9 billion in new money? Business isn't your strong suit is it?

    The Dodgers are like the Red Sox, Yankees and Cubs, no matter how much you pay to get them you're pretty much guaranteed a profit eventually.

    I've got Charter and the Lakers channel was included for free in my basic channel lineup. I could be wrong about this but I thought the deal was if another provider like Direct Tv wanted to carry the Lakers channel they couldn't pass the costs onto the customer and had to provide it for free

    You guys are a bit confused about "paying for it or not". It's not going to be a direct payment to get the channel. They tack these RSNs onto your bill against your will. It's included in your package without a direct payment but you're paying for it.

    Thus, the YES Network isn't free. Nor is the Lakers channel.

    This Dodger deal could be the poster child for a change in the landscape of ridiculous RSN deals.

    People who don't even watch baseball will be paying the Dodgers essentially. Same for the Lakers, Angels, and other teams signing new deals. The average non sports fans are getting higher and higher cable bills to support these sports packages.

    You're missing the point. The Dodgers stake paid immediate dividends. Not eventual but overnight $7-9 billion profit. With the potential to earn $1-2 billion additional due to advertising rights on their network.

    The Dodgers are always going to turn a profit. People can hate on their payroll, but that doesn't mean they aren't going to turn a profit. LA, NY, and Boston are always going to. STL might belong there too.

    You forgot the Cubs, but yeah, eventually the team who bought these types of teams wil break even compared to the money they spent, then it's a gold mine from there.
