    Just an FYI. Trustee for Houston Regional Sports Network is basically saying that Comcast is responsible for collapse of CSN Houston and is trying to recover money for debts from Comcast in court. Probably won't be happen, but it could involve Astros and Rockets obtaining significant amount unpaid media rights.

    From the filing, "Comcast decides to financially cripple the Debtor in order to obtain the Debtor’s assets for itself."

    At this point I don't care. I hope the Astros and Rockets get $1B from Comcast so as to make the teams better but think they will get squat because I can understand Comcats point of view. Astros didn't want to lose money in a network startup which I think is naive. Comcast didn't want to buy CSN after the Astros sued them. And the Rockets got screwed by the Astros and Comcast.

    At least most of Houston can watch the games now me included.
