DIRECTV is valuing it at a different rate, which we believe is below FMV and we're in the process of negotiating and reaching a compromise that both organizations feel is fair and a good value. One large provider, Comcast, and four smaller providers believe the value is there and have signed on.
Wait, so what large provider other than Comcast has a deal done?

PS - **** the Astros and **** Jim Crane. I will never spend a dime on that organization, ever again.

None, currently.

Just a little background on this that you guys probably already know. DirecTV is considered the lynch pin in most of these negotiations. They are more hard line than the others and most believe that if they agree, the others will fall in line quickly, which is why the negotiating parties are going to go hard and heavy with them first.

Jeff,

I think your piece needs its own thread. It is a major piece of revelation and can get buried in this rather long thread.

So basically the garbage ass Astros the one's messing up the whole thing?? If thats the case im offically not a fan of there team. Its rediculous how GARBAGE they have been and want more money?? SMH take your garbage ass self of a team to another city because if this is true I'm done supporting the Astros. The Astors are the NBA's Bobcats how about at least make the playoffs before even thinking about asking for more money

I would say boycott the Astros but it seems like the city has been doing that for 2 years now.

Irrelevant franchise is irrelevant.

Even with the astros being one of worst team in the history of baseball they are still more popular than the rockets.

I don't know why the rockets try to get in bed with them. They are going to look out for themselves. You can bet there will be a deal before astros season.

It's more about coverage area than popularity. The Astros and MLB, as I understand it, have a much wider reach into this region of Texas than the Rockets do.

Although they are my fav. team in the city, I can acknowledge that my Astros ****ed up. That said, I can't even blame 'em.

Jeff,

Do I remember correctly, didn't the Texans try and block the arena deal when the Rockets were trying to get a new arena?

No, but the Rockets didn't help the Oilers when they wanted to build a stadium for football AND basketball.
