Another Reason to Hold Comcast in Contempt

[I]t looks as if big money wins out again against the little folks.

- - Cowboys' fan married to a Packers' fan faced with the possiblity of paying extra to see the biggest contest of the regular NFL season tonight

Comcast is only broadcasting what is arguably the biggest football game*--tonight's contest between the Green Bay Packers (10-1) and the Dallas Cowboys (10-1)--of the regular NFL season on pay-per-view. The NFL and Comcast are in a "political" battle over providing more football games as part of the basic cable package to customers, and as usual, the customers--at least the average ones--are the losers.

*If the New England Patriots were not completely in another universe far from everyone else, then the previous New England-Indianapolis contest would have been the bigger game.
