The always lovely Rachel Cohen of the Associated Press says the NFL is getting ready to negotiate new contracts with its TV partners. Mike Reynolds of Multichannel News writes about […]

MLB Network Now On Dish Network

Just received this e-mail from MLB announcing that Dish Network has finally picked up MLB Network. There’s no press release yet, but this is a good way to inform everyone who’s signed up for commercial e-mails from MLB on this latest development. Dish had been one of the major holdouts to pick up MLB Network. […]

Bringing In The Monday Links

I thought this weekend would be quiet and I would be able to do some good blogging like Saturday and Sunday linkage, some Sunday thoughts and a few press releases thrown in, but it turned out to be very busy. Don’t understand it, but it happened. Can’t go back now. Just moving forward so it’s […]

Time For Some Tuesday Links

As the temps reach the high 70’s in Southern New England, it’s time to bring you the linkage on this Tuesday. In Sports Business Journal, John Ourand takes away ESPN’s arch-rivalry with NBC from the new book “Those Guys Have All The Fun: Inside The World of ESPN.” USA Today’s Mike McCarthy notes a couple […]

Todd Spangler from Multichannel News reports that ESPN has released a new […]

The Monday Back to Work Linkage

Let’s do some links on this back to work Monday. Many of the links will focus on the NCAA Tournament so let’s get cracking. Starting with John Ourand and Michael Smith of Sports Business Journal, they report that Fox is about to sign a new cable rights deal with the Big 12 Conference that would […]

Bringing Out Some Monday Links

Ok, time to get cracking on the linkage. Haven’t done any since Thursday and the weekend was busy for me as I was out of the house for most of Saturday and Sunday so it didn’t make for conducive blogging conditions. We have a lot of stuff to get to today and a couple of […]

Doing Tuesday Links

Time for the links. Lots of stuff to get to. From Sports Business Daily, we learn that the Sporting News has officially taken over Fanhouse. A sad day really as the Fanhouse site was very good and had many good writers on staff (Jay Mariotti excepting). Many writers have lost their jobs while others have […]

Bringing Some Wednesday Linkage

Ok, let’s bring you some linkage. Again, in the midst of a lot of stuff, but taking a break to do some now before work really prevents me from blogging. Mike McCarthy at USA Today recaps Phil Simms comments to Sirius XM regarding his Super Bowl incident with Desmond Howard. Michael Hiestand of USA Today […]

Some Snowy Wednesday Links

On this day of massive snow here in the Northeast, I’ll provide you with some linkage. Crazy day as local meteorologists first predicted 4-8 inches, then as the storm organized, the totals were revised upward and upward. Now, it appears we have more on the ground here. Not quite the perfect storm, but damn close. […]

Saturday Links

Let’s do some linkage on this Saturday. Trying to provide you with a full week of linkage for the first time in a while. And look for reviews of Pony Excess, the last ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, and Lombardi, HBO’s documentary on the late coach. Here are the links. Mike Demenchuk of Multichannel News […]

Sports has made a name for itself in sports investigations. Jason Humphries of Reuters has International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge hopeful that the US TV rights for […]

Finally, Some Linkage

Well, it’s been a long ten days since I last did linkage. First, it was the Thanksgiving holidays, then work became crazy. I was able to do press releases as they came into the Fang’s Bites inbox, but you’ve been owed some so let’s get to it without further delay. Mike Reynolds at Multichannel News […]
