Even though ESPN was able to block the FOX telecast of the Giants game in most parts of the country, intrepid fans were able to watch the game on the Internet, proving how porous old media is getting.
Out Watertown FOX affiliate likely enraged the fans when they announced they are unable to carry the game, because ESPN has the rights to football on Monday nights. I tried to explain the concept to a fan at Fort Pearl, who just couldn't accept the subordination of fans to corporate media greed.
The Giants game was slated to be played Sunday in Minnesota, but snow damage to the Metrodome forced moving the game to Detroit. FOX was allowed to broadcast the game to NYC and Minnesota.
Instead NNY fans had to be content with the ESPN game pitting Baltimore against Houston....Big Deal !
Now you know how I feel....All these years channel 7 has bypassed the JETS games to air the Giants or Bills.
