49ers officer.

I thought it would be interesting to look at how you think the leagues are looking at this battle between cbs and time warner.

The pga took it on the chin last week because they were not broadcast during one of their four major championships.

I imagine the nfl is freaking out.

3 million people, they are not happy.

When millionaires and billionaires are getting back from their vacations, the players are working hard, there will be a solution because there is too much at stake.

The gold standard of sports, the nfl.

These events don't get broadcast, who is winning?

It is preseason only at this point, but is cbs getting hurt more because they paid so much for the contract?

Cbs is getting hurt and time warner is losing money.

The fans just want to watch the games.

You can take my kids and my house, but don't take my games away.

One of the argumentative point is digital rights.

You think there will be a resolution before this.

Is the nfl in the room when these discussions are happening?

Are they calling time warner and saying fix this or telling cbs to take what they are offering?

There are lots of backroom conversations with any kind of legislation.

It is real money, hundreds of millions or ultimately billions of dollars.

The money is always negotiable.

If it is something more significant than that, nobody is seeing it.

Wax is the step from preseason to the regular season to be the difference maker?

Like your first date and getting married, it is a major step up.

I am surprised it did not happen for the pga championship.

Tiger won the week before and is a ratings bonanza.

But he did not have a good tournament and phil mickelson had a terrible tournament.

There are a few classic events.

The masters is number one.

It the british open.

The nfl is in a whole different galaxy.

That is why the years are working a little slowly right now.

When you talk about fans not getting their foot all, it is like a kid not getting a candy bar.

They will scream and ultimately the parents will give them the candy bar.

Does it wrap up until then?

Or does it not happen until week one?

I think that we see some digits raised before we have a solution.

Fox is launching a new sports network.

They have tried this before and it did not work.

With nbc and comcast competing with espn, does fox have it figured out this time?

They have the money to put into it.

Sports is a global language that is getting stronger every day.
