The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight

Over at On Frozen Blog, my friend Mike Rucki is annoyed over the whole Versus/DirecTV conflict, a feeling that’s been fueled by the less than impressive performance that the two companies have been turning in via Twitter.

As for me, I have to admit I’m a pretty happy DirecTV subscriber, and I mark the day I turned in my Comcast (the parent company of Versus) cable box as one of the happier days of my adult life.  But given that a total of seven Caps games are going to be on Versus this season, I’d hope that DirecTV would give serious consideration to coming to an agreement sooner rather than later.

Of course, this is money we’re talking about, so we shouldn’t expect this dispute to get resolved until a few minutes before the puck drops on the Versus NHL season premier on October 1.
