    Yeah, I think Dish isn't worth it. It costs less because the options are less. You always get what you pay for. DTV is worth it. It costs more, but you literally have the option of having almost every channel offered in the US.

    We don't really call the shots when we are on the road. The other team has an AD as well. Some people will complain to simply complain. Game gets picked up on TV and people complain.

    You can either attend a game, find it on TV, find it on the internet, or listen on the radio. Pretty simple if you ask me. Or we can simply find more things to bitch and moan about.

    "Call FSN, they will work with you." This isn't like fixing your cell phone bill people. This is coordinating a contract to televise a game. It is common sense, you don't have to agree with everything, but lets be real with some of these comments. I have been pretty critical of our marketing department, or lack of our marketing department, but to make it sound like it is simple to get a TV game is not accurate.
    Everyone just relax, all right? Believe me, if there's one thing Ron Burgundy knows, it's women.

    if you know what your doing, you can get every channel offered in the world on Dish Network, for practically nothing

    Fsn covers our main recruiting area like ND, SD, MN, IA, AND WI. Its the primary channel for legit teams like the Twins. Its considered a local channel in all the above markets and all cable and satellite companies have it included in basic channels. 99% of potential students and recruits live in these markets plus you can get Fsn anywhere for twelve bucks. We may see more markets but it doesn't matter because we don't recruit those areas much so its not impactful. But I think FSn had more viewers and Minneapolis should be top priority. Bad move but its better than last year.

    I was just commenting to what Shawn was saying how FSN is for the Twin Cities market only. Just being one of the few that stick up for lakes once in a while

    Comments on the Kansas FCS game:
    If this were a bison home game, NDSU would have the rights to negotiate the TV contract. But it is not, and Kansas has the TV rights.

    FCS is better than no TV, right?. Because the game is going to be on FCS, NDSU might have the opportunity to try to get the game on FSN (in the NDSU market) also, due to the fact that FSN is part of the Fox network. Possible, but not likely IMO.

    FSN might be obligated by the Fox Network to carry a national game vs. the NDSU vs. Kansas game however.
