Dish has earned a reputation in recent years as one of the industry’s toughest negotiators, and has not had HBO or Cinemax on its service since 2018. Univision was removed from Dish for nearly nine months in 2018 and 2019. In the fall of last year, Dish cut ties with a passel of regional sports networks that had been owned by Fox but were sold by Walt Disney to Sinclair Broadcast after Fox sold the bulk of its cable and studio assets. … [Read more...] about NFL, Dish Strike New Carriage Contract After Nearly Three Months of Haggling

“It helps greatly when you have a guy that accepts a challenge and can play at the level of Darius Slay. I don’t think he played at that level last year, but I think a lot went into that,” said Davis on a media call with reporters this week. “He had been there for awhile, obviously wasn’t happy with the situation there and now he goes to a place where he’s like, ‘hey they want me, they respect me.’ Typically, we do see players who still have it in the tank and I’m sure that he does, they make a nice little jump that first year somewhere else.

And as we learned from the St. Louis Cardinals, one positive test doesn’t mean you only have one positive case. If one player tests positive on a Saturday before a game, and he has been spending time in close proximity to teammates all week, how do you know how many positive cases you truly have?
