- The Bucs indicate 2014 will be blackout-free.
- Courts ruled in favor of Ed O'Bannon in his suit against the NCAA, meaning athletes are entitled to a bigger share of the business of college sports.
- UCF's athletic director sent a letter to students & fans regarding the impending changes.
- Just like the Lightning don't want to compete with the Rays in Downtown Tampa, the Spurs don't want a football team moving to town...unless they get paid.
- The Buffalo Bills, who just got hundreds of million dollars in stadium renovations, now apparently need a new stadium. Good use of taxpayer dollars. And they need it so badly that bidders for the up-for-sale franchise are reportedly over-bidding by 50%.
- Finally, Charlotte is learning the hard way that keeping a franchise happy with its arena is hard; they'll fork over to upgrade the nine-year-old Bobcats' home. Will that make them think twice about a potential Rays bid, especially if they have to spend more money on basketball in the early 2020s?
