Don't put it past them. We saw it in Europe for soccer


Of course Sky Sports was unharmed by plugging in EPL however, the mere move past the stated contract time of June 30th allowed them to recoup a god portion (some say up to 30%) of the contracts despite the fact that the ratings for soccer were HIGHER.

Disney et al have been absolutely killed as advertisers have not come back. They are going to try to make buck anyway they can. I fully expect spring football to be something like a 30% drop in the contract revenue. Of course you might have hit on how they would do this, cutting their payouts to pair with the lost basketball broadcasts.
