GAZING INTO THE FUTURE: Fox Sports President Eric Shanks, when asked if a Super Bowl on cable is in the future, said, "I don't think in the foreseeable future, but who knows 10, 15, 20 years down the line. The line is being blurred between over-the-air broadcast and cable. There's a generation growing up today who probably has no idea what over-the-air television even means because they or their parents just get a bill in the mail every month and they pay it. I think the economics for the foreseeable future will keep it on broadcast television" (Fox).
