CBS, NBC Fighting Over Rights To Air Upcoming Patriots-Broncos Matchup
Published December 7, 2011
ENOUGH ALREADY: YAHOO SPORTS’ Matthew Darnell wrote he is “not sure” what NBC and CBS are “fighting about -- there are clear-cut rules for how this works.” NBC can “indeed swap its game for another game, but only after Fox and CBS have both chosen to ‘protect’ one of their games.” Either CBS “protected the Broncos vs. Patriots game or it didn't.” Darnell did mention Patriots Owner Robert Kraft “can have considerable influence over anything he wants to influence” (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 12/6).
