    By the time hockey and basketball seasons start up a deal will be struck in some capacity. Its the playoffs so regional networks have less value. Plus, Peacock is bidding to take the NBA away from TNT so Comcast will be able to corner that market if they want. $2.8 billion...I figure we are a couple years away from Comcast/Universal going Di$ney on the bit and start canning everyone because ratings aren't good enough. If ESPN can't get good enough ratings no way NBC/Peacock will.

      There's a smoking gun waiting to be found. That's 2 whistleblowers who have unexpectedly died.

        That's the second one, isn't it?


        I don't get down with conspiracy theories. Boeing and their suppliers employ an enormous amount of people. Sometimes people get sick and die for no "good" reason, even now (there's always a reason, but sometimes that reason is rather unsatisfying).

          Yeah....we just had a guy drop dead at his desk a few weeks ago. People on a telecon with him heard a loud thump as his head bounced off his keyboard, and by the time they got there to check on him, he was gone. Otherwise healthy 38-year-old father of 2. No rhyme or reason.

            Woof, I'm sorry to hear that.

            We've all known people that just up and died. Sudden heart attack. Aneurism. Infection they just couldn't kick. It sucks and it's heartbreaking. And it's likely what's going on with the two whistleblowers.


            But all the same...

              It was the jab.

                Well the first one committed suicide but also apparently told people if something happens he didn't kill himself...

                I mean 99% it's suicide but...

                  Dammit, rufus beat me to it. That really sucks for the guy and his family though.

                          I don't know what the Caribbean did to deserve this.

                          • McDonald’s has noticed a drop in sales and particularly that people making under $45k are no longer buying their **** food.

                            i haven’t eaten at one in two decades but all I hear is how expensive it now is, and that many sit down restaurants are the same price.

                            more people need to stop buying this crap. These companies all put people over profit and they should suffer

                                I'd be curious if that's more because they can't afford it or the fact that the wages of the bottom quartile have outpaced inflation and that 45k number doesn't represent the same population size anymore. In other words, can the people previously in that bucket now afford something else?

                                will be interesting if this is also something that impacts YUM, etc.
