Hey, Hoynsie: I only know two things in this world ... I am sick of the Tribe crying "mid-market" and that the money is in TV. Can't the Dolans leverage their family's cable experience to turn STO into their primary revenue stream/profit center? When is the Cavs' FSN contract up? Why don't they telecast/simulcast high-rated sports talk radio shows? Telecast poker tournaments held at Gilbert's casino? There are about 15,000 Law & Order reruns out there to buy at a reasonable price. Build a cable network and dedicate the profits on being 15th in payroll each and every year already. What excuses do you suspect the Dolans would volley back to me if posed with these questions? -- Patrick Yarnevic, Lakewood
Hey, Patrick: First, I think Larry Dolan would say that he has no connection to his brother, Charles, and his Cablevision and professional sports empire. Second, Paul Dolan would tell you that STO and the Indians are separate companies connected by the rights deal to air Tribe programming. Third, I think they'd both tell you to cut back on the coffee.
