I thought Sirius had all the sports content?

Sirius gets the most important part, the NCAA basketball tournament.

When it comes to college sports, XM stomps the Dog like a grape.

"I thought Sirius had all the sports content?"

They can spend all the money in the world. They dont have the ONE sport thats worth listening too when you cant watch it. I'll let you guess what sport im talking about.

And its not Curling.

Scott, I agree, Although I am not a fan of that sport. its the only one I ever heard playing from a garage or someone was listening to while working on a car or mowing the lawn or while at work.

LOL.. are you sure its not Curling? LOL

I only listen to THAT sport if I am having difficultly falling asleep.

Not a bad strategy for a radio company to invest in something unwatchable. Guess this explains the Oprah signing too.

CONTENT IS KING! CONTENT IS KING! CONTENT IS KING!

oh crap! we;re talking about XM????

Baseball is the only sport worth listening to? Well, I hate to break it to you, but there are plenty of people, myself included, that might like to listen to their favorite team on the radio. I live in Arizona, and listen to every Dolphin game I can on Sirius, because they are my favorite team and never get to watch them on tv since I don't have any sport packages in my apartment.

It's a personal opinion, and I will listen to NBA and NFL any chance I get if I can't watch my favorite teams on tv. And just for your information, baseball is quite boring, I love the sport, but I can't sit there listening to it on the radio. Nothing happens, unlike basketball up and down. Football could be that way, but alot of times the teams are moving the ball.

NHL still isn't considered a sport in america.

For college sports on satrad, there's XM, XM, and XM.

I got to hear the U of A and Kansas game the other night, and that was on sirius.

Back to the subject at hand...

I said it's great, to be, a Tennessee Vol. I said it's great, to be, a Tennessee Vol.

I certainly won't be listening to Kesling on XM... if only it were John Ward that might be different. He was the type of play-by-play guy that made you mute the TV and turn the radio on. Anyway, Go Vols! Upset those Mich... LSU Tigers (sorry, got confused for a second just as Les Miles probably is too).
