Cablevision, Fox feud continues to rob fans of big games

This can't really drag on until the Super Bowl, can it?

The Fox-Cablevision silliness that has deprived over 3 million viewers in the New York/New Jersey/Philadelphia area of the World Series Games 1 and 2 and a New York Giants football game (against the Lions, but still ...) and other Fox programming rages on and, at this point, maybe it isn't ridiculous to think that it could extend into February, ticking off a new group of people seemingly every day.

Next up on the list of the irked: New York Jets fans. Their team is 5-1 and they're, well, Jets fans. They turn out en masse for the NFL Draft, for heaven's sake. Just as it's not a good idea to tease zoo animals, it's wrong to take a game against the Green Bay Packers away from Jets fans.

So far, they're reacting heroically, the way people do in a disaster, by doing things like posting a list of 300 tri-state bars with DirecTV and videos in which Cablevision poohbah Jim Dolan showcases his musical stylings.
