Comcast bought NBC (uh, the biggest cable company buys one of the biggest networks but that's no problem with the anti-trust boys, right?) and almost immediately Dick Ebersol quits NBC sports. Ebersol has been a hugely creative force in TV sports, from the Olympics to the popular Sunday night football. Ebersol's fingerprints have been all over the NFL and many of the best sports productions for decades and the instant Comcast (the company that could screw up the formula for water but then still overcharge for it) buys NBC he quits. Coincidence? Hardly. Comcast is a scourge upon the earth, and they've proved it again.
