My prediction was that the increase would put you somewhere between $3 million and $5 million. I did expect it to be on the lower side of that, but I always predicted $3-5, as there are so many variables. I don't remember what you said, but I remember many saying $12 million, which I said was nuts (I thought you were one of those folks).
Nonetheless, the $6.9 million each team gets is spectacular, and far exceeded my expectations. Aresco and company did an solid job. How are those on the AAC Board feeling about it? I don't drop in much, since they strangely banned me a while back.
It will be interesting to see what the MW gets. They MW has the advantage of "going second." They also have the advantage of CBS Sports, and NBC, and the other streaming content carriers needing content. I would predict somewhere around $4 million at this point.
