So the news that had everyone creaming their underpants last year, the NEW CUBS NETWORK has been the reason the cubs cannot project spending for the big contract or extensions. I guess nobody wrote an algorithm to project their estimated one million dollars per broadcast adding 162 million dollars to their pocket change. Maybe the cubs were expecting the bulls or hawks jump ship and pay them to air their games and the CSN or NBCSN or whatever its called got a little pissy and signed those other three.

You would think some hotel revenue, upgraded food, in park swag would be multiple reasons to be able to add, but maybe they finally figured out how many hundred million dollars its gonna cost to set up and run a network?

Priorities.
