Versus v. Direct TV

I know there's about a dozen posts on this subject and the last time I posted I got major cracked on, but By God I just watched the USA Canada hockey Olympic finals. It was awesome, and I'm not a hockey fan. (I saw the poll about the Olympics too).

Someone earlier said if Lance wasn't a player in the TdF nobody cared if Directv carried Versus or not. Well, I'm not a Lance fan and I want to watch the TdF. The big money maker for Versus is hockey, not Lance or the TdF.

After tonite if Directv doesn't suck up to Comcast there's gonna be some major problems with sports fans who wouldn't otherwise give a rip about cycling, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

We are selling our home and moving in a couple weeks. If there's still no Versus on Directv, I'm pulling the plug on them!

Thats the reason why I didnt go to Directv tv. When I called them last month they said they have no plans of being able to get VS. So I know have Dish.

I've had DTV for years, but if they don't have the Vs by the time the NHL playoffs start, they're done.
