A few thoughts on that media deal that sounds so great. First of all it is


backloaded. The actual payment schedule isn't published as far as I can find, but the first year's disbursements are far less than the last year's. It's a 12-year deal, so it's really hard to determine if it's all that great in 2032, until we get to 2032. Secondly, a lot of that programming is ESPN+ which is not ideal, and in fact, is less attractive than what the MWC is doing. Finally, production for the ESPN+ distribution is on the home school, and it is in the contract that it must meet ESPN standards (whatever they are). I'd imagine that outfitting Canvas for HD streaming would not be cheap.

Maybe it's not as bad a deal as I think, but certainly not as shiny as the newspapers glossed it over as. Maybe a new deal with some MWC added would be a lot better, but I'm not sold that Aresco is any better at this than Hair. He just sold out to his buddies at the 4 letter network. They currently have no GOR, but that could easily change with an expansion, making any shot at the mythical P5 spot that much more difficult.

If the MWC collapsed, we'd have no choice but to take the best option. Without that collapse, I think we're better off continuing to try and make this house liveable.
