i will never ever set foot in camden yards unless it is to watch the washington nationals spank the orioles in a world series!..

per this blogger's description to be found here angelos, with the support of the major league baseball mafia, has made it very difficult and expensive for nationals' fans to watch their games..

here i have reproduced the bloggers description:

I’ve been trying to do a piece on the state of our nations capital, and I’ve finally got enough material and motivation to do so. But ill still keep it brief, be cause that is how we do. Now DC is supposed to getting a baseball team, now they moved them down all fine and dandy but they didn’t have one minor detail in place, a TV deal. Because we all know tv + sports aren’t big in today’s society. So going down to the wire as the season starts the deal was reached, there will only be around 70 games shown in the DC area on the local UPN & FOX channels (owned by Rupert Murdoch). Why? Well because Mr. Oriole, the owner Peter Angelos straight up cock blocked it. He made it so that he had a bit under 100 Nats games air on his newly formed tv network and so he could make a profit (HE ph33rs the completion of the Nats). But here is the curveball, since this is completion to the cable giants Comcast’s own Comcast sportsnet there is no way in hell they will carry Angelo's network. So if you really want all the Nats games your only choice is DirectTV (Also owned by Rupert Murdoch).. Which surprise surprise will generate a monopoly of the DC market for Murdoch but it will put even more money back into Angelos' pocket. Ill go in say it, FUCK YOU PETER ANGELOS (No comment on Murdoch.. his son did start Rawkus :P). And Baseball isn’t even my favorite sport.
