Sheesh, this is a cranky thread.
I have never bitched about regionaly broadcasting, but heres why I dont have Sunday Ticket
1) I live in a townhome and there are rules about any sort of dishes being put up. Im simply not ALLOWED to
2) The cost isnt $159. That is the cost if you are already paying for direct TV and already have all the equipment. Its a joke for you to say its 'only' $159.
3) You say 'why not get some guys together to help pay for it.' Well quite frankly, how do you decide what games you are going to watch? You cant watch all the games at the same time, and generally, not everybody wants to watch the same games.
As for the dorms comment
Some places force you to stay in dorms your freshman and sometimes your sophomore year. There simply is not enough student housing around where you can just not live in the dorms. Secondly, it really is a good way to meet people your freshmen year
