Angelos lost another appeal this week in the MASN case. He plans to appeal again despite having no chance of winning, sure would be nice for the appeals court to refuse to hear his case.

Just pay the money! Havana Pete is corrupt!


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

The timeline is that the next court up the line will decide early next year whether to hear the case, then if so it will take them another year to make a decision. Then Angelos can appeal to the US Supreme Court. In addition, after the MASN lawsuit is over the Os can sue since they are a separate entity. Ideally the appellate court declines to hear the case and it comes to a rapid end.

The vultures are circling the Angelos carcass, see the new article in the Balt Sun. MLB will have to approve any ownership changes, even to family members, and there is no chance that the league allows the Angelos family to hang on after they sued another club.

Any new owner is going to want to also purchase the Os stake in MASN but will MLB allow this debacle to continue or will they force a deal where the Lerners are able to buy out their TV rights? (For Nats fans hoping for a big payday, a sale of the Nats TV rights from MASN to the Lerners will likely cost more than the original $450 million that they paid for the team.) Probably the best case is a new owner for the Os who works out a better relationship with the Nats, both teams have full equity in their own broadcast rights, but the cost of getting out from under MASN is that the Nats allow the Os to continue to broadcast in the DC area.

Can we broadcast in Baltimore? Otherwise, they shouldn't be allowed to broadcast in DC.

Currently the Nats do broadcast in Baltimore. I'd imagine the ratings are non-existent.

BTW, MLB just approved a switch of the Baltimroe club's control person form Peter Angelos to his son John.

The Nats games appear in Baltimore. A business decision, not a fan decision.
