Bear with me..... When I was a kid, Saturday night was boxing night. My mother hated it but it was a male thing and we watched it. Sonny Liston battling Cassius Clay for the title, and the whole thing with Mohammed Ali and the draft. We all knew who these people were. Everybody in the world knew who the heavyweight champion of the world was, as any given time. Then came Don King - Kash Is King - and he singlehandedly destroyed boxing within about 10 years. Go outside, ask anybody who the champ is, nobody will know. Now, we have free broadcast TV - no cable. And ESPN is doing the same thing with championship sports. We don't get baseball or basketball playoffs until the finals. Ya gotta pay to watch that stuff, don't ya know? Which we aren't going to do because it's just not that important to us.
And this takes us to net neutrality. They day it becomes pay-to-play, it just isn't any fun anymore and you just don't get to be involved in that stuff because you just can't afford it.And then only the few will pay so they hike up the prices to make profits.
