mlb- Tigers TV Contract

from the detnews, Tigers fans have always been able to catch their team on free television. That won't be the case this season. Negotiations between Channel 50, which broadcast 25 games in 2004, and the Tigers dissolved this week, leaving cable network Fox Sports Net and its 110-game schedule as the Tigers' sole TV outlet in 2005.

Looks like Tiger owner Mike Ilitch has been taking lessons from Bill Wirtz, owner of the NHLs Chicago Blackhawks. The Blackhawk home games are not televised, thereby upsetting a huge number of faithful hockey fans.
Ilitch should step in and make a deal, but it is all about money these days for Ilitch.
