sperlingreich writes "The rights to broadcast Major League Baseball were recently scooped up by ESPN for a cool $5.6 billion which is nothing compared to the $15.2 billion the network paid the NFL for “Monday Night Football”. Some cable operators are now saying the skyrocketing costs of sports programming is out of control and unrealistic."

The solution to this dilemma is easy: Don't pay it. If none of the cable operators is going to be willing to pay that much the sports organizations will lower their prices and expectations.
