I think that has more to do with the re-aired game broadcasts.

Maybe to keep the National shows on NFLN and the ESPN/Fox/CBS/NBC channels who pay for national rights happy and get more viewers on them? Idk, it’s dumb. But maybe something protect their big national partners and keep more eyes/ad dollars on them.

I could be wrong but I don't think so. It doesn't sound like Marquee is going to air a postgame show, and they already announced the host of the weekly recap show is one of the dudes already working at Marquee (name escapes me). I don't think NBC Sports had any sort of exclusive right to air Bears-related shows since there are Bears recap shows on NBC and Fox (and maybe elsewhere) on Sunday nights.

In addition to people liking Dempster, they'd like to see Sutcliffe on post-game, so horsefeathers everyone.

I hate Dempster the person but he actually had some good insights IMO when he was subbing as color man. That said, I hate the 3 man booth

Someone posted this on Reddit. Not sure if we knew yet how much Comcast rates would go up yet.

Spending years putting together a network and then essentially abandoning it as soon as you accomplish that goal and get everyone on the hook for $6/month seems like a pretty solid metaphor for the rest of this organization.

Abandoning it? What did I miss?

'Abandon' isn't the right word, but it was more convenient than 'very clearly half-assing it'. Not showing Theo's presser at the end of the year, coming up with the bare minimum of coverage/analysis around the games, etc. To be fair, I haven't even thought about pulling it up since September, but get the strong impression I'm not missing anything.

I read somewhere that MLB has rules against showing Zoom press conferences live (why, I have no idea, but it would explain why it wasn't aired live).

As for the game-adjacent content, we have no idea what might have been planned pre-pandemic. I wasn't thrilled with most of the in-game stuff (Taylor McGregor spending multiple games showing off old memorabilia that no one cares about was pretty painful), but I imagine when we're post-pandemic, the coverage will improve.

It'll probably be back. Everyone is dropping the RSNs right now because other than the occasional college football game, they're literally not airing anything anyone would watch until at least January when the NBA is supposedly coming back.
