"This brings us to today. DSG decided to stop paying the Padres and forfeit Bally Sports San Diego’s broadcast rights. They’ll save $60 million a year and probably end the network. While the Padres play in Miami this evening, the network will be showing “Breaking Par,” “Sports Stars of Tomorrow” and “Destination Polaris,” any one of which I might be making up. RSNs often have contracts with NBA and NHL teams in their market, but San Diego doesn’t have any of those. It’s hard to see BSSD as a going concern without the Padres on its air."
