Comcast?
Has anybody noticed the lack of Comcast being mentioned in the new media guide?
In years past, there was usually a logo plus a blurb about the games they were going to cover and a list of who was going to be doing the games. Not so that I can find this year. And, in checking the football schedule on the website, there is no "TV" icon next to the first three homes games - contests that Comcast would usually do before the ESPN package kicked in.
Has the economy caught up with athletics?

Starting to wonder if this has caved in this year.

I noticed this as soon as our schedule was released. I figured that the Comcast schedule may come out later, but the lack of mention in the media guide is an ominous sign. If it happens, we will be taking a HUGE step back in TV coverage. I know a lot of people in the Comcast coverage area who watch our games. Who knows what the future holds? Maybe ALL of our games may eventually be mid-week so we can get the free ESPN coverage. Gee, I thought all the money from playing the big boys and the SF game would allow us to continue the Comcast coverage. How did we do it before we played all these big games?

The CSN Chicago logo is in the media guide listed to the right of the games they are televising this season. You all must have missed it.

What page was that? I was checking the media related stuff from 207 up to 212 and the back cover.
Strange that it's still not on the schedule that's on the website when all of the other games are listed as TV.
