As a DC resident, I used to root for any DC team that wasn't playing Boston, but Caps fans became so obnoxious even before finally winning a Cup that I wound up rooting for Vegas to beat them. Love Z, but fuck the Caps.
I suspect NESN would have measurably less leverage with cable providers if they offered their product as a stand-alone streaming service.
I'm strongly thinking about canceling DirecTV. Without the sports packages, I still pay $150/mo. Since I'm out of market, I need to pay for Boston sports...
I'm rooting for the Bucs in a similar way to me rooting for the 2001 Colorado Avalanche. You want good things for players who have been Boston sports institutions...unless they're playing against a Boston team.
