No, I said this when they bought MLSE, its the "We paid too much for MLSE recovery fee".
They bought the company (really the leafs) for the content.. OOOOPS.. Hockey Strike... budgeted revenue is not there.... rate increase. The Bean counters budget $x revenue from MLSE, and that's not happening.
Ok raise rates.. we'll make even MORE money in perpetuity.
