Exclusive pre- and post-game field access, plus some playoff tickets, to make up for the station's loss of what it had thought was exclusive rights to broadcast the Patriots game.
What do you mean we can only see the Pats game on four stations tomorrow? What's wrong with the other stations?

Jay Fitzgerald hears from a blog reader of his now living in Madagascar - the guy now has a satellite radio that lets him get NPR and he wonders if he'll be able to get Patriots games:

Boyfriend's family Christmas party in New Hampshire or couch in the Boston area to watch the Patriots play the Steelers on Dec. 9? Fortunately, the NFL has rescheduled that game to 4:30, so Angela can attempt a compromise:
