The Boston Red Sox have the largest fan base but look to expand it further. To honor those senior citizens who do not have viewer access to the New England Sports Network, and also the future fan base members who also may not have that access, it would stand to reason that putting 15 (or so) games back on free, over-the-air television in the 2009 season would make sense for all.
We, the undersigned, ask this, and contend that it would likely not affect attendance at Fenway Park, nor would it lead to a desertion of New England Sports Network subscribers. We also feel that this would not be a charitable move on the part of the Red Sox, but a wise business and public relations decision in establishing a limited schedule televison network throughout New England.
By signing this petition, you urge the Boston Red Sox to move approximately 15 games from the New England Sports Network tier to one or more over-the-air broadcast outlets in the greater Boston, and New England area.
