Gulfport, Mississippi city council unanimously passes a resolution demanding the local cable provider carry the new SEC Network.

Even hurricanes can’t diminish the importance of football in Mississippi.
The resolution passed unanimously as did the one recognizing Billy Weaver for obtaining a Boy Scout merit badge and the one calling to replace and not repair the front left tire on the city truck. Government for and by the people.
Maybe the city council could pitch in a few bucks then? I want my SEC TV like other UGA grads but I also recognize that the price of the network will be quite high, especially for the non-major TV providers.
I am sure the city constituents will be complaining to the council shortly when their local cable providers agree to have the SEC Network than jack up everyone’s bills the following month (then again, the rates will be raised anyway)
It is east to see why people not from the south make fun of those of us who are. We give them plenty of free ammo.
Dire Straits reference?
Money for nothin’ and checks for free. Sounds like both our last 2 DCs to me.
This will be interesting this summer. The cable company where I live down here in SouthGa doesn’t carry “additional” networks such as ESPN classic, ESPN news, NFL network, and many others. I’m interested to see if they will carry SEC TV. If the don’t, there will be a serious fuss.
If they carry ESPNU, I’d imagine they’ll carry SEC TV. ESPNU shows a ton of games during the season
So is Kiffin “that little f_ggot” with his own jet airplane?
You’re not one of the Normaltown Flyers are you?
No. But my nom de plume is an homage to Normaltown. The best & least appreciated old neighborhood in Athens.
He’s certainly a millionaire.
I have Comcast. I like it. I will not pay extra for the SEC network if they place it in the sports package.
I am easy I have Comcast now but I will change to whichever service cable or satellite that will have the SEC network. Comcast is already getting prepared as they have announced the end of CSS. I hate it because it was probably better then the SEC network will be.
It’s obviously an election year. Surprised more politicians don’t get on this bandwagon.
