Mr. Bittle, we try to spread the pain.
We try first of all not to have two debates on any one night, no two debates on a Tuesday, for instance. It's not just the networks' commitments, it is also federal and religious holidays, obviously, in October. It is a very, very difficult task. I've had some very colourful conversations with senior network executives who don't think we quite understand what we're doing here.
Last time I actually volunteered to make one of America's most loved colour commentators on NFL the debate moderator, which didn't seem to go over at that network with the amusement that I thought it carried, but whatever.
You sit down basically 18 to 20 months ahead of time, and try very hard to look at what you can know. Here's one of the dilemmas: Built into the baseball series schedule are travel and rain days. What happens if it's done in five games? What happens if it goes to six or seven games? You inevitably are going to run into something. You just are. We try to run into the fewest number of things. We try to keep open lines of communication. If someone wants to call and use colourful language to say how they feel about it, they are more than welcome to do that.
It's inevitable that you will run into something. You just try to do it in a way that is fair and respectful.
