Preserve Western New York Sports Programming sign now

We the undersigned would like to express our concern about reports that the Madison Square Garden network might acquire the television broadcast rights for the Buffalo Sabres. Reports state that if such a move is made the Empire Sports Network would be dissolved. The loss of the local sports programming provided by the Empire Sports Network; specifically the Empire Sports Report, the Sabres pre-game report, Hockey Hotline, the Simoncast, Empire presents and game coverage of the Buffalo Bisons would greatly diminish the fans ability to follow the Sabres, the Bills and other regional teams (including local high school and college sports). Such regional coverage is an asset to the greater Buffalo area. There are also many Western New York sports fans spread out across the country that follow their teams through Empire's coverage. The Empire Sports network may be considered a regional network but it has a national reach through satellite and streaming web simulcasts of its programming. The loss of Empire would also deprive the fans of an important outlet to express their opinions, concerns, address the management, coaches and players of the Bills, Sabres and other regional teams directly through Empires programming.

We the undersigned wish to express our support of such local sports programming and would like it to be known that we wish to preserve it as it is on the Empire Sports Network or as part of the Madison Square Garden Network.
