Montana’s senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus says it just isn’t right that most Montanans will not be able to watch the Bobcat and Grizzly football teams advance through the playoffs due to ESPN’s decision not to air the first and second-round playoff games on cable.  “In the spirit of teamwork and good sportsmanship, I’m hoping ESPN will rethink its decision and work with Montanans to make sure fans are able to support their teams through the playoffs,” Baucus said. “It’s time for a timeout so we can take a look at this game plan and make sure it works for Montanans.”

Today, Baucus vowed to work on a solution that includes encouraging ESPN to listen to hear from Montanans as it formulates its post-season broadcast options.
