Time Warner would have to give me the NFL Network before they can take it.

TW is one of the major cable providers that has been in the big hubbub with the NFL over offering their channel. Although I would love to have the NFL Network, I personally side with the cable companies on this one. NFL IMO is throwing their weight around a bit too much on this issue.

I don't know the exact issue, but it seems that the NFLN wants to be as prevalent as ESPN but wants to charge like 3 times the rate.

The market will end up making the decision for them in the long run, as it always does. Once the people decide "en mass" what they really want, and if it is worth it , then the cable guys will defer to the NFL. The NFL can throw their weight around because they are the most popular sport in America, they have a product that people want to see 24/7...and the people who want the product are willing to pay for it. It is really just simple Economics.
