Currently, FOX has the team’s broadcast rights through the 2013 MLB season. Under the proposed plan, FOX would have a 45-day window to negotiate a new deal with the team. If the two sides are unable to reach a deal, the media rights would be auctioned off. Proposed bidders include DirecTV, Time Warner and Dish Network, according to the filing.
A hearing is set for next month. The money generated from the auction would go towards paying off creditors, leaving McCourt with enough left over to operate the team.
This could be a worst-case scenario for Dodger fans, who are frankly fed up with the dysfunctional McCourts.
