Per Fox Sports Detroit, of significant note to Red Wings fans who subscribe to Dish Network:
FOX is currently negotiating with DISH Network regarding the terms by which they carry its cable networks FX, National Geographic Channel and the 19 regional sports networks, including FOX Sports Detroit. The deadline for this negotiation is 3:00 AM Eastern tonight/tomorrow morning. If DISH Network fails to reach fair agreements with FOX, their subscribers may lose access to programming on the affected networks as of Friday, Oct. 1. Negotiations are ongoing and hope this issue can be resolved.
Only DISH Network subscribers could lose FX, National Geographic Channel and FOX Sports Detroit programming. All other systems will continue to receive FOX Sports Detroit and the other networks mentioned.
DISH customers can get more information and leave a comment at the following website: www.GetWhatIPaidFor.com. Or, by calling 1-877-99-IPAID (1-877-994-7243)
Affected games initially would be:
- Tigers: Friday thru Sunday at Baltimore
- Red Wings: Friday vs. [Toronto] on FS Plus (preseason); Sunday vs. Pittsburgh (preseason); Oct. 8 vs. Anaheim (regular season opener); Oct. 9 at Chicago .
- Pistons – Tuesday at Miami (vs. LeBron & company)

It’s a little simpler than some of the entries, but Courtney Fathers’ Wings jersey font wins out because…I just dig it:
