Lets get out of the tainted cos1000 thread, and begin a new day with new hopes.
I dont feel the Malone deal is doomed, in fact I feel it is beyond a done deal. There is language in the filing that covers all events, some uncontrollable by SiriusXM. These are to protect them from lawsuits at all times. Since they are already being sued, and have sued themselves to avoid being sued, we know the BOD main concern has always been about themselves, and preserving their ability to remain rich, and out of jail.
Since the MSM isnt sniffing BK anymore, I would assume we are safe, for if it were an option thats all we would be reading about. I dont think Q4 will show declining subs, and I feel the COH will be strong as well(as of now, not Q4 ending.) Since we only have a few more days to wait, there is no need to panick with any new rumors with no facts to go on. If you take the filings for their word, they warned of BK after filing Q3 of last year. And here we are today. No way Mel takes the BK route. Avoiding government intervention in this company is vital to its survival. Bandwidth could be revoked, etc... Mel would take the Ergen deal before BK. And I still wish Ergen would have won. The Malone deal is done.
