There's obviously an opening there for Sattelite networks, if they would quit making unforced errors like not carrying the regional sports networks.

That could be because they're having trouble raising money and/or because there is disagreement among members of the board, but I think at least one of those two things (and possibly both) is standing in the way of another bid.

But even so, things could change. New money could be freed up or the hold-out board members could be convinced to bid one more time.

But I believe that if they had a clear path to another bid, they would have let people know that so that the process wouldn't go too far before they had a chance to offer that bid.
It's fine for them to come back with a much higher FINAL bid at a later date but if they were to do so then shareholders would have wanted to know by now that they are still working on something.
