SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

If you're on Dish the new beIN Sport US channel is the America Top 250 package. If you don't have that package the channel is currently on free preview on channel 408 meaning today you can watch live games between Blackburn and Leicester, Fiorentina and Udinese, Juventus and Parma and Mallaga and Mallorca.

Those are followed by delayed coverage of Nice against Lille and Rayo Vallecano against Real Betis.

Comcast has apparently signed on with beIN but I haven't seen an availability date yet. It will be part of the same sports package that includes Fox Soccer and GolTV.

At some point, will SpoFi need a full time point person to help members keep track of American collegiate sports conference realignments and the reshuffling of cable/dish broadcast sports packages?

Not volunteering for the job - I'm virtually Amish when it comes to these types of things.

I've heard of the "pull the chair" tactic used in basketball by a low post defender, but isn't using it in a photo shoot a bit much?

Ahhh, not an HD channel. No wonder I wasn't seeing it. Still nice to have options! Thanks for the tip, Mr. B.
