This is another nugget from the Bettman interview last night on the FAN590. He confirmed that the option for next year has been picked up, but definitively stated that the further options were not picked up at this time (contrary to the report that came from Multichannel News). He stated: 1. The way the contract is structured, the options are staggered. 2. As such, the further options are not able to be picked up at this time; it is not "timely". 3. When asked if Multichannel News had misstated it, he said he suspected that Versus had said that they had every expectation of picking up the options (which would not surprise him that they would hold that view).
