FSN Gets Colo. Crush Rights


FSN Rocky Mountain will televise at least 10 games per season of the Arena Football League’s Colorado Crush, the Denver team co-owned by John Elway, starting with the 2006 season.

Local telecast rights had been held by Comcast Corp. for Crush games that weren’t shown on FSN and NBC. As part of a new multiyear deal between the team and the regional network, FSN Rocky Mountain will carry at least five regular-season games plus five games available to it as part of FSN’s league-wide contract.

The regional channel’s Crush coverage includes game telecasts, pregame shows and postgame reports and will be distributed in several states in the Rocky Mountain region.
