This "loss" of revenue, is based entirely on the "vision" of creating a PAC 12 Network, owned solely by the conference, which would license broadcast rights to actual networks, and would create and sell (sponsorships on) its own content, on its own network.
As we now know, this concept ONLY works if you have a product which is either A. part of a profit sharing arrangement (with Disney, CBS, etc.), so it gets promoted, and/or B. if your own network has broad reach and market penetration.
Scott failed to implement the vision or plan, got stuck on the MFN provision regarding DirectTV, and further paid himself as if he were a huge success. (Perhaps some objective, performance benchmarks should have been provided in his contract?)
My opinion of Crow has fallen considerably since it has been confirmed repeatedly, that he was a big supporter of Scott's. The PAC 12 is not in a hole, compared to - what we think should be - its peer group of conferences. (I don't think the SEC, Big 10, etc., think of the PAC12 as a peer competitor.)
