'According to sources, Adelphia's options include putting the games on Empire and continuing the homegrown regional sports network for a year to see how things would work as cable's relationship with the sports industry changes locally and nationally. Another option would be to make a deal with a regional sports network such as YES or MSG by paying them the same subscriber fee it pays its own Empire to carry the games…A third option, which sources say might meet resistance from the Sabres, would be to put the games on a local access channel available on its systems. A fourth option would find Adelphia and Time Warner finding a creative way to make both sides happy in some sort of compromise.'
