Hall of Fame sportswriter John Clayton went viral on Wednesday because of a tweet complaining about not being able to watch the Super Bowl. He complained that DirecTV is shutting him out due to a dispute with Cox TV.
Clayton is beside himself because of the thoughts that he might miss his first Super Bowl since 1983.
I can't believe my wife and I can't watch the Super Bowl because Directv and Cox tv cant reach a deal for channel 7 in Seattle. I've been to 45 Super Bowls. Missing my first since 1983. Locast is has problems connecting. I'm in the Hall of Fame. Directv is shutting us out.

This is the biggest tragedy by far of 2021. We can't have a Hall of Fame sportswriter not be able to watch the Super Bowl. This is making me sick to my stomach.
I hope someone finds an antenna somewhere and is able to connect it to a TV in his house so he can watch the game on his Hall of Fame sportswriter's throne!
