Should I sue Nbc or Espn? regarding blackout

I am really pissed off right now. I live on the West Coast and this whole week Nbc has forced Espn to black out their Wimbledon coverage. This is totally unfair. East coast viewers get to watch twice the tennis West Coast viewers get. The only reason I pay for cable tv is because its the only way I can view tennis on U.S. Tv. Now it seems I have to live in a particular geography of this country in order to watch something I pay every month for. Now who should I sue Nbc who probably strongarmed Espn into cutting tv coverage. Or Espn who probably takes money from Nbc under the table.

There's a lot of tennis that's not broadcast live. It's a dead sport in the US.
In a few years, most tennis will be on the Tennis Channel.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
