Wha, Wha, What did he say again????????:shock:If Howard goes to XM, Sirius probably fades away and everything eventually gets signed up by XM. Does XM eventually fade away? Who knows.
If Howard went to neither, nothing drastic would have happened.
It's like saying "If I walk around the block counter-clockwise, about halfway around the block, a car will almost cut me off as I cross the street and i'll slip on the ice and break my leg. However, if I walk around the block clockwise, that same car will be there. However, I could be slightly ahead of the car, or slightly behind the car. If i'm slightly ahead of the car, the situation could be better, or worse. If i'm behind the car, the situation could be better, or worse."
It's all speculation. Did Howard (and his subscribers) play a big role in the merger? Yes. Were Howard and subscribers 100% the reason for everything "Sirius" on "XM Everything" or "Best of Sirius?" Probably not.
