The new Marquee Network has faced obstacles, the most pressing of which relate to coverage carriership for local fans. Ricketts on 670 The Score Saturday morning did say, though, that he expects a deal with Comcast to be completed soon.
Tom Ricketts said he's "pretty confident" the Marquee Network and Comcast will reach a deal.
