Regional Sports Fee

Why do we have to pay a regional sports fee when there aren't even any live sports right now?  Even if times weren't tough, I don't care less about lining the pockets of RSNs, get rid of this garbage.

"The regional sports network fee is based on the costs Xfinity pays to carry regional sports channels in each area, regardless of what is or is not aired.  Once the NBA, NHL, and MLB announce the course of action for its seasons, including the number of games that will be played, Xfinity could received rebates or price adjustments from the regional sports networks.  Just as we pass on costs of carrying these networks to our customers, we will also pass along any savings from rebates or price adjustments we receive."
