    Ergen may have won a major poker match with Son and Hesse

    He may have bid his way into a deal with Son and Sprint without actually paying any of the billions he put out on the table. If I'm right, your stock is going to reflect this tycoons jostlings in short order.

    • He needs a wireless provider to carry his DISH signal. Right now bothDIRECTV and DISH do allow some reception on tablets and phones if you are a subscriber without an increase in fees. He wants phone users to have access wo a subscription with a la carte fees which are always higher. I think at this time it is a tie. T-Mobile does not have the subscription base nor the money to modernize its system. Thats where he is going to go but it will cost him a lot in capital costs to bring them up to the standards of even lower rated Sprint.

      • Sprint needs T mobile. Son may have given Ergen a deal for access if he refrained from further bidding for Sprint and Clearwire, and then T mobile. Sprint needs DISH spectrum as well if it is going head to head with Verizon. I think they are best served playing nice. Ergen gets what he wants and his powder remains dry, and Softbank saves billions not brawling with Ergen.

    • Many situations are possible. If anyone knows what exactly Ergen will or will not do it's Charlie himself. I own Clearwire stock and will not vote to accept Sprint's $5 offer.
