My worry with Dish is if they would have enough money after the purchase to turn Sprint around. Right now Sprint really needs a major cash injection to speed up LTE deployment to remain competitive. I just don’t see Dish having those kinds of funds after spending $25.5 billion to purchase Sprint.
If your evidence is going to be based on movie gross then murder/torture is also popular(Saw). People go to movies to escape their reality, not because they support what actually happens in the movie.
