    So do we think the captains quitting the show is merely a bargaining chip to get discovery to drop the Hilstarnd lawsuit?

    WHAT??? I seem to have missed quite a bit. What lawsuit, and what captains are quitting?? In the words of the original Joe Schmoe ... "What Is Going On!?!?"

    I think it may be partially that, but I also think there's a lot of old-fashioned loyalty among the captains.

    Discovery Channel is letting corporate greed kill the golden goose. Deadliest has been their most popular shows for years and the one whose DVD's people buy. Whatever their beef with the Hilstrands is, it could have been settled in a more intelligent manner than to launch a 3-million dollar lawsuit.

    I won't watch DC without Sig or the crew of the Cornelia Marie, and Discovery Channel will have lost me. There is still the History Channel, PBS, Travel Channel and a few more from which to choose.

    Hopefully, reason will prevail.

    "Deadliest Catch" stars quit Discovery show
    By Matthew Belloni
    Wed Sep 29, 2:11 AM PDT

    A trio of stars of Discovery's hit reality series "Deadliest Catch" have left the show.

    Capts. Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand -- who were sued earlier this month by Discovery for allegedly not performing work on a planned spinoff special -- as well as Capt. Sig Hansen, said in a statement Tuesday that they were "unable" to continue on the series due to the litigation.

    "We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in 'Deadliest Catch,'" the three crab fishermen said in a joint written statement. "It has been a fantastic ride, and we wish the best to all of the amazing and supportive 'Catch' fans we have met over the years."

    A statement from Discovery was not forthcoming.

    The network sued the Hillstrands for $3 million claiming they failed to show up to finish work on "Hillstranded," a planned "Catch" spinoff. The Hillstrands' lawyer Jeff Cohen then called the suit an attempt to "extort" his clients and said the lawsuit could force them to sell their boats and fire their crews. Hansen, also repped by Cohen, later weighed in, backing the Hillstrands, slamming Discovery and saying, "I want people to know the captains stand together, and me and my brothers support them 100 percent."

    Hansen, captain of the Northwestern, has been a fixture on "Catch" since its first season premiered in 2005. The Hillstrands, captains of the Time Bandit, joined in Season 2. Filming on the seventh season of the Emmy-nominated series is scheduled to begin as crab season starts in October. But barring any reconciliation, it now appears the show will be down three captains (in addition to Capt. Phil Harris, who died earlier this year).

    Yep ... I wish the best to Jake and Josh, but if the Northwestern and Time Bandit are gone, so am I.

    I read somewhere that the CM IS coming back. I'm not sure who will be at the captain's helm, but someone will be. Without the Time Bandit and NW crew (Jake Anderson was one of my favorites), I may be out too.

    The only way I'll tune in is if Jake Anderson goes to the Cornelia. I think he likes that boat better anyway, and I cant stand to watch the way he's treated on the Northwestern.
