Just another example of what that idiot Bill Wirtz did when he fired Foley. As I've said before, the BEST thing that happened to the Blackhawks AND the NHL in the last 50 years? The death of Old Man Wirtz.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

remember. some penalties are co-incidental where there is no loss of man power, just 5on 5, so Doc is correct in what he says....
PS isn't it the worse looking toupee that Chico wears. Instaed of using his money for buying food that we have to watch him gouge himself, he sould buy a nicer mop for his head

The new FCC rules also make outages like this to happen again.

Also what role did the new FCC rules have in VS coming back as there was a lot moment right around the time that the court made that rule.

Was there some Na na na na, na na na na we don't need to play VS to get CSN Philly?
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

The FCC rules only pertain to local must have channels...RSNs for the most part.

Versus is a national network and is not affected.

What he means I think, are the rules the FCC just re-crafted to close the so called terrestrial loophole in order to force channels like CSN Philly to be offered to DirecTV and Dish, and the proposed rules that mandate that disputed channels stay up during carriage disputes. I believe there might be an arbitration clause in there somewhere, but not sure.

I noticed that as well. When they have the NESN feed from Boston, it usually looks great. So it can't be the lighting in the arena.

Yes they did reward us! Despite what the Bruins color commentator called 2 garbage goals. I call them hard working goals that weren't pretty, but not garbage.

Versus PQ in general is just not as good as that of NESN or MSG. Not sure what it is but its definitely a step down, both in white balance and in sharpness.

You know what they saw about garbage goals - did the puck cross the line?
