    Calgary fan, living in Alaska. I see this evening's Flames-Canucks game is on here at midnight tonight. Obviously tape delay. What the heck, I start to watch.

    NHL Network doesn't remove the final score from the crawl! Halfway through the first period, I learn the Flames win 5-3! Basically wrecking my fun.

    NHL Network stupidity.

    If it's any consolation, NFL Network does the same thing.

    Hmm, lemme see, is that consolation....NOPE!

    Seriously, if the NHL Network is going to show these games on tape delay, they need to bust out some bananas and train the overnight monkeys to adjust the crawl.

    i hate that ticker.

    not only did it give away the result, but it also obscures the ice and covered the graphic when they showed the teams' lines. :nono:

    The NHL network crawl is ridiculously annoying to me compared to most other channels.

    Me too, probably because it's 5 times as big.

    Well since I'm one person at least who has been bashing NHL Network for their stupid HNIC decision let's at least give them credit for getting rid of their dreadful crawl, at least for tonight.....

    Is it me, or is the new NHLN logo they have in the bottom of the screen just like the old Versus logo (when it was OLN). Can the NHL ever get away from thinking Versus is the network they should presenting their product on?

    Although some what similar, the NHLN logo appears to be a puck.

    Agreed, I think its suppose to be a puck as well. Although I couldn't tell until I looked at it closely on the computer.

    I wish it was against the law to have that stupid crawl line,the weird thing with me is when i'm watching the news and read the crawl line i actually tune out the newscaster and dont hear what hes saying because i'm concetrating on what i'm reading!but ESPN and TNT have ruined tv watching for everybody i will always HATE them for this because now everybody does it!! stupid b******* dont those executives watch their own station? my guess is they probably watch the programs on a dvd without all that crap,which is why they dont care!!!!

    But the crawl is gone, isn't it? At least they got one thing right.
