Nope. Bill Wirtz doesn't need TV- you aren't a real fan if you don't fly into to chicago and watch 40+ home games.

Chicago is the toughest team to be a fan of.

THis year because of Wirtz policy ...

Jan 11 to Feb 1 exactly one Chicago Blackhawks game on TV in Chicago market because of an extended homestand.

How can the casual fans even follow the team? Never mind make new fans.

There are a few other times where 7-10 days no Hawks on TV as well.

Because Wirtz has made purchasing the Hawks (or the NHL) look so unappealing that noone in their right mind would buy the team. Wirtz owns everything ... parking, concessions, beer, tickets etc etc etc ... he has companies set up that sell the food and booze to the Hawks and makes money off that.

You can bet if he sold the team he would want to retain ownership of the concessions and parking ... that makes Big money $$$. Wirtz made his $$$ in the booze business originally and still makes big money in Distributorships.

Wirtz is a dinosaur that lives in the 50's. The Hawk faithfull can only hope that Peter Wirtz (the son) will take over the team eventually and market the club (including TV) properly.
