Please don't take away that I watch channel 5 sports, or agree with how they handle the preds.

My point was I think it incredibly juvinile and foolish to just bombard the guy. If he sucked, he wouldn't have held his post that long. He knew what his audience was-football loving joes, and catered to them. Smart move imo.

Other thing to consider, maybe he doesn't view hockey as a major sport. We all know it is, but to him it isn't. and if he is calling the shots for his station, the stories he chooses reflects that. Hockey is still growing here, but if you think it comes before NFL, college football, mlb, and nascar to the average fan sports fan, I think it is a naive thought. NHL may be closing in on nascar here, and I think another decent run may push it past there and mlb. but right now it isn't there, and until there is demand for it, you will keep seeing what you see.
