Still has nothing to do with his point. Home games on t.v. attract new fans is what he was saying.
#2 The majority of the public does not watch sports on streaming web sites. Watching Hockey in non HD is a chore not to mention some crappy stream. Everybody understands that the Hawks make money via advertising during home game. Where Bill's philosophy was broadcasting games hurt season ticket holders and that maybe it would draw more people to the stadium.
It wasn't some genius conclusion Rocky and McD came up with. They just did what every other team in the NHL was doing.
