A plea to NESN...attn: Dale Arnold!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE someone tell NESN not to take up half of the g-damned screen every freakin' 5 minutes to update the scores!!!!!!

It is ridiculous and it has to stop! I DON'T FREAKIN CARE WHO IS WINNING THE DUCKS-RANGERS GAME AND I CERTAINLY DONT NEED TO BE UPDATED ON IT EVERY OTHER SHIFT!!!!!!!!!!

Go over the scores in between periods because anyone who cares either A) has the internet or
B) has Center Ice or most likely.....
C) Has both and is a capable adult who can find the scores themselves.

Now that I am done venting....heckuva game tonight!!

I agree.That bothers me too, especially when they do it during powerplays.

Yeah, I don't understand why they have to stack one team name on top of the other like this:

Montreal 0
Philadelphia 5

Why can't they put the team names side-by-side like everyone else does?

Montreal 0 Philadelphia 5

Wouldn't that take up FAR less space? Seems pretty simple to me.

I think every fan I've talked to has been annoyed by that scoreboard. Also, what happened to the Power Play time on there? They used to show time left on the penalty, they no longer do that.

Oh, and the LONG LONG instant replays, to which we miss about 30-40 seconds of action. The non goal instant replays aggravate me the most.

Someone ought to tell Andy Brickley to not be so long winded as well, and pay attention to the screen sometimes. Last night, they showed Bergeron's family three times, and he was going on and on about some other topics, not acknowledging the family at all.

I wish Dale and Gord did both home and away games. I don't mind Shea so much, but Brickley has this need to prove how smart he is by doing his "homework". He gets so damn long winded, I must confess I've yelled at the tv a few times telling him to shut up (like he can hear me)

I sometimes wonder if Brickley watches the same games we do...
