ATTENTION!: Ice Picks Voting Campaign! READ

I am organizing a campaign to gather votes for the Sabres/Leafs game for ESPN2's Ice Picks.

As of noon today, the Sabres game is down by approximately 800 votes, which is still very close. So to help get our Sabres/Leafs rivalry some national attention here is what we're going to do.

EVERY SABRES FAN ON ANY MESSAGE BOARD:

LOG ON WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF THE END of the Sabres/Isles game and do the following to block ESPN's cookies that limit it to one vote per person:

1. Go to ESPN.com's NHL section HERE , where the poll is.

2. Copy the URL.

3. Select on the explorer toolbar "Tools" and select "Internet Options...".

4. Go to the "Privacy" tab.

5. Under the Web Sites area, to change which site you allow or disallow cookies for, click "Edit".

6. Paste the address into the first area and click "Block".

7. Go to the main ESPN.com/NHL page, and every time you vote, refresh the page, and cast another vote!

* You can also vote here: http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?page=icepicks

WE WILL DO THIS FOR 15 MINUTES.

If all fans do this, we should eliminate the gap and build a lead. This is our duty as Sabres fans! VOTE!

Do your part! A lot of out of town fans need to see this game!


Sincerely,
eSabre

well I've done my part. I've voted about 50 times between home and at work. With over 27000 votes, my 50 votes aren't making any difference. But if 50 of us voted 50 times each, that's 25000 votes, so come on and spend 15 minutes and stack up the votes!

opps , I meant 2500 votes not 25,000

I also just saw a small change in the percentage. But we're still down 3%

come on fans, get out and vote

I put in 25 votes, but it's never going to happen. The only way it's possible is if you could convince Leaf fans to do the same and they don't care because they don't get ESPN2.

Perhaps if posed as a question that speaks to them... like "Why not vote to put the Leafs dominance on display acrossed the lower 48? Recruit for the Leaf Nation now!" or something similar. And yes, that would have to completely ignore how they tend to lose in Buffalo, no matter who's playing.

If ESPN can't sell the US vs. Canada in hockey, they have problems.

Well, it only updates the vote count every couple of minutes.

And if it doesn't look like it's helping, 0.1% equals 30 votes for Buffalo/Toronto.

Keep at it!

The poll closes "10-14 days before the telecast", so anywhere between March 1st and March 5th.

Unfortunately, it's been about this bad the whole time.

I was just watching the Wild/Av's game on ESPN, and during the game Brian Englem mentioned the Ice Pick's voting for either the sabres/leafs or jersey/rags game. Anyway's he went on to say that more game's might be added to the voting. I wonder how this will affect the voting as it is now?
