I hate that **** when I see it on other teams' broadcasts. I had a feeling it would become more and more commonplace.

Disappointed that the Habs are doing it, but not surprised either.

As if the Habs don't make enough already from the Bell Centre ads.

Most old time fans said the same thing when they started to put ads on the boards. It took awhile, but eventually everyone just got used to it.

Now (for example) if I watch an old Habs game. It seems strange not to see ads posted on the boards.

I honestly don't care. When I see them at MSG or NYI, I kinda just don't notice it anymore. They'll make more money by running more ads. I thought you guys would expect this by now? Ads are everywhere, they are even in the video games we play.

I mean, it wont make the game exciting or less exciting. The only time I will notice it is when I am at the game it self.

Everyone wants more money so can't hate on them for doing it.

The only time I'll be VERY annoyed is when they are digitally added onto the boards like Dallas Stars games (or that photo above) then it gets freaking ridicilous.

Contrary. Electricity bills will increase. HIGHER TICKET PRICES FOR EVERYONE

You know how I know Montreal is in DEEP panic mode? People are complaining about electronic board ads.
