So I've been following the lock out as close as any real hockey fan and since Bill Daly and S.Fehr started meeting in undisclosed locations, leading to the "big shots" doing the same, I've gotten a feeling that the media ( tsn, espn, sportsnet) have totally been shut out and are now just running on fumes while trying to maintain ratings and attention.
It seems, to me, that the NHL-NHLPA have totally shut out the reporters who still have a job to do so they're simply trying to keep us paying attention to their news stories and tweets.
People who are following the lockout closely want information all the time everyday. Since there are no longer media reports by the NHL(PA), of course they will just be rambling on. If they didn't, there would be a bigger outcry about them doing nothing.
I would rather they be reporting that stuff as opposed to a 50/50 split and a "make whole provision" or Revenue Sharing.
i mean yeah. it would be nice to have some hockey again, but i thought i would take the opportunity to gripe about the usual tsn, sportsnet, etc. stuff.
here's my pledge:
if we have a season, and they start in on all this discussion about suspensions, and dirty hits, etc. i will start complaining to the networks. sometimes they listen. i once complained to the fan about having Paul Hendrick as a guest on their show. they haven't had him as a guest since.
