I was screaming at my TV because I couldn't see what was going on in the last minute when the fans were standing. Ridiculous, sad that they didn't think that would be a problem and even more sad that it took this long for me to notice.

The guy had a very ugly back of the head too....

Even one foot higher would make a huge difference.

They did not anticipate people actually standing and showing emotion during a game.

Seriously it was like a morgue in there tonight.

People will continue to blame the suits; but the problem extends back to the last seat. The ACC is boring; the fans sit on their hands.

I kept standing up trying to see over their heads

Excitement makes me lose sense of reality.

Maybe they didn't want us to finish the game

First time I've seen this happen in a Leafs game. Maybe they changed camera location this season? If true, this will suck.

I thought I was the only one thinking it, horrible camera work, couldn't even see the puck half the time during the dying minutes.

My buddy texted me from Minny asking why it was so quiet on opening night and I had no real answer for him... Sad actually

Where were your seats? It was a pretty good atmosphere last night, far better than most nights.

I wonder with the camera if maybe they filled some seats that normally are left empty with the free tickets holders.

Sportsnet turns down the sound of the crowd so you can hear the announcers better. I don't know how many times I had to turn up the game, only to turn down the commercials. It was not THAT quiet in the ACC.

Fortunately people standing at the ACC is a very rare occurance.

For those old enough to remember the Gardens. That place was LOUD. The architecture of the building must have something to do with it too.

why doesn't someone write about this to the leafs brass or start some sort of petition. If I remember correctly, some fan submitted a suggestion about changing the centre ice logo to be a massive maple leaf instead of the two smaller leafs. The leafs brass looked at the idea and implemented it.

I have always hated the ACC camera angle... I have been a big fan of the camera angle in Buffalo.. not sure if anyone feels the same way but I would certainly welcome a change.

You just couldn't **** with the crowd in the Garden man...simply electric.

Hey corporate ********, screw you! Don't worry, you're allowed to yell a little bit, it won't crinkle your suit up too much.
