Of course there could be ways around it. I doubt that Premiere would check your ISP on IP-level, which would mean that you could try through a local contact. Dan surely has contacts in the Frankfurt area

It definately should have something to do with the rights. It's the same with NHL center ice or some of the TSN broadcasts, they can't simply show a product if they don't have the rights for it.


In other news, Hamburg's headcoach Bill Stewart was so unhappy with the first two games, that today's practise was 4 hours long. Though I have to say that video review was included, else that would be rather inhuman

I tried hard to and finally I liked it. Especially the Checking Lines did their job well.
When they stop making the few small mistakes in the D, everyone is going to hate playing against us.
It's tough to say, but even Chris Armstrong played solid.

I can of course not give you any rocksolid guarantees, but I would think that registering for the service on a German address could do the trick.

If they also take the trouble of tracing your credit card to an American address, then you may need to get your local German contact to pay for you.

If Premiere also traces you IP-number to an American location, then you could try fooling them through a proxy.

Plenty of options I would think

Dan: Ask Markus in the Lions Board.
He is quite experienced in Computer-related problems.
At least he knows someone who can solve you problem with a proxy.

I attempted to order a game online from Premiere and actually got to watch a choppy period until it cut out. When I emailed them I was told that only residents of Austria and Germany could order.

After tonight's 2-4 win in Wolfsburg, Frankfurt sits first in the league with eight points in three games. At least until tomorrow, when the rest of the teams play...

The most sucking thing about the Eagle's start is that it won't last throughout the whole season...

Why? I believe all Lions-fans and the Eisbären-fan (me) here, like the situation very much...

Okay, Mannheim is the Champion, only two players of last season's team left (Pelletier and Robinson), so they should really be better than it looks at the moment...

You can also have a look at these two sites for regular pictures of the DEL:
- RaymondTellers.nl
- US-sports.eu

Maybe Hacks or Hauser destroy the whole chemistry in the team or the true Greg Poss comes back.

Well well, look at that, Jean-Marc Pelletier with the gamewinner for Hamburg against Berlin

Apparently there was a delayed call against Hamburg, Berlin pulled the goalie and a pass accidently landed in their own net. Last season this wouldn't have been a goal, but they changed the rule before this season.

Not directly DEL-related, but it has something to do with some DEL-cities:

From Bob McKenzie at TSN:

Quote:
...Sources say the league is currently negotiating to place the 2008-09 regular season opener in one of three venues - either Prague, Stockholm or a German city from a group that includes Hanover, Munich or Frankfurt. ...
That seems a pretty weird choice of German cities. I'd understand Berlin, because Anschütz is opening the new arena next year, or Köln, maybe even Mannheim or Düsseldorf, even though those two might be a bit small for an NHL-game.

Unless they somehow manage to build a new arena before the next season starts, I can't see how any of those three mentioned cities has the size or the quality to hold an NHL-game. The arenas are either too small, too old or both.
