Probably a dead horse, but Rinkside View SUCKS!!!!!

I have really had it with this garbage.

Angles are terrible.

You cannot see the plays develop.

Camera operators cannot follow the puck, neither can we.

There was one play, and I don't remember who the players were, but it might have been Calder and Brown. One of them passed the puck across the slot to the other who missed the net and you had no idea because the camera was still trying to find the puck. Any sort of a back door play like that just looks ridiculous with these angles because you have no shot of seeing it developing.

Another one was the questionable offsides call against Calder late in the 3rd. Kyle seemed to think he was onside bet we'll never know because you can't see important things like offsides from behind the net.

There was another offside in I believe the second where Kopi was offside and you couldn't even see him in the shot.

The play where Simmonds almost put the puck in and then Zeus had a chance to possibly stuff it in was a great play, but because of that angle you couldn't even see Zeus until after the play was over.

When they try to show goal mouth scrambles from a camera at center ice it is 100% impossible to see where the puck is (not even approximately) or to see the puck possibly go in the net because there are a pile of bodies between you and the puck all blocking the view.

I can't believe the NHL let's them do this since they depend greatly on TV replays on goal disputes. There is no camera that would show a conclusive angle if there was a "Stick above the crossbar" dispute, save the one at the other end of the rink, but how good can that be from 200ft.? I don't think it would be good enough but I could be wrong.

Somebody with some inside has got to tell FSN to give it up. It does not work. I asked Rich Hammond during his live chat tonight and he said and I quote... "I agree, it is pretty amazing that Fox doesn't listen to the will of its fans. There aren't enough hockey fans to begin with, an they're alienating a good percentage of them."

agree - it is difficult to watch.

I would like it if they did it once in a while, like maybe during a powerplay or a breakout, etc., but to show those views for all 60 minutes really takes it out of you.

When they switch from behind one goal to the other goal, you always have to remind yourself "ok, we're going away from the camera,... now we're coming toward the camera." For an entire game?

It gives me a headache.

I try to watch some Kings games on my Center Ice package, that Rink View camera angle is horrible. It is impossible to follow what is going on...

Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Just do a hockey broadcast already...

I didn't watch last night because it was broadcast solely in Rinkside View and that's exactly what I told him in the email.

I had a headache by the time the 2nd period rolled around. It'd be better if they had more cameras along the sides. To have only one camera at center ice isn't enough.

Did anyone else not get the HD feed? I normally do, but for some reason my FSWHD decided to say "no programming was schedule" and then the screen went black. I live in San Diego and have Time Warner.

As far as Rinkside, I hated it in HD but i LOATHE it in regular programming. It was barely watchable w/o the HD feed.

I find it OK in small doses. But I hate the fact that, when the play moves abruptly from the defensive zone to the offensive zone, I have to wait five seconds to find out whether the Kings have a breakaway or a 2-on-2.

Maybe the movement and such that many complain give them motion sickness or a headache has no effect on me because I'm an avid gamer and such movements on my computer screen I've grown quite used to.

I don't think it would be too bad if they could mix some of the angles into the standard telecast. Some of the angles I like but others are horrible. The worst has to be the one right behind the net it's just a blind shot and you can't see anything.

I can live with it provided they never, ever use the center ice cam.

It took me a couple of times before I finally realized what rinkside view reminds me of - watching a game with binoculars.

It sucks

This is so AWFUL
to see ANY play, you have to wait till the play is stopped, and they show it from the real camera after for commentary/analysis
GOD DAMMIT WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?!
