Possible Reason For Njdevils Blacklisting.....
Posted 29 April 2003 - 09:00 PM
Well, as we all know, the NHL is sponsored by Southwest Airlines, and of course their ads are all over the place. We also know that the Devils play at Continental Airlines Arena, and they are sponsored by Continental. I'm willing to bet that the Devils signed some sort of deal saying their telecasts have to include at least X number of Continental ads, and, obviously, this clashes with the interests of the NHL.
It could also explain why we see so few game from the American Airlines Arena (is that Washington?) as well....
It sounds just like the kind of contract the Devils would sign... enough to keep the team afloat, but no further.

I don't think the Devils don't get mentioned on intermission reports, I haven't seen this happen.

"Bring Them On" sure George, your arrogant "my way or the highway" policies and remarks pissed the Iragi off more... 32 unnecessary US military deaths so far since G. W.'s remarks and dozens are wounded. It continues daily. Thanks Goerge. There are now 10-25 attacks against US soldiers daily.
Smart mouth, arrogant Bush, his kids are safe.
The BUCK never stops at BUSH if it's bad, he finds someone to take the blame for him, ie: Tenet's mea cupa.
Impeach G. W., the Iraq war was built on his lies...... lies........lies.
Do Not Re-Elect a Son of a Bush. Impeach him instead.

It's not. I shut this game off because it was so boring. I don't enjoy watching teams play to hold on.
The Devils will probably win the Cup and not many people will care.
I know what people will say. "Derek, you'd gladly take more wins for your Rangers if they played better D and backchecked effectively."
I would be happier if they won more games but it wouldn't be that enjoyable to watch if their style was totally defensive. It would still be dull hockey.
I hope my team hires a tough coach who preaches attacking, aggressive hockey with hitting and solid D because that's the most exciting brand of hockey a team can play. Play to win.
Why should ESPN be excited about a team that takes the fun out of the game???
