Let's see if the Generals have any sort of say or care.
It's official. There's no way to get these stations down here. I tried for hours on all cable providers in the area. Not even possible to pay for an extra sports package unless you want Center Ice. I've known this forever but I decided to make it 100% and waste my entire day.
How can you market the team as "Jersey's Team" when over half the state cannot watch the games? I'm fed up with this bullsh!t. I'm not paying 200 bucks for standard definition Center Ice when they are the only hockey team that plays in this state.
You saw the outcome of the viewing party. Over 50 fans were there to see the Devils win. I know tons of fans. Even more so, there's a lot of young fans that end up liking the flyers since they are the only team on TV.
Do something about it. The team would gain mass exposure and fans if only they were accessible to the rest of the state.
It needs to happen.
Yeah, in the few times I've had the actual desire to venture into the 609 area code, especially near Atlantic City, there are way too many orange and white wearing cheesesteaks walking around. Makes you forget you're actually still in Jersey. I know the team plays in Newark, over an hour and a half drive north for most people down there, but it's hard to call it Jersey's Team when half the state is even excluded from watching on TV!
