    A tale of two league's marketing strategies to grow the game with their younger viewers:

    NFL: "Let's put a game on Nickelodeon to attract kids!  We can put on fun, Nickelodeon-themed graphics, have age-appropriate announcers/sideline reporters and just make it a blast to watch for them!"

    NHL: "Let's put a game on that requires not one, but TWO subscription services that their parents have to buy and have Leah Hextall announce it!"

    Was weird seeing so many people complain about the Nick NFL broadcast. I'm not an NFL fan but it's not like people were forced to watch that broadcast alone. 

    Nick could do their version of the fox glow puck with slime if the NHL ever put a game on there lol

  2. What an absolute embarrassing mess in Virginia on 95, some people stuck in their cars for over 24 hours in freezing cold weather. They didn't salt or have plows ready to go in advance knowing there was gonna be some snow(not even a lot of it either)

    I like that "Egads" is a separate line item lol. 

    So basically we can summarize it as such:

    1. Everyone who has been good in the last few games minus Jack is now out.

    2. Pavel Zacha is out, but you already thought he was out anyway. 

    3. Fvck hockey. 

    4. We have random people on Twitter breaking all this news because we don't have any actual reporters covering this team.

    Lol what in the fvck. Nico has a broken fvcking foot? Did it happen in the locker room after the Caps game? What in the hell. 

    Anyone have any ideas for how long these things will take to heal?

    He blocked a shot in the last game, was in quite some real pain cause they showed him hobbled over on the bench during the broadcast. Probably decided to just play through it and took the skate off after the game and that was that.

    Didn’t see the game but come the duck on, suspend him already:

     

    I hope he doesn't get suspended so everyone on that reddit thread crys harder about it.

  6. Someone did a side by side, I wouldn't call this a prediction though, they probably saw Patton's segment and just decided to do it lol...

    I find it kinda hilarious and somewhat creepy the constant hate towards Amanda when Erica Wachter is arguably just as garbage and she's way more in the spotlight. Another blonde robot to regurgitate the same post-game drivel "SO HOW IMPORTANT WAS IT TO GET THIS WIN?!" hurrr idk you tell me Erica?

    This is television sports reporting everywhere, it wasn't any different when it was Matt Loughlin asking the questions. The TV broadcast crew is always going to be skewed to homerism. 

    It's the independent of the team reporters that this team is missing. Those are the ones that should be asking the tougher questions.

    My wife’s cousin is a big Wild fan, and he went up there for the game. Have fun with that sh!t :lol:

    I went to the Yankee Stadium game and that was cold cause of the delay and I've been to other really cold Red Bulls game but nothing like negative degrees. Sounds absolutely miserable lol

    They are even heating the ice lol...

  9. Maybe I'm just remembering wrong and I know the team fudges the numbers anyway but I just don't remember New Year's Eve games being an instant sellout no matter what they say or put as the attendance numbers. Hell a lot of people don't even get the day off today either. I know they won today and last game but who is using a day off to come watch this team play with the current state of how they are and everything else going on in the world.

    Looked up the past games... 

    2019 - 16,514

    2018 - 15,722

    2016 - 16,514

    2013 - 16,592

    2011 - 17,625

    2010 - 13,492

    I wouldn't give them too much props for this.  They were forced to do this as Baraka signed the mandate that begins on 1/10/22.  If it wasn't for that mandate they would likely have kept the current policy.

    Oh no I agree with that, that's why they clearly say mandated by Newark. I should have been more clear, I meant how they handled season ticket holders from the beginning when they weren't going to originally let people keep their seats and roll over money for sths vs to changing their stance on allowing it.

    Prudential Center just made it official.

    Starting 1/10/21, all guests five years and older must be vaccinated and masked the entire time.  You need at least 1 dose to attend.

    Starting 2/10/21, all guests five years and older must have at least two doses and masked to attend games.

    Yup, I really don't think attendance will be affected by this as much, MSG and UBS haven't if it's something people want to see, if anything the awful on ice product is going to be the main thing keeping people away. 

    I know you're not big on the owners and I'm whatever on them but the front office has come around and handled all of this better than they started with. I was able to just skip this season entirely and keep my seats and have my money pushed over to next season. I'm hoping the 22-23 season will be more normal. 

    I'm glad these rules are in now but I'm still happy I just had everything rolled over, between what's going on off the ice and their play on the ice, I simply just can't justify going this season. 

     

     

    Here's the full email they just sent out...

    We would like to update you on the new entry policy, beginning on January 10, 2022, for all Prudential Center & New Jersey Devils events as a result of requirements imposed by the City of Newark.

    To comply with the Mayor of Newark’s recent Executive Order, all guests aged five (5) and older entering Prudential Center will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19. This policy will go into effect starting with the Devils’ home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on January 10, 2022. Additionally, the city of Newark’s previous order requiring all guests to wear masks throughout events, unless actively eating or drinking, will remain in effect.

     

     

    Upon entry between January 10 and February 9, all guests must show proof of having received at least one COVID-19 vaccination dose. Fans attending events on or after February 10 must show proof of being fully vaccinated (two doses of an approved two-dose vaccine or one dose of an approved one-dose vaccine). Proof of vaccination can be provided via display of an actual vaccination card, a complete picture of the card or an online digital vaccination record, along with an accompanying photo identification for those age 18 and older. Exemptions will be provided to those guests who provide a certification signed by the guest and a licensed healthcare provider certifying that receiving an approved vaccine would be detrimental to the health of the guest and that the healthcare provider has medically advised the guest not to receive any vaccine. 

    Prudential Center’s priority is to ensure the health and safety of all patrons, staff, players, artists and partners at all of our events. Entry protocols are subject to change based on additional mandates imposed by local government and health officials. For complete Prudential Center health and safety protocols, as well as specific questions regarding the City’s policy, please visit PruCenter.com/safety.
