  1. Who should it be? Bettman's gotta go!! He has ruined and continues to ruin this league. *THREE LOCKOUTS* under his reign as commissioner! Fire Bettman!!!
  2. Is there anywhere or any way to watch this over the Web/Net if we don't get FSN??? Any help would be appreciated... GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. GDT

    EAT IT BETTMAN!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry you weren't able to hand your baby girl Cindy Crybaby the Cup. WAY TO GO WINGS!!!!!!!! what an amazing team effort... every player on our team played great and stepped it up a notch, and that's why we won. May this lift the spirits of all Michiganders!!!!
  4. I'm actually surprised that NBC showed all of the overtime play and didn't cut to "already schedule programming" before the game was over... seeing how ridiculous the NHL TV contracts have been over the past few years, and given <a href="">NBC's prior history of cutting away from important games</a>. I'm shocked... you finally got something right Gary Bettman!!! GO WIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNGSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! w w w . F i r e B e t t m a n . c o m
  5. Play Chelios instead of Lilja and bring up Ericcson and play him instead of Stuart... Stuart has been sloppy as a defenseman can be in the past 3 games. Helm, Hudler and Filppula had a great game tonight!!! they were the only ones still alive in the overtimes. Get some traffic infront of the net and drive to the net!!!!!!! GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! w w w . F i r e B e t t m a n . c o m
  6. Gary Bettman must be peeing his pants!!! Hope he enjoyed his last game ever in Detroit!!! I'm surprised he hasn't tried to adopt Crosby?
  7. how was that a penalty??? Radulov fell on his own.
  8. NBC is what you call over-commentating... stupid comments, favorism, trying to get too many words in... so annoying.
  9. I'd much rather him make himself noticed as an offensive player and not a little punk. PP coming up! game over. GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Hudler hasn't done squat this game... rest of the team has looked great!! GO WINGS!!!!!!!!! anyone see that "Def Leppard" ad on the boards in game 1? What was that about? It's not there today... it was right between the benches in game 1.
  11. Cheli's back!! PooPoo's punk ass is going down!!!
  12. Damn Dom!!! I don't know if he's good or just lucky sometimes... way to play a physical game Wings!!! that's what it's going to take to win... and Mac is back!!!!!! woooooooo woooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!! GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. If anyone listened to the NHL Hour with Gary Bettman today on XM Radio (or the direct internet feed from, I got on the air!! I asked about this whole mess of games that are on the NHL Network not being on Center Ice and how I felt it was a bait and switch tactic and that they were trying to make us pay even more to watch games... and how it is a ripoff. I would have gone on and asked more, but Mr. Buttman quickly said he would look into it and see what he can do... and then I was CUT OFF THE LINE!! they didn't give me any chance at all to reply or to even say 'thank you'. So I doubt anything is really going to be done about it... but I have a feeling Buttman gave the show producer the "cut the line" hand gesture while I was on the line... since he knew about this long ago with all of the emails that have been sent to him and he still hasn't done anything about it. ------------------------------------
  14. This is ridiculous. I can't believe (well, I can) that the NHL and Bettman have not fixed the issue of games being shown on the NHL Network (which hardly anyone gets) not being shown on Center Ice. We've been ripped off and given the bait and switch!! Below is a letter that you can copy and paste (and edit to your situation) to send to Gary Bettman at Dear Gary Bettman/NHL heads, At the beginning of this year's NHL season, I paid an additional $145 to my cable provider to receive the NHL Center Ice package... which was advertised as allowing me to be able to watch every NHL game this season. It has been great, and I really love being able to watch so much hockey... especially my favorite team, the Detroit Red Wings, since I no longer live in Michigan and cannot get the local television feeds. However, over the past couple months since the NHL Network has been introduced in the United States, there have been games that I have not been able to watch on the Center Ice Package... because they are only being shown on the NHL Network. I called my cable provider (Time Warner), and the friendly customer service representative told me that they do not offer the NHL Network to their subscribers yet. Even if they did -- as I assume based on the way it is with the cable/satellite providers that do offer the NHL Network -- it would cost me an additional monthly amount to subscribe to the NHL Network. This does not make sense at all to me and I think it is ridiculous, and ultimately, going to hurt the NHL fan base. Why should I have to pay more money than I have already paid, to watch NHL games, when I had already been told that I would be able to watch them all? Why isn't the NHL Network part of the Center Ice package??? Or why aren't the games shown on the NHL Network also shown on Center Ice??? Even if I could subscribe to the NHL Network, I wouldn't, because I feel like I am being completely ripped off. I am a huge hockey and NHL fan, and this whole TV debacle really makes me think twice about giving any more of my money to the NHL... to television subscriptions, to tickets to games, to apparel, or to anything NHL related. I know that many other fans are starting to think the same way. Look at a lot of the popular hockey markets... Detroit, Chicago, New Jersey, New York, etc... attendance is down this year because the game is just getting to be too expensive to be a fan of. These ridiculous bait and switch tactics with your television contracts is only making the situation worse. Your average hockey fan just can't afford to spend this much money, just to be able to watch the games at home on their television!! Wake up!! It really turns people off when you rip them off by pulling a bait and switch and not providing them with a product that was promised, and then to make them pay more for what they originally thought they would get. Every hockey fan would truly appreciate any and every effort you could make to straighten this situation out and let fans watch the games that they were promised... I am going to miss another game tonight... the Red Wings vs. St. Louis ... because this game is on the NHL Network, and NOT ON NHL CENTER ICE!!! Do I have any other options??? Sincerely, A very concerned and upset hockey fan... (and maybe not one much longer) ---------------
