Whoever fell for this is a moron, especially if you went to any legit hockey website prior to these forums.

I forgot anything about April Fool's Day, but this was definitely a red light crock of s*** when I saw it....

Looks like someone needs a hug. Poor guy.

The biggest April Fools day prank of all...

would be if this were legit. Largest prank pulled by the league yet.

So I got really pissed, sent a pissed off e-mail to all my friends about it, then figured I'd jump into the thread to listen to other pissed off people. Whoops.

Having to write the retraction e-mail was embarrassing as hell but still felt kinda good knowing it wasn't true after all.

Yep, got me too, way to go Matt.

The sad thing is, I don't think anyone would be totally shocked if the league actually allowed this to happen.

Had I not just endured 8 hours of April fools jokes at work, I probably would have fallen for it, but my BS sensor is in overdrive right now. It was a fantastic subject to base the joke on, though...nice one, Matt!

And no, the "serious" business of air traffic control is not immune from April fools. Just ask the pilots who tried to dial an 8 into their transponders today (pilots will get this). We also had a trainee who has only been in training for a few months (but has been doing really well) tell us he was up for a certification check today...that fooled lots of us. :lol:

Nice job!! I was ready to hunt down that waste of space Bettman and tie him to the goal during shooting practice. I actually heard something very similar to this on PTI , the possibilty of advertising on jerseys for all sports. Sadly, we will probably see this eventually. Just remember there wasn't always advertisements covering every inch of the boards and stadiums were occasionally named after the team or state that they inhabited.

ps. The Bettman idea is still very appealing to me considering all the other atrocities He's heaped upon Hockey and it's true fans.

It wouldn't be too bad, I mean soccer has advertisements on their uniforms.

But... I am pretty glad this was a prank... AWESOME JOB!

Wouldn't be too bad!?!? Dude don't compare the historic NHL with soccer. It's not like those soccer unis are from the early 1900s. My grandpa would roll in his grave if he ever saw the historic Red Wings jersey looking like a nascar. So yes, it would be VERY bad. Which is why the NHL will never let that happen. The history and tradition of the NHL is so unique. Advertisements plastered all over would be atrocious.
