That game 7 between the Flyers & Bruins was shown at the Wachovia Center? I thought Versus (or was it the NHL) didn't want the game shown at the road team's arena?? Remember when they didn't allow the games in Pittsburgh shown on JoeVision last year??

Oh s*** I never knew why Joe Vision had been "cancelled"... So it's NBC's fault, motherf@$%^&*

WOW really? That's really, really stupid. What's next, they're going to prohibit people watching the games in bars that charge a door cover? I mean, it's basically the same f***in' thing.

Because those 16,000 fans are represented by a single screen to NBC ie 15999 less opportunities for cash. Additionally, that 10 dollars the arena charges doesn't go to NBC, it stays within the organization.

I don't think its too much to ask for a fee to make up for lost ratings, but they NBC needs to meet us in the middle. I think a good idea would be to broadcast from both the arena where the game is held, and the away team's arena to present the game, the rabid fans, and look like the good guy for allowing the game to be televised elsewhere.

Maybe they don't care until it's the Stanley Cup Final; the same way NBC doesn't care if it's a game on a weekday.
