Wings Welcome new partnerships

Other elements of the deal include virtual signage for Quicken Loans and Fathead that appear on the end glass in Red Wings’ home game broadcasts on FOX Sports Detroit, LED dasher board signage, radio commercials, print and Web advertising, external pole banner advertising from Compuware Center (Quicken Loans headquarters) to Joe Louis Arena in downtown Detroit, signage during College Hockey at the Joe contests, inclusion on the Red Wings general and targeted fan emails, and Fathead product placement in Detroit Red Wings retail outlets. Quicken Loans and Fathead will also receive tickets to Red Wings' home games and have committed to using them in community relations efforts throughout the season.


:thumbdown: I hate those LED signs on the boards and the ads on the glass on FSD.

If that means less Sam Bernstein, I'm all for it.

Edit: Oh, I thought this was for FSD. Still the same amount of Sam Bernstein, I'm sure.

He's a lawyer. That puts him in the same category as Bettman, GMR, and Abe Lincoln.

Draw your own conclusions. I just confused myself.

Sam's ok by me. His advertising campaign, however, is annoying as hell. Every commercial break, a Sam Bernstein commercial that's at least at a 50% higher volume than the game (a lot of commercials on FSD are like that though).

The "Call Sam Studios" is a stupid name.

I hate excessive corporate sponsorship in general.

That has to do with the compression settings on the FSDs audio equipment, not the advertisers commercials themselves.

Are you sure? Most commercials are allowed to be played at the highest volume of the last 30 seconds or two minutes of the show (I forget). So if there was a crazy play and Ken Daniels got excited, those commercials are going to be consistently as loud as his call. I hear Congress is passing a law to reduce it, but that's how it stands right now.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

New e-book: The Spanish-American War: A Brief History. Relatively short, introductory read for casual history buffs and people who want to learn more about a forgotten war that changed America. Available at BN.com, Smashwords, Kobo, and Diesel E-Books right now. Same link as above.

I had the imnpression that the new law would have a similar loophole, where the commercial can be as loud as the loudest portion of the broadcast.

I don't understand why the FCC just doesn't make a standard. All show will be broadcast at this volume, and leave it up to me to determine how loud I want it based off that. If these commercials keep getting louder, technology will prevail. Onkyo, Sony, Denan, etc will come out with receivers that regulate the broadcast volume, and they will make good money doing it.
