Because he's referring to the number of tickets sold.



Well, of course.

But I remember when you couldn't get a Wings ticket. Now there are thousands of payed for but unused tickets sitting in corporate offices and bedroom dressers because Detroiters don't feel like going to see the game? WTF?

I'd rather watch an Arby's commercial 275 times straight than a report from Shannon Hogan in the stands.

Why do people always find something to complain about? Do you people hate life that much?

EDIT: Yes, I negged you both. Figured I'd make that public since nobody stops complaining about 'mystery negs'.

This is a thread of people basically listing things they dislike about the FSD broadcast. I find Hogan's reports to be useless and very poorly prepared. Sorry for wasting your precious time.

You can have your neg back too for complaining about "complainers".

I really don't pay much attention to the repetitive commercials or the dumb broads they give microphones to, so those things don't bother me.

What really does bother me is that they NEVER show the Anthems before the games.

I'd really be surprised if anyone even knows who the f*** Karen Newman is if they've only been watching games for a couple years and haven't been to one at the Joe.

Well there was a commercial with her around Christmas time.

But I agree with your point. I believe NBC and CBC show the anthems before games. FSD should as well

Geez. You spoiled brats. Who gives a damn about the commercials? You get to see the game for free! Perspective, people.

I dont hate John Keating like most people.

Oh, and if I ever see the Good Mood Food guy in public, he's getting an elbow to the teeth.

seems there should be something other than wings games for her to get some experience. she seems greener than about any tv person i have ever seen.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

This. I grew up around Detroit and moved after I graduated high school. The local adverts make it feel a little more like home, with the exception that I'll never get to go see the Wings' public outings. :(

.....besides Micky York/John Keating is the commercials. They are just....the worst. Spartan grocery stores, Miller Lite, all of those stupid dealership commercials. It seems like they show the same commercials on every break. It's like a nightmare for me.




F-U local sponsors.

Exactly. An entire thread at LGW to ***** about yet something else. Surprise! I come here for breaking Wings news and some of the community. Yet all I ever read when I open a thread is ***** ***** *****.

They do actually show them sometimes, otherwise I'd have no clue who Karen Newman is. I've only been to one game at the Joe.

you know you could just avoid the thread that is specifically about things that annoy us on fsd??? its a fun thread poking at stupid commercials and other general annoyances. maybe next you can go into the thread about the allstar game and complaining they are talking too much about who made the allstar team...

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Welcome to the world of television. Sponsors pay for spots, they play them. Local commercials everywhere are horrible. If you have Center Ice you know what I mean. At any rate, it sure beats listening to Olczyk and Pierre on NBC any day. I tend to enjoy Keating's awkwardly quirky remarks.


That s*** with Eddie especially has got to stop. NO hometown announcer should be allowed to do a network game. Ever. For any major sport.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Actually, it's about $170/season for me to add the Center Ice package to my Directv subscription including Florida's nifty 'it's not a tax' satellite tv use fee. Which is like real money for most folks.

Exactly. She did reports for the Tigers games at Comerica Park too this past year and they were just as bad. She seems like a nice enough person, but her interviews are brutal.

For accusing other people of hating life, you seem awfully bitter. Not reading or commenting in threads that don't interest you seems like a reasonable solution. This was a pretty light-hearted thread before you chastized everyone for "bitching".
